The results have been posted on the Speypages forum, in the 'Claves and other gatherings' section.

I'm delighted to say that the the originators of all things spey were shown still to be the best practitioners . Sorry to say the Norwegians didn't fare so well.

Charlie, what a thing to suggest, Speycasting was invented 20 years ago on the Pacific Northwest, I thought everyone knew that.

Great to be here,and to meet the faces that have just been names up to now.
Juro, Sean, Dana, Kush and many more.

The compettition between Scott and Gordon was very intense but friendly and the CLA, previously known as the Musto, should be top class. I predict that 60yds will be medicore for these 2 as they were pushing 50yds with 15 ft rods wading to the waist.

Of course; silly me! Having made your pilgrimage, will you be showing off all manner of snaps, pokes and other fancy new casts when you return?
