Many thanks once again to everyone for the kind comments, they are greatly appreciated.
Its not been quite a week since my nomination, but I felt it best to get this award back to being one given on a weekend alongside the others. There were a number of people I had in mind for this award, but one member stands out. He was the first person to regularly post on one of my AAR's, which proved a tremendous boost to myself, and I have seen him give the same encouragement to a number of new writers on this great forum. His replies are always filled with excellent wit, and I hugely enjoy reading them. My choice is thus blsteen.
Congratulations my amigo!
