For his prognosticative powers, Iain receives a fabulous prize package valued at $550, donated by the good folks at R.G. Hardie & Co. of Glasgow:  

Congratulations to Iain Currie, and thanks to R.G. Hardie & Co. for once again making this contest so popular, and of course to our thousands of readers for their support!
