  1. Would a 20 month old be considered a team member? We could have a team of 4 plus our 20 month nephew making it 5?

  2. Okay so is the team limit 4 mean no more than four or at least four? Can there be a team of two?

  3. photopolus · ·

    @Art – yes your nephew can most certainly play, and since he sounds a little too young to ride a bike or take a photo, we won’t count him as a ture #5 team member. @David – a team of two works great. Last year we had a team of one. 4 is the limit per team (with exception of little ones)… Thanks guys, can’t wait!

  4. yes, you can have a team of two.
