    Default Pointless Prizes 2016

    Just getting this thread up and running.

    I also want to announce a solution to this issue:

    Pink and green are fun though!

    I volunteer!
    I have ordered a big supply of NEON GREEN ankle bands like this:

    When they come in I will make them available for $3 each; 2 for $5. You can put them on your ankles or just wrap one around one of your tubes. I think the green is unusual enough to make it easy to spot each other.

    Great idea. More practical than the forum tag that ended up permanently clipped to my commuter rig, leaving me unmarked on the other bikes. And visible from multiple angles.

    Would you please make sure Eric Williams' weighs at least 10 pounds, unless he's on my team?

    There is a brand of Israeli chocolate called "Elite". I could get some at the Fairfax Shoppers. I am sure someone can think of a suitable thing for which it could be the prize.

    I'll definitely be in for two.

    I'm in for a couple of ankle bands. And I will happily sponsor a Pointless Prize again this year. Maybe 2. Specifics to be determined at a later time, as usual.

    I will be doing a Pointless Prize.

    It will be coffee related.

    I doubt anyone's surprised.

    International shipping, or will they be available at the first happy hour?
