I need to find an Isaia suit to go with my new pin.

The whole point of the pin is that you can put it on any suit and everyone thinks its Isaia. Where is everyone????

The winner with a total of 24 points is Capnwes (PM sent). Please post a new list or PM me if you are not able to.

 

2 suggestions to increase people participate might be to include AAAC thrift thread and also see if we can get this on the main page of SF (Spoo you got any pull on the latter?)

I think we will get more players when the vacation season ends. That, and some other family and professional obligations, is what has sidelined me. But I'm all for inviting the AAAC crowd. Or doing whatever else folks suggest. All I'm saying is it may happen organically anyway.
post #370 of 903

Thank you Brianpore, that was immensely fun. I made a few mistakes on what I needed to find but I wouldn't have beaten the cap or MrDV anyways.

Eagerly awaiting the next one. Bring it on Cap.rimshot.gif

Congrats, Cap.

Lets consider before posting a new list to get some hype. Shall we get a show of hands to see who is in?
post #375 of 903

I'm definitely in again.
