I'm not familiar with the BIG DAYS thread, can anyone clue me in?

The 14erWorld thread is a slam dunk though. The fallout and aftermath make that thread of the year.

We should hold nominations in specific categories during the month of November and voting during the first two weeks of December.

...and we can certainly refer to these awards as the "Billies".

On the contrary, I think this thread deserves to be commended. :-D
