    Default Poll for end date of 2020 Freezing Saddles

    I'm pretty certain I know how this will come out, but for official purposes, and so we can publicize it properly on the registration, when shall Freezing Saddles end?

    (Background on why this question is here at all may be found here)

    When you say midnight on the 18th, you do mean one second after 11:59:59 pm on the 17th, right?

    No. Less ambiguous would be 11:59:59 on Wednesday, March 18.

    And #3 is 11:59:59.9 on Thursday, March 19.

    Make sure you list the time zone, too, for those of us abroad, e.g. 11:59:59.9 EST is 8:59:59.9 PST for me in Seattle.

    Freezing Saddles is a DC-based game. Those of you who choose to play from afar can figure it out for yourselves. No special accommodations just because you abandoned us.

    For a warmer climate. Or for some (BOB JAMES!) for a much much colder one.
