Greetings and Salutations simple people. As the mist clears in the weak early morning sun the whole vista is alive with aimlessly staggering groups of wretched beings. Tortured beyond belief, unseeing eyes fixed on the horizon, they are urged on by the cries from their squad leaders of the old Factacularia motto " If you can't take a joke, you shouldn't join !! "
With this in mind I cheerfully announce the onset of yet another Kevvie. Such a welcome relief from the nonsensical tourneys available from other, less talented people. This grandaddy of tourneys is open to any group of like minded simpletons, simply post "I'm in " and my staff and I will do the rest, although you will have to play the brainoffs yourselves !! No friends ?? Still open to you, posting in means we can have fun abusing you and pushing you into groups of similar billynomates, all are welcome, non refused !!
4 a side, Random brainoffs, played under a league system with points difference deciding winners in event of a tie.
Any questions feel free to pester me.

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 (insert team name here) 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!!!

Unfortunately Javalyne has computer problems at the moment and JMK has kindly stepped into the breach,which is why Homepage alerts may not yet be showing up. That , I'm sure, will be sorted today. Just cos JMK is new I expect the same reverence shown to Java or I shall be most displeased.

In - the call has gone out for the International Desperados - Bowler and Gokie Gary. Sag was called but he has gone to the dark side - so if Bowler and Gokie sign up I will need a reliable and knowledgeable gunslinger to complete the team.

KevG three of the Iternational Desperados have committed themselves to the fight Bowler, Gokie Gary and SBFM will be ready to shoot our way out and prevail in the heat of battle.

Required one good gunslinger who feels they can stand the heat and the burden.

Interestingly that gives us 10 teams. If no more sign ups today I will organise the odds and sods tonite. You will then have 2 days to ,perhaps, challenge each other and discuss team names. Sillier the better but no prizes for that. Will Shorty's mob prefer a gun or a peashooter ?? or will they end up with a newbie which will strengthen Kevvies aim of world domination ?? Stay tuned for developments tonite !!!!!

One more player and we are ready to rock and roll. Please make any teams complete by 6pm GMT after that I will take over and delegate your teams. You will then have until Sunday evening before JMK and i come up with hilarious names for these teams. So keep eyes pinned to board and as soon as teams posted get a brainoff going to sort out your team name cos you really don't want to hear what I have in store !!
