2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Tournament of Champions, Day 6

Post by DadofTwins »

One of the biggest frustrations I've had over the years during SHC season is the unpredictable nature of my work. Being a minister means my physical presence is only really required 5 hours per week, but I'm on call for 163, and I never know which (or how many) of those 163 I might have already allotted for doing something else are going to be needed at any given time.

That said, I apologize for the delays this weekend.

Here is SHC TOC Day 6. I'll get completed days scored today, and as soon as I get this batch scored we'll have the medal ceremony.

    They that have done this deed are honorable;

    That made them do it. They are wise and honorable,
    And will, no doubt, with reasons answer you.
