    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 :)

    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.

    :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?
  • queenshrew
    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 ETA: Uhm..do I have to update my avatar? Dorothy would make a great champion imo! My little girl thinks so anyway :D
  • winniblu
    Is being the olympic village pimp a sport??? ok I would like to go in for the Synchronized Swimming ....
  • nod
    no you dont need to update your avatar... just so long as you have one :) The list of events will go up on Sunday night .. with the team events announced at that time too (will be in the second week of the games)
  • winniblu
    hmmmm how do I change my avatar?
  • nod

    :D - thats not a sport......
    But it's at the Olympics so surely it must qualify??
  • craftykiwi
    nod;58633
    no you dont need to update your avatar... just so long as you have one :) The list of events will go up on Sunday .. with the team events announced at that time too
    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??
  • voteoften
    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.
  • winniblu
    so will you be voting for the libs??
  • queenshrew
    I got a new avatar of Dorothy the gymnast :)
  • voteoften
    winniblu;58653
    so will you be voting for the libs??
    naturally.... :)
  • nod
    :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

  • hellwolf
    I'm in for tonight, shame there is no tennis event as that's my forte.
  • admin EDITOR
    We could mix up a bit of tennis and weightlifting. The weightlifter has to lift the bar to tennis net height and then maintain that while two people either side of him whack the balls back and forth.
  • nod
    You might all notice a few medals appearing around the place .... :D
