Yet again I'm tipped from me bed and told to get out and recruit !! So, here it is folks, The Kevvie is back !! Yayyyyyyyyyy
All the old hands are probably already equipped and fighting fit but a lot of newbies on site who I hope to sucker in.
If you see someone standing by looking lost , invite them into a team and hand out the grenades and stabproof vests.
Usual format of 4 a side teams, silly name compulsory, round robin format, 2 points for a win, tied at the end and points difference decides the winner.All brainoffs Random.
My lovely assistant Javalyne will be in charge of all the technical stuff and I'm in charge of shouting and waving me arms.So any problems contact either of us.
Simply post "I'm in " and if you haven't got a team you'll be carefully prodded in the right direction.
Don't worry if you are still hanging about by friday cos the weekend rush is famed for it's sudden flowering of teams and bodies being flung left, right and centre to get everyone in.
I'm going back to bed , I've got a good book and lots of coffee, get on with it !!!

Sorry I won't be able to play this time; my Internet connection has been acting up, and challenges take way too long to play for some reason (it goes through the questions OK, then takes several minutes to show the results). Until I can figure out what's wrong, I'm not playing too much on Factacular.

Kev said it starts on the 6th. It is just you folks from the US use a back to front way of recording dates. 6/7/09 as Kev posted (post #11) is July 6th - we put the date then the month.

It does get confusing with people listing numbers differently. Spelling out the name of the Month may be a solution.

Ahhhh....newbie.....bank on prayer....

For your entertainment pleasure, I am posting the Wootally Red Eagles Prayer for the Kevington...

Oh Facta-gods...

We beseech thee to hear us, for our intentions are good, holy, and pure. We wish no harm or turmoil to befall our competitors, and beseech you to send perhaps a little more brain power on the Wootally Red Eagles so that we will go forth and spread our vast knoweldge on all that we encounter. We know that we may make missteps along the way, because, seriously, who really knows the atomic weight of Molybdenum, or the King of Finland in 1546, or the life expectancy of a Kenyan Fruit Fly (not to be confused with the common fruit fly), but we pray that even if we do not know the answer that you feel free to answer for us. We also thank you for all the factacublessings you impart upon us during this coming week. All this we ask, in the name of the Factactapapa, the Factactason and the Factactaghost!!! AMEN!!!

Haven't heard anything from Mano. Let's all hope that nothing serious has happened and it may be a communication/internet problem in his part of the world.

anandbabu86, you can find out where people are from by pointing at their name and clicking. It will show you information about them including where they are from, when they joined, etc. Some people post silly home places but most are true.

I can probably knock the top of your skull off with one of these with a good rap of a hammer , you know. You don't want that. Wait until I get some stilettos. It's better. Don't worry about being whipped up this week. It was your first time!

Seeing as we have lots of new people I thought I'd give an overview of the tournaments currently on offer.

Here is the current Tournament schedule:

July
Week 1: Kevvie
Week 2:
Week 3: Decathlon
Week 4: Language Tournament

August
Week 1: Java Jive
Week 2:
Week 3: Decathlon
Week 4: Arts & Literature Tournament
Week 5:

September
Week 1: Kevvie
Week 2: Music Tournament
Week 3: Decathlon
Week 4: Mexican Wave


The Decathlon is comprised of 30 category challenges - 3 from each of the 10 categories (Language, Science & Nature, History & Mythology, Music etc). It is an individual competition and my personal favourite (Don't tell Kev or Java). It takes place in the 3rd week of each month. Sign up for that will be posted in the Decathlon Forum this coming week.

Individual Category Tournaments E.g. the Language Tournament, the Art & Literature Tournament and the Music Tournament. These tournaments are comprised of 30 different subjects from one category. It is an individual competition. It is held in the 4th (sometimes the 2nd) week of the month. Sign up will be in the Announcement Forum and on your Home Pages the week before it starts.

The Mexican Wave This annual tournament is held in memory of a treasured member of Factacular, Susana Sànchez, who died last year. Details are still to be confirmed but last year it was a single subject tournament played in teams of 3, with subjects relating to Susanna in some way. Sign up will be in the Announcement Forum and on your Home Pages the week before it starts.

The Kevvie As you know this one comprises of 30 random brainoffs and is competed in teams of 4. It alternates with the Java Jive in the first week of the month. Sign up is in the Kevvie Forum and on your home pages the week before it starts.

The Java Jive is the most evil competition known to womankind. This comprises of 30 single subject challenges lovingly chosen by our resident Factactrix Javalyne, with help from her Partner in Crime (me). Health Warning - This tournament can damage your mental health, it is not for the faint-hearted! It alternates with the Kevvie in the 1st week of each month because participants need 2 months to recover. It is a pairs competition, you will be paired with someone based on your sign-up date so new people get to be with those who are more experienced and can provide first aid if needed. Sign up will be in the Announcement Forum and on your Home Pages the week before it starts.

Various other competitions may take place if and when members have the time and inclination to run them.

Hope this helps and we will see you signing up for some more tournaments in the near future.
