Sharon Gaynor as Aedammair Drake the dragon saver, was runner up in the Scientist/Inventor category.

Yet another witty and inventive entry from Tony Somerville as Rev Rocket in his rocket cart which he actually turns into a cart and sits in at the pull of a handle. The audience loved him and he took the audience choice with ease.
