I propose to play santa this xmas , joking of course ,seriously though the amount of good punters on here warrants a little gesture of kindness ..I would be interested in putting up a prize over the holiday period , the drawback is the winner will have to give their winnings to a charity of his choice ,it would be nice to bring a little kindness to someone who we feel needs it more than ourselves ..I am very busy like a lot of others at this time of year and wouldn't have a lot of time to do the maths ..So would be much obliged if someone took up the mantle and gathered all the relevant info and put it into line ..It'll be a short comp , just leopardstown and Limerick , ten points for a winner  with five points for 2nd  and two for third ...prize will be 100e  to the winner and 50e for the 2nd ..If anyone is interested in running this please let me know asap ..thanks ..

An absolutely hilarious thread started, surprise surprise, by the forum idiot wonky. He "starts" it, but wants someone else to continue it!!! He "wouldn't have a lot of time to do the maths". More like he can't DO the maths! Anyway, he did state the comp was to be run over Leopardstown and Limerick. Fair enough. Then some fool gets on putting up today's selections!!!!! Unbelievable! Even worse, one of wonky's reliables thinks Leopardstown and Limerick are run over 5 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly, where do you get them from? Listen up wonks, this comp hasn't even got outta first gear! I will donate 100 euro to any charity to stop this charade. Over to you wonky...............

Over 12 years on here and his sole contributions are a few spelling corrections and a slavish unhealthy interest in Workrider.

".....GLEN needs your support to ensure that we have fully Constitutional equality through access to civil marriage; to ensure that young LGBT people are safe, supported and affirmed in schools; to ensure that we can go to work safe in the knowledge that we can be open and fully respected and included; to ensure that we can safely walk the streets hand in hand.....

Details of how to donate can be fund on glen.ie.

Wonky will be devastated to see his comp being sabotaged. He quite clearly stated it was to be a short comp, just Leopardstown and Limerick. Fair enough. Then wildman comes in trying to steal wonky's thunder by petulantly trying to add in Punchestown to make it 5 days. Tramore were due to race also on the 31st but that was changed. Again fair enough. Both Leopardstown and Limerick are, and have been for as long as I can remember, 4 day festivals. How can you possibly try to tag on Punchestown, when wonky quite clearly said just the 4 days?
