Venue for this Wednesday will be Turf Paradise Races 2 thru 9

Post Time 3:30 EDT but we will be starting with Race 2 so its a little later.

Scorer ... Oldowan

Sorry for the original choice of Thistledown. The ever vigilant Ruffian pointed out that it may rain and snow there Wednesday and as we all know cats hate to get wet so we'll play elsewhere.

ATTENTION PLAYERS ----- :o

PER THE PHONE OPERATOR INFO

====> ARIZONA IS MOUNTAIN TIME NOT PACIFIC

****** HOWEVER *******

THEY DO NOT CHANGE CLOCKS WHEN MOST STATES DO

THEREFORE THEY REMAIN ON STANDARD TIME
NOT DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME AS MOST ARE NOW

SO THEIR POST TIME WOULD BE SAME AS PACIFIC TIME NOW

CONFUSED YET? :roll:

SO CONSIDER THEIR POST TIME AS PACIFIC TIME START WITH R2
MT 1 Hour Later
CT 2 Hour Later
ET 3 Hour Later

POST PER RACE 2 TIME...NOT RACE 1
:twisted:

Cigarshop ships into Turf Paradise in the still of the night. For the past two weeks, I can't even break wind.
After my 4/5 2nd place finishes I'm trying to get into form just in time for the Breeders Cup.

I want my Tiger Dancer back and soon... If this issue isn't resolved by next Weds then I'm not participating until she and the rest of our GANG can post.


Race 2: 3-5-4
Race 3: 4-1-2
Race 4: 5-6-7
Race 5: 1-6-2
Race 6: 4-1-6
Race 7: 2-6-5
Race 8: 1-6-5
Race 9: 5-2-7

THE ISSUE IS BEING WORKED ON BUT HELP

CONTACTING VICTORIA COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

I'm on the same page with Cigar! It's just not fun anymore....people can't post, my career with posting graphics is over....sucks! Holy Crap....did they drag these horses out of a nursing home or something? With their ages, I have my fingers crossed that they ALL come across the wire safe. And I think we should include the QH's...what's up with the discrimination? LOL

WE ARE ALL FRUSTRATED...CRANKY....DISGRUNTLED
AND MAKING GRUMPY CAT LOOK LIKE HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY

BUT IN TODAY'S WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY ==> "STUFF" HAPPENS! :roll:

AS WITH ANYTHING IN LIFE
CHALLENGES COME ALONG

IT'S HOW WE HANDLE THEM THAT SHOW OUR CHARACTER
WE CAN WHINE OR RUN AWAY
OR
WE CAN STAY STRONG AND DETERMINED TO FACE IT AND WIN

SO FAR OUR FORUM FAMILY HAS PROVEN TO STAY STRONG AND SEE IT THRU
AS EVIDENCED BY PLAYERS CONTINUING TO SHOW UP

YES WE ALL FEEL LIKE VENTING OUR FRUSTRATION
WHICH WON'T HELP SOLVE THE TECHNOLOGICAL CAUSE

WHAT MIGHT HELP IS THAT ANYONE WITH COMPUTER SAVVY BACKGROUND
OFFER HELP & SUGGESTIONS TO VICTORIA / ADMINISTRATION / SERVER

THANKS TO ALL OUR FAITHFUL PLAYERS WHO ARE HOLDING ON
LETS HOPE WE RETURN TO OUR VERSION OF "NORMAL" SOON! :lol:

TIGER DANCER - REPLY:

Bon Jour Monsieur CigarShop
Tis Moi....... The Dancing Tiger........
Just wanted to reach out and send a personal Hello.

A "little birdie"...... ok ..... more like a Loud Mouthed Ruff-Zilla,
told me some of the things you have posted.
I had no idea I was so missed ;-) The Tiger Dancer is quite flattered!!

I too am so aggravated over this entire situation.
Grrrrrrrrrrrr
This is a crime and a travesty!!!!!!!
The TBC World is being deprived of ME!!!!!
That's just not right ;-)

I just don't understand why either it can't be fixed.... or move the whole
things to a new host / site!!!!
But SOMETHING must be done!!!

Also..... Many Thanks (Purrrrrs-n-Chufffs) for the
Gorgeous Roses....... Champagne.....etc.....
Nice Touch!!! Have a Purrrfect Day

I will be in the gate today...... but I will have to email my post to Ruff.
At least she still has access to the site --
(Thanks Ruff for taking care of all of us ;-)

"Sorry for the original choice of Thistledown.

Hey RQ ...... FYI: Tigers LOVE the water and usually do quite well in it ;-)

"Hows the view this week Tigger? <grin>
Ooooppppssss, I forgot that you've been banned from the board for excessive filly "smack talk"!"

Hey RQ...... You know you miss me and my "Smack Talk" ;-)
And I'm not the only one talking SMACK around here!!

****************************************

OK.......BACK TO "WORK"
I MISS EVERYONE!!!!

WE ARE THOROUGHBRED CHAMPIONS

NOT QUARTER HORSE
NOT ARABIAN
NOT WATERHORSE
NOT HARNESS
NOT DRESSAGE
NOT SEAHORSE

THAT'S WHY WE DO NOT INCLUDE OTHER BREED RACES IN CONTESTS
NEVER HAVE
THAT RULE WAS IN PLACE PRIOR TO MY JOINING

IN THE FUTURE
ONCE WE REGAIN POSTING STATUS FOR ALL
WE CAN DO A POLLING VOTE REGARDING

TO INCLUDE OR NOT TO INCLUDE OTHER HORSE BREEDS IN CONTESTS

TILL THEN WE REMAIN THOROUGHBRED CHAMPIONS :twisted:

RULES ARE CREATED FOR A REASON
HERE IS MINE

NO EDITING OF ORIGINAL ENTRY
CHANGES MUST BE IN NEW POST

WHY?

BECAUSE I RECORD PLAYER'S ENTRY SOON AFTER POSTED

I AM NOT GOING TO GO BACK TO EACH PLAYER'S PIX
LATER IN THE DAY WHEN I DO RESULTS TO SEE IF
SOMEONE CHANGED SOMETHING IN THEIR ENTRY

AS SOON AS A NEW POST IS MADE
I GET EMAIL NOTIFICATION OF IT
I THEN CHECK AND RECORD THE NEW ENTRY
OR A NEW POST REGARDING A CHANGE

IT'S A TIME CONSUMING JOB
I DO IT TWICE A WEEK EVERY WEEK
EVEN AS BACK UP IN MIDWEEK
JUST AS A DOUBLE CHECK THAT TOTALS ARE CORRECT

SO THAT IS WHY ALL CHANGES ARE IN A NEW POST
TIME MANAGEMENT
:evil:

VERY DISHEARTENING TO SEE ONLY 8 IN THE GATE :cry:

ESPECIALLY SINCE OUR LAST CONTESTS MAINTAINED
GOOD ENTRY NUMBERS IN SPITE OF THE TECH NIGHTMARE

HOPEFULLY OUR USUAL PLAYERS DO NOT GIVE UP
AND RETURN TO PLAY ON SATURDAY

IF I DO NOT GET RESULTS FROM OLDOWAN VIA EMAIL
I WILL GO AHEAD AND POST THEM

REPORT ANY ERRORS TO ME
GRUMPY CAT HAS MORE BLONDE MOMENTS THAN HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY CAT :twisted:
