With tears in my eyes and a heavy heart I formally annnounce the commencement of yet another Kevvie. As those who have watched the debacle of England's World Cup bid will understand this is not a time for levity. Suffice to say, with the exception of David James, they should all be returned to the minor leagues to learn how to play the damn game !!!
Anyway, usual format, 4 to a team, if you've got friends you can form your own team otherwise just post "I'm in" and I'll sort you into a group of billynomates by the weekend. My lovely assistant will be prancing around cracking her whip shortly so best be quick !! I'm assuming everybody knows the league system by now and that points difference will decide in the event of a tie.
Still distraught, carry on.

Leo McKern has joined our team. 3 out of 4. Only one ticket to the big time left, folks. Frankly, with Leo, SSG and myself making up the backbone of the squad it's hard to see what particular qualities any aspiring fourth member can hope to offer!!!!

Apologies I forgot to post Tallyho's Prayer for those who are about to do battle.

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!!!

I'm sure Tally's Famous Store is now open for those who wish to stock up on RPG's, T72's and the odd second hand Nuclear bomb.

That sort of contradicts your first post. "...you can form your own team otherwise just post 'I'm in' and I'll sort you into a group...." I would think "last in" would mean last of the unattached in.

Failing that, simply form a team of two or three people and assign the average score of the real players to each of the phantom players. Not the best set up, but it's been done before and everyone gets a chance to play.

I'd forgotten we had done that before, good idea Puffin, not sure if the girls can do that in the system but a bit of manipulation with pen and paper should do it. I hasten to add I'm quite happy to get out me own pen and paper, the girls do quite enough already.

tentatively adding Cuzzie and Kitsune which completes sign up, we may have got thru unscathed. I'll have a chat with you all about sign up issues after this is over cos friday/saturday nights can be fraught as I try to get numbers up.

Quiz3000 to bolster the newbies sofarrell etc, can we have a team name please.

Lindy and Axana to join Stargazers

Philgreek in with Tally, Dunc etc

Figgynomates, mano, Cuzzie and Kitsune completing the set, team name if possible today although we can do that for you if need be.

Speaking of drinking Tabbs - I reckon we are at a disadvantage in the kevvie as there's a water shortage int' north so we have to drink more beer / wine / spirit and that doesn't make a clear head

What you mean it was just in the 18th C? Well you know news doesn't travel fast in these parts so what we're 300 years late? Let's drink to that!

Actually I had a Blond Witch the other night - a great summer beer, just right for when you are sitting by the bomfire
