    For the 3rd straight season, cdru takes the 1st place prize for this contest. His margin of victory was 10 days.

    Lucky for the rest of you, he's now ineligible for future "official" contests for a year. ;)

    2nd place winner: Tusk

    Call it what ever you want. Your the one that admitted to bribing Danny's brother. :D

    I was honestly concerned going into the last two legs. I knew Mark had U/J and that the rest of you yahoos didn't, and good cause that U/J likely were going to win but there was also compelling information for other teams. That pre-season bonus really had me worried. Through leg 11, I wasn't even in first, I was in 3rd over a week "behind" the two tied for first. But you'll all see that when Danny gets the final results posted.

    Every year Danny makes it harder and harder to keep my mouth shut at the end of the season. This fall, Danny will wait 3 months before revealing that I won my 4th consecutive season. I may not be able to win the prize, but I can still win the contest.

    I almost picked U and J at the beginning, but over thought the whole thing. Would I have won if I had?

    No. I think you would have been 3 days shy of a tie for first.

    Not bad for a guy that missed an entire week. Ah, what if...

    matters not--I was going to donate the prize back if I won.

    But think of the women I'd have gotten!!

    You've got to be kidding. A three-peat? I think the term "Dynasty" now applies.

    Congrats, cdru!

    Thanks Danny. I had a great time playing.

    5th place, not to bad considering my previous showings and I missed a week since I was sitting on a beach.

    Great contest Danny. I finally finished in the money. :joy: If I hadn't missed the two part week 6 who knows what might have happened?

    Actually, I probably would have screwed it up and been worse off. :D

    Ok, with the prizes now taken care of, my work here is finished.

    And the game administrator looked out over his creation, and saw that it was Good. ;)

    We'll do this again in the fall with the Family version of Amazing Race (4 racers, with kids eligible to play). To celebrate the altered format, I've got some interesting things in mind.

    I'm leaving my options open. If you want to take it over, you are welcome to do so.

    Did he see that scoring took forever? ;)

    Just playing with you, Danny. Excellent job for a difficult task--and all for free.

    Actually the scoring was very quick.

    Correct scoring is what took forever. Kept finding a bunch of errors as I went through. ;)

    So Danny, you gonna run this again for episodes airing on GSN in July? With only one day between legs, and spoilers freely available to all, it would be quite an interesting contest...

    *ducks*
