Let me tell you this. I had no idea that we'd get this many participants this fast. We have a lot of new guys posting here along with some veterans. Our last PITH had 122 participants and I know we can beat that.
LanceD, I would love to participate BUT with one MAJOR problem. My hand is still in a mjor cast, so whoever I was paired with would have to be patient with me in case I was unable to get the pen finished in time, or it was not up to my usual bad standards!
Bruce, I agree with your sentiments. That is why I posted ahead of time that I would like to do this, but there may be a slight delay on finishing/sending the pen due to my surgery. If the receiver has no problems, then I don't mind doing this. BUT, in order to keep any problems from developing, I think it would probably be best for me to withdraw my name this time, and I will catch the next pen swap instead. I do not want any IAP members to feel slighted, and I am still not turning yet, and it will be 5-6 weks more before the cast is off.
Hi Rob, after knowing about your unfortunate situation, I don't think anyone here would feel slighted if they have to wait a couple of extra weeks for their pen. We still have two weeks of people joining before the deadline and a full four weeks to get your pen done. We'd definately don't want you to drop out of this and we all know that you'll get it done when the hand heals completely.
