Wow... what a fun day. Our first ever ***LIVE CONTEST***
plus our first ever contest to draw *105 PLAYERS
* and the best part? It didn't crash! Everything worked as planned and intended! It was a group effort and I have to thank those that helped make it possible. Rich Bieglmeier, host of The Player's Edge
, along with Shawn Drupp, also on the show... both provided commentary inside the contest and also outside the contest via our Facebook
feeds. I'd also like to thank Gary Fitzpatrick
for helping to test the system earlier in the week to make sure it was working properly. I feel like I'm leaving someone out and I apologize if I am, my brain is just a little scrambled right now. It was a long day. But I think that most everyone enjoyed the different format and we won't be implementing it for every contest as it requires too much manpower, but likely once a week or every other week depending on our schedules should be doable. We're also looking into better ways of commentating and communicating with the players and hope to have that ironed out by next weekend's live contest.
Here's your top 15 from today's contest:
