Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 4, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins »

I owe you an RQ for the 10-pointer on R4D2. Since that game is open until tonight, the RQ will come with the R4D5 posting Sunday night/Monday morning.

R4D4 will go up later this afternoon.

Many thanks to the writing and scoring team helping get the game through my illness. The surgery itself has been delayed because of doctors' schedules, but the medication they gave me should get me through until they finish their own Summer Hiatus.

Oh, and we have a new Guest Writer today. And I have it on good authority she's looking forward to reading the Instant Replay thread on this one.

Game on, party people.
