    Ok so an update on Tomorrow's race card.
    The two competitors are, Canada Post, who will be racing for the Ontario Bettas, and FedEx who'll be running for the Thailand imports. Both contestants are settled into their starting gates, Canada Post is starting from MISSISSAUGA Ontario, and FedEx is in ST CATHARINES, Ontario.

    Oh Wait What's this! FedEx bolted out the gate early! He's bound and determined to make that Noon Tomorrow deadline and is already over 5 hours into the cross canada trip! Will Canada Post be able to catch up?

    Stay tuned for more updates on this nerve wrenching competition!

    lol! Sounds like it will be a grueling competition, sounds like FedEx maaay just have the upper hand with that early start ;D

    You must be so excited to see your new babies in person :)

    Hello Red :;hi1

    I'll be looking forward to your updates!
  13. harpua2002Fishlore VIPMember

    It's so early, yet this made me LOL! Looks like FedEx has a commanding lead! ;D
  14. Red1313Fishlore VIPMember

    lol that's everyone :p I'm so excited for my new kids it was worse then christmas last night. Past Midnight and I was absolutely WIRED! Woke up before my alarm (5am) and made it back across town to sit in my old apartment and wait :p
    TigerFishy: WooHoo! someone else found the party :p

    Race Update:
    Canada Post is still sitting in MISSISSAUGA Ont. where it has been since 21:21 yesterday.
    The "apparent" lead showed by FedEx yesterday turned out to be a catch-up run instead, as it now too is sitting in MISSISSAUGA Ont. having arrived there are 1:21 am this morning.
    I suspect both competitors have some "leprochaun luck" up their sleeves since google maps has informed me that MISSISSAUGA Ont. is 2,212 km's away from me (as the crow flies) and driving time by car to get from there to here (without cutting through the US) is 1 day and 8 hours. Will they ride the rainbow or, more likely, sprout a pair of wings?
    Stay tuned for more thrilling updates :p

    The Race is still going...

    FedEx has made it to Sasktoon! At 7:29 am it reached the local depot! FedEx now needs to make it's way through handling, then all that's left is the home stretch run thought the streets of saskatoon!
    However Canada Post is still lagging behind in Missasagua... hopefully it's actually in transit because through FedEx's dust it's hard to tell if they're even left the gate yet!

  19. Red1313Fishlore VIPMember

    I suspect that FedEx is the one to bet on. Or else Canada Post just never updates their website. However I guess Canada Post is governement run and it's not even 9 am here yet :p

    Can't wait to meet your new babies too :p
  20. critter_fritter79Well Known MemberMember

    that is how the US postal service is sometimes too... I had a shipment come from the other side of the country and they never once updated the tracking info!! GRRRRR...Don;t they know we are very INPATIENTLY waiting for news of our new babies!!
