JGTAI Scores Posted

autumninvite

Here ya go, our scores through today. With a mere two weeks remaining in the regular season, the intensity level is heating up. Two teams got automatic invites, and 15 others will make the cut. But there are 3 teams tied for 15th place, another two teams one point back, and three more teams 3-points back. Further down, there are a few regular teams who are primed to make a last minute surge, such as Popesack, Sidecardigans, and Hooter and Chuff. And the points are going to start changing rapidly. There is a new BONUS opportunity on the Facebook page that can earn your team points in a hurry. This week, you can earn double points at Industry on Thursday night. Next week, I’ll offer double points at the quiz at Comcast Market (on Tuesday, November 11th at 5:30 p.m.) Get your A-team ready, it’s game time.

JGTSI Scores After 6 Weeks

Teams in yellow are eligible for a bonus prize, teams in orange would earn an invite, teams in red have received golden tickets, and teams in blue better get their acts together.
