    Hi Dan, when I watched the video afterwards, I see it is not as clear as it can be. But, this has got to be one of the HARDEST challenges, I think. So I presume I would battle to do it again and I decided to submit it. I had to try over 110 (hundred and ten) times. Exhausting, but I won't let Stephen Kish think he's better. Hopefully that is in the spirit of Challengers. Thank you. Alastair.

    Dear GWR, I began the attempt scoring 45 at 00:47 seconds on the video. This is my final attempt in the video. I hope this helps. Regards, Alastair.

    Dear Dan, I used old batteries from workshops etc, and some "AA" print is hard to see because some are still dirty/worn. I trust this attempt is clearer for the video. Thank you. Alastair.

    Yeah Guinness loves doing it to me. I apply for a record, and find out the rules are not what the title turns out
