T-minus 7 Days to Lord of the Rungs 2014

Only one more week! In the last competition we had only one female competing for team Santa Barbara; I'd love to get some more women cranking. Andree, at least, will be there again, which will provide inspiration for the future. Elijah spent a whole summer campusing with Lisa Rands in my garage; maybe I can get her to attend sometime. Below is Galina Parfenov, sadly I don't think she will make it. I added a "Bets" sheet to the scoring spreadsheet which will be updated in real-time during the competition; mainly so that everyone can see how much Hans owes me. I hope to see you there.

Update: I seriously cut my left middle finger moving rocks at the Owl Tor last Saturday. The cut runs the entire length of the first digit. It will eliminate most of my training this week, and I might not even be able to compete. On the bright side, I usually overtrain, so hopefully I can compete, yet be more rested than normal.
