Internet Steel Poll: -Last Chance, Please Volunteer If You Want It to Happen

Internet Steel Poll: -Last Chance, Please Volunteer If You Want It to Happen

Post by Mitc » Tue, 24 Nov 1998 04:00:00


I will make the adaptations to my tabulation program, collect, and
tabulate ballots if I can get volunteers to create a ballot.

   Each of the included coasters will need a line like the following:
Ghost Rider         Knott's Berry Farm   CA n n 0

   The volunteers will decide which coasters will be included and then
divide the coasters geograhically amongst themselves for typed entry.
There are well over 500 steel tracked roller coasters operating
worldwide.

   Only one person has graciously offered to type ballot entries.  I
would not ask one person to do it all (5 to 10 would be ideal), so more
volunteers are needed in order for this poll to take place.

Cheers,

Mitch Hawker

   That list, while quite extensive, was definitely not complete. I don't claim
to know every coaster in North America, but just in passing noticed some
missing. Firecracker (Zyklon?, Jolly Roger, MD), Python (Zyklon, Wildwood, NJ),
all the Morey's Piers steelies, and all the ocasters at BGW.

    I certainly can't expand any more on Duane's list, but if it is used, it
may want to be checked closely.
