Wow, another year, another massive growth. We broke the 300 barrier last year, and look to have over 375 participants this year. We also surpassed 500 total participants over the course of the contest! You’re making our jobs hard, but that’s a good thing. Here’s a chart of our growth:
- Out of 80 newcomers last year, 49 returned. I’d say that’s a good retention rate!
- It looks like we have over 100 new participants this year! Great growth!
- 17 of last years top 20 returned and 9 of 10 in the top 10. So only 1 took their money and ran, and 11-20 weren’t too discouraged by just missing out.
New year, new participants, so why not highlight some past great performances?
