Well guys, another year another Folding month!
It is my pleasure to once again, for the third year, to welcome all to the official folding month of 2020! No matter your experience level, hardware reserves, or willingness to financially back your secret mercenaries, you are all welcome!
So far it has to be said that we are a little thin on the ground, with only 152 sign ups, but with a month yet to go before the event commences there is still time for everyone to share the event and to have the numbers rolling in!
It has been an amazon year for folding at home, unfortunately, most of this growth comes on the back of the worldwide COVID19 pandemic that continues to ravage most of the planet to different degrees. In many parts of the world we are now seeing the start of a second wave that must surely be the initial signs of a coming hard winter for many communities and healthcare providers. We had an amazing response with folding events this year, with the COVID19 event being our largest by a significant margin and the summer sprint being a little more active than we have seen for other summers. This is one of the reasons many of you are folding right now, and for that I just want to thank you all, for there seems to be no single community that hasn't been touched by this silent, invisible adversary.
I think it is safe to say that this year has been a drag on all of us to some degree or another, and I do question if the continued uncertainty has lead to some of these low numbers we are seeing.
Can we all make sure to thank our team this year, we have @leadeater in his returning role of data-collection with his scripting wizardry, @marknd59 who has been massively helpful with validating entries, we also have @RollinLower, @j1philli and @ssmmdd hanging around to lend a hand when it's needed and @LandJ who is taking in how the process works to see if he can be of assistance in future events.
As usual just a little PSA, we are a small tight-knit community here, so if someone helps you out don't forget to thank them and give them a reaction, Also always remember we fold as a team first and for individual glory second. So be kind, be humble, be human; here at Folding Month 2020!
With a month to go until the event we are slowly ramping up, building out the data sheet and working on entries as they roll in, we are still happy to receive any donations of prizes that you may have, so don't forget to have a look at your humble bundles and behind the sofas to see if you have any left over keys!
