On the ol' Interweb
Looks like Jim posted an update on a Flying Giants contest that ended May 31st so he'll probably announce this one on Monday as well.

It is for some contestants that know this would be really helpful to move forward in this hobby, like myself and I'm sure a lot of other people.

I decided that if I win, I am going to get $250 worth of Spektrum hats. I know someone with a tiny head gave them 1 star, but they would probably fit me OK. Just try and think of anything more glorious than a possible lifetime supply of black Spektrum hats. It might not be a true lifetime supply as I would be tempted to wear them all at once.

Can somebody let me in on what/who Mike is? Is this some kind of rcgroups joke I wasn't around for when it was created or something?

Indeed. When people are comfortable and doing fine they seem to lose sight or forget how it is to be not so comfortable. To be able to trade priorities so as to go without something to get a different thing is an effort and a compromise. When one is comfortable it's simply hey I'll run out and buy me one of those things. So yes $250 would be a score. For others, they would've spent it anyway. Comfortable people seem to lose that sense. Let alone not thinking that they might become not so comfortable some day.

Yeah thanks sparrow1. That is funny. One incomplete post for a post total of one. Active for just 2 1/2 months and not seen since. But spawning 400 odd pages of equally useless posts about nothing. But some guys are regular comedians. Funny stuff.
I see now why it was being referred to here in this thread.
And 11am ET and still no announcement. Jim T. Graham is Mike!

Be patient everybody, I'm sure that the winner will be announced in due time.

In the meanwhile, how about we all just kick back and enjoy life and let things happen as they may.
