Greetings, as the horse racing comps are thin on the ground (probably do an AW one in February or even one of Centipede's 'lay' comps next month) but to fill the void I'm going to run a TGC Winter Olympics Competition 2019/20. The format is provisional at the moment, and I will do my best to provide information to help on the various events, especially the winter ones, unless we have some winter sports enthusiasts amongst us. Events are less frequent in the winter, plus we have Xmas so events will be more spread out. 1. 7th DEC - BOXING - Ruiz vs Joshua II, Eubank Jnr vs Korobov, J. Charlo vs D. Hogan 2. 12th DEC to 1st JAN - PDC WORLD DARTS CHAMPIONSHIPS 3. 21st DEC - DOWNHILL SKIING (Mens & Womens) 4. 30th DEC - 6th JAN - SKI JUMPING (4 Hills - Mens) 5. 12th - 19th JAN - MASTERS SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIPS 6. JAN 20th - 2nd FEB - AUSTRALIAN OPEN TENNIS (Mens & Womens) 7. JAN 25th - LUGE World Cup Event Siguida, Latvia 8. FEB 2nd 2020 - AMERICAN FOOTBALL SUPERBOWL Any thoughts are welcome. I will open and close the 2 skiing comps that happen around Xmas together, complete with write ups, so there is a nice break over the festive period. I hope there is something there for everyone. There is a Formula E race on the 18th Jan, if you wanted that instead of the tennis. But thought the conclusion of the Tennis and Superbowl on the same day would keep things wide open till the end?? I may also use the Darts results and combine them with a BDO Darts comp to find our top Arrowsmith Tipster for a different trophy. I will do the scoring details once the events are finalised. So if your interested in playing, a simple I'M IN or variation of will suffice for entry, and combined with any winter sporting related funny will get extra kudos. Be good to see some different competitors. CHEERS Crunchie
WELCOME EVERYONE!.....the MAGNIFICENT 7 OF SUMMER SPORTS it is. The scoring has a slight bias towards the big 3 events of the summer. Wimbledon, Tour de France and The Open as they are the main events, plus, they are also the hardest to predict so slightly more points could potentially be won. Jokester will again keep score, but I urge everyone to jot down their own as I don't want no comebacks on her at the end. It's not fair, as it is a very difficult job to keep on top of everything. Mistakes could be made. I will post the results after each event as before, so you know who has scored what. Again, I may tweak one or two things closer to the event. But I would like to think I have given those with less knowledge on some sports a chance to do well with some guessing games thrown in. Please no posting 5 event predictions at a time, just those coming up. All I need for now, is a simple I'm in or variant of, so Jokester has plenty of time to wield her magic upon her spreadsheets. First event starts Monday July 1st and ends on Sunday 28th July.
