I have been working hard to lower my average and it just did not work! But then if the Knockout Challenge started today I would have had a good chance! :)

Wait!! Your average is in the 5's??? Seriously? Man -- I hope I don't end up going against you!!

Not sure a bribe would work but you never know ;)

As for BYOA I think you need to look at the 'spread' between average and PB's? In that case both yourself and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jcar would beat me as you have bigger 'spreads'. My spread is about 1.2 (5.88 av 7.1PB) yours is 1.7! and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Jcar has about 1.5.

That said, this year my average is 6.7! (just 5 challenges mind).

Yup -- since you came back, you've really been on a roll! Consistently almost a full point above your average. I'm not silly enough to want to go against that!

I haven't entered a challenges in over 2 months. Been so busy. This is the kick start I needed. Entered this Sundays as practice......wait if I do well that will increase my average. Drats!

Can't wait to see the increased number of entries that this side challenge will most definitely create. If I counted correctly there should be a minimum of 60 entries. Plus the ones entering and not in this side challenge.
