  1. Well, got to see some of the new sports in the games now. What’s people’s thoughts? For me, a bit of mixed reaction so far. I’ve watched a fair bit of the skateboarding street event, and was a bit underwhelmed. Not quite as spectacular as I’d expected - looked highly technical and few wow moments. Best thing to me was seeing the two 13-year-old medallist’s in yesterday’s women’s (girls) event. Cute. Maybe the park events will be a bit more spectator-worthy. Surfing? Hmmm. First few days too was a bit tedious to watch. Most of it was watching a few people out in the surf waiting for waves. A bit like watching the tide come in. That said, by theta me it came today to watch some Aussies in the quarter and semi finals, and getting a bit of an idea about the scoring and tactics, it did start to have some excitement. Probably would be even better under bluer skies, in bluer waters against whiter sand. I still like Paris’ idea of having in in Tahiti. I’ll keep my eyes out for the others. Climbing sounds intriguing.
  2. Watching the men’s road race now - looking forward to seeing the circuits around Fuji. But already, gotta say, it’s nice to see crowds along the track. Starting to feel like a games.
  3. 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?
  4. Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games will kick off Games Volunteer Programme registration from 26 September 2018 until December 2018. https://tokyo2020.org/en/news/notice/20180912-01.html
  5. And welcome back everyone for the Quarter Finals of the GamesBids Olympic Logo Winners' Cup! And we've sure got some mouthwatering quarter finals lined up! Thanks for everyone that voted - and sorry if I've had to spam to get people involved - just as I've mentioned elsewhere, without status updates, it's hard to promote these comps now. And it's about time Blake contributed something useful to the board. Anyway, in the pool round we had a mix of clear results and a few draws, where I've (and I must say, it's for the first time ever in these comps) had to cast the deciding votes/take the penalty kicks. My decisions were based on a number of factors - my pure aesthetic preferences, evening out some of the finalists who got through and an eye to what sort of match-ups they would produce in these quarter final rounds. For these Quarter Finals - from Groups A and C. The results were: Group A: Tokyo - clear winner with 7 votes. Prague, runner up with 6 votes (including one from me). Aomori (3) and Sochi (1) were eliminated. Group C: Paris - winner on 7 votes (including one from me). Toronto - runner up with 6 votes. Christchurch (5) and Rio (0) were eliminated. Danny's Rio logo was the only one not to get any votes in the pool stages. Which sets us up with two intriguing Quarter Finals. QF1 matches up (in the first of two such match-ups in the QF round) the two heavyweights - Paul and aismanggo. Paul's Tokyo takes on aismanggo's Toronto in a tough round yo see who will get through. Good luck to both! QF2 is the Battle of Britain. Davey versus Rob. I'm sorta sorry to bring these two up against each other, and, yes, I could have avoided it by my penalty kick. But this is how it was shaping up yesterday and I sorta got to like the Brit battle aspect of it. So its Davey's Paris versus Rob's Prague. Good luck guys! Okay, rules: 1) It's one vote per person, per Quarter Final. You can vote in a both matches, or only one, as you wish. 2) You have a week to vote - voting in this stage is open until Wednesday December 14. 3) The winning logo in each quarter final at the close will progress to the next round - the Semi-Finals. 4) If there is a tie between any 2 logos in any match, I reserve a casting vote/penalty kick. I will not vote in the regular voting time, & if I do need to use a casting vote, I will base it first on my own subjective opinion. At the end of this Quarter Final round, the Semi-Finals will be arranged according to the draw diagram from which the two surviving finalists will be chosen for the Grand Final which should culminate on December 31, just before submissions close in our regular logo comp (Kathmandu 2030 and Hamburg 2032/Havana 2032). You can vote for yourself if you want to. They're all great logos battling it out now - may the best of them now reign over the rest. Good luck to all! And one last thing - if you're looking at these and inspired - please get out your graphics packages and make sure you're in this year's comp. Go to this thread to enter!
