Am so thankful to all my friends and SNC participants who have been continuously supporting me right from the beginning and have made this event a great success. We have made really good friends here and are enjoying every moment together virtually. 

Minutes Of SNC- 1 

November month is the second month for SNC, the first month challenge was conducted during October and had been completed successfully, thanks to the October month's host and participants. The hosts were Divya Prakash and Shruti and we started of the event on OCtober 1, 2012. Divya Prakash posed mysore pak for the Northern team to accomplish, whereas Shruti had posed Bhel puri for us Southern team members. Interesting and delicious challenges they were. The Northern team had won the challenge and beat Southern team with a difference of 25 points. Many thanks to all who took up the challenge enthusiastically and to others who had been a pillar of support. I posted the round up for October month on 5th of November.  

The Northern team excelled the October month's challenge and won the trophy.Check it out here!!

Score Sheet

Please keep in mind that the point system here is only for encouraging and fun, it does not mean one team is superior or inferior to the other!! 

I have calculated the points based on the judgement and data given by the November month's hosts, 
Pallavi and Yashodha.

Also only the links from the linky tool will help me calculate the points perfectly. 
This time I have considered the posts that were not linked, next time please do it or else it will be hard for me to post the round up. And in case I don't consider your link please don't blame me!! It will be impossible for me to check all the spaces individually to search for your entries, please understand and do help me out!!

Basic Score Sheet

November month's score sheet

Score Sheet Explanation

The hosts of this month have decided the winners for each category and based on their decision I have calculated the points. 
Thanks Pallavi and Yashodha you have really done a great job!!
  1. Most Quickest Entry Goes to Priya. The one who completes the challenge and links first among all the entries wins 25 points; This time Priya Suresh (Priya's Versatile Recipes) from the southern team completed her challenge first and also linked it first so she has won her team 25 points. The second was Meena from Random Ramblings but she does not get any points only the first linked entry earns points, but still good effort Meenu.
  2. Well Presented Recipe Goes To PJ from Southern team & Shruti (Shruti's Rasoi). I loved all the presentation of all participants, each one had presented the recipe in a unique way and according to me everyone deserves this award. One well presented recipe from each team will be selected and awarded 15 points each. Preference will be given to the picture and presentation. Divya Prakash also had presented well, but since she had not linked her recipe the award goes to PJ. 
  3. Well Explained - Goes To Sherin (Kuk's Kitchen) from Southern team & Meena (Random Ramblings) from Northern team.  The team with the perfect explanation about SNC and the recipe will get the well explained post award. This time also there was a competition among Viji, Meena, Manjula, and Divya Prakash. All had explained the SNC well but, hosts decided Sherin and Meena as the best, so they each win 15 points for their team. Divya Prakash has missed this too because she hasn't linked.  
  4. Most Commented - Goes To Priya Suresh again. Last time also she got this award, again she is getting it for 60 comments she has got for her gulab jamuns. The recipe with the most number of  comments among all the entries (includes both south and north) will win 15 points for the team. She wins 15 points for her team. Priya Suresh is on a hat trick now!!
  5. Most Number Of Participants - Still there is an imbalance between both the team, so I had to calculate the percentage the participants, to decide the winning team. This time many members from Southern team had participated but still Northern team beat them, they lead the Southern team this time too. 57 % of the Northern team members have completed their challenge, whilst only 55% of the Southern team members have participated. (Southern team - 18 participated out of 33; Northern team - 8 participated out of 14) 
  6. Special Award - Goes To Meena from Northern team (Random Ramblings). The one who excels in the challenge by performing well in any way will be awarded a special award according to that the individual who earns this credit or badge will earn an extra 10 points for her team. This time Meenu her team another 10 points. For the award she has won check at the bottom of the post. 
The total score of Northern team is 60 and that of Southern team is 70. 
It was such a close call!! 
But Congrats Northern team for giving a tough competition!!

Its Time To Shower Awards!!!

Meena Bhatia !!!! 
From the Northern team!!

There was a tough competition between Priya Suresh and Meena Bhatia but Meena has got the award for her active participation in all activities of SNC, be it welcoming the new member or helping out anyone she performed well. So she gets this award!!

Special Applauds

Special applauds to Sherin, Divya Prakash, Archana, for their high spirits, thought their first attempt failed they tried again and succeeded.

Also applauds to Shruti for completing both the challenge recipes.
