The time draws near for Round 7 to begin.<br><br>
Just as in baseball we have pitchers and catchers reporting first, in the Virtual Race we ask for captains to sign up first.<br><br>
When Round 6 began, roots asked for volunteers to become team captains. I was nervous. I shouldn't have been. It is easy and fun.<br><br><b>Officially</b>, your responsibilities will be to read through the daily reporting threads, verify that your teammates have correctly calculated their points, and make sure they have entered those points into the scoring database. Correcting most scoring mistakes, in my experience, caused my team to <i>gain</i> points, so you are having a very positive impact.<br><br><b>Unofficially</b>, you are a focal point for your team and an interface for your team with the commish.<br><br>
Captains will also have a <span style="text-decoration:underline;">new, extremely cool, added responsibility</span>, which will take very little time and be easily and quickly accomplished. More on this later.<br><br>
If this round is anything like this round, we will need a lot of captains. I'd like each team to have 2 if possible.<br><br>
Please reply to this message or PM me if you are interested.<br><br>
Cheers,<br>
Billy<br><br>
PS - General sign-up thread tenatively scheduled for next week. See you then.

I can be captain again now that we don't have to access gmail again. I suddenly got blocked from gmail mid way through VRAA 5 and couldn't fulfill my duties. I'm also back from the road, so I'm good to go now.

question - on the scoring database, if you're a captain.. how are you supposed to verify the number of points entered for the team members<br><br>
I guess when the teams are made.. its all available in the 'your team' option on the website?

Team captains have visibility into the scores input by their team members. In fact, you can input scores for them if you need to. So basically, it's a matter of checking the information in the daily thread against the information in the database.

Just a suggestion...but I think it would add a great deal of interest for all team members if they could get visibility into the scoring database. I filled in as team captain for last race and found it fairly motivating to see how I compared to the other runners in the race.<br><br>
I know that the thought might be, that you dont want to make a runner that is not scoring as many points to feel intimidated or something but I think this might be a small price to pay compared to the motivation that it would provide for a majority of the runners.

I could help out some. I'm still in wait & see about my new job ( has to reviewed by HR and approved before I can move foward) and Round #6 was my first round but I loved it and am signed up for round #7. I could co-captain the winning team. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
