    OK, I guess I'll start it now!! :D :D :D

    An UN-Official contest!!!!

    WHEN will the 1000th person join?????

    When Will that person make His or Her First Post??

    When will we get tired of usless polls??? ROFL

    Simple Rules...

    1. Post Here!!!!!

    2. Your Post MUST include:

    _____ A. The Gauge date you think the 1Kth person will join.

    _____ B. The Gauge date AND Time of that persons First Post!!!!

    Keep in mind that if this person joins close to 00:00
    GMT - The first post could happen the next calendar
    date.

    _____ C. Tie Breaker: The Scale or Gauge the person models in

    If all 3 items are not included in your post - it will not be a Valid entry.

    What do you win?????? Bragging rights!!!!!!

    Like all the other Polls we post - this is all for fun!!! If anything changes - I'm sure we will hear differently.. :) :)

    B - 12:07 GMT
    C - N Scale

    For what it's worth, during my 21 years in the navy, I had the worst luck in NATO when it came to forcasting anything, so, anyone thinking of guessing close to my prediction can judge themselves accordingly;).
    Cheers!

    He'll be an old cogger- when he drives- all you can see from behind is that floppy fishing cap and bony fingers gripping the steering wheel. You'd never know there was anyone in the car at all and that it is aimlessy driving around just to test your patience as you go to work while he's in search of a bagel shop.

    Lemme think about this! He could be a snippy, freckly face teener who has all the latest in DCC and wnats to techno-boff!

    Gee, I dunno- but I'm running with the narrow gauger who is convinced that we're all wrong and that if it isn't a point to point connecting with a dual gauge marble quarry hau8ling to a mainline subsidiary of a long forgotten seldom modeled some such...

    ...hehehe- okay- your guess is as good as mine.

    OK, here goes:

    Join date: April 22.
    First post: April 22, 12 noon
    N gauge

    Rational: There will be a slowdown in new members because there will be those that want to be #1000 and are willing to wait. Although there is a 40% chance that a new member won't ever post anything, #1000 will post immediately. Having waited that long they must be serious. ;) The new member will also be following the current ground swell trend to switch over to, or start anew in, N scale:D :D :D :D
