WIDPSC 2015 – Full Tab [RESULTS]


Some of the many vital and often underappreciated volunteers

We now have the top 50 overall rankings and top 20 for each category, released by WIDPSC 2015 online at their facebook page. These confirm that the Break-night/AIDPSC order were largely correct, though I had anticipated fewer tied rankings.
As always any errors are mine and you might want to check the original document to be 100% sure of results.

The Grand Finalists and results of the Grand Final can be found in the earlier results post. I have tried to highlight the Champion in faux gold and Grand Finalists in light red.
