Bonkers Idea

Post by hopeful traveller » 28 May 2014, 23:48

What with it being the 10th anniversary and all, and with me looking increasingly likely I can come, I've come up with the following bonkers idea.

A prize, in my view, should be awarded to the person who runs the furthest in terms of on-foot runs, according to Google Maps.

Either that or a karaoke contest with the proviso that only songs from the Eurovision Song Contest may be sung. :-P
1 FNC Completion (PB: 17:18:18 with G Bryant, A Chilcraft, I MacNaughton)
4 Zone Ones (PB: 03:00:35 with G Bryant)
15 R15s (PB: 01:55:48 with T Cooling and R Jackson)
11 All Lines (PB: 00:44:03)
Winner of the 2014 Formula 1 Side Competition

It had merit until you mentioned Eurovision.

If the second suggestion were adopted, I, seriously, would not want to come to the pub afterwards.

Those who have met me at an R15 know how bad I am at darts. I am worse at karaoke. Let's not go there!

Possibly. Of course, the BOZO would have to give it a nod, surely!
