A MASSIVE thank you to everyone and their 'support crews' who made the journey to Palermo and took part to make it such an enjoyable One Challenge for 2011! Without you there is no One Challenge. Special thanks to Larsv, DanBachmann, and Ripon Ray who participated for the first time, and I hope you enjoyed enough to want to return in 2012 for the Copenhagen One Challenge.

Thank you to the One Challenge Committee for their help when I needed it and particularly to Andy Barton for his help and patience.

Lastly, but not leastly, a huge congratulations to the winners but particularly to Brian for his excellent winning entry.

I hope to see you all again in Copenhagen, and if you've liked what you've seen but didn't manage to make it to Palermo this year then you'll be most welcome in Copenhagen next year!

2011 One Challenge Organiser.

Brian, Jono and carsten! Three worthy winners. My congratulations to you all. Thank you for setting the bar so high, especially under the prevailing conditions. Just by participating, all the other shooters deserve recognition for surviving an evening of revelry and then facing the weather that evening to take pictures.

Again, thank you Pete and his support crew for a methodically organized event.
