Maybe not, but some of us could probably do with gaining a few extra pounds - borderline anorexics perhaps?...

Awesome can we have some hard figures please? I want to know exactly how much I'm contributing to the prize fund and then aim to win that amount back. I'll do anything for a free meal I might even break my no snaking rule XD

Lol. We need to sell about 500 burgers. So bring your American friends. Billy, Tony, Jim and Ice can only do a few hundred on their own.

Is there a reason the latest event (2BRB) starts relatively early on Saturday, Jon? Any chance of adding something like a second DYP starting, like the Friday's DYP, at like 9pm? Drunk foos is part of the reason I'm coming :P

If 2BRB starts on time, I will run an extra OS and OD starting at 9pm. That cool? ;-)

Does anybody fancy a few games tomorrow? I'll be landing mid morning. I'm travelling to England to get a few decent games and will end up twiddling my thumbs for a day.

Hrmmm Hrmmm you mean "Aller les Blues!!!" I know, I know how did they manage to get there??? It's Wales fault for not scoring 1 drop kick during the entire game.... Hey I've been supporting England all the way! But i suppose its got to have some advantages having a dual-nationality!!! 9am Match viewing for sure! :drinking: :morning:
