January 2014 MVP award - a solid start to the new year
The year of 2014 got off to a solid start with more than 60% of the team either holding their month-on-month total or bettering it.
January produced some excellent results and a handsome spread of net gain scores for the team.
Among those setting themselves a good pace for the new year was fisherboy46 from the Algarve in Portugal who recorded a +7 return for the month.
He was joined by both collazos – German from Bogota, Colombia - and oldfossil – Warren from Tennessee in the US - who also gained +7 points for the team.
What made the performance of these latter two even more satisfying was the fact that this big swing moved both players out of an overall minus point score for the team into a positive one. Excellent result and well done.
Just ahead of them was fernandomartins – Fernando from Leiria in Portugal – who finished the month with a net gain score of +8.
However, heading the pack in January were two Fighting Warriors who both managed to finish up with a net gain of +11 for the month.
These were sonofander_pict – John from Recife in Brazil – and hacker_1 – from Michigan in the US – and these two share the first MVP award for 2014.
Well done to all and looking forward to another good year for the team.
