    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..... http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y137/socrates_chan/LurkerDay_YouCanComeOutNow.jpg [SIZE=5]WELCOME TO EVENT FOUR IN THE BUCKSCOOP OLYMPICS[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]Today we will be racing the 100m hurdles... not an easy event to organise and of course it needed to be something different .... sssooooooooo... here we are ...

  • craftykiwi
    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?
  • photographyisart

    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!
  • lilpretzel
    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 :D

    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 :)
  • lilpretzel
    Oh the Title I did fix after I saw your post but missed the other. ;)
  • nod
    no idea what you are talking about ... he donkey did the title :D

    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'.

    Shame on the donkey :whistling: It was posted as Event 4 not Event 5 :p

    Crafty can I recommend a nice stroll down do Bucky Pond to feed the ducks ? http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/4589/feedducksiu8.gif
  • craftykiwi
    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.)

    Did somebody say PEKING DUCK :cool:

    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 [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="5"] Congrats all and good luck for the cycling [/SIZE][/FONT]
  • photographyisart
    not meaning to ruin the mood or anything, but I thought the chants had to be only four lines?
  • lilpretzel
    Is that a protest photo?? :whistling: :D I'll pass it on to nod just in case she has missed your reply.
  • yovi
    well, depending on the size of the screen/window, you can make it four lines. :eek: or even 7
  • photographyisart
    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
  • nod
    :D technically it is four lines though no?
  • thanratt
    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?
  • thanratt
    Oops... nearly forgot, congratulations to the Gold and Silver Medalists, they are worthy winners. Yes... you can stop cheering now.
  • craftykiwi
    nod;59747
    :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.
  • admin EDITOR

    Probably more likely to just get a lollipop and a chest to pin it on around here. :)
  • lisss
    Oh yay, I'm a winner :D I didnt think mine was any good TBH!

    Oh :( I thought i entered :confused:
  • nod
    This event seemed to be full of technicalities :D Lurkers are people that have never posted in the forum Bargainista .. sorry
  • thanratt
    Sorry for causing controversy, I never meant to (the way I read the details was that your post had to be a minimum of 4 lines. Will hand back the bronze medal if it's upsetting people who think that I won it 'unfairly'.
  • thanratt
    Can't get the medal to appear anyway :(

    LOL you're so funny. I think you should get the Bronze, cos your entry gave me a giggle. I've never read such an endless paragraph before! haha It's no biggie. It's just for fun. Don't worry! :) To add the medal to your signature, you need to put </strong> then insert the link, then enter <strong> Hope that helps :D
  • thanratt
    Thanks QS. I did have fun making that paragraph up. Haha, I thought the idea was to lure lurkers into the forums. I never actually cottoned on that it was supposed to be a chant - funny how we all interpret things differently. Thanks for the tip about how to wear my medal. I've done as you suggested, so here goes... how do I look?
  • thanratt
    Wow... looks great, don't ya think?
  • nod
    thanratt;59877
    Wow... looks great, don't ya think?
    Looks great ... and absolutely deserved ... very gracious that you were willing to hand back the medal ... but I understood that you had tried to make the cheer 4 lines long ;) Gave me a giggle too :D

    No harm done - it's all good fun and remember judges decision is final anyway.

    Ok Bargainista ... you are not quite a lurker but you did complete most of the tasks .. so a Bronze is heading your way :)
