May 2013 MVP report
May proved to be a busy month and not least for the captaincy team.
I am hoping that you will have all noticed a good steady flow – if not a flood – of games coming your way during the past month. We have been working hard to ensure that all players are kept topped up with games in accordance with each player’s preference and limit. This requires relentless effort.
The result has been a substantial increase in the overall number of active games in play across the team. I would particularly like to thank the unsung heroes of the team – my co-Captains earlkarjohn, sherbert and bobbob78 – for their help and support in setting up these matches for you all. I couldn’t do it alone.
It is a little like running around a hamster wheel keeping these levels up as players are finishing games all the time. However, maintaining a good level of active games is one of the keys to ensuring we keep up our forward momentum.
As for the specifics of May, it was a decent month overall. One of the key features was the rapid progress of one of our newest members degrotebozewolf (no relation ☺) – Harold from the Netherlands. I predicted last month that we should see some good early progress as he entered GK with a rating far below his natural level. I expect this to continue for the next month or two.
It was also a good month for quid_pro_quo – Caroline from the UK – who delivered an impressive plus eight points for the team in the month. Matching this performance was one of our longer serving team mates id+oldfossil – Warren from Tennessee in the deep south of the US.
Just ahead of them was gibsonscot – Scott from Alberta, Canada – who sneaked into double figures with a cracking plus 10 points for the team.
However, the highest return was indeed, as predicted, delivered by that other wolf degotebozewolf who secured 13 net gain points for the team. For this he is awarded the MVP award for May.
Well done to him and to all those who kept their noses in front in the month.
