For all of you who are paying attention...our new season started September 1, 2017. We still had MANY great suggestions for wild card categories from our last survey so decided to pick from that list. So, for the 2018 season (September 1, 2017 - August 31, 2018) our categories will be:
Books with titles that include a persons name.
Books that feature a pirate.
Left-handed team members.
Do you have a lead on a new team? Have you been carefully watching this contest and trying time your entry? If yes, send us an email and we will help you get started.
