Betty (WakeUp60) posted this on the main thread @ 6:34pm today, so I'm just posting her time here:

"Hey Nomads! Are we now on the next journey? If so I did 4:45 hours of exercise today. What with the steady walking at work and my time for wii sports a few minutes ago that is what I have to report. It is 5:34 central standard time here so just reporting in."

Sorry I have been MIA, had a big family 4th of July. Great job to whoever got the 9 homeruns. I am horrible at that. Ready to log some hours because I am majorily deep cleaning the house today.

We're off to Pennsylvania. Since they didn't ask for distance we tied with the Wanderers and we will both need 25 hours to PA! Let's get moving!

Just returned from a busy day, church, then 50th anniversary party...I won't be much use in the baseball challenge as my shoulder has yet to recover from the tennis match last week (I overdid it) emoticon

However, I am prepared to walk this week to get us to the next state! Lee

Didn't see any updates to our thread since last night - not sure if there is a problem or if nobody had checked in...looks like we're hitting homeruns. WAKEUP60 already posted a high score of 5 on the main thread...did we have any bonus time from the last state that we need to report?


Wanderers and Nomads:

I need bonus times from you both--check the report thread to know what times count.

Baseball players Willi Mays and Hank Aaron were both born in Alabama. You go to the local batting cage and play Wii Baseball hitting home runs.

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: 12:24 am Monday.

Just stopped by to post some time and saw we have arrived! Way to go everyone! Sorry to not have been much help the past couple of days...things have been a bit crazy and I've found myself a bit off track. Time to rectify that and get back on plan...and hopefully help kick some butt on the next challenge!

Ok, here it is:

MINI-OLYMPICS

In an effort to keep the teams traveling at a somewhat even pace, thus making the race more fun for everyone, there will be a break after every 10 states for a Mini-Olympics challenge. The Mini-Olympics will start as soon as the first two teams complete their challenge in Vermont, and will continue until the last team to complete their challenge in Vermont has an opportunity to compete for 24 hours in the Mini-Olympics.

The longer your team is participating in the Mini-Olympics the more time you have to work towards a better/perfect score. There will be 10 events in which each team will compete. Since each team has 10 players, your team will report a final score for only one player in each event. You do not have to pre-assign a player to an event, you can see what the best score is by each player in each event then decide how you want to report your scores. You cannot report more than one score per player. For example, Mary happens to have the best score in ski jump and also in super hula hoop, your team has to decide which one would be most beneficial to your team as her score would be posted in ONLY the Ski Jump or ONLY the super hula hoop. If you are temporarily missing a player or players, you must leave one event with no score for each player.

The events are:
Snowboard Slalom (advanced)
Super Hula Hoop (10 Minutes)
Soccer Heading (advanced)
Ski Jump
Balance Bubble (advanced)
Bowling (Picking up spares)
Bowling (3-game series)
Bowling (Power throws)
Boxing (Training - Dodging)
Golf (Putting practice)

SCORING:
If your team has the highest score in an event you will get 2 points. If your team is tied with another team or multiple teams for high score in an event, each team will get 1 point. If your team does not have high score you get 0 points. Points from all ten events will be added together to determine the winner. If there is a tie for first place, both teams will be awarded the 1st place prize. Same goes for the 2nd & 3rd place prizes.

1st Place will need 10 hours of exercise to Rhode Island
2nd Place will need 15 hours of exercise to Rhode Island
3rd Place will need 20 hours of exercise to Rhode Island
All other teams will need 25 hours of exercise to Rhode Island

Since everyone will be leaving at the same time for the next destination you will not be able to use your bonus points to get there.

The following are answers from Graphic Kat to questions that have come up so far.


No reason to track your exercise hours. I have to believe at the rate everyone was exercising a little break might be in order. Of course being the competitors that you are I'm sure you will be getting some pretty high scores in the olympics.

It really doesn't affect the race EXCEPT, it gives the teams further back a chance to catch up a little and keep them from being too discouraged and may give you a different team to go up against in challenges, and give you great skills at these particular challenges.

The two teams way in the back started out with the same number of players but unfortunately had a couple who never really started or dropped out very soon after.

If we let two teams finish so far ahead of everyone else you know there would be a lot of whining because the race was over. Just kidding, but everyone seems disappointed whenever the challenges end.

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.


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.

Sorry I didn't help out with our challenge. Between not feeling well and life in general, I didn't even get on again until this AM and now I find out it's over.

I'll be going out of town July 6-14 and will not have my Wii so challenges are out but I'll still be able to log in and help with travel time.

We have a new twist to the race. It's called Mini Olympics. It will happen every 10 states so all teams can start off on an even playing field again. What we need to do now is make it to our 10th state ASAP so we can begin to log Mini Olympic points. I'll copy/paste the rules in my next post. Watch for it soon.

SBERNAR, you swing when the ball is going by the front player and the front player will hit it. My 5 year old daughter asked why I did not swing when it went by the first person. Sometimes they are just to smart.

Thought it might be easier if we list out everyone who is done so the last one to finish can post in the main thread if we get done before the 24 hours.

It took me three games to finally win the best of three, but the other team had a skill rating almost double mine! That doesn't seem fair!

Completed the 2 out of 3 tennis challenge.

I finally figured out how to hit the ball with the front court player.

Wow, You all make me look positively wimpy! Here's our next challenge:

Wanderers and Nomads:

Cheeseburgers were first served in 1934 at Kaolinís Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. After visiting this restaurant and over indulging on cheeseburgers you have to work off those calories. Every team members will play Wii tennis until they win two out of three games in a set of three games.

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

Challenge ends at: 2:01 am Thursday.

I can try this later today! Good Luck! Lee.

I've felt like crap all day. I thought walking would help, so I went twice today, but even though it helped a little, the effect didn't last long. Now I'm headed to bed. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

Betty - sounds like you had a very exhausting day! The team certainly appreciates the extra effort - I know I do, especially since I haven't had the time to get my exercise in today! I did read in the main thread that we are only allowed to post a maximum of 5 hours per team member per day, so I've adjusted our tally so that we follow the rules.

I'm hoping to get a bit of exercise in at some point this evening, if not, then first thing in the morning...sorry to not contribute more, it's been a very hectic week! DD turns 7 tomorrow and DS turns 5 at the end of July, so I've been busy planning two kiddie parties, two family parties and planning my 4 week trip down south at the end of the month...it's a good think I work for my brother and can do some of the planning during my work day! Off to put the kids to bed...and then for some Mommy Time!
