Our Facebook group is
Come say hi, vote for a team name, and if someone would like to be captain feel free to volunteer. But as I clearly have plenty of time on my hands, I'm ok with being captain as long as you all don't mind someone incapable when it comes to spreadsheets.
I sent a request on FB.
Merry christmas team!

So this is kind of funny, I have no idea where to post. We have a thread at that "other" place, we have a thread here, and we have a FB group. Eeeeeny meeeeny meiny mo... to which chat thread do we go? Catch a tiger by the tail, if we post in the wrong one, we're gonna fail.
I think almost everyone has joined the FB group that has checked in at any of the other places. Personally, I am not real big on RW these days - I pretty much only head over there for miles game related stuff. I'll start a team thread there the first few weeks for the benefit of anyone who may have missed out but my intention would be that our communication be through FB. I've got to sift through the members to start matching up screen names to faces and figure out who might be missing. I fear, though, given that I have started posts EVERYWHERE about this that those who have not checked in are among the RW casualties.
That's certainly possible, hasn't even thought Of that. The first few weeks will share all that out I think.
Only one other team has more members on their FB group than ours so hopefully if there is attrition, it will be evenly distributed. We have 21 out of 26 members in the FB group at the moment.
So how does one go about getting on a team? I take this is all about the miles and not how fast or slow you do them?
Do I have to pledge or something?
2014 Goals: (Yeah I suck)
BCR, yes, this game is not about speed, but just about setting a mileage goal, and then reporting your data each week. The game was announced a few weeks ago, and teams were assigned last week. I think the game is closed right now.
Is there any way to open it up for a few days? It would be great if this wasn't just a rwol game.
