Well done, team 'The Rubiks'

You got in the decisive stride, courtesy of Captain Cubes, and 'French Emotion'  !  Top stuff. A thoroughly deserved win in a magnificent game. The lead changed 5 times !!

Great effort from all participants in this high-scoring match.  Team Aggregates don't count in 'sudden death' matchplay, but the aggregates were impressive.A pleasure to have taken part in this match.

Thank you very much to my Magnificent 'Ad Augusta' team-mates Cat, Casper, Tom and Wrinkles ! You played so very well throughout the series, and we went so very close today to making the Grand Final. Close but no cigar.A Minor Premiership win is a good consolation anyway. Cheers, fellas ...would love to be in a team with you guys again.

Thanks very much PJ for a wonderful competition ...for your very hard work and for the enjoyment you give us.

Cheers, all.

Hi, PJ.

Thank you for the offer of a 3rd-place playoff, however speaking for myself I'm happy to settle for 3rd = and share a Bronze Medal with Betza Grand --- as we Ad Augusta pretty much said our goodbyes after yesterday's big match and I'd prefer to leave it all there, kick back now and see the focus solely on the two worthy Grand Finalists 'The Rubiks' and the 'Dark Horses' next Saturday. I'll enjoy a spectator's seat for one week. I really don't know PJ how you (and John who is a brilliant backup) manage the scoring and updates for 4 matches each Saturday in such a professional and timely manner - you both have my utmost respect - because I really was fully-stretched with just the one match yesterday. I'm worn out :D

Thanks PJ but happy to share 3rd

Thanks for the Comp

Enjoy

Tom

Tom, you have undergone a name change?
It has taken a while to correlate the site names versus first names that PJ uses, and now you have thrown another curly in for the next comp. I had got used to Tom Turkey (Turny) to help remember.

Things were looking a little dire at about R5 yesterday. We were -200 on 3 matches and looking at the head of a fairly large python. Then Roland produced one of those $91 winners that made Catalano's day and things swung from there. Sorry Cat, many of us have been there - often! Howie's "rooster to feather duster" quote sprung to mind.

So we are happy to be in the final. Two weeks ago we were 5th and would have been happy to have got in the finals. So we are claiming major underdog status and hope Roland has another biggie hand grenade to toss in the Dark Horses direction next week. Rotorua & Morphetteville seem the ideal place for those :)
I suspect Skelly is looking at Cubemeister's last race winner yesterday (again)  and thinking.. (sensored).

A big thanks to Howie for keeping us entertained yesterday. He was ever the optimist right up until the end. I am surprised a quick R11 was not added to the program yesterday.

Bad luck Howie and the Ad Augustas, you had it won comfortably.  I would have been ready to concede, but then longshot Cam's nemesis Roly, came along and put us back in the game. then just when it seemed we might miss by a few pixels(10.2 pts to be exact), the good old skip brings it on home.

Now that's going to really confuse you Geoffrey:D

Mrs Cubes reminded Cubity to be a good sport and give some Shout Outs to the Minor Prems "Ad Augustas"...

Catalano....former Thunderbird #1...Scott...in Professor Jenkins first ever draft format.....Cubes first ever draft pick......

8 and 6 going into the semi.....All you did was pick the first 4 winners and the last....Both BB's come home ....quinella in the 2nd....

Tough to defend a 92-1 shot

Wrinkles.....caused the Cubemeister and the Kloppinator serious aggrevation.....$504 in a semi-final.....wisdom there foresure....

Howie..legend..'nuff said

Tom/Turny...BB play in the last...Minor premier....class all the way...bad luck  up against Lastof40 who in all  PJcompetitioningness has probably the bestest recordness...

Casper....Picked the first , quinella the second , BB quinella the third , picked the fourth...put The Cubemeister in a two hundred buck hole.....

Awesome comp , just joking Howie , five lead changes ,  a semi-final for the ages....

Editorial.....

I have been asked by a number of people including the owners of both sites (this one and the "new" one) where I will operate my Super Comps from in future. In short I have not made a decision or given an answer to anyone.

I understand the issues involved in what has caused a break-away site and also the grievances of the current site owner. I don't want to enter into a debate on either of those here.

I find it sad that I am basically being asked to CHOOSE between one site or the other not only by the owners of the sites but by their supporters. Quite frankly the more pressure which is poured on me from either faction the less likely I will be to continue with the super comps at all. I hope you can understand my reaction. At the end of the day the comps are about having fun both for participants and for myself, the organizer. Once the fun is gone, it's like a marriage, what's the point ?

It was pointed out to me by someone else recently that the Super Comps (now in operation for somewhere around a decade) are actually an institution or to put it another way, a community. Something many people look forward to each week, a ritual not huge in it's importance but significant in it's place in people's familiar routine every week. Modesty has perhaps prevented me from acknowledging this in the past. For this reason and my own enjoyment I would like to see the Super Comps continue until I am no longer able to because of time or personal constraints.

What frustrates me most about the current situation is that both site owners want exclusivity. I understand that for them, the sites are a business but they sometimes miss the point that for participants it is for enjoyment and entertainment only. Personally I don't want to be restricted to one site exclusively and therefore excluded from the other. I think that position is draconian and bordering on social facism. Unfortunately the behaviour of some participants has steeled the owners into this position. If there were 5 similar sites I would like the opportunity to participate at all 5. Imagine if Coles (Kiwis think Countdown) and Woolies each insisted that you could only shop with them at the exclusion of the other store. Would you be happy about that ? I think not.

Each site (and the comps that are included on them) should stand alone and attract participation based on their appeal. Personally I find some comps simply too complicated or badly organized which for me means I can't be bothered participating. I have limited time on a Saturday morning (who would have guessed) so this also cuts down spare time for me to participate. 

At this stage I have not made a decision. I also have the option of running the comps via say Facebook or even Brian's regular comp site. I don't want to offend anyone but at the same time if i get subjected to much more pressure on where to host future comps I will just go dog and jack it in. 

Please comment if you wish, but be respectful to the site owner (as per the rules of participation).
