Mike Martin announces another doorprize winner; Jim McDavid's back is to the camera and Keith Holman's daughters are passing out the prizes.

An old-fashioned melodrama is performed. Clockwise from kneeling (don't ask) is Kevin Schindler, Tom King, Mike O'Roarke, Richard Finlayson and Tony Dixon (back to camera); behind Finlayson is Reg Stocking.
