Preblast for the Week of October 31st

What we did last week:
M: 68, T: 59, W: 60, Th: 58, F: 56, Weekend: 44 = 345 Total Posts!

3 FNGs (Welcome!): Bunyan (Berm), Jungle Juice (Lair) & Short Round (Sandlot)

2 WLs: Cruiser (F3 Houston) & Dr. Suess (F3 St. Louis)

T-claps to Fish Food for completing both his AO and Q passports! Another T-claps to Ice Capades for completing his Q passport. He already earned his AO passport earlier this year. Well done!

Highlights for this week:
KOTB for November runs Sunday (Oct 30) through Wednesday (Nov 2). There is a new KOTB format starting this month, with the goal of giving every AO some “stake in the game”.
Details of the new format are:

AOs will be divided into two teams:

Team 1Team 2
8 TrackAnnex
Air Up ThereBarracks
Blazing SaddleCatalog
Dolly’s DepotField of Dreams
FalkorGreen Mile
Quad CityOld Forest
Six WicketPit

Mothership and Ruckership are not included, because that is where it all started for F3 Memphis, and those AOs belong to the whole region! Outside of those two, ALL other AOs will be counted for KOTB! The counting will run from Sunday-Wednesday, during the predetermined KOTB week, and the team with the highest post total will be deemed the winner!

-Each AO can count ONE day during the counting period. If an AO has multiple days during that time frame, the highest total will be chosen. (Ex: If Levee has 13 on Monday, and 16 on Wednesday, then they will get credit for 16 for KOTB)
-PAX can be counted at multiple AOs for the same team, or on both teams, during the same week. (Ex: if someone posts at Green Mile Sunday, Levee on Monday, Lair on Tuesday, then FoD and Berm on Wednesday, that PAX would log 2 points for team 1, and 3 points for team 2)
-All FNGs count for 2 points, during those 4 days, even if their post day isn’t the one that gets counted. (Ex: Berm gets 2 FNGs on Monday, but then has highest total of week on Wednesday, they still get to add the 4 points to the Wednesday total). After the winner is determined, KOTB flag can travel around to the various AOs, for the winning side. We will leave it to AOQs to coordinate.
