No worries zip, three days yet for deadline and yours are in mail.

However any slackers not meeting deadline will be staked out naked on a mudflat at low tide that is known for a huge crab infestations of all varieties looking for easy pickings. Mike said he would make sure the one crab in his post would be available too.
