Earth Day 2020

Post by Tako »

Today 22.April 2020 is the 50-years anniversary of Earth Day!

Concept2 has therefore come up with yet another new challenge:

https://log.concept2.com/challenges/earth-day


So if you want another badge on the meter board (probably another Image) you better get erging for more than 22 minutes today ;-)

As soon as they fix the honour board, the badge will be added.

Details:


Earth Day Challenge
April 22
The circumference of the Earth at the Equator is 40,075 kilometers, or 40,075,000 meters. Can we all collectively log that many meters in one day? In honor of Earth Day 2020, we invite you to join us in seeing how many times we can make it around the earth on April 22. Anybody who rows, skis or rides for at least 22 minutes will appear on the honor board.

The Details
Row, ski or ride as many meters as possible on April 22, 2020.
This is an individual challenge. There is no signup. (You do not need to belong to a team to participate.)
Meters must be entered online.
Anybody who rows, skis or rides for at least 22 minutes will appear on the honor board.
BikeErg meters count in full for this challenge.

Lucky coincidence that I rowed a somewhat lackadaisical 30 minutes today after my resistance training. w00t!

Very good work Tako =D>
Doesn't seem to have synchronised for quite a few on the meterboard though?

I thought so to and checked whether I found them on the honour board by filtering Free Spirits and they do not show up there either. So they must have towed faster than 22minutes.

If you know someone on the honour board but not having the new globe on the Meterboard, please let me know.

Well, not sure why the script didn't pick up all, but after using the URL with the Free Spirits Affilation filtered it worked and 30 more received their well-deserved batch :fssmile:
Only explanation could be that due to the many pages of the unfiltered honour board the script struggled digesting it, but only a working theory.
The important thing is that it is fixed :D
