    A tipping line at £5 per minute beckons, me thinks… :wink:

    A round of applause for everyone though, and two for Corm’ for his usual faultless dedication.

    By the way guys – the competition is decided on who has most winning days out of the four days so our 9-3 win today makes the actual score –

    TRF 1 – TH 0

    Should’ve made that clearer. They have it in their initial post on the thread when the competition was announced but I missed that bit of mine.

    I guess that rule was introduced by Talkinghorses, given the tanking they knew they’d get on the opening day! If this was the Ryder Cup we’d already have the trophy on our collective mantlepiece…

    LGR – it was in the rules from day 1 but I never clarified it in my initial post on TRF. To be fair, it is there very clearly on the initial post on TH.

    Means we still have a bit to do but, after today, I’m very confident we can mop up. A win for us tomorrow means best they can do is force a draw and a play-off.

    My comment was made in jest, Corm, in light of our resounding first day victory…even I read the rules before we started :wink:

    Great result everyone! 7/12 L.S.P.’s on a highly competitive Saturday is good going by any standards. Thanks also to Corm & Aidan for helping it along so smoothly.

    Good luck for tomorrow as well- let’s make it Dormie’s before February! 8)
