Spot the Ball Winner

Maastricht Exhibition Competition Winner

It’s a couple of weeks on from the Maastricht exhibition, and after a great response to our ‘spot the cricket ball’ competition, we now have a winner. I have attached below the competition image and below that the original image showing you where the ball is. I can almost hear you gasp, ‘that was where I thought it was, did I win!?’

After receiving hundreds of entries from locations as varied as New Zealand, Uruguay, Chile, Israel and the USA, our eventual winner was from much closer to home in the Netherlands. Coincidentally this is the same country as the exhibition was taking place in, so unfortunately not many air miles for me on this occasion.

Arnold Pol from Arcus is the spot the ball winner. His guess was almost completely ‘spot on’, being less than 10 pixels away from the centre of the ball. Congratulations to him, and I hope he finds some use for his framed cricket bat. Maybe he could donate it to the Dutch international cricket side, it may bring them some luck and even some runs 🙂

I have contacted Arnold, and will be organising a visit to present him with the signed cricket bat in the coming weeks. A photo will follow in an upcoming blog post, and a short article will appear in the new edition of stainless steel world magazine.
