Charlie Reams Looks like we've reached a fixed point with this.
Adam Gillard Not sure if James Hurrell has had a go at the Duckdown 15 yet; he could get a very good score there.
Chris Hare Anyone reasonably competent stands a decent chance of improving on my Bullet 15 score, I think.
Zarte Siempre I nearly did Chris. I was on for 139 until I clicked the wrong button on the numbers.
Gerry Tynan Like this. Could do with maybe having a couple of goes at it if it's over a long period of time.
Nick Deller Looks like the lesson for Aptathlon II is to hold back Adam/Innis etc to the last day and see which events have still got a lot of slack in them.
Charlie Reams Now you're seeing why it's a team game :)
Charlie Reams (And why you get five days to play!)
Heather Styles I agree with Nick: it would be good if the 'big guns' held back for a while. I think that this is likely to boost the team score, as well as perhaps encouraging, ahem, less experienced players (e.g. me!) to join in...
John Gillies Gutted. Should have got 148 for Jnr 15, but went for TIDDLE (which is invalid) instead of going for one of many fives available!
Andy Platt it's a sweet idea but I don't understand why it's being described as a 'team' event, perhaps I'm missing something?
Gerry Tynan Yeah Andy, I'm kind of the same. When I looked at it first I thought that members would be divided into teams and compete against other teams. Not sure how practical that would be though.
Charlie Reams Sigh.
Gerry Tynan Sorry Charlie. Hope that didn't come across as a complaint. It's an extra add on so can't have any quibbles.
Marcus Hares Don't sigh Charlie, it's refreshing to see some specialists on this board getting some recognition - I didn't make it on here this time but it'll make it all the more satisfying when/if I do! Good work

Nick Deller It's probably the subtle difference between a "team game" and a "team effort" that's initially confusing. Confused me, anyway. ;-)
Gevin Chapwell We're all one big team, right? And it's a game.
James Hurrell and then maybe the point is we try and improve our team score on the next effort.
Adam Gillard Is Aptathlon II scheduled for Pi Day / Red Nose Day Eve 2013?
Tracey Mills That should be fun then
