Race to the centre of the universe!

The race is to reach the centre of the universe (square 0 -2) closest to 8pm on Sunday 4th September. Start whenever you like - if you start too early you will arrive too early, and if you start too late well, you'll be too late.


ALL ADVICE WELCOME

advice needed - how to get there, how to prove it, how many prizes (winner takes all, or 20 runners-up, etc), military protection for those racing


Hugie - 2000 Gold
Nesse - 600 beer 
any other contributions?

I assume that screenshots of the World Map and the message/report received are the proof needed. Well IT SHOULD be the proof. Or we can also have a ton of people looking at the map at around the race end-time. We should also have a panel of judges or a committee. Experts in spotting photoshopped images are needed. :D
