How do you plan to dominate the competition?</p><p>Christina Martin: I got so excited, I had to announce it to my pod! WHICH Just Dance? I could bring in Just Dance 3, ABBA Dance or the Michael Jackson Experience. Maybe this conversation should be my quote, be-cause it clearly shows what a dance games nerd I am. Oh dear. Im going to sound insane. </p><p>Justin Wieners: Listen, Ive been a student of dance on the streets for decades. Im tired of hiding my passion, and nows my chance to break out. Ill never forgive myself if I dont win this thing. </p><p>What is your official prediction for this years pool tournament?</p><p>Kyle Regier: This years race is up for grabs. I look forward to seeing who decides to sign up. Sometimes its all about the matchups or catching a person on a bad day. I am looking to actually medal this year since I dont think Steve Booth and I played our third-place match. He must have been scared. I hope to see him in a semifinal match this year, assuming I make it that far. I predict a new winner will be crowned this year as PlattForms pool champ. Looking for it to be me. </p><p>Caleb Brattrud: Ellie Quinter is taking home the title, hands down.</p><p>What is your strategy for the ping pong tournament and who do you see as your biggest competitor?</p><p>Andrew Morris: My strategy for the ping pong tournament is to get inside the other players head. I really need to find out what makes them tick, and then turn that against them. This might take me to a dark place, but Im willing to go there for the honor and the glory. As far as my biggest competitor? I look for the SEO team to pro-vide some minor bumps in my road, but nothing I cant pave over on my journey to glory. </p></li><li><p>Behind the Scenes:EDITORIAL BOARDDanielle HendricksonAnthony Pellettiere Erin Donaldson</p><p>DESIGN/LAYOUTAnthony PelletiereSteve Bennaka</p><p>EDITORSteve Bennaka</p><p>PUBLISHERDave Admire /PlattFormAd</p><p>STAY CONNECTED!</p></li></ul>
