With only just over a week to go I note none of you guys has asked for an extension?  :o

Are you feeling ill or are just so far ahead of your build programmes that you're all wholly confident of finishing by next Friday?

There is absolutely no way I'll be done next Friday  :banghead:  There's only about a 50% chance I'll be done if there's a two week extension.

So, about that two week extension...

OK, the mods will moderate and hand down our judgement in due time.

The mods have met in plenary session (which is pretty good considering we're 12000 miles apart!  :o) and have decided, much against our better judgement, that there will be a 2 week extension.

Thus the GB will end at midnight, local time wherever you are, on Friday June 14th.

In case that's confusing it means you can carry on building until 2359 hrs on the 14th, but have to stop within the next 60 seconds.

Yep.  Flying Dinghy will be done in time.  Not sure about the 'dyne.  Paint is still causing issues.

Just over 24 hrs to go for those on the UK, less than that for those east of us, and more for those to the west obviously.

Less than 5.5 hrs to go for GMT time zone builders. You guys in Oz are already past the time limit I'm afraid.

Aw, geee and I was just going to start my entry, Kit.  Any chance of an extension?   :banghead:
