    2024 Multi Sport Competition

    2024 Multi-Sport - Google Sheets
    Google spreadsheet above with all the events, think everyone should have access to this.

    Here are the first 22 events (more to come in July, estimate 45 in total)
    I haven't got around to finding start dates for every event yet, but the one that matters is GAA League One on Saturday 27th January.
    I'll pit these into a Google Spreadsheet on Friday evening, as I know some people prefer that.

    All initial selection to be made by 6.30pm on Saturday 27th January (the day/time the GAA NFL League 1 starts). A bit earlier would be great so I can post the selections before the start.
    Gives you 10 days, ample. You can continue to make unlimited changes until the start date, so there's no downside to getting an entry in early (says he optimistically)

    Send them in any format, spreadsheet, text, semaphore – I'll work it out.
    1. Mayo
    2. Cavan
    3 Clare etc

    You can send me selections by any of the following methods.
    A private message here on IPB.
    A private message on boards.ie, username there is armaniJeanss.
    Or email me your selections to multisportcomp@gmail.com

    I'll add more events during the first week in July to get to 45ish events.
    Watch out for....
    Event 7 is the EPL Last Place at the end of the year, not the season. So needs a bit of thought.

    Changes throughout year.
    Five changes can be made to events, up to 5 days before the start date of that event.
    I'll update event deadlines on the thread throughout the year.

    Official results on the End Date of each event will count, subsequent disqualifications are ignored.

    Where an event has playoffs or a final following a league phase (e.g. Basketball, Aussie Rules) then the results of the final are what matters.
    If any events end in a tie for first or for places then relevant points will be split.
    Any disagreements on events winners or points I'll ask 3 non-involved members of IPB to decide.

    Entry Fee & Prize money.
    Entry €50. I'll pm my bank account to participants.

    ~75% first, ~25% second.​

          There's a google spreadsheet in the first post now, if people find that easier to work with.

                Received entries from limpwhacker, Keane, luckforsome, and I'm done also. Rigger tells me he is on the way.

                GAA NFL starts us off at 5.30pm tomorrow (Saturday). So 24 hours to get organised. Took me 10 minutes to put together my entry so no lack of time excuses (albeit my poor record suggests I need to think a little better)

                Just going to tag a few people who indicated they would go again (not legally binding, always free to chance your mind) Strewelpeter, pokerhand, Lao Lao RichieM

                And tagging a few regulars who didn't indicate they'd go again, perhaps scarred by failure. Be positive, Colin Montgomerie would never have won a major if he had that defeatist attitude.
                shrapnel, Solksjaer!

                And tagging a few ex-champs to see if they still have what it takes premierstone, mdoug

                        Received entries from limpwhacker, Keane, luckforsome, RichieM, Strewelpeter, Lao Lao and me.
                        So 7 so far, hopefully pick up a few more between now and 5.30.
                        Will update them all in the google spreadsheet at some stage this evening.
                        May not be back on before 5.30 so for transparancy in the first event (GAA League 1) I'm unsurprisingly on The Dubs.

                            Received from defending champ Rigger and former champ pokerhand.
                            So looking like a reasonably healthy 9 going to the starting post. Still 40 minutes for any late joiners.

                              Google Spreadsheet updated with all your selection. Please check I've everything correct (not easy to catch every PM with such a terrible vbulletin messaging system)
                              2024 Multi-Sport - Google Sheets

                              9 Entrants so €450.
                              Think I want to keep something for second place so how about 1st €330, 2nd €120.

                              Will send bank details to people next weekend.​

                                And the first 'leaderboard'.
                                I find it impossible to come up with a hurling event that has a big spread of selections, really thought I had it nailed this year

                                  Not much variety in the selections... You would think most of them were two horses events.
                                  No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity, but I know none, therefore am no beast.

                                      Meh, I'm far more easy going than I was when I started this in 201x.
                                      See no real reason you couldn't get an entry in tomorrow.
                                      Probably have to limit your GAA Football League selection to the 4 teams who lost their first game though, would be a bit unfair otherwise to pick Mayo or Derry etc who all won.

                                          Bit of a slow start as always but should have a few results coming in over the next few weeks.
                                          Durwan Van de Merwe looking like an inspired anti-Penaud pick by Richie in the 6NTTS, Derry looking good for limpwhacker in the GAA NFL1 and Kilkenny (AJ, SP) doing better than Cork (everyone else) in the hurling league - all of these should end by the end of the month with the rugby first on St Patricks weekend..

                                              6 Nations Top Try Scorer

                                              The RTE rugby bods kept referring to Dan Sheehans 6 tries, but the official site has him down for 5 . Guinness Men's Six Nations Statistics - 2024 - Guinness Men's Six Nations (sixnationsrugby.com)
                                              I'll go with the official result.

                                              1st Dan Sheehan, Duhan van der Merwe. 3 points - RichieM.
                                              3rd James Lowe. 1 point - no-one.
