I always like to help but thought that keeping track of everything for the Pentathalon was a bit much for my life right now. Then Spec DMs me so I said "Alright, I'll help out in the marathon." A week later, and I had contributed to 3-4 of the events and had a great time doing so. Thank you Spec and everyone else who organized and pitched in. I can't wait for next year. CHEERS!

 

Fold on.

Just as a reminder, LTT has participated 4 times so far. 

 

2018 - 17th

 

2019 - 10th

 

2020 - 6th

 

2021 - 5th

 

Can't say we've got anything to be unhappy with for our first few times competing.

Hey, Top 5 is awesome! Great job everyone, and thank you for your contributions!

This particular line stuck out to me from the Final Report:
 

Quote

After starting difficulties, the team made headway, and the final Javelin Throw showed the tactical qualities of the team too.


Thank you, @GOTSpectrum, for reaching out to people individually and pulling them into the event. Personally, I wouldn't have even known it was running if I hadn't received that DM from you, and I suspect it played a large part in getting past those "starting difficulties". Well, that and @leadeater's army of servers handling the first few javelin tosses.

I had a lot of fun with this event - the small team size made strategizing important, and it genuinely felt like every individual participating was able to make an impact due to the number of ongoing/overlapping disciplines. It's a very different flavor to the Folding events, and I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next one!

Awesome to hear that you enjoyed yourself. As much as I like the folding events as everyone tries to out-do one another it is nice for us to come together as a team once a year for the BOINC Pentathlon and show just how supportive we can be of one another.

I like the team aspect as well. I used to run track/cross-country in high school and as much as a PR (personal record) was great to have, contributing to the team in order to get a meet win was even better. There was always strategizing going on with our VERY small teams in order to maximize our team points. Team wins are awesome and 5th place in the Pentathlon with our relatively small group is most definitely a win. Great job, everyone!
