    If possible BigG i’m happy to sacrifice my zero points in exchange to put in a new stable from scratch
    maybe you could twist Anna’s arm

    Thanks Jac, I’m glad we got a favourable response from Anna. I did mention that I hadn’t
    submitted a stable because of some fancied horses running not being available for selection,
    but I think I had a choice, I could have entered a stable, but once you entered the competition
    you didn’t have a choice. I think that the case I was making to Anna was on behalf of those who
    entered the competition and I don’t want to add on bits now. I’m happy that she has come up with
    a solution that was acceptable to me and I’ll leave it there. Thanks for the thought Jac, I appreciate
    that and I’m sure your response to them acted as a pincer movement from us both on behalf of TRF B-)

    I’ll wait until I get an update from Nathan, Tonge and Euroalien and anyone else from TRF who might
    come forward.

    Hi Nathan, I hear what you say, but if she gives you an extra swap it effectively lets you
    have a new stable with 5 lives remaining. It might be a bit like having your cake and eating
    it if she were to a allow new stable and 6 swaps. I hope that’s ok

    Of course it is BigG, thank you for your efforts
    How does the swaps work?
    I’m a bit slow getting my head around them. is it one change per time or can you multi swap horses ??

    You can make 1 swap or the complete stable in one go Nathan, both count as 1 swap. That
    was why I mentioned that the extra swap allowed you to select a completely new stable and
    you will still have 5 swaps left to use :good:

    That’s really decent of you Graham and so pleased that everyone who missed out on those missing horses is getting the chance to have an extra swap, I’m certainly going to use mine wisely.

    Really looking forward to the next Meydan Thursday and getting our heads together to mull over the runners once more. :good: Jac

    Oh wow – that is really good Graham! Thanks Mate! A full swap of all horses is perfect.

    Cheers Euro, it gives you a fresh start and any points you have managed
    to get from your stable when there was a restricted selection choice
    stay with you. I think it’s a good deal :good:

    I think we are just waiting for Tonge to give her stable name, and nwalton if
    he put a stable in prior to raceday last Thursday. I’ll send off the names in
    one go rather rather than dribs and drabs. Hopefully I can have everyones partics
    over the weekend and get them off by Monday at the latest :good:

    I hope Tonge and nwalton check in here today and notice we are looking for their stable names.
    The messaging system seems to be, like a few other things on the site, not working properly. I
    just typed up a message to Tonge and it said it had been sent okay, but when I checked the message
    I found it had been sent to someone completely different :unsure:

    I really want to get my reply back to Anna by tomorrow morning at the latest, so Tonge and nwalton,
    if you check in here today could you leave me your stable name please :good:

    Hopefully Tonge will pop by here tomorrow Graham to have a look at the ‘decs’ and can leave her details then. Not sure if nwalton is playing but he usually likes to let us know when the ‘decs’ are out so he may be here tomorrow also.

    The messaging system seems completely up the creek and not recognising members names. My profile has me down as being a member here for 20 years :wacko: I think it’s been 8 or 9 years at a push so I think that there are still ‘gremlins’ at work on here…
    Someone has been creeping into The Lounge after midnight and feeding them :wacko:
    Come on David own up. :yes:

    Thanks Big G but it would not let read it kept going off screen before I could reply. So please don’t think I was rude
    By not answering to you directly. I have not entered a team
    for the carnival, good luck to all who have
