MASTER NOTES: Is one month too short?

There has been a lot of talk about the one-month leagues I ran in July.

About 500 people signed up and filled 18 leagues. Dozens of different strategies were attempted. Some succeeded, many failed.

One league ended up in a tie for first (and remained tied even accounting for individual categories). Another league winner won by half a point, coming from behind in the final week. Four of the 18 champions ran away with winning margins over 20 points.

It was all just like in regular full-season leagues. Except we could do this six times each season.
