    Hey guys! It's that time again! I hear you guys asking, what time? Challenge time! :)

    In celebration of the 4th of July (for TPU's American members) and the Captain's (Chicken Patty) birthday, we have a midsummer team challenge. I know, I know, summer is hardly the best time for a challenge, so this isn't going to be a drawn-out month-long event. Instead, we're planning for a three-day event--we're thinking 8PM EST on Friday to 8PM EST on Monday.

    Our goal? Best the summer heat and post a three million point day during this time period (multiple three million point days would be even better!). That means it's time to fire up your crunching rigs!

    As far as prizes go, we don't have a lot this go-around. So far, we have:
    - $25 via PayPal (Norton)
    - 3x+ Windows 7 Professional license keys ([Ion])
    - Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (ThE_MaD_ShOt)
    - Serious Sam Complete Pack (Vinska)
    - $25 via PayPal (BarbaricSoul)
    - Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed (dank1983man420)
    - Natural Selection 2 (james888)
    - Earth 2160 (manofthem)
    - Arma3 Alpha Lite (manofthem)
    - $10 via PayPal (manofthem)
    - Far Cry3 Blood Dragon (ChristTheGreat)

    If you want to throw in other prizes (games, etc) please send me a PM (or Norton or Chicken Patty).

    Prize Requirements: You need to crunch during the contest period. There is no points requirement, just that you crunch this weekend!

    Crunch on! :toast: :respect:

    That's the spirit! Thanks for the enthusiasm!

    Great! Depending on how my sales progress, I'll have up to five of the i3 2100s going--maybe the 2700k too :)
    Got it, thanks!

    Going to create the challenge on the WCG site shortly. I won't participate in the drawing this time. I won the H60 last time and I got three rigs going already. I'll leave a spot open to someone else :toast:

    An alien once said, "HE LIVES!!!"

    I'm back and just in time for another challenge. I fired up my other PC (which hasn't been doing much at all lately), so count me in for 2 rigs.

    I finally managed to ship the headset today (I PM'd you a bit ago about it), and I'm terribly sorry for the horrendous delay.

    Glad to see all the members still crunching strong, and thanks to Ion for organizing another event! :respect:

    Since it will be cooler, I shouldn't have an issue participating.

    I'll look and see if I have anything I can add to the prize pool, too.

    ^Welcome back :toast:
