When will it end?
|The muscles of the stomach rotate the pelvis to stay in harmony with the turning inside ski. - Rick|
Hey, I need a responsible third party to keep track of the MMB's and to post the standings every now and then. As I said, I'm going to award something cool to the top three. The race will end when Rick, Wolf, Tommy, RicB and I all agree that we have beat this thing to death,,,,,, I wonder, are we getting close?
I believe this post will end upon new snow or when you all take up Tai Chi Chuan and truly understand Waist Skills (W_S)
I have just decided the MMB thing is The MSRT Virtual Race, (MVR) yeah, that's the ticket
And now for some housekeeping
-Nolo gets 5 for the Snazzy Emperor
-Whoever came up with nothing, just a belt, can't you see it gets 3
-SpringHill Crazie for getting me into "Da Lounge" gets 10!!!
-Bonni gets 7 for just being her
-CheckRacer has 5, he needs to particpate more in between gear articles
- PM gets 10 for his excellent post on forces (I still need a suggestion for how to express Centrip/Centrif in posts)
- RicB (to be added to the tally) gets 7 points for his devil advocacy and making me answer tough questions.
-Wolf can't play :
I need to see the scoreboard to see if I've missed anybody. I know MedMarkco and JASP already have some, right? Who's got the scoreboard? An extra 5 for the official scorer!!
MVR News Update
Going forward I am going to PM the judges with things I believe deserve points to make sure this doesn't turn into a popularity contest. A judge can Race but can't rule on their own points.
My judges are Rick, RicB, The Rusty, and I need one more to make it 5 and one alternate when judges must sit out. Let me know if you are interested. If we are going to play, let's play!
MVR News Update II
Our own TheRusty has agreed to be our official score keeper. He is started a sister thread to keep track of the MVR Points Race (MPR). I will not be going in there to keep my point awards unbiased and fair as possible (though since this is a subjective process it is somewhat up to me).
I have invited some of the more active members to be judges, but with the separate MPR thread I can handle it so this doesnt' get too clunky.
Now that we have an official score keeper, TheRusty, we can move forward with this year's MVR!
I will dole out MMB's based on a 1 - 10 scale of the merits of the post to the thread. I will dole out points based on the contribution to the post regardless of whether the post agrees or disagrees with the MSRT presentations. It is simply based on the merits of the post, question or comment to the overall quiality of this thread.
The offical score board is here
Not all racers have been updated as of this time, be patient as theRusty is getting up at O'dark thirty for a quick trip to Ca. to play Torrey Freaking Pines!!! Lucking Dawg!!
The official conclusion of this race will be announced sometime early this coming season or before based on the progress and interest in the thread.
Here are the prizes
1st Rossignol Race Stock 9Xti, with Plates, Men's or Women's, any length (you buy the binders, but it will be at the MSRT price, we don't add anything to anything - ya know what I mean, its all for the benefit of our racers!)
2nd 1 box of Holmenkol base Wax, 1 Box of Holmenkol racing wax (your choice of low floural temp waxes)
3rd Uvex 3 Pack Blades Sunglasses, comes with 3 lenses
Don't panic, we are just getting this underway, enjoy and have fun with this!
