Am I missing something? If the Nomads were the last to arrive, we can't count bonus points, right?

If I'm right with that, we have 8 total bouns points to date.

And I'm reporting 7 home runs out of 10 pitches.

That high score of 5 for hitting home runs is for the Nomads...hopefully we'll report back soon with a new high score!

Once every team member has achieved this challenge or after 24 hours has passed, you will be able to continue your exercise time to complete your travel to the next destination.

**ATTENTION** 2 Bonus Points may be used to complete this challenge. One bonus point represents one player.

Adventurers and Vagabonds--

Post-It-Notes are manufactured exclusively in Cynthiania, Kentucky. While visiting the factory you were given so many sample post-its that your ran out of things to do with them. Instead of sticking post-its all over your desk or on the fridge, you place one on the center of the target in Wii Tennis target practice.

Before the end of 24 hours please post the best score that anyone on your team has been able to achieve. The winning team will deduct 5 hours of exercise from the total time required to travel to the next destination. The losing team will add 5 hours of exercise from the hours of exercise required to travel to the next destination.

Challenge ends at: 6:12 pm Saturday (ET)

--hopefully before your fireworks show!! lol.

Just an update to the teams. We are trying to work out the "bugs" in this challenge so that everyone enjoys it. The Mini-Olympics was intended to get the teams evened out a little so it wouldn't get boring to the teams way out ahead or to those that haven't caught up yet. I would love to see the lead change a lot of times during the course of the race as it would make it more exciting.

I have received some e-mailed suggestions from various members and they have some really good ideas. If you can all just bear with us while we try to fine tune things I believe we can come up with solutions that everyone will be comfortable with.

Thank you all for your input. This is your challenge so we want to make it fun for everyone.

You're keeping us "on our toes" all right! I don't see one event in the Olympics that we can do while sitting on our backside! lol (Well, OK, having seen my 6-yr-old niece "jogging" while sitting on the edge of the couch pumping the Wiimote up and down, I suppose it is possible, but you couldn't do your best!)

Absolutely, just like if you were bowling in a league. You can't just pick and choose the best games. It's typical to have one or two good games out of three and that third game just be a dud. So yes, the three games should be bowled together.

For those teams that will be waiting for a little while, why not have some mini-challenges within your team as well to keep you motivated while you wait.

You could take one day where you all compete in 5 of the events and the next day you all compete in the other 5 or something like that. I don't like to see idle hands, or butts for that matter.

I shoulda been a drill sergeant. Hut two, keep moving soldier.

GRAPHICKAT - Great question for you from the Voyagers (I was not smart enough to think of it): In the Bowling (3 game series) is that 3 games one after the other as in real bowling or is it just the best 3 scores added together?

TENACITY is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination!

Graphickat,
Thanks for the clarification. I think you've done a great job of balancing advantages of getting to Vermont as soon as possible with the desire to let the other teams catch up. Makes the race interesting, mixes things up. I think it would have gotten kind of boring if it stayed the same throughout the 50 states, and if you somehow got behind, you'd have no hope of ever catching up if there wasn't this "twist". I like it.

And thanks for clarifying the "balance bubble" question. Duh! I could've been practicing the wrong game for weeks! lol

Even though the events are published ahead of time and the teams that are still working toward Vermont can certainly use those events as exercise time in order to practice, they cannot use the scores until they are actually participating in the Olympics. So the very last team to arrive will only have 24 hours to get their hightest scores. If someone on the first team to arrive happens to get a really great score in an event today they get to count it where the teams who have not arrived may get a really great score while practicing and not be able to count it.

Our intention with this was not to make teams lose motivation but to prevent that from happening. I thought it would be more fun for the teams to be closer, and it's supposed to be fun as well as motivational.

Sorry Mommy T, but I see it as losing motivation and making progress, That's just my opinion. Sometimes we all have too many of those. LOL!

I'm off to work on games with everyone else! Best of luck everyone.

lol--the problem being, even if it wasn't stated out loud, people do know the games already. So, there's no real way to say "no you can't" and expect it to be followed. Sorry, CookieDog...but it does give your teams time to rest on other exercise and time to focus on just those games.

So the teams that reached Vermont have not real advantage in reaching high scores as everyone can work on the events.

actually, balance bubble is the one where you have to go up the river without popping the bubble your Mii is in. It is NOT the same as Table Tilt.

Correct...right now you can practice the games (and count them as exercise time), BUT the scores (to count) have to be done once you are through Vermont.

Clarification on the Olympics... So we obviously can start practicing these events now, but is it correct that we can only count scores that we achieve after we have reached Vermont?

Also, by balance bubble do you mean table tilt? (Not trying to be picky but someone not familiar with the games might be confused by the different name.)

There's also a "subscribe to discussion" button (the right button beside the "reply" and the "create new topic" buttons) that will work if you need to resubscribe to a thread. (sometimes those things escape our notice--you'll never believe how long it took me to find the "add a link" button on the message posting page...lol.)
