My first rowed meters were 2086 on Feb 9, it’s been a crazy 8 months, and inspired by https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-row ... -cudworth/ — I went for the marathon finish. It was also conveniently timed during our team challenge..

Well done on the jump up on the board Kevin (and remembering to stop for the gold star). I have a feeling Tako might have something to say about you bumping down a place ;-)

Well, I wasn’t aware that one gets bumped down by someone with same score. In the CTC the first to have that score is above, but maybe as it is a gold star?
Anyway no problem. This year has been my worst on the erg since I started in 2016, thanks to many reasons, so it is a natural result of that.
Counting on coming back stronger. Only 511k until my 15MM ;-)

You get bumped down by the newcomer to the million marker - same rules if you then move on to the next million and someone else is already there. It's an incentive for the person "bumped" to crack on and get the place back ;-)

Mr P, may I have a moment for the 10 million on the rower please.

I so wanted a gold star but my sieve like brain added an extra 0 on the still to go calculation - whoops.

Here is to many more since I never envisaged I would get to this many. :fssmile:

Gold for you as requested oh Lord of Greasby - solid numbers again this year so far sir. :-)

Just a regular black for you Lesley but a very nice jump of 8 places!! Addled brains come with the territory sometimes. I think some brain cells escape with the sweat dripping off one's brow on the metal mistress

Plummy and I are having a couple of issues with the Lifetime Millionaires list. Can someone other than Plummy or I please access the list from the FreeSpirits homepage and tell me if you can still view it? The link is under the Meterboard menu. If you are picking up the new version you should see a line at the bottom which says **This is the new version**. Could you also confirm that you were unable to edit it?

Plummy and I can't test this ourselves because we have direct access to the sheet and so won't know if the link is working for everyone or just for us as the owners of it.

Thanks.

Jon

Jon, row 88 contains the new message " *** This is the new version *** ". Note, there are 3 ***, not two. 8) I was unable to edit the table, so I am still in 16th place. :oops:

Plummy - I think we are back where we need to be, albeit without Jill's flamingos #-o :o

Much to Jill's likely annoyance, I recall taking the Flamingos off some time ago as editing Googledocs to shoe-horn them in was a bit of a PITA - so reverted to normal stars anyway.

David, I am not annoyed and apologise for having been the root cause of any discomfort to your gluteus maximus. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Have you never looked back to a silly event in your life, which now, you possibly regret doing? For me it's the Pink Star Hoist. :oops: #-o

Thank you for all the effort that you put into printing out Pink Flamingos. At the time, it was great fun. :) xxxx

Jon, the flamingo has not landed, as she is still circling above and I can only suggest that until the old bird touches down, you wear some suitable, waterproof headgear.xx :lol: :wink:

As for me, I am not far off 15,000,000 metres ... and counting.
