    I believe it should read 'A tie-breaker for stove of the year 2020' above? I know, I have only just joined, but will probably be thrown out just as fast because of my pedantry! [-X

    Yes of course, but one of them is more worthy.

    In the machinists union there was a term "Qualified". There was no use of the term "More Qualified". You either were or you were not.

    Really hard to choose. But, I did.

    Hearty congratulations @Staffan Rönn . The Optimus Travelling 1S is a very worthy winner of the Stove of the Year 2020.
    I'd pretty much resigned myself to being runner-up to this very fine stove.
    Best wishes
    Rob.

    Wow! Holy paraffin smoke... This was really a surprise, the competition as equally worthy of the win as my stove. On behalf of my Traveling 1S, thank you so much to all who voted. In this case it's probably all in the exquisite feet. And really @Robert Radcliffe - your stove is at least as beautiful as mine, thanks for being such a nice contestant!

    @Staffan Rönn I'm not feeling too sorry for myself I won SOM three times and I'm runner up in SOY for 2020.
    Just realised it was your Optimus that beat my Coleman/Jolp by just one vote in July so that's worth a resubmission at some point.
    Well done again.
    Rob.

    I should say a huge thank you to those who took time to vote for either stove. 25 votes for the Campingo is a big deal.
