A bit of foresight makes all the difference.

Hi RNG. Good to meet you.

If by any chance, you happen to be the Dallas area, please let me know, so we can get together and fly for a while, toss down a few beers, and talk kites and other great things.

Take care and have fun.

Thanks.

Stogiez

Pssst--yes--I know. What I don't know is my number.

Welcome Stogiez, your subscriber number is 982...

Good luck, the RNG is a cruel mistress. :)

But seriously, come on 0-0-0, it's gotta be my turn - right?!

It would appear even RNG's gender is random!!

So close now. Good luck to all :)

There is no 0-0-0, it's my imaginary hope.

Thanks for popping my bubble. :)

Now come one, that is a bit rich, asking the RNG to pick you just cuz you are a new member.

Good idea though, best of luck.

Just to ease my own ego. From What I gather RNG is a cruel mistress.

A CRUEL MISTRESS.

We read of kings and gods that kindly took

A pitcher fill'd with water from the brook ;

But I have daily tender'd without thanks

Rivers of tears that overflow their banks.

A slaughter'd bull will appease angry Jove,

A horse the Sun, a lamb the god of love,

But she disdains the spotless sacrifice

Of a pure heart, that at her altar lies.

Vesta is not displeased, if her chaste urn

Do with repaired fuel ever burn ;

But my saint frowns, though to her honour'd name

I consecrate a never-dying flame.

Th' Assyrian king did none i' th' furnace throw

But those that to his image did not bow ;

With bended knees I daily worship her,

Yet she consumes her own idolater.

Of such a goddess no times leave record,

That burnt the temple where she was adored.

OK, if the RNG chooses my number this time, I'm keeping it ! The Widow Maker is one of the best kites out there, and I will wear out the one I have sooner or later. I am actually thinking of trading my new Solus for a Widow Maker UL. That's how good the Widow Maker is, whoever wins this won't believe how nice it flies, even if dual line isn't your thing...

Full-tilt banter here!

Friend requests to mythical deities, the musings of Thomas Carew and other poetry, psychological warfare, etc....

Ahem, watch your tone there... No one does voodoo like I do.

Since I'll be traveling tomorrow....

HEY RNG

"Now go do,

That voodoo,

That you do,

So well!!"

There. I just worked in a Blazing Saddles reference. Winning is a sure thing for me now. There is no shame in the rest of you PM-ing John and bowing out of the drawing. Be a master of your own fate, don't let RNG do it for you ;)

The lucky winner...

249? No, they let their number lapse. :cat_shocked:

497? No, they let their number lapse. :cat_shifty:

21? No, they let their number lapse. :cat_sick:

314? Guess what... They let their number lapse. :cat_lol:

418? Yep, you're right - They let their number lapse too. :cat_shy:

830? Wow, another one could have won this widow but didn't! :ani_giveup:

Okay - got a good number that's still active, finally!!!!

Warm congratulations go out to #925, Fred and Donna Taylor! :cat_luv:

Sorry for the drag-out, but I thought you might want to see how many folks *could* have won, but lost out due to a lapsed subscription. ;)

Wow, the RNG got as close as #830, but couldn't make the leap to #833 (choke!)

Well, congratulations are in order to Fred & Donna (who did NOT let their subscription lapse). Fly it well and take lots of pictures!

Been out of the country flying on the beaches of Mexico for a week. Just got back and checked to see if you'd already shipped the Widow Maker to me. Almost had a heart attack with your list:

... 497? No, they let their number lapse. :cat_shifty:

Thought for sure it was my number!!!

Congrats to Fred and Donna ... hope you enjoy your kite.

Cheers,

Tom
