  1. Looks like you're all set to hammer the heck outta your 2013 score - and a full month and a half earlier in the year too! Looks to be a Wales v Scotland game, who knows the outcome? Not even close to half-time yet! :)

  2. Looks like my 2013 winning score of 1,406 is going to get seriously trashed this year, you're well ahead of where I was at this point. So long as you can stay the course and not get distracted as the year continues!

  3. 2K in a it possible? ;)

  4. Not got a nagging misses this time around (bliss)...more time in the field. :)
    Though work may start to get in the way shortly?
