Best Attendance - who is in the running

The snowfall today and recently will add to the fun tonight for sure.  But, will it impact the tight running for attendance?  I believe that as of last count, NoCar leads the pack with perfect attendance for 2016.  However, there is a tight pack of 3 or 4 in the running for 2nd place w/those who only have one absence this year.
You'll note my use of the word "absence", as opposed to attendance.  Myself being one of those in the running for second place may have have an asterisk (aka: half a star) on my record based on my attendance last weekend.  Rest assured, I was there, I rode my bike and I ate tacos.  I think that counts even tho XTerric and NewB say otherwise - they are so mean, so hard core.  No matter; when the final ballots are counted in Dec. I will have slipped down the list.  Bastards!

The real question is who will be in the 3 or 4 way running come later this month when NoCar has already announced his upcoming absence.
You know who it WON'T be.  Or should I ask the question who has perfect un-attendance this year. No Stars on Thars.

This does raise another question about the % of FT3'rs with good attendance vs. those with one wheel in the grave.  Not sure the exact percentage but I am sure that I'm riding tonight and keeping my attendance at only one absence *

One !
* suggest a ride wussed out a bit b/c his little legs were too tired

  1. An interesting point was made by Fro and Newb, who have been thinking hard about attendance accounting. According to them, the best way to record attendance is by making a declaration to ride on the blog. If your attendance is later challenged by the Taco Table, your affirmative declaration will be deleted. If this system is enacted, the best possible attendance so far this year is only two rides, owing to the blog blackout that occurred twice in January.

  3. I think the blog the makes it official. So if you want an extra FT3 prize, like custom sweet t shirts which are in the works, then first edition release is obtained with 5 documented rides (including blog post requirement). Super sweet, limited release second edition is obtained with 25 documented rides. Second edition is going to be a limited batch, so the race is on.

    1. I like these new rules. They put the flip phone and computer challenged riders at a strong disadvantage and it also puts more value on the blog.

    3. If Weather = bad then
      RC = No Show
      Else
      If Fun Factor = High then
      RC = Show
      Else
      RG = No show
      End If
      End If

    4. I like it. I'm going to have to resurrect my fun factor equation in print. I will get out there again soon, big project at work has been weighing in on calculation.
