    1975 City of Sydney Co-Champion

    The NSWCA website lists the following winners of the 1975 City of Sydney.

    M. MacMillan, A. Rose, P.J. Viner, A. Flatow

    Can anyone confirm is the first is Malcolm MacMillan (the only M. MacMillan in my oldest ACF Master File)?

    Good morning Baz

    That is an extraordinary claim of yours.
    Given that you state you have a metric that measures the number of extraordinary claims, could you share the metric with us.

    Aha
    A puzzle for me eh?

    Now let me see.
    You just begun >>> that means you counted 1.

    You got to 40 >>> that means middle age for you.

    CONCLUSION. You have not yet got extraordinary proof; in fact all you have done is extrapolate from one data point. No loss of marks for you though given that half the population has the same methodology.

    BTW, what was the one extraordinary claim you have come across so far?
