I ended up placing 4/7. Oops! The bad news is that I was demoted to the ‘House League’ (see below) but the good news is that I won the House League! Since Norma won the ‘Competitive League’ and I won the ‘House League’ we’re taking ourselves out for lunch. (Well…we’re just going out for lunch but it’s much more fun to think it’s a Victory Lunch!)
My final stats: 8 winning cups out of approx. 65. A huge improvement over last year’s dismal 4/91! Alas, the Rim Roller has officially been retired until late February of next year. (Between you and I…I’m hoping to miss 2 weeks of the fun next year while in China but that seems virtually impossible right now. Oh well, miracles still happen! And my strategy to stay in the running even if I’m in China ? Take Norma and Russ with me! Norma will be traveling with Mom, Dad and I and Russ and his wife are in my travel group. Pretty good strategy eh???)
Lastly, this was the first year that we had a ‘contest’ and oh what fun we had with it! I’ve mentioned before the fun emails that we would send to one another throughout the contest. For your reading pleasure I leave you with some of my favourites!
Seeing as the roll-up season is drawing to a close, I thought I’d mention that handicaps will be applied next season based on standard mean and deviation.
Do you think that we could maybe split this up into two charts? One could be the 'Competitive' chart and the other could be sort of a 'House League' chart where you are just playing for fun. You could put Me, Russ, Catherine and Norma in the 'Competitive' chart and You, Nancy and Cory could be in the 'House League'.
Maybe Norma could give us a talk at the end to tell us some of her secrets.
i.e.. 1. How she selects the winning Line/Cashier.
2. Her technique for rolling up the rim.
3. How to spot a winning cup.
4. Does she count cups?
5. How to move ahead in the line to get a winning cup.
6. What cup size does she drink?
Are you picking cups out of the garbage again?
I've also found a few on other peoples desks!!! Let's just say Cory's winnings would be a lot higher if he wasn't so inattentive.
Oh yeah - I almost forgot that I won a donut today! Ken can vouch for me - its in his tummy.
It was great fun while it lasted! See everyone next year. I'm off to use up some of my winning tabs before they expire!
