Michele Baldwin died on the 5th. So I think that means deadsox should have 4 more points. And then Gary Carter died yesterday.

Thanks 93.

If one of Spade's low hangers cops it in the next month he's got the magical 2012 points

Well... I noticed via Journalisted that one of my picks, Daily Telegraph hack Cassandra Jardine, has only written one article in nearly four months which, for a woman who used to write to or three pieces a week, is quite stunning. So I did some googling and found Saint Helena's Church parish newsletter was asking for prayers for her. So I might just sneak over the line there.

Reading the "requests for prayers" section of these newsletters is a whole new venue for deadpool research, imho.

Aye, but - so far - those prayers on behalf of the Reverend Ian Paisley seem to be working. So far, that is...

Wait, I just twigged that the death of Leonard Rosoman, RA, OBE, means that I have... 2034 points. I'd like to thank all of my fellow competitors, great sports the lot of you, I'd like to thank Rosoman, Strathie, James, Carter and that crazy cat Sanha for having the decency to buy the farm so early into this year, and hey.... next stop the DDP.

Aye, link below was the first hit I got that counts for points, so Spade is duly declared the winner and the closing time of 21 Feb is - indeed - impressive. PMs will flow between the Spadester and myself as a generous prize is agreed and forwarded to Spade Towers.

Reet gang, before the thread rightfully sinks without trace, a few questions that might lead to changes next year:

1 - (Because I'm all in favour of the "Dirty Dozen" concept of pile 'em high, off 'em quick dead pooling) If I opened things up next year to EITHER the DDP teams or a DDS (Deathrace Dirty Score) how many of you would be tempted to compile a team of twenty low-hangers for this competition?

2 - What else in the current rules is grating with anyone and might lead to higher levels of customer satisfaction for Deathrace 2013?

Let it be known that Spade, like DDT before him, has opted to receive his "prize" in the form of a donation to a charity fund-raising event. All now done and dusted. Spade may want to keep his personal life and friends confidential so I'll leave it to him to decide if he wants to post a link to the Just Giving page here. People say we're sick, but two charities have benefitted from Deathrace winners in the last twelve months!

The charity in question is the Depression Alliance, and its part of a sponsored rap battle taking place at Don't Flop's April 1st event. If any of you have any cash kicking about, do donate.

Much kudos to Maryport as well, we're helping the wider world here on the DL one corpse at a time.

Just warning yers...expect a new Deathrace thread to emerge in the next seven days. Pretty much the same rules and same deal as before. But- since it'll be a day or two before I put it up here - any strongly held opinions about Deathrace matters, ideas for changes etc, could usefully be posted in this thread. At which point - no bull - they'll be seriously considered before we open the doors to entrants. I'm particularly keen on ideas about how to enter low-hangers (in the Deathrace, not sexually!). I've offered the Deathrace Dirty Dozen option as an alternative to simply fielding the DDP teams in the hope that a really dirty bunch of low-hangers would clean up, but so far this attempt to reward initiative has come to nowt. Do I limit it to DDP teams, expand the alternative option, or do summat else?

Be seeing you!
