    I may have a decent idea but there are a few going on at the moment so best to wait until they're finished.

    Yeah best to wait until at least the Quiz one is over. I won't be running anything until the Auction one finishes as I intend to do it on an Auction basis again.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Would anyone be interested in starting a quiz draft, where the quiz questions are under various different subjects and not just cricket. I would have done it but I don't get much time during the weekdays.


    However I will have time after June so if no one steps up, will do it then.

    I am not getting many ideas yet for the draft though.. Trying to see if we can get something to start up a draft.. I have wanted to run a draft for a long time now.

    I was thinking of a quiz draft where each person involves submits a question at least for the first round and once the order is set, it rotates throughout the process where The person who picks last in the first round starts the second round first and drops a position each round. This way there doesn't have to be any one person in charge and the drsft flows each round.

    Let me know what you guys think, or how it could be tweaked.

    I would also be interested though in joining any up coming draft.

    Think it leaves it open for a lot of maneuvering though, doesn't it?

    I think we can start something up once the quiz draft is done. Eds can do the next one.

    I have an idea for a military draft. Everyone will be forced to make a pick

    I am keen for a draft for sure. If there is a format everyone is keen on, I will give running it a shot, too.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
