Now that the race is over:
I was locked in mortal combat (until I died) with race steward Mike. Afterward I was able to banter a bit with him. He and I actually "finished" the race as if I were still racing (he beat me by a space). That was fun. My understanding of this league is that communication between racers while racing is prohibited. <<as compared with, say, Diplomacy where it is vital>>
My crash was my bad. I was on a biz trip, didn't spend more than 7 minutes on my plot. Silly me. In hindsight my plot was badly flawed. All on me.
Now I have a 5th and a crash, instead of a 5th and a 3rd. I'll need to up my game to avoid relegation. Watch out, fellas -- I'm bringing my A game to Singapore! :)
Thanks, Mike, for stewarding a well-run race! And thanks for the really good racing.
Warm regards and merry Christmas from NJ,
