Last week, the BINGO coordinators along with a few BCGA directors talked about the possibility of a BINGO speed round. Everyone liked the idea.

The next game will be for the die hard gecoachers and addicted BINGO players. Game 8 will be based on skill rather than luck.

There will be only 25 tasks to ensure that everyone has to do exactly the same things. All squares will be opened at the same time and the first person to complete a full BINGO card will win.

This should be a short but very exciting game. It will be interesting to see who has the stamina to complete all the tasks before anyone else.

So a new torment! By my calculation, this will start about the same time as my schedule consists of 11 or 12 days of consecutive 18 hour workdays. But hey - sleep is really overrated.

sounds like fun, any indication when it might be planned for so we can start thinking about ensuring we're not working that day?

We can't set a date since we don't know when the current game will be over. It is just the next game in line. The speed round will begin shortly after the current game is over. That's the best estimate I can give you. Sorry. If it's any consolation, everyone is in the same boat.

So far I've had 3 draws that refer to attributes. I'm noticing how many caches out there have no attributes chosen.

*grumble*

OK, the speed round will commence in a few days. I'll be talking with the other Bingo administrators to ask just how much torture I am allowed to put everyone through.

Although there will be a few hard tasks in the bunch, I'll stay away from the difficulty/terrain 5's for a while. **teehee**

How wonderful. Just before school starts up again. This Bingo game is going to rock.

I have been feeling SO sorry for my poor, poor friend Cuddlefish all summer - she has been forced to cache almost every day, the monotony only broken up with mega events, occasional holidays, and day trips with her family.

I have until 8:00 AM Tuesday to finish the Speed Round BINGO!

Thanks for that Katcogo. <sob> Your words mean so much to me.

It has been hard filling the void. Almost 400 caches in the last two months - you have no idea of the anguish the Summer has brought me. However, I am deeply touched by the care you have shown which soothes my tortured soul.

The worst thing is that going back to work will only stop the pain for 10 months. Come next July, it will start all over again.

And yet. I never won Bingo. <sob>

not funny. Are you going to release the cards or just torture us?

At least it's not 0300!!

It just may be. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. 3AM??? Maybe. 7PM??? More of a probability.

Actually, it all depends on the mood of the administrators. I say torture you all but the others are so much more lenient. They may even try to ease the card for all the babies.

So you thought it would be an easy speed round? Think again. **snarfle**
