THE CATWALK OPEN DECKS DJ COMPETITION was by all accounts a runaway success. Eighty bedroom 015 competed in eight heats with ten hopefuls making it through to the final, held at Wilkie House on Thu 22 Jul. Although the overall talent was im ressive, there could onl be one winner, so congratulations to Sacha Ro otti (pictured). A specia mention

to the judges of the final who blatantly disregarded the

ease pace
