1. To "armchair adjudicate" correctly Whitwell Band's placing at any contest where they are competing. In twelve years I have never,ever got it right - although I have been off by just one on several occasions.
2. To attend the first fifty Butlins contests. I've been to all nine so far (up to 2012) - 41 to go !!
3. To get to the top of Paddy's Fantasy League just once. The best I've managed in the full five section format is First Section (December 2011).
4. To complete 25 Louise Smalley Walks. This annual challenge is a 40 mile fundraiser and I've done the last three (up to 2011), so just 22 to do!!
