Seasonal Bonus

In reply to GW7AAV:

(With advance apologies)

very suspiscious about any of the runny cheeses

Customer: Oh, I like it runny.

Wenslydale: Well,… It’s very runny, actually, sir.

Customer: No matter. Fetch hither the fromage de la Belle France! Mmmwah!

Wenslydale: I…think it’s a bit runnier than you’ll like it, sir.

Customer: I don’t care how runny it is. Hand it over with all speed.

Wenslydale: Oooooooooohhh…!

Customer: What now?

Wenslydale: The cat’s eaten it.

In reply to MM0FMF:

Andy, I have been resisting that since blue cheese was mentioned ;0)


#83

are there any Winter bonus points?? when is the start date?


#84

It is all clearly documented in ARMs, on the database and the website. Why don’t you just look it up?


#85

because I had the impression that December was a bonus month and I didn’t get any :S so though something is wrong


#86

Easy - just look it up - it is all fully documented.


#87

hehe true! I omitted the ‘*’ at the bottom! No bonus for my wimp activation!


#88

Well you will just have to find a 2 point summit as near you as you can get to, of which there are none in SE and then you will score bonus.


#89

hehe yeah Englands ‘summits’ are in most cases less prominent than the cow poo that sits on top of it! :slight_smile:
Ill do my best to drive to Brecon Beacon at some point with the new year.


#90

I regularly travel down the M4 to the Brecons. From 10 Jan - 7 Mar 16 I managed 58 points plus 36 winter bonus points equalling 94 points. Maybe see you down there is winter

I have to prepare some overnight BnB to make it possible.
its 3+ hours drive from London.

We have always thoroughly enjoyed our SOTA trips to the Brecon Beacons, whether staying in B&B, YHA or camping. Lovely part of the world. Many tales to read about on the GW/SW section of my SOTA page - on http://tomread.co.uk


#93

amazing blog!


#95

Rumour has it Tasos that G/WB-002 to G/WB-005 each reduce in height by a good 1 centimetre each year on account of all the winter bonus activations carried out on them.:wink:

Hmm, enjoy those Brecon Beacons summits. Might be tempted to air the alternative call down that way sometime this winter.

Gaulfest anyone?


#97

#98

Have a look for Corndon Hill GW/MW-013 2003 in my blog.


#99

“Monday 29th December was Gaulfest Day, conceived and arranged by Mark M0DEV and Dave M0DFA”

Saturday 23rd April 2006 - “The SP Fun Day turned out to be absolutely astonishing.”

Time we had another?


#100

…organise one and see if you get any takers.


#101

I thought someone would say that. You just couldn’t resist could you Richard? :smiley:

Any takers? I’ve got enough on my plate.
