My gosh... it's Saturday. Where has the time gone?

Our last post was Tuesday, so we are way overdue for an update.

One of the reasons that we haven't posted is because things are generally going the way they are supposed to! What's the old saying... "No news is good news"? I think that definitely applies here.

There is still some confusion out there about the challenge three prize resolution. Look for a link in the "prize link" forum, email April at DSM, or contact us at NDISB. Somehow, all of you will get taken care of that chose to participate in challenge three. Did we learn some lessons? Absolutely! Did we find that we have a great community involved with us here in our little race? Without a doubt!

Also, one racer posed a comment about the unfairness of the prizes for the first few challenges, based upon the software that they use. That was a reasonable observation. Not everyone uses Photoshop, or a derivative.

One thing that we would like you to know - Natural Designs in Scrapbooking does not suggest, nor do we coordinate, the prizes for the weekly challenges. While NDISB hosts the race, we leave it to the challenge hosts to determine their own challenge, as well as their prize. Keeping that in mind, not every prize will necessarily be suitable for every racer. We thank you for your understanding and hope that all racers will see some benefit from all of the challenges. One idea that has been raised by several racers is that of taking a prize that they may not be personally able to use, and offering it as a gift to a friend or family member that may be interested in digital scrapbooking, but hasn't started yet. Just think... you might provide someone else's inspiration!

We'll keep you updated over the next few days as to the status of continuing teams, and anything else that seems appropriate. Please continue to enjoy the race, and let us know if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience.

Thank you again for all your hard work in setting up the race.

LOL- I find this funny. I have so many kits and what not now-a-days that I only grab the prizes if I really like them. In the ADSR #2 I don't think I even took half of them. I raced because I wanted to be challenged and get to know my partner and others thru their LOs. So thank you for all the hard work! (But I'd race even if there weren't prizes!)
Hugs to all!
