Save The Date: Revenge of Dish Rag Tag

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.

I’ve got six weeks to invent a dishcloth pattern, knit 10 of them and think up a fundraiser.

Can it be done?

    I’m too excited! I’m going to be in an apartment at school this year so I’ll have a use for dishcloths! I’ll knit starting cloths too, if they’re needed!

    Ha ha, I would offer to knit a few cloths for you, too, but wouldn’t that, like eliminate me from the race since I would have the pattern already? o.O

    Sure you can do it, Emily. We’ll cheer you on from the sidelines.

    Go, Emily! Go, Emily! Go, Emily, Go! (can you tell I was not a cheerleader in school?)

    Yippeee! Now I only hope I have that day off so I can sign up. No internet at work. Keep your fingers crossed.

    I have Mondays off at the moment, but even if I don’t on that day – I’ll be glued to the laptop and other indisposed for a minute or 3. Yay Revenge of the DRT!
