Summer Hiatus Challenge 2015 - Round 6 Day 6

Post by BoK »

And so it ends, the regular season. Thanks to everyone who played, I hope you enjoyed it.

Also thanks to everyone who helped put this together. Category writers, judges, and especially my co-host rjaguar3 who doesn't get enough credit because these posts go out under my name, not his. He not only did all the scoring, he wrote many of the categories (the good ones), and edited all the ones I wrote. Thanks.

Of course SHC 2015 doesn't completely end today. If you are in running for the TOC, check back Monday for the TOC invitation/RSVP thread.

Back to today. On this last day of the regular season, we have two categories which have become somewhat of a tradition. Good luck.
