Wow, this is really coming down to the wire.

 

Andy, you and I are fading like the Leafs in the third period.

 

Look out for Fay as the dark horse!

 

 

"If" Sanj the gentlemen is right and my horse crosses the finish line

first I would like to donate my potential first prize to Whisp because

I have a copy of GIC 87 on the way and the young lad deserves a

break. :wishluck:

 

 

Kharma baby and that just might give me the luck I so badly need to

pass these experts and stay ahead of Lizards2. :shy:

 

 

This contest has been awesome Andy and thank you again for doing this

for the lucky few that took advantage of playing this great game. (worship)

 

Good luck to all of you as we are winding down to Kharma time or I

should say crunch time.

Wow, this is really coming down to the wire.

 

Andy, you and I are fading like the Leafs in the third period.

 

Look out for Fay as the dark horse!

 

 

"If" Sanj the gentlemen is right and my horse crosses the finish line

first I would like to donate my potential first prize to Whisp because

I have a copy of GIC 87 on the way and the young lad deserves a

break. :wishluck:

 

 

Kharma baby and that just might give me the luck I so badly need to

pass these experts and stay ahead of Lizards2. :shy:

 

 

This contest has been awesome Andy and thank you again for doing this

for the lucky few that took advantage of playing this great game. (worship)

 

Good luck to all of you as we are winding down to Kharma time or I

should say crunch time.

 

wow

 

That is very kind of you and you don't have too. You guys worked hard on this competition.

 

:)

 

I just goofed off in the background and war books are really your guys niche.

Whisp, :hi:

 

Seeing the final prices of this past Sunday I don't think I made

any ground on Sanj or Andy and I'm sure Mike also past me. :cry:

 

Lots of members have done many very kind things for me since the day

I joined and I would like to pass some of that kindness around. If I win any

book by some miracle I would like Andy to send them your way. (thumbs u

 

 

This contest was a lot of fun and I would never call it hard work. :)

As a side note, this contest has been very fun for me. It's actually been quite helpful as it was not an easy decision to sell my collection. Watching the books sell has given me mixed reactions, obviously depending on whether they sold for decent money, or not. Playing this little "game" has kept me busy. I get to keep track of the sales, see the highs and the lows, and get a better understanding of today's market. The fun part is seeing the winners from week to week. It was also good to see that all of the "regular" players won at least one t-shirt each. That was what I was really hoping for, and I'm happy it turned out that way.

 

We are playing for a top-3 placement as well, myself not included, although I'm right there keeping the pressure on first place. Well, not this week, but I'm hanging in there. Anyway, there are some prize packs that I'll put together for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I'm sure you three will be happy. (thumbs u

 

Thanks again, gang, for keeping me entertained, it's been a good time. (worship)
