    Everyone support the Bears!

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    D'oh!

    Everyone must support Warwickshire in their final NUL game on Sunday (or pray for rain)

    If they win (or get rained off) they will finish 3rd, and that will complete 3 legs of a Yankee I did at the start of the season (picked Gloucester for NUL Div 2 and Somerset for the recent knock-out) and win me a fair wodge of cash!

    Halfway stage - Nice knock from the Bears 275-9 - not sure about the batting order though, Tony Frost (reserve keeper who's been playing as a specialist batsman at number 3 in the CC) came in at number 11 behind Keith Piper (first choice keeper).

    Michael Powell came in at 8!

    For the other rivals for 3rd spot - the main one are Kent, if they win and we lose then that's it, but they conceded 299-3 against Yorkshire (another rival, but a negative NRR so not so big a problem)

    Leicester conceded 255-8 against Worcester.

    On the whole, I'd say the bet is looking promising at this stage.

    Irrelevant for top 3 anyway!

    I believe that overall, the Bears have had the best season of any county.

    No I have to disagree with you there.

    My vote goes to Essex

    - Champions of Div 2 (County Champ)
    - Promoted to Div 1 (NUL)
    - Final of B&H Cup
    - 1/4 finals of C&G Cup

    It was 10-1, and I had it each way (5-1 to reach the final)
