We’ve not had a competition on the forums for a long while and just passing 29,000 posts today on the forum sparked a thought…I wonder when we will hit 30,000 posts???
So that is the competition.

• State when you think the forum will hit 30,000 posts
• Please state it as in date and time e.g. 26 November 2009 at 11.42 p.m. GMT
• All times GMT
• Whoever guesses closest is the winner
• One guess per member
• Nice prize to be confirmed
• Closing point for entries is when we hit 29,500 posts

I believe this was post number 30,000.
http://www.ifsqn.com...showtopic=13514

30 September 2009, Yesterday, 11:49 PM

By my reckoning that means Poppysnoss is the winner with her guess of 5th October - at 06:43am GMT, which is 4 days, 6 hours and 54 minutes away.

A_andhika was close with a guess of 25th September 2009, 16:30 GMT, which is 5 days, 7 hours and 19 minutes away.

If anyone wants to argue correct me please do.

I’m going to send you a couple of books Poppysnoss, so can you PM me with your postal address.

The Leader's Digest: Timeless Principles for Team and Organization Success
http://www.clemmer.net/books/tld.shtml

Growing the Distance: Timeless Principles for Personal, Career, and Family Success
http://www.clemmer.net/books/gtd.shtml

Maybe you could post a picture or little review of the books when you get them. :smile;

Thanks to everyone for taking part.

Regards,
Simon
