Welcome to the Spicy Sports Tournament
Consider yourself a sports fan?
Is sports your forte?
Are your track shoes your best friend?
Can you name who won the FA cup or World Series for the last 10 years?
Or do you just like to watch sports on the telly?
Do you play chess to relax?
Or do you just want a bit of fun?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the tournament for you.
The Spicy Sports Tournament will commence on Monday February 26th at approx. 8.15 am GMT give or take an hour or two.
The rules are listed below. To take part, simply post “I’m in” in this thread. Sign-up closes 5 am GMT Monday February 26th

GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION

Competition will consist of six (6) different sports and leisure subject brainoffs of 10 questions being sent every day for five days - a total of 30 different sports and leisure subjects. You will receive brainoffs from ‘Tournament’. Only the Tournament referee and her line umpire have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Hopefully there will be something to suit everyone.

The competition will be an individual one but you will be playing in groups in a similar manner to the Decathlon. The individual with the highest cumulative total wins. A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum. In the case of a tie the tournament referee or her line umpire will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie. Awards will be given at the end of the tournament for whatever takes the fancy of Tournament referee or her line umpire.
Just to make it interesting!
We will be running a rally competition alongside the Sports tournament. If you sign up for the Sports Tournament you will be automatically entered in the rally comp, although if you don't play it won't affect your Sports Tournament scores as these will be totally separate.
You will get one sports subject rally each day for the five days. These will be in the subjects:
Infostrada Wall of Fame
Olympic Gold Medallists
Cricket - ICC Hall of Fame
Tennis - US Open Men's Singles Champions
Sports Terminology

The winner will be the person with the highest total for the 5 rallies. Scores will not be capped.

In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition. We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours on the last day of a challenge. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches.
The Tournament referee and her line umpire volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results as these are updated manually. Please send a private message to JMK or Javalyne if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by Tournament referee and her line umpire are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
So…
Invite other members to come and play! Let’s see a spirit of fun and lots of friendly comments in the brainoffs. Remember - it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.
