Well done Tako! I know you've had a tough season so it must be a relief to get another landmark tucked away. I've updated the chart (although moving you to just above Jill upset all her Flamingos and they flapped away all over the place - so I had to round them all up again :lol: )

Thank you Dave!
Not sure whether I wrote it earlier, but I believe it would be more fair to do it like in the CTC, that if people have the same score, the one who came first is tops, but of course the competitive part in me loves to get as high as possible

Sorry Jill, I hope the birds recovered well from seeing the Flying Dutchman popping up in front of them.

Back from my travels so gold star belatedly applied - well done sir.

I've picked up a head cold and a pulled muscle in my back (maybe after 5 hours driving then picking up heavy cases from the car) so any thoughts about putting in a end of season big stint have evaporated for now.

I hear what you are saying about the long time between millions - but you got there and so well done for that. =D> =D>

Gold star awarded, shame it didn't move you up a place or three though. That said I might be removing some non-active names soon so you may shuffle up a couple of places that way.

Hi Plummy, today’s 50k took me to just over 20MM, so please can I have another star 28 months in coming, hopefully the next will be a bit quicker (we’ll slower, but in less time!

Many thanks

Louise, you are seeing the benefit of when I was training at least 5 times a week and regularly over 80k per week, now the millions have been hard won! Well done on your 3MM =D>

50k - nice work Iain =D> . I bet that brought back some memories. Any mummification of the hands going on this time?

Star awarded - onwards to the next 20 million :lol: :lol:

Many thanks Plummy, it actually felt harder than the 24hr tandem and 111k (although no stomach issues or having to row on in the midst of a sea of lasagne eating!), although it may just be that I have blocked out the worst bits. Mummified my hands as usual, but with less success as out of blister tape so had to use strapping tape, the handle of my erg is now coated with glue! Well, on the plus side is I probably won't be able to handle down now! At that rate I will hit next 20Mm around my 100th birthday! I think your lead over me is secure!

Finally squozed out another million and of course landed on it exactly (got to keep the standards up ;-) ). I might make 50 million by the time I'm 67 at my current rate - just in time for retiring

Gold star awarded Allen. Congrats on the 10 million landmark - that's a biggie.

Maybe worth celebrating with a T-shirt from C2?
