    Is there any interest in a friendly race between [H] and TAAT? We're thinking the first week or 10 days in December. We're having our 14th annual holiday season race during the month of December. TAAT members sign up and we split up into 2 teams for an intra-team race. Some of us who run BOINC for most of the year join in and run F@H for the month.

    We thought it would be fun to challenge another team for a separate race too. I think the two teams match up pretty well especially if you boinc guys bring in your impressive hardware.

    Nathan_P, is this something you think some of the FAH guys would be interested in? I honestly don't know if many of them are around the forums much these days. I have pointed out this thread in our Slack channel just in case someone is interested. Also note, this is during the normal WCG X-mas challenge as it typically goes the whole month of December, so people would need to configure things accordingly.

    I do enjoy a little friendly competition. I should be able to do this I think.

    We're on board, so it's up to you guys on whether or not it's a go. I'd like to keep it simple so how does this sound?

    1) There's no need for individuals to sign up. Only team stats will be followed so anyone folding for both teams will be participating whether they know it or not.
    2) Starting/baseline team stats will be recorded on December 1, 12:00 UTC from EOC stats, so only points recorded after that time will count.
    3) The race end date will be December 8th, 12:00 UTC

    Woohoo! :)

    Looks like some of our guys got cold already, we are out-producing you at the moment, but you guys are way on up above us in overall rank....this should prove interesting!

    Don't forget to add your 'key' to new machines so they get the quick-return bonus immediately instead of after 10(?) tasks.
