This is the last day of the regular season. There are several announcements:
  • The regular season closes at 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday night (September 10). This is so I can get the TOC invites out on Monday for sign-ins. The TOC will start on Wednesday, September 13 and run through Tuesday, September 19, with the medal ceremony scheduled for Friday, September 22.
  • As a reminder, you are welcome to catch up on any days you haven't played (as long as you haven't been spoiled on the answers), and the points will count towards the wild card standings. Make sure to post those responses by the Sunday night deadline.
  • The first stage of voting for the 2017 Paucle Memorial Award for Outstanding Writing is now open. Visit https://goo.gl/forms/J0WBv3lBJMRwM3QD3 to vote for up to six of your favorite categories. The ten categories with the most votes will proceed to the final stage. This first stage will be open until Friday, September 15 (a week from today).
  • On a related note, thanks to everyone who submitted a guest category. The final count is 35(!) guest categories. This includes today's guest category by mujason. Thanks, mujason.
  • And finally, thank you all for playing this summer! I hope you've enjoyed it.
On to Round 6, Day 6.
