    17-18 hippo contest here

    Whoever gets the ball rolling has last year's rules and format to copy from and make adjustments, etc.

    Count me in! I'd be willing to keep track of scoring since last year that seemed to be latent but I didn't wanna step on any toes!

    Last year left a bitter taste in a lot of people's mouths. It was like a Charlottesville tiki rally. No one knew who was in charge

    A lot of bitches and not a lot of doers. That's plagued this contest from the beginning.

    The contest was a lot of fun. Maybe it's out for year but hopefully it can come back next year stronger than ever.

    Sorry, we would do it but already have too much to do. This contest has always been run by the members. Nobody is stepping up. A few have said they will but it hasn't happened. Getting lines up and grading has always been a problem. It's a PIA and once you're into week 5 and above it gets real old grading and it's not an easy contest to grade. Plus, the guy running it has to make 20-30-40 people happy? Never gonna happen.

    Everybody likes the contest but nobody wants to make it happen and that's including me. I'd love to have it but I don't want anything to do with running it and grading it.

    Obviously nobody else does either.

    When it comes down to it, it's really my job to make it happen.

    Sorry about that....can't do it. Not this year.

    Go for it, it's all yours. You have last year's contest to use as a guideline.

    Sure hope this is a go. It's a nice contest, and I'm not just saying that because I'm defending champ

    What happened to Watt? He still taking over running it? I'd be very sad to see this die.
