Hi Folks! It's that time of year again, and we need to get this ball rolling! We'd like you to join in the fun! Hopefully we can get all of the Top Ten Folding Teams involved this year.

Pretty much the same rules that have worked so well in the past. We were thinking that 20 million would be a good number to race to this year, but we can change that if the teams decide on something else.

I'm in the process of contacting all of the Top Ten folding teams on EOC, so this year should be very interesting indeed!

Couple of things right from the get-go:

1. I'd like you to choose a team captain! The sooner the better, of course. This person will represent your team in all things, so make the choice wisely!

2. Official-Unofficial Rules for this year:

Here's a couple of tidbits regarding the upcoming Chimp Challenge '09.

First, the rules:

1. First team to accumulate 20,000,000 points from the start time wins.

2. Start time for the contest is Tuesday, May 5th at 12pm, Pacific Daylight Time.

3. The victor gets to claim the lucky jaded monkey as the prize. Tales have been told of untold wealth and fame that comes with this. The victorious team is allowed to display in any honorary fashion the jaded monkey, the losing team is forbidden to display it. The losing team is bestowed the dreaded monkey's paw, which is said to be cursed. People have been known for have very bad luck with this paw!

4. Team captains are as follows:

[H]orde=Xilikon [H]ardApe

EVGA=l337h4l EVGApes

OCN=KniteLife OCNChimpin

TSC! Russia=RU_Hil TSCh!mp

OCAU chestrcoprpot=Monkey_Bollocks

Overclockers torin3=T32Monkeys

MPC bigtoyota479=maximum_monkey

CustomPC saspro=CPChimps

5. In the event of a close race, the Stanford site will be considered the official source for points information.

6. Only team captains are allowed to make changes to rules.

7. The official folding names are TBA

8. Have fun and keep it positive.


I'm going to get in touch with seadave from the overclockers. He's going to hook us up with stats as he did last year. He's working on the coding right now and will pass along a url when he has it up and running. He did a hella job last year with the stats. Many of us even have the final graph proudly stashed away in our files as a reminder of the contest and the outcome. If you have a chance, give him a pat on the back and a bit of thanks for his trouble. When I have that url for the site I'll pass it along to you guys/gals.

Official Thread at MaxPC

The chimp challenge thread over at overclockers, here. (TBA)

Trash Talk!

Stats tracking courtesy of seadave77 at overclockers. (I hope)

I'll try post screenshots from stanford for each team on may 5th, 12pm pacific.

I'll add more to/edit this post as necessary.

I will work tonight on getting information put together and start coordinating our team. I am not naming myself captain, but until someone is selected, I have been asked to coordinate the 2009 Chimp Challenge by OCN Staff.

Looking forward to making the first year OCN participates a winning year!!!

Allrighty! A Team Captain and a team name are the high priority now so I can get that info to SeaDave at the Overclockers. For now, we'll use the Official Rules thread I posted here as the discussion amongst the captains! If it gets too hectic, I'll make other more private arrangements.
