    While the Challenge Creation Team puts the finishing touches onto the next challenge, we've been given the green light to go ahead and open up the wagering for this round.

    The CCT has informed me that the teams can bid any amount, up to $100

    Only $100? hmm... well, they know what they are talking about, so... any amount, up to $100 guys...

    Start thinking it over now... I'll announce when to have it finalized as they finish up the challenge

    I say the CCT is keeping the pot low in order for their embezzling operation to continue.

    Just so you all know. Round 6 will begin on Saturday... the main reason... I'm going away Wednesday - Friday. So, you guys have until Friday to get your wagers in... so that's plenty of time to think and debate on what your wagers should be :evil:

    Well guys... I'm returning later than I expected...

    So, here's the deal... I know many of you have obligations to handle on Sunday that keep you away for most of the day. With that being said, would you rather I wait until Monday to start the next challenge, or just go forward with it? Speak now!
