Millionaires club - 2021-22 Season

Post by JonT »

A new topic in the forum to capture the achievements of those of us who row a million meters or more in a season.

Thanks to those Free Spirits who maintain this thread. =D> =D>

Thankee kindly Mr Jon. :D xxxx

If all my computer โ€˜ mishaps โ€˜ ( of which there are many ) were to collide somewhere out there in the internet ether, then scientists would be claiming that they had discovered a new black hole. Be very afraid. [-o< :lol: :wink:

About ten minutes ago, I discovered what can only be described as the body of a mummified frog, in the middle of one of our garden tables. ๐Ÿธ I can't blame this one on Sid Slither the grass snake. ๐Ÿ

Back later. :)

Poor old Mr Frog. :( I have no idea how his small, brown dessicated corpse ended up on the garden table.

He is now buried ( after a Humanist ceremony ) underneath the filbert tree which overlooks the pond and as my mumโ€™s earthly remains are already interred there, I know that he will be well looked after.

Our first two Metre Millionaires For The Season are:

On the 7th June, Dwayne Adams - 1,000, 000 x =D> ^O^ โค๏ธ

On the 10th June , Guy Blackburn - 1,000,000 x =D> ^O^ โค๏ธ

Congratulations to both of you: thatโ€™s what I call Fast and Fabulous. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช

Not that far behind, in positions 3,4, and 5, we have:

Claudius B @ 721,642 metres.
Carole Sergeant @ 713,000 metres.
Joe Smith @ 700076 metres.

Who will be the first to reach 1,000,000 metres?

Understandably, as I am a fully paid up member of the โ€˜ She Who Must Be Obeyed โ€˜ club, I know which one of these Free Spirits I will be putting my money on. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

I think it is important to mention Sharon Wilhelm Antisdel and Kevin Horne, who having beavered away behind the scenes, either on their BikeErgs, SkiErgs or both have also reached One Million Metres For The Season.

Sharon - 1,000,000 x =D> ^O^ โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’

Kevin - 1,000,000 x =D> ^O^ โค๏ธ

Great Going.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช

Kevin, is that you ... almost ... but not quite ... on the motorbike? :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Row safely. Row well. :)

Congratulations to Carole Sergeant on becoming only the third Free Spirit to reach a million meters for the season. Not only that, but she hit 1,000,000 exactly on the mark!

Youโ€™re certainly back with a bang, Jessica Red! =D> ^O^ =D>

Congratulations to Claudius B, who followed Carole's example and landed on exactly 1,000,000 meters for the season just one day after Carole. =D> ^O^ =D>
