Indeed. In order to make it easier for my to keep the scores on Sunday, please can I have the score update as early as possible tomorrow morning and I will try to keep on with this (posting early) while I am scorekeeper.

I usually do it somewhere around 9am. There may be one or two claims to add in but it's not usually very busy at that time on a Sunday morning.

That's OK. I hope that you have been keeping the score correctly!

I can send you a copy of my score spreadsheet if you like. I don't think you can attach a file to a PM, but if you PM me your email address then I can email it to you.

Is it an Microsoft Excel (Office 365) compatible file? If it is, it will be useful and I will.

Scores as at 23:59 03/10/2015 - weekly figures in brackets, overall in bold.

GuyBarry (2040) 40665
DavidC (1890) 33165
moley (2025) 11475
leamfarrar (0) 7350
Going Und. (375) 6755
The muleteer (3185) 5185
Garion (150) 1665
A Challenge (660) 605
h. traveller (0) 375
tractakid (0) 18
tubeguru (0) -44400

Biggest advance this week was by The muleteer, who is now challenging for fifth place. A Challenge's advance would have been rather more if he hadn't made a couple of invalid claims earlier in the week, but he's into positive points now. Other positions are unchanged. I managed to achieve my aim of increasing my lead to 7500, but only just - it was last-minute stuff!

I'm now retiring from the game and also from keeping score, so I shall be handing over to A Challenge, who will be giving the weekly score updates for a while. I've enjoyed playing and wish good luck to everyone else.

Please can I have a volenteer to come forward to take the scoring duties from me as I don't want to do this for too long.

Unless I have missed something (which is perfectly possible), that is an invalid claim by A Challenge at 20:21 tonight
First to 100000 in the 2015+ Tumbleweed contest. Winner of a few rounds of a diverse range of quizzes/games. Some decent times in alternative challenges as a fiftysomething who merely walks briskly.

Yes. It is me not seeing a post on the next page like I did with Addlestone in the Slightly harder around the world game at the top of the current page. Sorry. Scores this afternoon with probably a 10 year FNC as I will finally visit Kensington (Olympia).
