I think we should make it whatever the marathon project is for the Pentathlon. That way anyone who wants to just "set it and leave it" for the whole event will be counted for our team race as well as the marathon, and those who want to participate in the shorter sprint and javelin throw events can do those instead since they take a lot more planning and management.

Thanks Stefan and Fardringle for the stats and for organizing Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch! Mark pulled off the 3.14157... Pie....times x to the x win ;), but just barely.

It was fun to track something this past week and to fire up some older equipment to see what still is working. I was also able to escort an arachnid to a new outside home also, after a few unpleasantries were exchanged.

Now to replace an old laptop fan and donate / recycle an S4.

All of the above 3.14157 pie talk was editing after only after vino. I did not catch the moving of the goal posts until after the vino started. Butt! I did before it was pointed (butted?) Out to me? ;)

So should we just start our first week of the month challenge when they announce the marathon project for the pent? Sounds good to me.

If you look close at Stephan's last stats post, you'll notice that he mentioned "somebody's elbows must have grazed the goalposts". Then take a really close look at the stats chart that he posted and you'll see that it was Stephan who moved the posts. ;)

I thought it was rather clever and amusing the way he hinted at what he did without totally giving it away!

I second that, good and pragmatic idea.
