Well, it reduces my lead to a mere 7575 points. I think I can just about cope :)

Can you?


I go into the Tumbleweed section of the forum to see that less than a minute ago:

Scores as at 23:59 26/09/2015 - weekly figures in brackets, overall in bold.

GuyBarry (1500) 38625
DavidC (1200) 31275
moley (3225) 9450
leamfarrar (-300) 7350
Going Und. (0) 6380
The muleteer (2000) 2000
Garion (1425) 1515
h. traveller (0) 375
tractakid (0) 18
A Challenge (1820) -55
tubeguru (0) -44400

Some interesting changes this week, with moley leaping into third place, and a strong entrance from The muleteer, who finishes the week in sixth. Good progress from Garion, and a strong recovery from A Challenge, who has almost completely wiped out the negative score from last week.

Once again I've increased my lead slightly, to 7350 points. I'd hoped to get it up to 7500 (100 bells) but a combination of my own carelessness and clever tactical play from DavidC stopped that. When I get my lead at the end of the week up to 7500 I intend to retire, both as player and scorekeeper.

Tubeguru - do you want to take the scores over again after that, or appoint a new scorekeeper?

I was hoping to get back to positive or at least zero this week.

Well that's not what you said! :)

If you want to get to zero, you can claim right now and get the points.

I will do it from this next week if you want but not for too long please. Can I know whether I will be doing it for this week ASAP (Preferably before 19:00 this evening please)

Thanks. I'll be doing the scores this week but I've told Tubeguru I don't intend to continue after that. I'm sure he'll be delighted if you volunteer to take them over - maybe you could drop him a PM as I'm not sure if he's reading this thread.

Whoever wants to do the scores can do so. Just arrange it so that you both know where the dividing line is.

I will be happy to do a few weeks from tomorrow but I don't want to do it for too long (not over a month if possible). I shall work from tomorrow mornings scores at midnight and put in from then. I will keep weekly score updates for all the players as well.

Please can we just keep the current scores going. There is no need to 'start again'.

Well we're not starting again from zero. I assume that A Challenge is going to start from where I leave off.
