We're baaaaaack............ Actually, I've been away for a bit thanks to this lousy pancreatic cancer that I'm tangling with. Because of the Chemotherapy and other complications I didn't feel that I could provide adequate moderation of one of our more popular contests. But member Yee-Ming has graciously volunteered to take over that task so we WILL be having a contest with a nice Blu-ray DVD prize package to the winner as in years past! Owner Adam Gregorich will be putting together that package as we get closer to the final week of the competition. But let's talk a bit about how this is going to work. Because of the delay in getting this started we have decided to open the contest the minute that Contestant #11 is eliminated most likely on Thursday March 24, 2011 and close entries the moment that the competition begins with 10 remaining contestants (most likely on 8:00pm EDT sharp on Tuesday March 29, 2011 or Wednesday March 30, 2011). If you are new to these contests check out last year's competition thread HERE. There you will find the rules and other particulars that will get you up to speed. The only major difference in the structure of the competition this year (because we are starting so late compared to last year) is that you will already know who the top ten contestants are (in former years you had to choose them from the top 12) but that will make for an interesting slightly different challenge in some aspects. Of course the goal remains the same - to try to figure out the correct order of finish and if you think that limits the competition be aware that there are well over 3 million unique combinations of ten names used once each (known as permutations to the mathematicians out there). At this point I will turn this competition over to Yee-Ming who will organize the contest as he sees fit. Once again I wish to express my appreciation to him for offering to oversee this very enjoyable contest. Let the games begin!
