Don't see the point in it going on tbh as it's never maintained.

Unfortunately I have to say yes. It was a good game while it lasted but during the clay season it seriously declined.

Yes, but it seemed to revive later.  Anyway unless some members can make a firm commitment to keep it going, then I don't see the point in continuing with it which is a shame, although I do admit that I sometimes forgot about it until it was too late.

Your goals minus your doubts equal your reality

Work commitment,s and time difference,s did it for me I'm afraid, unless you can take part for every tournament, albeit it's just a bit of fun, it's a no goer for me....BECAUSE I WANNA WIN.

Yes.
I wonder if people would like to form a team in one of the challenge brackets? They are good fun. I'm on a team from another forum. The advantage is the scores are done for us.

The mind doubts, but the heart never does.

It's a bit of a commitment for any single person to maintain, tbh.  A team thing like BBH suggests sounds good?

I play in BBH's group too, and it's much better than RTR because it's more of a challenge, and how seriously you take it is up to you.  Also, as she says, the scores are done for you.  The main difference though is that you have to predict how the tournie will pan out before it starts, and once the deadline has been passed that's it, but it least it means people don't have to try to remember to do it every day  - something I keep forgetting with RTR.

Well, I'd be up for that, if the rest of the Members agree.  I guess someone would have to take ownership?

Yes, but more in the sense of taking charge of it rather than owning it.   BBH probably knows better than I do, but it doesn't seem like a very onerous task.

Not for someone who's retired and really dedicated to MW...  Can't think of anyone like that... Whistle

I would offer to do it but, because of bouts of depression, I'm too unreliable.  Maybe BBH might consider it?
