Being a competition though, there is some good news and some bad.
The bad being that we have to say goodbye to people.
Or in this particular case, say goodbye for a second time this season. Unfortunately, someone had to be first. But just coming out to take another shot at it, when so many other people sat on the sidelines, is a victory in and of itself.
We are saying goodbye to
rabidnickrefer and shadows_of_pyre
The good news is that we are losing two other competitors, but in a better way. They have the opportunity to leave SCI and enter the main competition (as of Week 10).
(I say "opportunity" because they can say "no thanks", in which case it would go to the next highest total)
Those two are:
black_aspect and xo_kizzy_xo
Congratulations to you both!!
