The Summer Race is back, 2016 version! Please check the General Race Information page that will be updated with any announcements.

As for now, the Sign-Ups are here.

Basic information:
The race will begin May 1st, 2016 at midnight in you designated geographical area (gotta make it fair!). For three months, you and your team mates (which will be determined via a magic sorting hat) will race against the other teams. Each team will have a designated forum to discuss their progress and log their books. Each team will have a team captain (see below) that will guide you through the race. You will speed, read and fly through novels, memoirs, sci-fi's and more! On August 1st 2016 (at midnight, or July 31st 11:59 p.m.) the race concludes.

If you wish to be captain, please state in your sign ups that you want to be selected for a captains spot. You will be listed in the Captains list, NOT the Racers list. Dint worry, I am still counting you! :)



On your mark.


Get set.






SIGN UP!

There are unlimited opening for the Racers, but not unlimited spots for team captains! If you want to be a captain, it is first come first serve. There are five team captains total, one being me. That means there are four slots left! Hurry and get your spot!

Team Captain
1. Rachel Skye M.4
2. Clair M.15
3. Francesca M.18
4. Meri Kate M.8/23
5.

Meri Kate and Clair,
Captains are not much more work. You are still reading as many books as you can, you will just be the one tallying the totals and keeping the team updated!

If you keep on top if it every week or so, it doesn't get too hard! I promise!

Let me know if you want to be Captains!

There is no average! Anything you can bring to the group will help. Some members who are off for the summer, or are in school, or are quicker readers, will put in more books. Some will put in 5-10. It just depends on how many books you are willing to put in. Definitely work it around your schedule! I hope you join in!
