A grandiose air-oud salute and الف مبروك to xbrilliantyears for scoring their first gold in the August 2019 6WC, accompanied by serpent849 who clocked up almost 200 hours in the rhythm and bass section across at least 16 different languages!!

Well done also to our runners-up in both target and total languages categories (knitguy, xgaelicwitch, xbrilliantyears [total hours], and AnyaPop), and to everyone who took part in the challenge despite an initial period of server outage during the first week and a technical hiatus earlier in May. You guys rock! 8-)

Apologies for the absence of wrap-up posts lately. In the meantime, I've kept our table of 6WC winners up-to-date, however I've been otherwise largely absent from the forum since the end of 2019 due to the vagaries of life.

Congratulations to our target language winners from the previous 3 challenges: vhFreya with Japanese (May 2020), BrunUgle with Turkish (Feb 2020), and carlyd734 with German (Nov 2019). You guys all deserve a virtual packet of continental biscuits with ingredients written in 10 languages on the back of the packaging! The runners-up (languagewitch, alaart4, dicentra8, arizakai, and pamelasm) get to quarrel over any wayward crumbs IN THOSE LANGUAGES while wearing masks and keeping social distance.

Well done also to serpent849 (May 2020, Nov 2019) and languagewitch (Feb 2020) for finishing first in the total language hours category, and to alaart4, languagewitch, BrunUgle, dicentra8, xgaelicwitch [are you and languagewitch in the same coven by any chance?] for coming in second and third place. Go check your fridge or cupboard for calorific treats too, you've earned it! :)
