Summer Super Draft Comp - Round 5 - Sat Feb 12 - selection thread


Recommended Posts

ROUND 5 - Saturday Feb 12

A bonza card awaits us in Round 5 with 9 of the 10 races carrying Group status. The Wurzels, who have found the key to winning at last, now face a stiff test as they take on clear table leaders Surf N Turf with Geoff looking to break the 1st draft pick hudu. The only side without a win - the Grey Ways - look to take down former leaders The Mr Aybees, who are coming off a very ordinary bye week performance, while the Grim Reapers take on the Yahabebees with both sides neck and neck on six points thus far. Two sides who probably feel they should be a lot higher on the table than their current position - the Hot Baches & Max Factors (each with a Joker up their sleeves) - battle it out in the other clash. Finally former leaders Offngone will be looking for a reset opportunity in their bye week but who will they take on ? Not a standout match but I have a hunch they may make a left-field choice and target Pete and Ray's sides.

Pam, Jen, Roland and Geoff looking to break their duck while the only unbeaten competitors left are Surf N Turf pair Ray & Graeme.

Captains need to be aware that they cannot play their Jeopardy Chip and Joker in the same Round. Might see one or two of each sprayed around this weekend....



Due to problems that have occurred so far in the comp the following changes will be made:

a) The posting deadline for selections will now be ONE HOUR before the first race in the comp. Everyone is expected to post by this time.

b) After the one hour deadline, Captains (or a nominated person from their team) will be able to post any scratching sub, missing BBs, etc necessary. They will have 30 minutes to do this. If you have team members who have posted to your own private message chat then this is the time to post their selections to the selection thread.

c) After this 30 minute period (1 hour before race 1 to 30 minutes before race 1) the thread will be deemed closed and no correspondence, changes, selections will be accepted after this time. Period. No excuses will be accepted. In that time I will post the extrapolations for the first race, time permitting. As in the case of Steve P yesterday who originally posted a completely wrong set of picks, this will need to be fixed before the 30 minute close off. The corrections will need to be in a new post not as an added post to the original selection post.  

d) THIS IS IMPORTANT. EVERY POST to the selection page needs to be a new message/thread. Do not edit posts and do not post on the thread on which you have already posted your selections. Most people do this already using a heading like "Craig's Scratching Subs" or something similar. If you don't follow this rule and add posts to your selection thread they will be ignored and any changes requested will not be granted. If Captains notice that team members have disobeyed this rule then they will have to correct the issue in a new post.

Post your selections here. Remember, two selections per race; one best bet in each country; scratching replacements on a new post (don't edit your original). You won't know your opponents selections until the selection thread is opened up 20 minutes before the start of comp race #1.

Captains need to be alert. Despite all the focus on earlier closing times and not posting changes on the same selection thread, last week a couple of competitors did exactly this and it wasn't picked up by their Captains. That's why I have given you half an hour to fix these issues
