Let's move on, ok?
But there are now 4 cars for that lounge or is it too late?
I just feel sorry for the people that feel like they are missing out!

Re: Why is there no

BF, could you explain why you had to draw the line and why that line
is so set in stone

Sometimes rule observance causes more trouble than it resolves.

Would it not be a good public relations excercise to change the rule
this time?

I already did Gibbsy

Some polls have 8-10 cars and the winner would normally have a tougher competition than someone who won a lounge with a couple of cars participating.

Why 4? Figured, we'd be able to get at least 4 nominations for some of the less popular lounges, but it didn't happen for the 145/146 lounge. Frankly, I wanted to set the bar a bit higher but figured 4 should be doable.

Re: Why is there no

Marko Le Rosso was happy to have his in - but I don't think it was nominated
I could nominate it if it helped but I guess its too late now is it

As I said before I am not trying to create work for you or cause you grief (I manage that in other ways ) just feel sorry for the members who would like to be part of the AO community competition

Re: Why is there no

I feel sorry too.

Marko: can you provide me with a photo of your car? Happy to open a poll if we get yours in too, though won't be able to do so until tomorrow.

Re: Why is there no

Ta BF. I'm happy for my car to be included, to allow 3 other very deserving 145's take part, and them have a chance at winning. I think that was the point, the 3 other ones are very nice examples and would be a shame if no compo was to take place. I also think those owners would like the chance at having the kudos of being a lounge winner.
