Many thanks to Martin for this magnificent report.

the 2019 Trophy

PSTOIC annual dinner – 19th January 2019

Thanks go to Olivier, Rex and Alan for a great job organising this year’s event (17 people!). Another change of plan was needed for this year, the Wildwood restaurant in Gloucester Road had closed, but as luck would have it, Sticky FINGERS in High Street Kensington was back. Rex and Alan suggested meeting beforehand at The Britannia. Jez brought a selection of his 3D printed cube puzzles to keep us busy. Olivier turned up with a surprise bonus guest – Yazan. By special request, Doug brought back his amazing clockwork bird box.

This year’s theme was bring something Foreign. Items included:

Thanks go to Andy for making the wire medal (full write-up), and to Rex for making the runners up 3D printed PSTOIC bodge owls.

This year’s judges were Yazan, Steve and Richard. After a long discussion (and possible disqualifications), Yazan announced the following:

  • 1st place
    Martin’s water chestnuts from Cambodia
  • Runner’s up
    Rob’s Killepitsch Kräuterlikör from Germany
    Jez’s Maltese Falcon 3D print

Apologies for absence:

  • Carl Fairhurst – I’m not going to be able to make it Saturday. I got tripped up by the dog last week and managed to fall, breaking my ribs. I was hoping I’d be okay to travel, but I’m still not able to move around very well and having to take lots of painkillers.

Next year’s theme….

Bring something blue
