Default Congratulation to HWC - Chimp Challenge Champs

Although I would love for this to be premature, it appears to be inevitable. I also have a flight to catch and will be in the air when the CC officially ends. On behalf of TPU, I wish to congratulate HWC for winning the 2011 Chimp Challenge. Your team has managed some phenomenal numbers during this race and demonstrated the true meaning of teamwork and strategy. TPU gave all we had in a attempt to catch you, but it was not enough coming into the last day. I know there have been slight tensions between our teams at times that can only be attributed to the highly competitive natures our teams possess. Every team that folds is a winner in my book and you are now at the top of the list. I look forward to next years challenge and returning the Jade Monkey to it's rightful owner(TPU)

Congrat's Gentlemen!

Buck, I'd fight the 1st place against you guys anytime. We sure did not take you guys for granted, and still your Team managed to surprise us, out-folding (is that a word?) us for some updates.

That was a great fight. I definitely hope to see you guys again next year.

I might be mistaken, but I have always considered those be a friendly competition where we'd simply push each other towards excellence. That gave me a very positive idea of TPU and it allowed to discover another great reference for computer related stuff.

Thanks Buck!
I fold for NCIX but moved my folding to support the long toothed rodents for the CC. (we at NCIX also have a friendly rivalry with the rodents)

IMO this year has been another "win" for the CC and for folding. Not saying that just because HWC will gain the Jade Monkey but more for the participation we've seen from all the teams.
EVGA folding for 120 million points even when it was clear early on that the new format meant the podium was beyond reach = well done EVGA!
Also us "smaller teams" have shown that our support levels are a folding force to be reconed with = Cheer!

So congrats to those at TPU and all who participaed this year as we are all winners = because Folding is the real winner.
Can't wait to fling poo at all these guys again next year.

Thanks Buck Nasty! TPU is kicking up a hell of a fight.

Folks keep folding until the end of the challenge and also finish up any WUs you have downloaded under the Beavers name. We don't want to delete any WUs prematurely as its bad for the project.

Let's push it to the end HwC.

Great run TPU had at the end, causing us not to slow down but to push harder instead

Thanks, its amazing you and OCN broke 100 million points within the contest even though you didn't win the jade monkey. Great showing by all teams participating

Uh, so what does the monkey eat, you know so we don't kill it?
