TTR Challenge #25- Week #15

Post by KSTAT124 » Thu Nov 09, 2017 10:04 am

We only had 5 TTR members participate in Week #14. Originally, the Challenge lasted 17 weeks. Somewhere along the line, it was increased to 26 weeks. If we continue to have only 5 participants, TTR Challenge #25 will end with the 17th week. Sorry, but it seems the board is saying the Challenge has run its course. Apathy? Disinterest? Lack of time? Who knows?

Anyway, here's this week's lineup:

Maybe Preztees or David can figure a way to have the topic bumped on the B&G everytime somebody post here?
Just a thought, though a primary reason is players throwing in the towel if they fall too far off the pace.

One of the reasons we only had 5 participants last week was that both tainos and, this is embarrassing, I forgot to enter our picks! I could have sworn I had but obviously I hadn't!
