    Okay,I will.


    In this ORG, you will be playing SOLO. You will complete challenges, done for how efficiently and effectivey you finish them. You will receive points based on this. Points are bad!


    After aboutfour parts of a leg, the player with the most points will be "elininated from the race".

    Welcome everyone!!!


    I am so thankful for Brett taking over this last week. I had a recent diagnosis of influenza A....let me tell you people GET YOUR FLU SHOTS! It's going to be a rough season this year and I would not wish influenza A on my worst enemy. It took me almost 3 weeks to recover which included 2 ER visits to get IV fluids. Yuck


    But I am back and healthy. Brett and I are so excited! We would love to see at least four more players sign up But if not we will decide a start date soon.


    Also, I will discuss with Brett and we will post the Welcome post with the rules soon as well so you can get a feel of how things will run.


    Can't wait !!

    Announcement:


    One thing you can begin working on while we near the start date is what you want your team to be known as. For example, I may want to be called:


    Amanda, The Registered Nurse or I may want to do something more fun Amanda, The Crazy Kansan


    Whatever you want to make, it's yours to choose.


    Please PM your choice to myself or Brett once you decide!


    Thanks

    Hello Brett and Amanda,

    I have no reason to believe that this season will be anything but a success. However, I have to take my name off the list of participants for this season.

    Sorry! Good Luck.

    Really sad to see you go, Marco, but I understand. If you change your mind you can have your spot back with open arms

    Hey people! We want to start on September 15, is anyone else going to be conflicted by Yom Kippur?


    And also we want you to fill this bio card out I'll do an example.



    Name: Brett



    Age: 16



    Location: Chicagoland, Illinois, USA



    Zodiac Sign: Libra



    Relationship Status: Single. 16 years and counting



    Children: None

    Favorite Holiday: I have many:


    1. The Jewish High Holidays (mainly Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur). Sure, sitting in synagogue all day doesn't sound desirable, but I feel really in touch with my religion after this


    2. Hanukkah. We get eight days, not just one!


    3. New Year's Eve/Day. It's fun to count down the seconds.



    Natural High: Playing football aka "Fetch" with my dog or sitting at the piano and having a Billy Joel/Elton John Jam Session!
