DescriptionThe contest started with a sign in sheet. Write down your name, start-time, end-time, elapsed time and sheets used. Results are tabulated at the end of the week.
BasicsRecord time in and out. At the end of the week we tally longest and shortest single visit, least paper used, longest and shortest total time, number of visits and anything else that seem interesting.
Why is this Fun?It started out as a joke about who had to spend time in the cold latrine and perhaps a reference to Jeff Rand and his "mealy".
Variations:Eventually this evolved into a computerized system with an electronic dispenser to tally paper used. It was probably a bridge too far.
Equipment List:Just a notepad and pencil (please!)
