Allen Moore should be the second musher :)

Wow how did THAT happen?

I'd been wondering whether the Loon knew something the rest of us didn't. [g]

(I am pretty sure I'm not a robot, but have tried about half a dozen times to convince your system -- usually don't have trouble with these, but I find this one very difficult to make out -- finally refreshed until it gave me a clearer one, but still took multiple tries to get it one I could report so it would accept -- clarity problem always with the one with the partial darker background)

Oh sure, robots always "claim" that they aren't! ;-)

I've been copying the results for days - I can't believe I've had it wrong several times!

Thankful it was pointed out to me by Margiet!
