2012 Race

I am about to leave town for the remainder of the year so I thought I would post a few reminders about last minute registrations.

1. Registration for the 2012 Great TB Race will end on Christmas Day. That means I will be turning off the registration either late Christmas Eve or the morning of Christmas Day. Depends on when I can get to the computer as I will not have my usually constant access.

2.Anyone in the Nashville area who is planning on going to the starting event has up until December 31st to register, provided they bring their entry to the event. Please contact the event host to not only inform him of your entry, but also to get the link to the registration form.  You still need to fill that out for records.  He also needs to know as we are currently about to cross the 100 entry threshold.  I hadn’t anticipated that many so he will likely need to make some more tags to attach to your racers.  I only made 104.

3. For those in the 2011 race, please be a bit patient with us in January as we double check our numbers.  We appear to have a clear winner already, but 2nd through 5th place is still anyone’s game.  We want to make sure we have the right info.  I will keep you posted.

That is it for now.  Everyone enjoy the holidays.



November Points Update

The November points update got posted last night, but I forgot to make an announcement. It was a LOOOONG day. So here is the announcement, along with a note that the points had another set of data added tonight. That leaves one more set to have a full update.

I should also note that short of a rather LUCKY miracle, I think we have a clear winner on our hands. Flashy is currently almost 500 points ahead of the 2nd place racer as of the end of November. That means that the month of December is going to be a tight race for who gets 2-5th place honors and prizes. Can Drunken Swede hold onto his 70 points lead? Will Tiki Tiki, who is in 5th place only by 1 point, maintain that position? It is still anyone’s game at this point as even one good movement can quickly change the tide of those positions.

Keep waiting as more news for both 2011 and 2012 comes in over the coming week.

I have a points update for November, but it is currently missing some items.  I will post the update tomorrow evening to give some volunteers a chance to get numbers submitted for a more complete update.  Stay tuned.
