Default [Dixonary] Round 2966 Results

Hi all

Votes are in and our winner is (I think) Efrem with 5 natural points. Efrem
tied with Dave and Tim, but Tim's points were unnatural and Dave is below
him in the rolling scores. I'm sure someone will let me know if I've got
this wrong. Also, I noted that Guerri cast a vote for #5 Pig-iron used as
ballast in ship's hold. But that def was actually #4, so I have assumed
that Guerri voted for 4 not 5. This gives a vote to Judy (instead of
Debbie). It makes no difference to the winner, but perhaps Guerri could
confirm which number she intended to vote for (and the points can be
adjusted if I've made the wrong assumption).
