Now is your chance to shine in the Buckscoop Olympic gold sun and show us what you are made of .....

All you need to do is this ... GRAB AN AVATAR, GRAB SOME COURAGE AND MAKE 5 POSTS IN THE FORUM .. ANYWHERE IN THE FORUM WILL DO ... the Buckscoop judges will confer and announce the medal winners Monday 18th Aug morning. So you have all weekend.

And not to forget our already lovely and loyal Buckscoopers .. here is your challenge for gold ...

I want a 4 lined cheer to be written for all the lurkers out there .. showing them encouragement and lighting the way to forum posting fulfillment ... winners once again announced 10am Monday 18th Aug

    I want to see lots of top class lurching lurkers in here soon.... spandex pants and all. Remember most of all though that we fully allow and endorse all forms of performance enhancing drugs and no none of our singers are lip synching... and we categorically deny splicing anything into the live feed.....

  • craftykiwi2008/08/15 12:01:22
    I'm confused! Isn't it Day 5 and event number 5? (We've had 4 so far already.)

    So does this replace the cycling tonight then?

    :) we've definately got a cheerleader thing going on in here.....
  • golfwidow2008/08/15 17:27:06
    Ok. Here is my attempt :o

    Welcome lurkers, come and unite
    Any deal mistakes wont cause a fight.
    This site is easier than going to a shop,
    Buckscoop shopping with a cherry on top!

    The things this site makes me do :whistling:
  • admin2008/08/15 17:37:03
    we only dont fight because we havent yet had the Buckscoop Olympics Super Heavyweight event.....

    I'm pretty positive it was Cycling - looked several times after the last event to see what we were in for the next day, and then today it was different.
    Are you sure someone else (not pointing any fingers here) hasn't changed the sports in the last day? (It said Day 4 originally and that's been changed in the header but not in the blurb underneath so maybe this is the same thing.)
    I thought I was going crazy from competing too much and lack of sport, but reasonably sure they were the other way around yesterday.

    Not that I really care what the order is because it's all really exciting - just want confirmation that I haven't lost my mind!
  • lilpretzel2008/08/15 19:57:54
    Not sure Crafty but I do know that my events weren't Thursday and Friday...

    I think my friend will need to find out http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee236/lilpretzel/po.gif

    I don't think it's a criminal offence! ;) Just one of those nagging things that you can't work out whether you're seeing things or not.

    No changes happening here ... in my little blue book .. kind of like the Buckscoop Bible ... says day five 100m hurdles .... day 6 cycling :)
  • lilpretzel2008/08/15 20:00:06
    Oh the Title I did fix after I saw your post but missed the other.

    ;)
  • nod2008/08/15 20:02:24
    no idea what you are talking about ... he donkey did the title :D
  • craftykiwi2008/08/15 20:04:01

    Definitely must be going mad then! :confused:
    Glad we have the weekend to rest from all the activity. Might take some time out to do some sightseeing around 'Buckscoop Beijing'.
  • lilpretzel2008/08/15 20:04:32
    Shame on the donkey :whistling:

    It was posted as Event 4 not Event 5 :p

    He's just running a day late as usual .... :whistling:
  • lilpretzel2008/08/15 20:15:27
    Crafty can I recommend a nice stroll down do Bucky Pond to feed the ducks ?

    http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/4589/feedducksiu8.gif
  • craftykiwi2008/08/15 20:33:50
    Sounds nice but might not have to go that far. We've had a couple of ducks visiting us the last few weeks and they were there again tonight.
    Not sure where they have come from as there's no pond nearby, we're near a main road and there's a huge construction going on directly across from us, but the kids get all excited. (And also very concerned that someone will run them over.)
  • lilpretzel2008/08/15 20:35:17
    Did somebody say PEKING DUCK

    Slow and steady wins the race (well sometimes). Come on all you lurkers, join in the fun... you know you want to. Go on, it's easy peasy Chinesey. All you have to do is enter your text in the box, if you're shy, to let us know you're there, just say 'Go Aussies Go!' Come on, everyone should get behind the Aussie Olympic team... and you never know, they might just be reading Buckscoop right now... looking for a bargain or two themselves! To all you lurker Olympians out there, 'Go Aussies Go!

    And very very sadly :cry: :cry: :cry: we never did have a lurker jump into the games .. so no medals there I am afraid

  • photographyisart2008/08/18 21:20:45
    not meaning to ruin the mood or anything, but I thought the chants had to be only four lines?
  • lilpretzel2008/08/18 21:27:50
    Is that a protest photo?? :whistling: :D

    I'll pass it on to nod just in case she has missed your reply.
  • yovi2008/08/18 21:28:49
    well, depending on the size of the screen/window, you can make it four lines. :eek: or even 7
  • photographyisart2008/08/18 21:29:19
    no :p

    it just seems a lot more than four lines.
    i know the ... are supposed to separate it but inside that sure is a lot of lines
  • nod2008/08/18 22:18:46
    :D
    technically it is four lines though no?
  • thanratt2008/08/19 01:26:43
    Wow... wow... I'm a medalist!!! Thanks so much. Thanks to my coaches for pushing me so hard and thanks to my family for all their support over the years and for putting up with me throughout my ardous training sessions. Not forgetting the wonderful judges... I never expected this.

    Now then, can someone tell me what this means? Do I really get a bronze medal?
  • thanratt2008/08/19 01:28:16
    Oops... nearly forgot, congratulations to the Gold and Silver Medalists, they are worthy winners.

    Yes... you can stop cheering now.
  • craftykiwi2008/08/19 07:33:09
    nod
    :D
    technically it is four lines though no?


    Wow, controversy even in Buckscoop Olympics! We know it's the real deal now. :D

    It looks like 5 lines, but technically it's 6 lines, if you count all the punctuation.

    I got carried away too with all the excitement and when I re-read Admin's rules ("I want a 4 lined cheer to be written for all the lurkers out there .. ") had to get in and quickly edit mine to prune it back to 4 lines.
  • admin2008/08/19 08:30:27

    Now then, can someone tell me what this means? Do I really get a bronze medal?


    Probably more likely to just get a lollipop and a chest to pin it on around here. :)
