Congrats to all the winners, HOF inductees and rookies! :smt023 :smt023 :smt023

Thank you very much to all who voted for me. I am very honoured. Great names there in the winner list!
I think there were even many more people who would have also have deserved an award, but I personally am especially pleased that Guillerme made in the Hall of Fame this year! Guillerme is a very fine guy and did a lot for Luxtopia!!!
