Sign-ups for Revenge of Dish Rag Tag will open on Monday, August 16, 2010 at 9am central time. They will close when participant capacity is reached or at 9am on Sunday, August 22, 2010. Whichever comes sooner.
The race will begin on Friday, September 3, 2010 when I mail the starting boxes. That’s Labor Day weekend, so boxes should arrive at Team Captain doors the following Tuesday.
Specific information for this year’s race will be announced immediately prior to the opening of sign-ups. But I will address the most pressing questions now:
How many people can play this year?
It looks like the race will be limited to 100 participants (10 teams of 10) and there will be a sign-up fee of $1 to cover postage for prizes and starting boxes. If the 100 slots fill in 24 hours, I will consider expanding to 120 participants (10 teams of 12).
What size box?!
We’ll stick with the USPS Priority Mail Small Flat Rate as the Official DRT Box. Postage rates went up again this year so the Flat Rate boxes for $4.85 (online rate +free tracking) is the most affordable and predictable rate available. Affordable being the key – I want this to stay a $10 swap.
