You can do that? Wow, I should have asked you last year when I was doing the Fitness stuff.

I primarily use XboxAPI.com - He has a fairly quick setup process, and allows a handful of pulls per hour for free (like 150 or 250), so, easy enough for something like this competition.

If someone has the know-how to code a leaderboard from an XML feed, I would be happy to host the code. I would offer to do it, but, I know my schedule is not going to allow that. Or, I could give some code examples of using the API to get gamertag and gamerscore (manually or automatically). It isn't any different than using the old 360voice APIs, just learning this one's syntax and structure.
Would people prefer to choose teams if we say 3 per team?

@Porsche, I'll be lucky to score 1k over the three months it's just fun haha

@Musquito would you join if you could pick a team?

If anyone wants to go for the lowest score you'd have to pick me. Smile.

I'm ok with joining if people are ok with the fact I have a pretty busy work schedule and a little girl at home who deserves my attention Smile. But I can always squeeze in a couple of hours of gaming per week and score some GS. Just as long as it's just for fun and laughs.
If anybody needs someone on their team I can help.
I'm down. Should be good for a point or two.

Irish hasn't posted in this thread but if he needs to confirm he can.
I'm good with anyone that is interested...I probably won't score very much (probably ~2000 a month), but you'll also never get any pressure from me.
Right now, we are talking August, September, and October, correct?
