Re: Counting - discussion thread

From the main thread: Time to resurrect this thread after a three-month sabbatical. What better way to do that than looking at the Holt 2831 Single Toilet Roll Holder ? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I was waiting for 2831 hours to elapse from the time of the previous post. There were less than 17 hours to go! :(

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Southsea results have now been posted, so everything should be OK.

Also, I've noticed that my number of venues should be 44, as on http://www.parkrun.org.uk/results/mostevents/
