List has been updated. I’ve come to the conclusion that if someone in the states wins it I’ll probably just buy a new one on amazon prime and pay Big Smile It’ll cost about the same as shipping it over the pond and that way you get a light and for the same cost I keep a light Shocked

Hint taken Wink

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Sorry. Still got a week to go. I’ll double check the names on the day.
I didnt say but also I’m not giving this light to someone who joined after Jan 1st 2017. That only discounts one person, sorry.

Okay, I’ve finalised the list.

I’ve randomised the list. There are 27 names in the list. The first person to reply to this post with a number 1-27 will decide the winner.

Nice review.

Lol, with chronic health issues I could write an epic sob story, but I would like to think I am not really the sob story type. Instead I’ll try and sob about having an impacted wisdom tooth cut out under local anesthetic that took over an hour and at one point the dentist said I should have had a general, then a suture tore out during healing and today I am heading back for the fourth time in a fortnight to make sure it is still going ok. Oh and for the sob story part Silly I haven’t been able to eat real food for two weeks (except for 2 days just before the sutures tore) and have barely lost any weight Sick

That’s really painful, I had one of those surgeries a while ago but it still left me with a painful memory, and the uncontrollably running saliva made me feel sub human.
Feel better soon

Congrats Firelight2! Smile

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

Thanks foton. I was lucky and only had numb lips for a few hours, although the dentist thought it would last a number of weeks due to how deep and twisted the roots were. Now 4 weeks later the only painful part is how much it cost.

So I was really cheeky and asked Thorfire if they had any discount codes so I could send the winner a new light from amazon USA and they said they’d sort it for me.
Thankyou Thorfire!

Mr Lucky Winner, your light is winging its way to you as I type!

I now need to decide what to do with mine. I do like it but I’m going to have to check friends/family to see if anyone wants to get hooked on this expensive hobby
