It’s Clanger Time! 25 Nov 2006
This year was no exception; Martin Makey, as last year’s malefactor, ( now what was that for? didn’t he leave the bungs out and consequently, sink? Can’t quite remember…) had the honour of presenting the embarrassing facts to an eager, anxious audience. There was plenty to choose from, including groundings (a lot), sinkings (several), near misses (too many), the possibility of handbags at dawn (more exciting than a proper protest) and some ripe language! However…
Over to the Commodore.
“Here is an envelope containing the nominations- I was a bit concerned that I might have forgotten them by now. I will only read out the names of those individuals receiving a nomination. It gives you a chance to make an enormous contribution to the Dragon funds if I can be persuaded not to take this further. In no particular order the nominations are (opens envelope):
Roger Clark in Mithrandir for calling out the lifeboat.
The team in Hand of Fortune for losing their skipper out the back in grand style.
David Hall in Flame Again for setting off the flares after breaking a runner.
Clive Morgan and crew for losing Amok entirely.
I will now open the envelope to see who is the winner.
And the winner is?? David Hall in Flame Again.”
