If you're interested in the next round of the VRAA?

The rules are not finalized, but here's my idea of what you're committing to:

- Next round is Friday March 16 through Sunday April 8 (24 days.)

- There will be a thread for each day. You are required to enter one post per day with your entire workout summary that day. If you're busy or travelling, you can come every few days a post multiple days, if need be. Its flexible.

- Look at the Idea thread for the initial scoring table. It may be tweaked a bit, but the final rules will be posted before the start date.

After I get a show of hands, I will finalize how to pick teams.

I have two ideas: By random drawing, or by a grouped drawing. For the latter idea, I'd take a small questionnaire and divide the participants into several groups. The purpose is to avoid having a team of all marathoners and Ironman triathletes on one team. I'd like to see a fair mix.

I had also thought about captains' picks, but I would opt to avoid the drama. Unless that's a tradition with the VRAA. bom.gif

Keep in mind that my intent is to have fun, include as many as possible, and to keep it simple.

Unless there are any objections, I've been asked to moderate here. How does all of this sound?

This should be fun.

I need somebody to help me convince bugdude to participate - I think he's afraid that he's not going to be able to contribute enough points to be a good teammate. I tried to convince him that not everyone here is a marathoner who logs 80 miles a week, but I'm not sure he's buying it.

Bugdude, if you're listening, please jump on board. While this event is to promote a friendly team-competition, it matters not your training volume. We hope that the VRAA will motivate you to do a little something each day, at your own levels.

Okay better to post in here... I'm In

Now combos, different story, they are both pretzels and cheese. If you get one without cheese, that means the bag is haunted. Shawn Spencer

This sounds like a lot of fun.

I wasn't so sure I could contribute all that much, but after reading the "ideas" thread, I'm in.

I am just now getting back into working out, after some stuff I had to deal with.

I may not be able to do as much as some people but I will TRY!!!!
