THE GREAT TEAM TORTOISE RACE OF 2024



Image


Welcome one and all to the annual Great Team Tortoise Race! You know it, you love it, and now this classic event is back and better than ever. Everyone is encouraged to review every day this June to earn special badges!

How do I participate?



You must write one review every day of June, starting June 1 in order to participate. YWS automatically keeps track of who is still competing in Team Tortoise and who has completed their daily reviews on the Team Tortoise Leaderboards. Sometimes, there is a bit of flexibility when it comes to time zones, but make sure you write one review a day so you aren't disqualified! You can also share your progress and motivation for others in the competition with the hashtag #TeamTortoise!

This thread will also feature encouragement, tips, and other Team Tortoise Legacy information for our competitors. We'll also keep track of who's in the running for posterity!

So, do you think you have what it takes to win the Great Team Tortoise Race? Join us this June and see if you're correct!

Good luck everyone!



**This summer is also going to feature a special Summer-Long Review event, so be watching the people tab for more Reviewing Challenges this summer!**

Keep it up tortoises!



Keep it up reviewing tortoises! You are each doing so wonderfully and making a difference with each review - thank you for your hard work! You're more than a third of the way done, and are nearing the half-way mark!! You've got this. One step at a time. One review, and then another. One day, and then another. Good luck!

PS - last year we broke the YWS record for most tortoises winning team tortoise with nine winners could we break that record again this year? We still have 15 tortoises racing to the finish line!
you should know i am a time traveler &

More than Half-way There!



Hey have you heard the news? YOU are awesome! Also these folks are more than half way to the finish-line! Woohoo! Keep up the amazing work and bring us even closer to breaking the record for most tortoises in a single month. Thank you all for your reviewing contributions... Also has anyone else heard a honking sound in the distance... I think we are nearing the 2nd lost baby goose!
