    I'm not looking for a free ride, but I'm not sure organising an international team collaboration is quite in my skill set just yet. I am primarily a hardware builder, and secondarily disher of dry Brit witt. (maybe those two should be swapped around?)
    Feel free to pm me with a muppet-proof list of jobs that you think I can't mess up too badly, to get this 2018 TZC ball rollinggggggggg.
     
    Muppets are probably (tm) somewhere, would love to give credit but I'm too much of a muppet.

    I’m in to fold and possibly give away some old relics lying around. With work doing what work does, I won’t be of much more help.

    i think we still need another month or two for things to cool down a bit weather wise. atleast that is what is historically been the case.

    I feel November is a great month, so now is a good time to start planning everything out.

    November 26 sounds like a good day to start.
    It is the Monday after the Turkey Day (4 Day Weekend for most) here in the US.

    Yup,  it's good to see the usual banter is back. 
    apologies for my absences over the last few years. Missed you all.

     
    Seriously tho, good to see some familiar faces.
    And I'm happy to help out , just a bit "self-taught" most of the time so you'd have to use small words, 'n stuff.
    What I am good at is writing SOPs, so we can pass the torch with a bit of instruction. Makes it less collossal undertaking for someone new(bie).

    Just like Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto/Naruto Shippūden being one of my favorite Anime
    We will let you slide this time as Naruto forgives him for all his faults.

    That will all come once they get the Website updated and ready for us.
    Until then we will need to wait, we have plenty of time to plan and set this up for 2018.
    Here are a few Time Zone Challenges from the past, as you can see a lot of work goes in this effort.

    They will have the sign up page, sign up and keep checking back.
    Make note of the start date and time. It is easy and pretty straight forward.
    You will give a guesstamate of how many points per day you think you will produce.

    Hi Teknogroovie, good to see you're still interested.
    When you register, you should be put in an appropriate regional team. They balance the production rates of some smaller teams ie combining them, to make it an even-ish race. then it's just a flat out drag race to the finishing line, competition ends once the last team is over the line. Obviously, it's all about encouraging a point production boost and getting intermittent folders back into it again. Team Effort rather than individual achievement, although solid folding from smaller team members are widely applauded. There's a load of prizes that are donated by individuals on the team - from gift vouchers, to various bits of folding hardware, to coffee mugs, prize-winners are selected at random and not by performance.
    Stick with this post and you'll get fully briefed.
    Hope that helps

    I'm not looking for a free ride, but I'm not sure organising an international team collaboration is quite in my skill set just yet. I am primarily a hardware builder, and secondarily disher of dry Brit witt. (maybe those two should be swapped around?)
    Feel free to pm me with a muppet-proof list of jobs that you think I can't mess up too badly, to get this 2018 TZC ball rollinggggggggg.
     
    Muppets are probably (tm) somewhere, would love to give credit but I'm too much of a muppet.


    PM Troy8d, he can always use some help...




    Thanks HK-Steve, will do.
