    I just noticed that the deadline time is posted as CST (Central Standard Time) rather than CDT (Central Daylight Time). Not sure if this is a mistake or not. If correct, it means if we sorta have an extra hour. 10 CST equals 11 CDT.

    6. Finished bike photos must be posted in the "Finished Bikes" thread by 10:00 p.m. CST on Sunday, August 3rd.

    Use your bonus hour wisely!:banana::p:banana:

    I calculate 12 hours 27 minutes left
    Midnight Eastern Daylight Time in the US.
    We just have to wait for the Ratty Disco Ball to fall at Jake's superhero dance club at the stroke of midnight.
    It's been one fun party again this year!

    My guess is that Steve probably meant it to be CDT, but typed it wrong. I can't remember from previous BO's.

    I knew I was a late night nut Dave, but what are you doing up at 1:30 in the morning?

    Luke.

    I'm up all night more often than I sleep.
    High pain levels often mean even with 7 day pain patches and sleeping tablets I go up to 50 hours before I get exhausted enough to crash for a while.
    It does mean I see what the us guys are up to as they post though.
    I have seen you posting in th wee hours as well, I assumed it was for similar reasons.
