Hello hello!!!

I think there's someone who usually does the jerseys, but I've forgotten who it is...heh. I'll be #56 if/when we do get jerseys :)

Just so y'all know, I have this REALLY bad habit of getting 4's. :( Just warnin' ya in advance!!

Yanko's offered up the Jersey templates to whomever wants to use them.. he's got Hockey, Soccer and Basketball...

And I'd like to be #85, if no one else has it from last year.

Hi everyone. So, we could be the Screaming Eagles...I say that cause I just saw two eagles flying around over my house screaming back and forth! Anyway, what ever we decide I'll be #18

I want to see an eagle :(

I was thinking the Cornfield Dwellers...heh. I live in two, actually, my college is in several cornfields and my house back home is in a cornfield.

Would that make us the Children of the Corn?
hehehe

As long as the name isn't too corny... I prefer #7 (for my number, not for name, but for score would be OK).
Who is volunteering to captain this ship?
Do we want to set up a flickr group so we can share / discuss entry candidates?
I'm all over the place - from high 3's to a PB of 6.3 (not likely to see that again any time soon, but who knows).

Hybrids? :-)

Screaming Eagles is fun too. :-P There's a pair of eagles that I see frequently on my way to/from work.

I would volunteer for Captain...but, I just started school and don't want to spread myself too thin.

Somebody already did. :-D

I also just saw the thread and thought I would pop in and say Hey! I'm looking forward to this side challenge, and pushing myself to shoot a theme for 8 weeks.

I would rather have soccer jerseys over hockey just not a hockey fan at all. I'll take number 3 if it's available.

I'll look back at the first post to see if there are any other questions asked that weren't answered. Bauerfan71 thanks for stepping up to lead this group.

A full team, and a captain too! Now all we need are great shots and great scores (not to mention that whole name and jersey and team colors and...)! Welcome Captain 21_F.gif bauerfan71! We salute you! (Are you going to throw a chair at 21.gif Dirt_Diver? Wait - sometimes I get confused!)
I asked for Yanko's templates - if someone else wants to do the jersey's, that's fine with me.
I kind-of like the Eagles - there is a nest and mating pair, I understand, near Huntington - not too far a drive for some of us.

This is a pretty open time of year for me, so I'm prett available.. have internet access pretty much 24/7.

That is of course except for my wedding day... but that's my only major plan. And it's a simple wedding so I'll even be shooting that week for the challenge.

dtremain, I see you checked with Yanko about the templates. Very cool... I have no preference as to style or color, but would like to be #85.

And the only names i can come up with right now are so corny i can't stand it myself.

It would be interesting to see how your grades compare to your scores...

I'll start a flickr group in the next day or two.. I'm on my phone now and it's hard to do it on here.

My scores lately have been in the upper 5's so as long as I can keep that up I shouldnt embarass myself too badly.

Here's the link to the flickr group:

DPCO IV Team USA Midwest - Flickr group

And I've edited the first post with some team info...
01/31/2009 07:46:06 PM · #20
You may want to make it a private group....or delete the link here and send it out in a PM or something, so that people from other teams don't steal our secrets :):)

In other news, I HATE BEING SICK and people just don't understand my Silence entry...just got a 3. Blech.
01/31/2009 08:29:10 PM · #21
I'll switch it to private once everyone logs in as a member... easy to log in, but still private too then...

I hear ya on the being sick part... I just got over being a three week cold. It did get me out of having to help someone move though.

Ok, did anyone notice the ringer's on the Olympians team!! Geesh!! It's like a current version of the Ribbon Hogs.

But it's Librodo -- I LOVE his work!! I'm so excited to see more of it throughout the olympics!

I can see both sides, tho, I'm a little bit disappointed. I still think Team Iceland might beat them though.

Everyone has checked in at Flickr..
David is working on the jerseys..

I've been strategically lowering my average so we do better in the "alternate scoring" (... yeah.. that's it...)

I'm excited! How 'bout everyone else?

:-) Yep. 21_F.gif grigrigirl is on their roster also - not that active anymore, but can post some sweet images when she wants to.
