First of all, Merry Christmas. If you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you accept the sentiments behind that wish!
This Christmas email will serve a few purposes.
The first is to remind you that you have until the end of 2012 to vote for which days you are able to participate in the 2013 Five Boro Amazing Race. The chosen date will be announced on New Years Day 2013.
The second is to answer the most common question I have received: How many people are allowed to be on a team? The number of people you may have on your team is the solution to the equation:
-335.5(x² – 5x) = 2013
Finally, you can see who has already solved the first clue and been officially entered in the race above, as I moved everyone who responded to the “To” line (in the order in which they solved the clue). Once you figure out how many people are allowed on a team, you can examine that list in order to start creating teams. You are welcome to respond to me with the composition of your team, but please don’t reply all with anything that will give away the solutions to either of the two clues, so far!
Also, if you know of emails of other people who want to do this, let me know and I will include them next time. If you don’t want any more emails, let me know and I can make that happen, too!
