It has certainly been a turbulent week on Bootleggers, with Families taking a dirt nap, promotions to both our Help Desk and the Elite Guard and updates made to the Assignments feature of the game. To top all this off, we also saw an Independance Day celebration here on Bootleggers to add some welcome fireworks to a fiery July week!

This week marks the debut of a couple of our new writers, with new feature articles now in the works for your enjoyment. We have a couple of writers away this week (and I myself am writing this week's note on a phone while at a conference) so an extra thank you to our team members who have put the work in this week, and to you for bearing with us.

Finally, we have our first reader cash contest on this week, which should tide us over until our Buzz Launch contest is ready to go!

As always, thank you for reading.
