Let's replace a DELWP-CSIRO orienteering challenge with a dance off! I can't quite comprehend how something that looks so easy is so hard!

Is the Bureau invited to this one? (and maybe DELWP-CSIRO could put in a combined team for the Priestley Cup soccer tournament - usually features the Bureau, CSIRO, Melbourne and Monash, but CSIRO have struggled to field a team in recent years after Larry Marshall gave a few too many free transfers in the 2016 off-season).

Haha I’ll need a lot more sessions to get to dance-off standard!
Great idea Blair - we failed to have a team last time but maybe with DELWP we’d manage.

Bring it on...though my soccer skills are probably at a similar level to my dancing skills!

My usual role at this event is to run around a lot after the ball and hope no-one notices that I can't do anything with it once I get it.

So Blair - would that be the "tap and go" strategy?

Uncle JiM:
When I played Hockey, my role was much the same. Run were ever you like, in the hope that the other team would tag you with one of there players

That was the strategy i used in my netball team when I had a REALLY weak player. Just told her to run to where her opponent wasn't (she'd never be effective against the other/better player anyway). Then the opponent was chasing after her all the time. I overheard the other coach say - "stick with "her" stop letting her get away." "I'm trying - but she's just so fast". She wasn't.... at all! Used once - 100% success rate!

All sounds very similar to my ball sports skills.. no lack of enthusiasm for charging about though!
