Just when I thought I’d got out, they drag me back in. Yes, I’m back for Tokyo. It seems we have an active board for the first time in god knows how long. Nice to see, especially at what’s usually the board’s holy grail time - Games time. Okay, so how about a bit of fun for the games? Get the board rocking again. I hereby announce the GamesBids Tokyo 2020+1 Sweepstakes. It’s simple - put your name down here to be put in the draw for a national; team to support for the games. I will draw those names against the teams that finished at the top of the medal table at Rio 2016. For example, if we get 10 people joining the sweep, they will get drawn one of the top 10 countries of Rio’s medal table. At the end of Tokyo 2020+1, the countries’ medal tallies will be compared to how they went at Rio. Each country will be awarded 1 point for each bronze medal they won above what they got in Rio. 2 points for each silver above their Rio tally and 3 points for each extra gold won at Tokyo compared to Rio. The sweepstakes winner will be the one whose country has most improved since Rio. See, simples. Sign up here, get drawn a country, and cheer your adopted team on to victory! Feel free to get into the spirit of it too - feel free to support your adopted team in your signature, board icon or even a new board name for the duration of the games. So, who’s in?
I guess it’s time to see if there’s any interest in doing a sweep. Can’t we get 32 members to put their names down for a draw? It’s not like anybody has to do anything built to post “I’m in” - and then maybe assume your new team’s identity for the duration of our trip through Mother Russia. If we do get the numbers, I’ll do a draw and then do a nice graphic chart for the tournament. Anyway, let’s se how interest goes. Just post in this thread if you wanna take part. Hopefully I can do the draw a day or two before the kick-off.
