The First 100: (by Frank Kelly)

John G and I completed or 100 Dumyats on 17th Dec 1992. I was looking back my diary for that year and noticed that I had done my 50th Dumyat on 1st October.......for about 10 weeks after that it was Dumyat frenzy and the Dumyat count for the last 5 weeks up until the 100th was 33. The most I done in any week was 8......I have a feeling that John may have done more than that in 1 week but I'm not sure.....I remember that one weekend day he done 3 consecutives.
