2012 SHC TOC -- Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Fri Sep 21, 2012 2:43 pm

First, a couple of thank you's:

Thank you to bpmod for getting things back up and running yesterday.

Thank you to rjaguar3 for building and maintaining the scoreboard site this year.

Now a procedural announcement:

The SHC TOC invitation thread shows the official field for this year's finale. Some of the invitees have not yet posted their intent to play, so there is a waiting list. Players on the waiting list are invited to post "provisional" entries. In the event that a member of the official field chooses not to participate, waiting list players will be listed in the official field in descending order of regular season scores.

There will also be a "peanut gallery" thread for those who might like to play along. Enjoy.

On we go.

4: In one event of the modern pentathlon, athletes are randomly assigned one of these partners twenty minutes before the competition starts.

6: In 1959, Gordon Gould coined this acronym for a form of radiation that replaced air cartridges in modern pentathlon pistols in 2011.

10: A modern pentathlon cross-country race could be run between the Don and Dee Rivers, near this third-most-populous Scottish city.

12: This movement took its name from the date of a failed 1953 attack in Cuba.
