Summer Folding Challenge

Post by infinitevalence » Sun May 21, 2006 4:34 pm

So here is the deal, its time for another folding challenge. So im going to run and start one.

Rules:
To enter post your folding name in this thread before June 1st.
You MUST fold for 1 mth under team 38296, you must turn in no less than 1 work unit (WU) per week.

I will be checking your stats on EOC's page each week to see if you turn anything in, so no cheating :P the spirit is to make this open to anyone who wants to fold even if they have a laptop or older PC. If you can fold more than the minimum as its for science anyway. This contest is open to anyone who is a member on our forums, even new ones so get your friends to sign up for this if they want.

So... what is the prize? If at the end of the challenge July 1st you have mannaged to fold at least 1 WU a week then your name will be eligable for the drawing. I will put all the eligible members names into a hat and draw the winner from that pool.

The Prize:
Aerocool Mastige case

The review can be read here

Sadly i cant afford to ship this outside the US and Canada. So if one of our members from out side the US/Canada wins i will have to figure something
else out :( sorry. This is a review model so it has been used some, but other than that its in perfect condition with all the accessories.

So thats about it, Good luck and good folding, i hope this gets some people interested and maybe brings in some new full time members.

I'm in... even though I don't need a case. :)

Now, to clarify... would 5 WUs by the end of the month work the same as 1 a week? Sometimes the 404 pointers I get take over a week.
