    My question was do lobsters swim fast?? :eek: Google told me they swim fast for short distances and they tend to swim backwards. So backstroke only for you :)

    :D Don't think we will need one

    Another fun comp on the way - thanks Nod. May be a good distraction when we are inundated with all those daily sporting repeats.

    Tried to give you some Rep for once again going out of your way to make this a great forum but it won't let me. Looks like we're all going to end up with the same number of rep at this rate which sort of defeats the whole idea, doesn't it?
    I don't give it out unless it's warranted but if I see a good deal it'd be nice to reward the poster but if I've already given some at another time it says I can't.

    May help when we are inundated with all those repeats.

    Are you missing out and need some? ;)

    :D ... mmmm no .. don't think so BUT .. there may be a teams event so start gathering your Buckscooper friends :whistling:


    Have gathered one team member from here but what do we do next? How many team members do we need and do we let you know who we're playing with (in sporting terms)?
    And do we need to confer with our team member to pick which sport we're competing in or do we each pick a different sport?
  • queenshrew2008/08/08 23:15:22
    Me me!
    I'll go in for the gymnastics! They look sooo graceful and skilful! I wish I can be like them..oops maybe I should lie and say I'm a pro at gymnastics :p :p

    So we just wait until then before picking our event (sport), and team event??
    And I assume I have to confirm with my team member to pick which team event??
  • voteoften2008/08/09 10:52:31
    Can electioneering be a sport? We have just had the earliest election in more than a century called here in WA. The Labor Premier called it the day after a credible leader was elected by the Opposition. I'm gonna be busy the next 4 weeks with it and it is a sport, sortof.
  • winniblu2008/08/09 13:05:36

  • nod2008/08/09 17:23:42
    :D ... you guys dont need to pick a sport. There will be lots to chose from and the team events will take place in the second week to give you all enough time to work out what is going on :)

    I do have to say that synchronized swimming is not classified and 'Buckscoop Olympic Sport' :D
  • kezmat2008/08/09 22:14:58

    The sport you 'pick' has nothing to do with the actual games so you can keep your speciality of Synchronised Swimming :)
