Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins » Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:07 pm

Announcements here as needed.

Announcement #1 -- R3D4 will be delayed, and I don't know for how long. Doctors want to take some pictures of my gall bladder in the morning, and I don't know how long it will take or when (or if) they'll let me come home afterwards. And even if tomorrow goes off without a hitch, further delays are possible in the next week or so.

However it turns out, and however long it takes, I am committed to completing the full regular season and the TOC. Whenever it gets posted, the next "official" day of the SHC will be counted as R3D4. In the mean time, feel free to play amongst yourselves.

Thank you for your patience.
