Congratulations everyone!

Since the only person I know in the list is Fernando, I can only comment about him. His tenure as LAmb (to avoid confusion with "LA", Linear Actuator, and not to be confused with "lamb" :D) last year was simply flawless, and I can find no way in which his work could be improved.
In fact, not everybody would be able to be at the same time Treasurer at PLUG, LEGO Ambassador and Webmaster of TecnhicBRICKs, all while doing such a great job at all of them. And let's not forget the non-LEGO job and the family!

So, I wish all the best for all the nominees from every country and every LUG, and hope that they help strengthen the bond between company and fans, which can only mean good things for both parts.

Thanks Cagri!
And also congratulations of your and TurkLUG first nomination.

Tried to send you a mail yesterday with the gretings, but found that your e-mail in my gmail cache is not valid anymore.

Thanks to you also, Alexandre! :)

Thank you for the nice thoughts Fernando, you're very kind. I shut down my web site recently. It had LEGO in the domain name and I didn't want to get into trouble with TLG, fairplay etc.. So my email account doesn't work any more. You may find my new contact information here:

Congratulation to all! At least, PLUG and all Technic fans around the world will have a great support provided by Fernando, as always! ;)
