I had finished at 8 am EST otherwise at 12:57 GMT time. Unbelievable so we are a five hours difference. WOW William we were so close to each other in scanning. I didn't think I was able to get back on the internet. Thanks to everyone who had participated and especially to William and Liz our awesome Captain and Co Captain.

It ended about half an hour ago - I uploaded my last pic at 0759 :D

Then my computer crashed when I tried to join the last Hangout, so I think I only made 4 of the Hangouts.

Hope the time online/uploading was fun for everyone. And hope to see y'all back in a few months for the Clean-a-Thon!!

Go Team Virginia - Well Done!!

Is it over yet Liz? I finally got back on Monday morning at 3am EST, I woke up then from sleeping all day when I wrote that I wasn't able to because of our weather and my internet satellite not letting me work.

Congratulations everyone for being in this wonderful scan a ton for 2019. It was a hardship for me but I finally got back on.

Just wanted to say WOW! Y'all are wonderful. I apologize for being mostly MIA during this thon. But Oh My! Our Team has been fantastic! I'm always happy when every team member contributes at least one thing during a thon & y'all have done that!! (I think this is the first Thon Team Virginia that has!) We're in 18th place (where we've been most of the Thon), with 220 contributions (as of a minute ago).

Great job everyone, especially our top 5 contributors:

  1. Andrea Pack with 69
  2. William K. Foster with 62
  3. Nancy A. Thomas with 31
  4. Mel Lambert with 26
  5. Gregory S. Morris with 18

Woo-hoo! And Thank You all!
