For many years, Dr. Ben Jones ( aka "Badwater" Ben) and Denise Jones maintained the list of 146 mile finishers.
Thank you Ben & Denise for helping so many people without hesitation !
Wikipedia entry for the Badwater crossings at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badwater_Ultramarathon
Wiki explains the main types of crossings: solo with crew, solo self supported and Marshall Ulrich rules for Solo Self Contained
For the last 5 years i tried to make Badwater146 community driven. For the last 2-3 years i tried to get other people involved as Admins. The smarter ones told me they would rather not be involved. Some joined and did not participate. Too many people commenting and complaining from their computer but none willing to take ownership and to offer their free time and make this better.
If you (strongly) disagree or if you often disagree with what is going on re. Badwater146, please do become an Admin and help, or leave the Group. Makes no sense to be on this list if you do not believe in the rules/guidelines/purpose and you are not willing to help.
The Admins are offering their free time, so as a result it is not a perfect democracy here. Nobody has the time to create a perfect anything.
If you are an Admin, you must participate
approve and moderate message on the Badwater146@yahoogroups.com list
make sure that every person that announces their crossing has their info in the Master Spreadsheet
check and vet every person's "Athletic Record" well in advance of their crossing
Delete people's row in the Master Spreadsheet if you Deny their submission for Badwaer146
respond to surveys, vote, make your opinions public and clear
take responsibility for the buckles, patches, the Badwater146 name if we get sued again for copyright infringement.
If you want anonymity, at least 2-3 of the Admins need to know who you are
This is the only way to reach the Admins , since at least 4 do NOT have a Facebook account
