Bollar hits #2 Exec Plat spot

Bollar is my new All American Hero. He's in London and accomplished my rescue mission. So Bollar in less than 24 hours you went from number ten to number five to number two. However, number one is reserved for a very special someone. I'm sure you understand.

Seriously guys, my twenty-four year old son was more or less stranded in the UK for four days..when I put the call out on the site for anyone in or near LGW Bollar emailed me and then we talked on the phone. He landed in Gatwick, found Mike and mom feels better.

So if we ever have a FT All American Hero, Bollar gets my nomination.

Thanks Rick.

I think it's wonderful that, after all the help you gave us, one of us could return the favor!! Cooperation, that's what it's all about.

I declare that any good deed performed by a FlyerTalker on behalf of one of our good friends at AA shall now be known as a "Bollar"!

Or I think FT should give RduRes1 some "E-SOS coupon" (or E-Bollar coupon) to send to good FTers like Bollar and our handle will be changed accordingly

You guys are great and I love you all. One of the best things that has happened to me in the past year was finding this board and all the great FTers. I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of you in March

In order to a keep a encourage good deeds, Bollars should be the medium of choice. And in the spirit of spreading Bollar's fame far and wide, I propose the FT Bollar Program.

Here are the rules for the FT Bollar Program.

1. Junior Members starts with 1000 Bollars each (sign up bonus). Members get a 50% bonus (150). Evangelists get a 100% bonus (200).

2. Each FTer can award another FTer Bollars for good deeds/posts/humor etc.

3. Bollars are capacity controlled. Each FTer can award upto 50% of his or her current Bollar Account Balance for a particular post/act/deed to another FTer. The FTers account will be reduced by 10% of the donated amount.

4. Based on your FTer Bollar Status any award you gets multiplied by 1.25 for Gold, 2.0 for Plats and ExPlats.

5. FTer Bollar Status will be determined by the number of Bollars earned in the qualification period following:
Gold : 1000 Bollars or 20 Bollar Awards.
Plat : 2000 Bollars or 40 Bollar Awards.
ExPlat: 4000 Bollars (No award based qualification).

5. Qualification Period: Stretches follows the calendar year; your priveledges extend till the end of February.

6. Jill (RDURES1) can award Bonus Bollars and have promotions for encouraging good deeds.

Stay Tuned for more Bollar Award program news....

Jill, I think many of us hope to make it to spot #3 if you need another favor.

Hello, beautiful people.

I don't know what the fuss is about. I was just acting the way mama brought me up.

In any event, I am pleased that I was able to help Jill out, even just a little bit.
