We've hit the end of the first part of the Prognostikeggers season.
Congratulations go out to icecreamman, who held his lead and finished up the first part in first place. He took the lead about halfway through the first part of the season and then held on, building his lead before solidifying it at the start of week 8. Finishing in second place was Dulzy, who shot ahead of aaronetc to take second place. After Dulzy, aaronetc had a rough end to the first part of the season but finished in third place. MichaelE1 was close behind but finished in fourth place, and had a ten point gap above fifth place texwestern.
To finish up week 8, the notorious r.d.m. put together a 19-point series to shoot into the lead for the week. It was his first weekly win this year, finishing just a few points ahead of Dulzy for the week. Taking third for the week was jcollins205, who put a 15-point series together to finish the week.
That finishes up the first part of the Prognostikeggers season. Thank you to everyone who took part in the competition for the first eight weeks and keeping this going strong. Now, the second part begins tomorrow. The overall standings will be reset, giving everyone a chance to start fresh. In addition to the new start, we will be making a major addition to the game. You won't want to miss this. Come back tomorrow to check it all out.
