    I'd guess it would have it's own registration fee, support, shirt, bib, medal, etc.?

     

    maybe, this was the part I was specifically asking for (expectations regarding support... which in my mind, there ain't none), perhaps, perhaps, dunno, etc.

     

    And what was said about the park being closed.

     

      Every male Monkey winner has been.

       There has been another male Monkey winner?

       

      Oh, yea, that's right. Ben didn't run the first two years so Jeff and Chuck alternated first place.

      How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

       

      Just a girl who runs.

        This Ben character sounds like quite the prima donna...

         

        How else am I gonna be able to get you a new number? I told Trent you wanted 4. Heh...Farve-ray isn't using it anymore.

          Yeah, I'll never get up that early.  It was a SWAG, for sure. 

          Tick tock

            You guys are dumb asses... he can't make dark monkey a for real option. The park closes at like 10pm or something.

            I believe in the Lord of the Trenternets.  Whether it is worth his time and effort to use his time is the question, but certainly not the extent of his power.

              I think you leave 100 spots for new blood

               

              Streakers - Having Run all previous races - In (15)

              Top 5 Men and Top 5 women From previous race - In (10)

               

              At some point you may let Streakers - 1 year in when the number gets low enough

               

              Leaving 75 spots for lottery based 1 entry for each year - Do this a few weeks early - Random number generator off the list - It is not hard - I could help with this.

               

              If you do not get in by lottery you can try and enter at large

               

              I would give a few spots at RD choice to competetive runners or other people you find interesting - Like the Unibomber Obama or Slick Willie or Kegger George Bush. 

               

              I would also consider a big fat-ass Monkey in the spring so those who are left out and still want to be punished have their wishes granted.

                I like all of DBs ideas except for the spring Monkey. There is only one Monkey.

                How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

                  An issue with doing the lottery outside the registration software is then getting the winners (or, in the case of Monkey, losers) an ability to register formally while excluding the others.  AS we have proven, passwords can be shared.

                    could you make 10 individual passwords?

                     

                    Or maybe have it to where the registration will only accept certain names or something?

                    A Dance with Monkeys

                      I would need to make 100 passwords, and the system requires huge setup for each password.  No go.

                        How about NO online registration?

                          Actually a snail mail only registration could be rad. Having said that, if I ever don't get into Monkey I WILL come to your house and eat you.

                            If it will be a real lottery, it needs to have a lotto ball machine.  Each ball has a name on it.  (more balls for more people, perhaps, depending on the way Dr T wants to play).

                             

                            Pop goes the weasel

                              Mail-in does not work.  Unless it is attached to a lottery.

                               

                              For example, 100 spots are available.

                               

                              Aug 1 - post form on website

                              Aug 2 - remove form website

                              Aug 3 - 78 forms arrive, mostly from nearby

                              Aug 4 - 124 forms arrive, from all over

                              Aug 5 - 653 forms arrive, from all over

                              Aug 6 - 42 forms arrive, mostly from far away

                              Aug 10 - 4 forms arrive from parts around the world?

                               

                              So.  Where do I draw the line?  And this would bias towards relatively local runners with closer mail boxes.
