Very enjoyable quiz, and I say this not only because I did fairly well on it. You managed to make many of the questions quite accessible to a person like me who has very little knowledge of Bulgaria beyond its geographical location and very basic demographic information.

Rundles are up. I'm where I pretty much always have -- been C Pac 2.

I've been moved from Continental B to Prairie B whatever that may mean for me.

I'm in the yuge 34-person C Horizon (or is it Chorizo N?). I get really nervous in the small divisions, because I've narrowly avoided getting relegated twice, so I was glad I got in a big rundle. I recognize quarterrican, caknuck, and thethirdmoose. This will be my sixth straight season in C.
In for a second lap

I've going to play in B Horizon this season. Last season I finished 4th on tie-breakers, but got promoted because of attrition and/or population of newly-created leagues.

Tomorrow, I'm off to Home Depot to buy new batteries for my thinking cap. Think I'll need them.

I finished in the bottom quintle, thanks to some ghastly decisions re what questions to money. That said, I thought you did a great job of crafting questions, and I enjoyed taking part in your one-day.

I'm in Rundle E Pacific Division 2 again this season -- along with a few people who have been in my division during my entire LL career...long enough for a few rivalries to develop. The promotion zone has been narrowed to only the top 3 for LL72.

I'm in E Magnolia Div 2. My projection system has me finishing 18th, though I have been known to beat my projections. I don't really want to get promoted again until I can hit 60 TCA, but maybe a top 10 finish isn't out of the question?

Prairie C here. Anyone else? Don't recognize any names there thanks to realignment and promotion at the same time. My goal? Don't end up in the top 20 unluckiest llamas like I did last time I was in C. Ha. Those of you in Prairie B get my brother. I'm hoping either he gets relegated or I get promoted (both highly unlikely) so we can face off. Good luck to all!

See you in B Horizon. I'm thinking of getting my cap relined, or refurbished, or something.

I'll be hanging on by my fingernails in Horizon A with woof, Ryno, reddpen, and KillerTomato. Did I miss anyone?

ETA Uh, yeah, I meant A Continental. Alternative facts, man...

You, of course, mean Continental A, my old stomping ground.

Well, you won't have me to stomp on anymore. I just woke up from a 2-season absence and discovered I'm in the new Prairie A.... with cbec and a whole lot of names that I don't recognize. Huge rundle with 32.

Bayou R. Here we go! I've been doing pretty poorly at the 1DS, but it's all fun anyways, and I'll learn a lot!
Won some of Ben Stein's money. None of Alex Trebek's, and maybe some of Chris Harrison's?

After 5 seasons where I was able to escape relegation (often miraculously), my less-than-stellar performance last season has moved me down from Piedmont D Div 2 to Piedmont E Div 2. Here's to clawing my way back up to D! :)
