As we said last time: worth noticing is that the boundaries for what you would think possible once again were breached! Királys take record from previous round was beaten the next round. By the man who has given the staminatrix medal a face, scoring seven of them this round if I'm correct. Bont from Umeå became the first one to pass 10 000 takes in one round, reaching no less then 10 295 to be exact. With these takes he reached 1 546 263 points and claimed his first gold medal. Very impressive! At second place we find GW007 from Kalmar adding another medal to his nice collection which now contains 3 gold medals and 2 silver medals. At third place we find Király whom with this round adds the only missing of the nobel medals to his collection, now containing 2 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medals. Great job everyone!
The records split into 4 and 5 week rounds:
Bonanza and Event
This winter Lusseturfen is celebrating their 5 year anniversary. This is a Turf event competing on foot in the Västerås forest, you can find more information and application on their webpage uturf.com (Swedish).
As you all know, the Bonanza 2018 will also be arranged in Västerås so now is a good time to prepare and investigate the terrain. Speaking of the Bonanza, the information and application form for arranging the Bonanza 2019 has just been sent out to all the known Turf association. So gather your team and claim the next big Turfing feast to your town!
There are a few different way of adding zone suggestions. The easiest way is by the application but there are a lot of them so many of them are never approved. The zonemaker often ask for some more information and photos of the suggestion in the forums from the turfers. I have written about this in my blog if you want to now more.
For fun I asked one of our developers (SunYour) for some statics regarding the suggestions added in the application, here are the results of most suggestions added through all time:
And then, lets ceck who has gotten most of their suggestions approved:
Nice to see my own name there, a bit down but still :) Think I need to promote my suggestions more in the future to increase my number.
See you zoon!

First of all, sorry about the late letter. It was supposed to be Stardust writing this letter but he adds an excuse in the personal paragraph below.
Worth noticing is that the boundaries for what you would think possible once again were breached, with great margin! Both round points and takes were pulverized, this in a four week round when most other records have been set with one more week at the competitors' disposal! Király, turfing in Malmö, managed doing so by taking an average of 343z/day... Pure madness (we salute you!). First runner up, canon, from Nyköping, also deserves a warm mentioning, keeping the yellow leadershirt on for most of the round, only to fall in the last hours, salvaging a third respectively fourth place on points and takes/round. Impressive, thank you both for great entertainment! At third place we find Pumac from Göteborg, with722 724 points he haven't even reached half the amount of point of the first runner up, talk about a crazy round.
The work with the new design is on-going, hopefully you have noticed the teasers on the website. You may also have noticed some down times on the issue web and the forums. This is because SunYour and HappyF have moved them to new servers. Hopefully you'll find it more stabel in the future and more secured with https.
On a personal note this past month has been very exciting. A little gem came to our world and decided that me and my wife would be great caretakers for 18 years or so. It has dramatically changed our lives and the way I turf. Recently I've found a new way to turf, the experience is well-known but it's new to me. Nowadays I am pushing around the future turfer so he learns what it's all about and he loves it! This has also been a challenging experience in speed-eating, speed-sleeping, speed-... well everything is done really fast nowadays in order to fit in the little angel who never sleeps and is always hungry. Doing things with one hand or even zero, like turning on lights with your nose or elbow is a new technique I'm working on also. In some cases things like this news letter get neglected which is terribly late and I apologise for that.
See you in a zone!
