I thank with all humility, but I was not the fastest, since several did not register for this little competition, I mention them interchangeably, Erik, Paul, Jason, and probably many others that I don't know of, and Matt which did 5:12.6 and which is participating. :wink: Well done Mat =D> =D> =D>

Quite pleased with 4th after a difficult month (or the 5th it should have been if Mat had updated his time).

I did find this good as additional incentive to get back on and try for an improvement, for both an overall points gain, and to try to catch Plummy on the adjusted time. So big thanks to Alan (the bird-man) for taking the time and effort to run this.
