Note that TdP is an individual race and not a TeAm challenge.

That being said, I always try. It will be more interesting this year with multi-threading.

I never thought much of this calendar, other than a reminder of upcoming events. But as I look over the added notes regarding our placement on these events......wow....this might be a trophy of sorts for years to come! :) Proud of my TeAm!
Another episode of TeAm's finest year(s).

I don't think the TeAm is registered for the WCG Christmas race yet. I think @petrusbroder would need to sign us up if there is interest.

Sorry I can't because I am not able to log in. Some how my password is not working, and I can not reach the old mail box. I am working on this ...

******************************************************************************************************************************************************

I am preparing for 2019's calendar, and wanted to save 2018's incredible results, without all the hassle of having to re-sticky a new thread, etc etc.

******************************************************************************************************************************************************

2018 calendar:

Having the full calendar of events in each weekly stats posting creates clutter to an already lengthy post, so I thought I'd give the calendar it's own thread. Perhaps it can be made a Sticky Thread, or it can be bumped to the top once new information is added.

Thanks to [H] Coleslaw/Gilthanis and StefanR5R (sorry for the earlier '5R5' mispelling :D ) for the information! Please feel free to add any information, at any time!
