There was a last minute surge in entries for the January round of the competition, with 10 entries in total.  Unfortunately, voting was a little lower than usual. However, this left a lot of points up for grabs enabling entrants to leapfrog up the league table. Val Bolam, Geoff Hawkins and Paul Needham are joined by Martin Wood and Roger Turner vying for position at the top of the leaderboard.
