# Discussion: Kew Gardens Challenge

Oct 28, 2017 1:27 AM
Here we come again.
Idea is quite similar to Rochester Challenge (still no burrito from Ian, but I will get him one day), yet different, ever so slightly.

The proposed participants all took part in "preferance " games in Kew Gardens some time ago, hence the name of this challenge.

The location: OUSA Classic Champs in two weeks.
BorisGr , DarthBalter and Z-man ( he agreed) will take part.

Scoring as follows:
BorisGr and Z-man have to guess the difference of their own time on Blue course each day and Darth's time on Green course.
Darth guesses difference between: day one Z-man and Day 2 - BorisGr.

Scores are calculated as last time: 100 points - mistake (either way), rounded to minutes.

Winner's prize is TBD (Ian, stay away!)

If my fantasy football record is any indication, I will lose this one like dog...

I never actually agreed to buy a burrito for the winner.

Just to make sure I understand: I guess the difference between my time and Darth's time each day? (That is, I am never guessing the difference between me and z-man, only me and Darth, right?) In that case, I am in.

yes, Boris, that is exactly right. it is just a fun guessing game :).
Predictions to be posted here no later than Friday, November 10, this year.
Any suggestions on a punishment for the winner?

The numbers from Darth are in:
day 1 -
Z-man (Blue) - Darth (Green X) = 23 min

Day 2 -
BorisGr (Blue) - Darth (Geen X) = 22 min

Just to remind you -
Z-man guesses the following:
Days 1 and 2 -
Z-man (Blue) - Darth (Green X) = ?

BorisGr guesses Days 1 and 2 -
BorisGr (Blue) - Darth (Green X) = ?

Helping info:
Blue Day 1 - 11.2 km, 285 m climb,
Blue Day 2 - 10.2 km, 300 m climb.
Geen X Day 1 - 6.6 km, 200 m climb,
Geen X Day 2 - 5.8 km, 185 m climb.

See you all soon.

Let's play a game! Day1 = 21min, Day2 = 20min.

Day1
BorisGr - Darth = 25

Day 2
BorisGr - Darth = 24

Also, Z-Man, you need to renew your OUSA membership!

Guys are you planning to attend US Team meeting? My guess would be yes, but I realize you may have some other commitments.

I am not committed to anything yet, but napping is in the books.

And the scores are in!
Darth scores 99 on day 1 and 99 on day two, for total = 198 (oh, he is so good, he is so good) :).
BorisGr scores 96 points on day 1 and 99 on day 2, for total of 195 ( and he is also so good (only once)).
Z-man scores 97 points on day 1 and 87 on day 2, for total of 184 (and he is ...., but we love him anyway).
Since we did not come up with the good punishment for the winner, I won free night at Ramada hotel (taken care already).

Ian you are not of the hook yet, your punishment is to set training courses in Harriman this Thanksgiving.

See you all soon!

Well done Darth, both in the woods and in the predictions! Time to move up to Blue, I think!
