Along time ago on a folding server far far away...
 
 
It is a period of folding war.  Rebel folders, crunching from an overclocked rig have won their first victory against the evil diseases plaguing humanity.
 
During the battle, rebel folders managed to steal secret plans to troy8d's ultimate weapon, the End of Year 13 Folding Challenge, a folding contest with enough power to fold an entire server's worth of WUs.
 
Pursued by sinister agents, Pimpness Drougnor races home to fire up his stats rig, custodian of the folding stats that can track the winner and restore freedom to the galaxy....
 
 
 
 
I'm looking for a few volunteers to captain a folding team for a potential upcoming folding contest.  As a team captain you'll oversee and encourage your team as well as pick the team name and, if you'd like (but not required), create a banner, team strategy thread, team motto, team colors, etc.  Inspiration from past greats can be found (and even adopted) here.

    I am happy to throw some punches as a henchman, but I can not be the mob boss due to work requirements and an already overloaded schedule as is.

    Does that mean that you're signing up to captain the F@Holding Pimps?

    Many people are saying, drougnor sent his Pimp cape to be pressed for service. His cane is forever bent, but that's another story...
     
    A different kind of contest, we haven't had for a year or two. SWEET!

    I like this idea. Maybe the crunching team can show the folders how it’s done

    Before we can have any contest we need to have some teams, and teams start with captains.  So far no one has stepped up claim a team.

    I'm game for most challenges and contests. At least the ones I'm already working on anyway. I usually kick it up a notch for community events.

    Aww man tell me about it.
     
    Well we better do it before Spring. One car is 28 years old and one is 16. Always something to do.
    The 93 Mustang is leaking green fluid, can't see from where.
    Maybe pull the motor, go over it. While its out thinking new transmission, Tremic TKO600 or a T56 Magnum.
    I have way too much power in it now for the old world-class T5
    Always wanted to do a 351 swap, stroked to 408, put the blower back on. Wee Wee Weeeeee all the way home!!!

    I see my name on the signup sheet from back then, I can't seem to remember it.
    Sucks getting old!!! (No cracks from the peanut gallery)
    I do remember doing the Chimp Challenge though. That was a lot of fun.
     
    I see there was a team Crunching Tigers/Folding Dragons I kind of like that.
    Looking at Xavier Zepherious's banner it's shaking some cobwebs.

    While its nice that people are willing to participate in the contest, anyone else want to be the captain of a team?  Its not that difficult to do - we need couple more teams and then we can get this contest underway!

    From previous contests, the most difficult part of captaining is ensuring all of your folk are folding when they need to be, but otherwise we spent a great deal of the time just engaged in polite trash talk, much like the TZC. 
    I'll officially throw my wide brimmed Pimp Hat down on the pile - The F@holding Pimps will ride (In the back of a souped up and VERY decked out Caddy!) again!

    use that to put in new breaker panel and 5 new circuits - in like 5-6 months
    seeing that no one can get a card right now
     
    oh!!! i found cards even in canada - brampton Ontario has 5 of them instore (not online) so unless im flying im not getting
     
    thing is i can write off portion of electric for this(bitcoin) with [link=mailto:f@H]f@H[/link] - i talk to tax professional today
    i can wriite off the hardware - the new breaker panel.... even the rebuild of the garage in a few years

    Idk man, got so much going on at work, but if nobody else will, how about The Unforgiven Folders?
    What is it I need to do, just motivate folks on the team that aren't folding?
