Thanks Rob!

New thread started, and a goal (number, or date, or something else), has been decided.

The rules:

The Last Person To Post Here Wins Thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread (use the red cross to notify them)
6. Go to 1.

Have fun and post while you can. RAC is falling like a stone (again).

Congrats Grumpy :-)

Gary, I think if our host can't announce the winner, the last person here declares victory before turning off the lights on their way out ..

Thanks Gary, and Susie.
Yeah, unless they change the requirements for posting here, it's likely that SusieQ is the last person able to post here.
In that case, I guess she will win the thread :-)

Let's see how this ends.

Hmm, should a move the goalpost, or not move the goalpost, that is the question.
It all depends upon how long my RAC will last...

Happy Thorsday.

And we have a winner.

My goal was the first post on, or closest to May 1st.
