With warm temps in the 70s and blue skies and no wind,
it was a perfect weather day for the July Nielson
Challenge.  In fact, we had a record number of participants,
105, that competed in the Challenge, with new runners coming
out of the wazuu.  This is great, as that is what the
Nielson Challenge is all about.

This month's winner was David Huber who was 3:50 under his
handicap.  Congratulations, David!  And we do have a shirt for
you, thus please remind us next time.

We did have some software problems, which prevented us from
announcing the winner at the race, and from posting results
at the race.  I apologize for those problems.  The software
is sized for up to 600 runners in the Challenge database.  There
were 564 runners in the database, and then with 51 new runners
in July, this exceeded the size limits and the software was
corrupting data because of this.  But I've increased the limits
to 1000, so it's not a problem anymore.  I apologize again for
the mess up.

Please come back again next month. It should be a jolly good time.
