BUCKSCOOP OLYMPICS: GAME STARTS IN 15 MINUTES ... PRIZES AND MEDALS UP FOR GRABS

Posted By: nod, posted 2008/08/18 17:59
***
As we did not get enough teams to register for the Events 7, 8 and 9 we have decided to combine all into one event
THURSDAY 21ST AUGUST 9PM EST

Ok, so here we are in the second week of the Buckscoop games, and our team events rapidly approach.
Our team events will take place Tuesday night, Wednesday night and Thursday night of this week. ALL events will take place at 9PM EST


Now to the important stuff - what is a team?

**
EACH BUCKSCOOP 'TEAM' MUST CONSIST OF TWO BUCKSCOOPERS. THEY CAN BE EXISTING MEMBERS OR BRAND NEW.

    And of course the prize pool is doubled :)
  • craftykiwi2008/08/18 18:18:17
    Thanks Nod - Golfy and I have teamed up and are raring to go.
  • photographyisart2008/08/18 21:00:01
    anyone want to join my team :)
  • nod2008/08/19 16:21:25
    Well sadly we are not seeing much a response to our team events .. if we don't have more participants then the team events will be scrapped and all rolled into one comp Thursday night?

    What is your preference?
  • MamaK2008/08/19 16:37:02
    I'd prefer a singles event as I couldn't guarentee I'd be here on time and could let down my team mate
  • nod2008/08/19 16:45:29
    :D
    Well I of course would need to make it 3 times harder to make up for 3 events :twisted:
  • craftykiwi2008/08/19 17:46:06
    Golfy and I are keen to compete in the teams events so come on people - should be fun.
  • nod2008/08/19 18:05:01
    Sorry Craftykiwi but I have decided to combine all 3 team event into the one event :(

    EVENTS 7, 8 AND 9 WILL NOW BE COMBINED INTO ONE EVENT ... THURSDAY 21ST AUGUST 9PM EST
  • photographyisart2008/08/19 19:08:17
    thats a shame.
    are the events on thurs team events or single??
  • golfwidow2008/08/19 20:30:15
    :( I suppose this means i better spend some time with hubby then, LOL.
    Will make sure im all rested for Thursday :)
  • nod2008/08/19 20:48:12
    The event on Thursday will be a single event

    Sorry guys :)
  • lisss2008/08/19 21:08:38
    Better for me because like the others I cant garuntee I'll be here on time... will try and make Thurs night :)
  • thanratt2008/08/19 23:36:44
    I would have liked to have joined in too but like the others I can't guarentee that I would be here on time (work meeting) and I would hate to let a team mate down.
  • queenshrew2008/08/20 00:01:18
    Yeah, single is good.
    I can't guarantee I'll be online right on time too, as I've been busy and will only get busier.
    Would hate to let someone else down.
    I guess another way to do it is to organise teams on the night from all the people who are on. It'll be fun too being thrown into the deep end with someone else (whom you don't know or do know.. before the event!) :D
  • craftykiwi2008/08/20 07:37:48
    nod
    Sorry Craftykiwi but I have decided to combine all 3 team event into the one event :(


    No problems - can get a few early nights in ahead of Thursday now.
    Disappointed cos I was keen to see how a teams event would work (ie would you be PMing one of us and that person had to work something out and PM our team member to complete the challenge, or whatever), but also more disappointed for you Nod & Lilpretzel with all the work you put in ahead of time for these comps.

    I think I follow all that.
  • photographyisart2008/08/21 20:53:40

    A few things :

    1. You MUST PM both the number from the picture and the CORRECT answers to ALL questions
    2. You only have ONE shot at the quiz quetions ... that you can ONLY PM ME ONCE ... and only once
    3. The letters for the number are added to the picture and are not a part of the picure

  • bt342008/08/21 21:32:08
    Yay!

    Firstly, I would like to thank my coach. He always believed in me when others didn't. This is for you coach. Also would like to thank my personal trainer/dietician for her great advice: "feeding and exercising the mind is equally important has the body", thanks big Sal.:flowers:

    Lastly, I would like to thank nod and lilpretzel for putting on a great show, this has been the best Olympics. Hope to be back in 4 years and defend my title.:p
