    Inter Forum Champions Day Competition versus The Racing Forum October 20th 2018

    Had an enquiry from Nathan on TRF to see if we are interested in taking part in this again, we have been beaten in both the first two years so would be nice to record a victory this year. I think we will ask that someone from their forum runs it season as NewApproach and I have both taken a turn to do the scoring, all we need to do is find upto sixteen members willing to take part this year so please indicate your willingness to take part below. Have added a copy of the rules used last year.

    Rules

    Entries can be made on either the Talking Horses Forum or The Racing Forum regardless of which team the player represents. Each team will consist of 16 players including one captain.

    A draw is made on the Wednesday prior to the meeting whereby players are paired together and compete with each other by nominating one selection in each of the six races at Ascotís Champions Day meeting with one selection noted as a nap. The first player to be drawn out on each side will be the captain for this yearís contest.
    A virtual £2 win bet will be placed on the nap with a virtual £1 win bet on your other selections. In the event a nap is not nominated, all selections will be settled on a £1 win basis. Stake money will not be included in any returns but losing selections result in losing the virtual stake. If your selection is a non runner, the virtual stake is placed on the favourite for that race, however joint or co favourites will be settled accordingly. For the purpose of this competition any Rule 4 deductions will be ignored. Selections (one reserve for each race allowed) must be in by 1.15PM and no submissions or alterations are permitted thereafter. In each match the winning player scores 3 points, a tie will be scored as 1 point each and the winning forum will be the one who scores most points. If the result is a tie the accumulated profit (or loss) of all the players in their respective team will be the deciding factor.
    If a team member fails to post selections, the captainís selections are used again on behalf of that player. If the captain fails to post selections on the day, the captainís and all absent players score will be calculated as a losing selection on each race including one nap.

    Pluralism of Ideas and the prosperity of any land are intertwined. Freedom of minds and skill of intellect to 'think the unthinkable' is how humanity has progressed; when minds are incarcerated nothing endures.

    We now have the sixteen players required including myself but please continue to add your names if you wish, it may be that TRF have extra volunteers although they currently only have twelve or thirteen if you count Nathan.

    Looks as if TRF will have a full team, only two or three to go and they have a few on standby. Not sure which of them is running it yet mind.

    Nathan (NHughes on here) is doing the draw and the scoring, have asked him to post the draw on here when it's done.
