The rules

Every Sunday I'll post a new play. Email your answer to

Dave Kraft at dkraft_sr@yahoo.com or

by NOON Friday. We'll send you an email confirming your submission (so you know we received it) and post the answer and new POTW on Sunday. We'll tally up the winners and post them so you can track your progress.

New for 2003 is the Bonus!

We have a new twist this year. If you miss the main POTW, you can still pick up a half point by answering the Bonus. You have to answer the Bonus in the same time period as the main POTW. Also, you only get the half point if you miss the POTW.

Who can play?

Anyone! You don't have to be an AOS member. It just helps.

But if you can't answer the questions, maybe you should join us! Monday nights, 7pm at Hoffman Estates High School.
