We started a new contest at our TOPS meeting this week. It came from the Aug/Sept issue of TOPS News. Each member who wants to participate writes their name on a sticker that is put on a ball. We are using a beach ball since it's still summer. The rules are very simple and straight forward. The idea is to stay on the ball. If you gain at your next weigh-in, or have an unexcused absence, your sticker is removed from the ball. If you lose at your next weigh-in, your sticker stays on the ball. The contest goes on until there is only one name left on the ball, the winner. We added a little something extra to make it more competitive. Each participant paid a dollar entry fee so the winner gets the pot. Sweet.
