Flat February after strong start to year - MVP report
After a lively start in January, we finished the shortened month of February with a somewhat flatter performance.
We had some good individual performances as usual but overall we had fewer returning a positive net gain for the team compared with most months.
This happens from time to time and often a lull in one month can come before a really strong monthly performance the following period.
Of those having a good month we had meandyou_1 – one of our few female team members from the US – who secured a +7 points net return.
What made this even more satisfying was the fact that it moved her from a -2 overall team score to a +5 position.
We had just one player who bettered this return in the month securing a +8 score for the team.
And who better to lead us in the month than our team veteran, and the first of our number to become a five gold star General of the Warriors team, but kudzu – Bill from Newnan in the US state of Georgia.
Well done to all those who managed to sneak ahead of the game in February, and especially thanks to kudzu who is the MVP award winner for the month.
So here is looking forward to a good, and better, return in March.
So now trying not to leave anyone out, here is the full list of those who returned net positive scores during February:
