The 31st of April. Archie Mercer once absentmindedly set a voting deadline, in OMPA, for 31 April, and Walt Willis, noting that he as OMPA President had power to deal with all emergencies ("...not just OMPA emergencies -- all emergencies!") decreed that thereafter the 1st May would be known as 31 April, to be followed immediately by 2 May.
