    Guy's, I am at a loss for words for the incredible effort that TechPowerUp made for 1st Place in this years Chimp Challenge. There was tremendous communication, awesome strategy, and we even cracked 4 Million PPD. Our members hailed from all over the world and I even noticed a big dog and a few wizards among the bunch. This past week, we showed the entire folding establishment what TPU is made of. I truly appreciate every member of team, whether you have been folding with us for years or just started last week during the CC. I hope our new found friends stay on for a while and experience why we call TPU our home!

    Thank You Gentlemen!

    Yeah. So far the only place I've seen saying tpu came first is forum comments. Doesn't seem that way on the site.

    Definitely fits your title:shadedshu


    What Buck means is our effort towards first place. Yes HWC won it but not comfortably, we were gaining on them and just ran out of time.


    To me passing OCN was already quite an accomplishment.

    There was at least one lady Folding for us. Saw a Cindy on the Facebook screen saying that she Folded for TPU. Cindy, I'm not calling you out, not the goal of this post.

    Doesn't really matter where we finished.Just the effort the Team put in and the way everyone rallied to help out, was amazing to see.

    A big congrats to everyone that lent a hand and hope to see you all next year.
