Hi All, In regards to the latest posting on this subject, which I raised in the 
first instance, I would like to comment.1/ No one ever suggested taking the fun 
out of the Twitchathon.2/ I don't know where the proof is that the Twitch, 
specifically in its present form is the reason for raising funds. I would think 
its the persuasiveness and tenacity of the person raising the funds that is the 
main reason for raising funds. We never see the full list of teams and how much 
they raise so we don't know whether its the main race teams or the other teams 
that raise the funds.I also believe that ALL teams not just the ones who raised 
the most funds, and the amount they raised should be more publicised. They get 
little recognition currently and should receive all the accolades regardless of 
the amount raised by them.
  I still maintain it is not a level playing field for those living west of the 
dividing range unless one is prepared to travel huge km, this does prevent some 
teams entering the main race knowing they have little chance of winning which = 
loss of fund raising opportunities.
Buying carbon credits is another cost on the top of the expense of competing 
and is a bit of a cop out in my opinion.
