The Qtr Million+ Club needs a group leader. Anyone interested?

Responsibilities include investigation into the member requesting to join as to whether they have actually rolled over 250k or not.

As the group leader it will be your job to only allow those in Qtr Mile Club who can prove that they have 250k+ on their odometer. Have them post a photo of their odometer so we can qualify them for the club. Feel free to do the kilometer<>mile conversion if required. You'll also be the guy who receives the requests when somebody requests to be in the group.

Do we have any active reliable member that is willing to take on this role? Someone who is already in the Qtr Mil Club is preferred. ihatemybike maybe?
