I'm thinking you're relatively safe on that one!

Added. You will note that all volunteering is noted using the exact words of the volunteer. ;)

Ah, I should have noted that in the "initial organizing" section. It's been added now.

Isn't that what Willy Wonka said about the chocolate river?

*groan*


Anyway, I will definitely do a pointless prize or two. Just haven't decided yet what for - probably figure out something in January.

If you intend to be a Slacker: Don't forget that we still need someone to set up the Strava club for the Slackers, since they have no captain. Can someone help with this?

I will be the Slacker team captain. I did such a bang up job not motivating anyone the first year for "Team II", I know I'll do even worse this year... And hey, there's always Fallout 4 to play.

Pete, correct me if I am wrong, but I have you signed up for an actual team... Let me know if this is not accurate and I will delete your registration info.

Sunyata, his registration form says, "Due to Injury, if there is a slackers team, I would want to be on it." I sent him an e-mail yesterday pointing out that there is no longer a Slackers "team," and that slackers aren't supposed to use the registration form, and asking him whether he wanted to be assigned to a team or to wait for January to be a Slacker. I haven't gotten a response yet, but I assume his post means he chose the latter. If he can confirm, I'll delete his registration.

Didn't want to be on a team this year, but wanted to participate. So whatever needs to happen administratively, please do. :)

Just a reminder: The first post in this thread includes a list of everyone who has volunteered.

If you have volunteered for something specific: It is up to you to follow up and do the thing you volunteered for.

If you have volunteered, but weren't sure what to volunteer for: The above categories give you an idea of what types of help we're looking for. You may want to pick out something and contact someone on that list to figure out how you can help.

If you need help: We've got several people at the bottom of this list who have indicated a willingness to help, but haven't picked out a specific task. You may want to contact one or more of them to ask if they can help.
