Arrow Introductions



On behalf of Sal, Will, Florin and myself, I'd like to welcome you all to the very 1st Segway Chat Awards, coming at you live from England, UK, on this wet and windy New Year's eve.

I'd like to say the streets outside are lined with Segway owners, eager to catch a glimpse of the winners, but the nearest Segway is about 60 miles away from here, unless you count Sparky, who is quietly charging downstairs!

So, without further ado, it is my pleasure to announce the winners, in no particular order...
