The new season starts here guys ......
Undecided is going to run the Team naps comp again
I think he deserves our full support otherwise who knows what he might get upto

As defending champions it its only fair we defend it
plus try to give all those Ante Post double punters a run for their money 
Although there may well be some who are looking to lay off & Cash In if they havent already done so

Well we just dropped off the pace towards the end there guys
If we had our results in reverse we would have finished on a high
I think it was another good comp, we pulled out some great efforts
Remember with 3 rounds to go we were still in with a chance of winning
Frustration is easy to kick in at this game but you know its swings and roundabouts game
The once a week aspect only compounds that but we all know about odds
we all gave it a go despite our personal circumstances

ALL your efforts were very much appreciated
Played in the right spirit we saw it as a Bit of Fun but with Team work

I hope you enjoyed it ... I did

Just thinking how we could keep the thread alive. Stewpot started with 3 on Saturday, then me Sunday, how about we have a team "3 a day" running topic, where one team player selects three at a meeting of their choice? One point on each selection? After Sunday we are +4 pts, anyone up for it today? As I see it all of us could go on same day, or spread over the week. One play of three selections on one day per week? Week runs Saturday to Friday.

Cheers stewpot and dessie

Regarding posting selections through the summer I will be happy to do that although on poor days like today I simply don’t even make any effort to look ,7 days a week for me finished some time ago,

I expect Thursday/Friday will be good days with plenty meetings and I think some nice smaller track Irish?

Hope everyone has a go but its only to keep our eyes in (or get our eyes in which ever is the case Blush )

Certainly echo your thoughts jimnast certainly only a 'fun' part timer these days
Yes Dessie an occasional drop in centre fits the bill, post when the urge is there suits me fine
I was thinking of a new Topic but leave the posts on here for now

Besides I would have to think of a suitable name

EWTs Three for the Weekend or other endless threesomes come to mind

EWTs TriUmphs    (or Trioomphs)
EWTs TriCasting (just for Dessie)
EWTs Tricks
EWTs Triers
EWTs Trifles
EWTs Triflings  (endless descriptions apply)
EWTs Triages    (priority/damage assessment area, ID classification which ones are life savers, urgent not to be missed or just expectant)
EWTs Triathlon (Yes it may well be a long hall but no hard fast starts or 'transitions')
EWTs Trips

Some may well be more appropriate than others
if you see the opportunity or get in the zone feel free to post more or less often 
Doesnt have to be three but gives you a sporting chance, more or less all OK by me

I am going to Tri and have a lie down nowBlush
