Well now that i've finaly got round to sending out the Details (anyone who's not yet got them please e-mail me) i've another thing to bring up.

On to the reason for this post

Towards the end of last year one of the anglers that fished the 2002 series approached me and offered to put up a Pair's Trophy for this years series.

I wont mention who as i'll leave it to the person in question to come forward if he wants to [:I]

The only critiera put forward for said trophy is that an angler of lesser ability is paired with an angler with greater ability so as to help improve the ability of the lesser angler.

(if that makes any sence)[;)]

In other words good angler with not so good angler.

Only problem with this is we have 25 anglers not good for a pairs series [:0]

Also this year we have many new faces that each of know nothing about.

So what i'm after is your suggestions as to how we can work this.

So come on all suggestions welcome and i'm sure between us all we can sort something out.[:D][:D][:D]

ROLL ON MAY

Hi Malc, how about fishing the first three matches as normal and the fish the 'pairs' matches for the last two. The pairs could be decided by the relevant positions on the leaderboard[?]

Malc,

What about a blind pairs event where you do not know who youre partner is.

Step 1 chose 2 venues
Step 2 fish the matches
Step 3 all names in the hat
Step 4 draw pairs
Step 5 Add total weight of pairs together
Step 6 announce winner
Step 7 give the trophy to a cokehead/s.

Just a suggestion

Keith,

I don't agree with your logic - it is certainly not intended to be a trophy for the cokeheads benifit.

Hows about taking Matts idea but just using the first two events. I know this is likely to put a little more luck in but what the hell.

Cheers Dave & Geoff,

Always thought i was a step higher in the chain (linx) than the rest [;)][:D][;)][:D][;)]

Keith,

The "CokeHeads" have a lot to live up to this year [:)] especialy a certain part time angler with 2/1 odds [;)][:D][;)]

Malc and all.

We ARE happy with Matts idea.Its just that you asked for suggestions and i gave one.I did not say pick it.

As for pressure,there aint none as we have no reputation to follow.Yes we did well last year but good pegs at the right time helped.Anyone of you could have caught off those pegs and may have had more.We could have been on your pegs and struggled.Thats why we go fishing.

Cokeheads are looking forward to the matches ahead and we are doing our homework on the venues.But this does not mean we will win it.
Steve W came third in the overall stakes if it were on points last year and he is a serious dark horse.Dave Moore knows how to bag.Lee mays showed he can catch fish,Scott bucked the trend and heads down for silvers when all around were catching carp winning the match.What i am saying is good luck to all who fish the series and the best angler will win given the right draws and good fortune.Just hope its a cokehead.

Ok, for the problem of 25 anglers. This is only an idea, but how about the angler who is currently leading the series fishing in 2 pairs. For example, angler A is top of the table, anglers B and C haven't been so succesful. The 2 pairs would be A & B and A & C. The points/weight that angler A catches will be paired with those of both B and C
Does this make sense to anyone[?]

Right, bear with me on this.
The top angler (A) is fishing as part of 2 pairs. (A & C and A & B)
angler A catches 30lbs or 1 point
B catches 20 lbs or 3 points
C catches 10 lbs or 5 points
The result for pair A & B would be 50 lbs or 4 points
The result for A & C would be 40lbs or 6 points.
( its getting like those maths textbooks at school
lol)
This is using the top scoring anglers weight/points to contribute to 2 pairs. This is the only way i can think of fishing a pairs series with an odd number of anglers.
This probably doesn't make anymore sense so i can try to explain it better when we meet up at castle ashby [:D]

Matt,

you lost me too. and I've got a b....y maths degree. Here's how it should be done. Draw from a hat on day 1 seeded so no cokehead can fish with another. 25th Man out plays with himself points doubled. OK

Right this is easy.

I will volunteer to drop out of the pairs event.This leaves 24 anglers to be divided into pairs.How you do it is up to you.

Keith, you shouldn't have to do that, i'm sure that we can all come to an agreement with regards to a way in which every one can take part.

OK the part time matchman is back [:D][:D] i have set my comeback date for rolfs lake on MARCH 1st so look out cuz the catmeat king is back [8D][8D][8D]

Now time for my suggestion for the pairs competition as you lot already know i have compiled a list of everybody and i have given them odds [}:)] why not use this list as a grading system and pair off top with bottom and 2nd top with 2nd bottom and so forth
I think that it should be done on a points system with 25 for 1st 24 for 2nd and so on with nil points for a DNW
The pairings would be as follows

ME---LEE
GINGER---DAVID ASHBY
VIC---PETE
STEVE---ANDY WOODS
EJAYAR---POLEPOT
LURCHER---SNAKEY
MATT---SCOTT
KEITH---ANT
PAUL---CHURT
MALC---PAUL ROBERTS
ANDY STEVENS---DAVID LLOYD
DAVE MOORE---TIM WESTMORELAND
JIMMY--????????
because JIMMY is the odd one out i think that his points total should be doubled at each match to find out his pairs total

Lets see what you lot thiink of this then
