Last year, although the electronic entries closed a week after the manual ones, the organisers stuck with the midday deadline - there were people entering right up to the last minute.
I was expecting the same today but it has gone quiet this evening.
My prediction of 2,000 is certainly not going to happen.
In fact, we still need another 21 to break the record. I think its going to touch and go.
What surprises me is, not so much the number of new entrants but, the number from last year who have not returned.
The publicity this year has been absolutely brilliant so you wonder how many would have entered without it.
