As in the past I will accept, via email, predictions for the finish of all eight players. The prizes will come from our larder and art collection.
If no one can predict the correct finish I may award the prizes if someone is quite close. I am the final judge and will be fair as we do have a lot of stuff in our larder this year as it remains a bountiful harvest in 2002.
The contest ends when the first ball is hit September 4.
