December Contest

Coming down to the wire.  Any stories yet to be posted?  Just one could change the outcome.

Got to ask though, how the heck did Groovy Mike end up losing 10,000 points?  We'd have a different leader if he'd had those points bacck.

Not Sure

I'm not sure how Mike lost his. I got most of my deductions by going over the limit without realizing it.

First I submitted too many stories, then just today I started too many new topics - just got carried away telling jokes. lol

It's coming down to the wire, for sure. My wife will be glad when it's over. Yes

How's that new rifle working for you, CVC - get a chance to shoot it yet?

I too submitted more stories and tips than earned points, so I initially got points for them then had them backed out because I had maxed out teh points for stories and tips.  i also made the mistake of starting more than 5 posts in a 24 hour period several times.  My mind just counted a new day as a new posting period, but posts on say 9 AM are still within 24 hours of say 2 PM the prior afternoon, so there were several 200 point deductions there.  Then when I realized that I should haev waited to post the new threads, I deleted them intending to post them later.  That resulted in ANOTHER 200 points being deleted.  The moderators have been great trying to help me sort out my multiple mistakes as I learned the rules and the syetm.  I very much appreciate all their help and the advice that you all have given me - as well as the opportunity to compete to start with! Thanks BGH and Vanguard!

Nope - I'm pretty much done.  The last couple of days i've done everything I could to catch Jim, but he is the lead dog in this race.  I couldn't catch him unless he broke both hands and I did nothing else but chase points until midnight.  So first place is his Yes

But some of you guys are really close changing positions and moving up to better prizes.  I can't say thank you enough to BGH and Vanguard for the opportunity to compete. :=D>  :=D> 

The best part is that everything we have all posted will be here in the future as a legacy for new members including new hunters to learn from.  This site rocks!Thumbs up

I'll tell you what, a couple of off days sure can make a difference. I was in 1st place when we left for our Christmas vacation on the 19th. Four days with no points....lol. I came home in 3rd place. That's OK as it was a very enjoyable time with the kids and grandkids in the cabin Yes
