It has definitely been a while, since this blog was last updated as far as an article of news is concerned. And in that regard, we have had a couple of seasons pass, since Season 5 started. Let me catch-up on the competition end of what has been going on.
The SurfAholics Alpha team was again right in the thick of the competition, taking no one for granted, and taking every precaution to get to the finals of CTP Teams Season 5. We did make it to the finals of Season 5, and met the CSN (Cashing Surfing Network) team. Both teams fought hard to outscore the other, but we could never get the lead, but the SurfAholics Alpha as usual gave it their heart. Although we came in second for Season 5, I am still amazed at how the SurfAholics Alpha team always comes together to play our best.
Season 6 of CTP Teams was almost a repeat of Season 5. There was a little bit of a rule change going into Season 6, which was limiting the use of TimTech letters to a 24 hour expiration, instead of no expiration. SurfAholics Alpha did see a couple of new team in the early rounds, but like I said earlier, we do not take anything for granted. And as we fought through each round, we honed our technique and strategies a little better with each round. As a team leader, I never set a goal of what we should do as a team, but what happened was incredible that in each round we doubled our score from our previous round. And guess who we should meet up with in the finals? Yes, if you guessed CSN. In that last round, the SurfAholics fought brilliantly. For the finals, we scored five times more than we had from the previous round. Even though we came up short in the finals, we made some magnificent gains that kept CSN hopping.
I am proud to be the leader of the SurfAholics Alpha team. Each season, we get better and better in how we play the game. The rules get changed every now and then, but we have always been able to adapt and learn new strategies to stay in the thick of the competition. And yes, I wish there was not so many rule changes, and that we could keep on playing with the rules we had for whatever season. But even in business, we have to learn what the rules are, and adapt to adapt our strategies to the market. Just as the SurfAholics Alpha has learned to play the game for competition, I have no doubts that we will get better and better in our marketing skills.
I love you, SurfAholics!
Terry L. Allison, Sr.
