We had apologies from Day as he was taken ill, he was dissapointed about not being able to take part. We had some new wikitree members for whom it was a learning curve but they got stuck in.

The star of the weekend was Lesley she really was amazing, everyone was. So many profiles are looking better.

The Kiwi's won they outstripped all the other teams.

A pleasure working with you guys, see you for the Clean A Thon in the Spring Check out the round up page https://www.wikitree.com/blog/scan-a-thon-wrap-up-a-fun-weekend-of-scanning-and-uploading/ we made the top five Teams in 2 catagories and Lesley made the Top 10 individual lists
