       BUT  {before Voting} a $10 (Minimum) Donation must be made to "Over the Pond" by that person.

Are the "resumes" collected in one place, or are they scattered all over hell and creation?

Kinda,
The pre-"resume" questionnaire posed to nominees by Andre is located here;

http://forum.cog-online.org/rallies-rides-and-events/otp-2019-nominee-announcement/

pretty much covers what was asked as a form of resume...

and further/more "embellished" "resume's" are scattered under peoples "vote for me xxx"

Yeah, some answered by populating the email, some by word doc, some by PDF. We need to get that squared away next go so we can present in a standard format. Lesson learned.  ;)

yer doing fine Mark, just blame it on Ted...  :))

Guy is an original traveler, and back then there was a "single" thread, dedicated to all pertinent facts, (and, it was done thru a completely different forum and communication "tree") so I can understand his asking...
You are now the Controlling "figurehead", and can structure as you see fit, streamlining multiple posts is just a formality, but I have faith during this indoctrination, a lot will come back, and in future, the "old" methods will prevail..

Thank you for taking on, and providing this effort.. many kudos man... :great: :great:

This is arguably the largest and most qualified field of candidates ever presented for OtP.  What ALL of them need now are VOTES and contributions so we (COG & GCE can make the trip a reality.

If you haven't voted yet. PLEASE do so!  If you haven't contributed yet, PLEASE so so!  Every dollar or Euro helps.

I think TED keeps forgetting it's KINDA about sending someone that has NEVER BEEN TO EUROPE, EVER...

TEDDDDDDDDDDDD......... :nananana: :truce: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Hey JIM...
I think as a pre-requisit, you need to collect/inspect all the passports from everyone..particularly TED's   ... >:D

and when Mine shows up (hopefully) here, I'll send it also...(at 63 I just realized what a pain you go thru, to get that Golden Pa$$port...)

Bless that scroll wheel on the ol' mouse  :)) We have over 90 votes so far  :great: keep them rolling in. It is what makes this program great. Donations are doing well but of course the more donations the more comfort the traveler can move with so keep those rolling in as well. 5 and 10 dollar donations add up quickly. I also have some interesting items coming up for auction that you all may be interested in so keep an eye out. This program is great, this club is great, the supporters are the best of the best.

Voting will be closing soon so if you've not voted for your favorite ... .  Submit your vote to OTP.USA@cox.net. Include your COG #.  If you're not a COG member, you'll need to make a donation to Over the Pond (PayPal address - OTP.USA@cox.net). See one of the earlier posts of this thread for details.

Over the Pond also needs your contributions. Every little bit helps assure the traveler (whomever it will be).

90 seriously? Not that I know how many there should be, but 90 just sounds terrible. Doesn't this forum have like, 1,000's of members? So are the nominees not begging enough or is this program losing steam?

Vote people, doesn't even matter who for just vote. However if you're undecided just put down CLIFF!  :)

We have over 90 votes so far  :great: keep them rolling in. 

90 seriously? Not that I know how many there should be, but 90 just sounds terrible. Doesn't this forum have like, 1,000's of members? So are the nominees not begging enough or is this program losing steam?

Vote people, doesn't even matter who for just vote. However if you're undecided just put down CLIFF!  :)

Dude...
look at the "Home" page,
scroll to the bottom where "users online" lives..

"highlight" and click "xxxx Guests, xx Uers"
then look at the users, and see how many are COG members....
and perspective changes rapidly  with reality..
do it frequently, and you will understand "waaaasssssuuuuuuppppp"

I'm actually overjoyed seeing the 90 votes cast so far, at the half way point... that seems pretty good to me.

the only time that "online" number goes up, is when I'm posting.... ;) :)) >:D >:D :nananana:

Vote for Me, MOB, to go OtP..... :rotflmao:
