OK, who feels like playing a game?
As you know, Simon is entered in three days of Rally starting on Thursday. I thought it might be fun to play a game and try to guess his combined score for all three days. Whoever gets the closest will win ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Or, if I don't have a million dollars by then, you will win bragging rights and the title of "Mr/s. Wizard," which you can proudly display in your signature.
How it works: In Rally, a perfect score is 100. You must score at least a 70 to qualify. So, if you think Simon will have a perfect score all three days (ha), your guess would be "300." If you think he will scrape through just by the skin of his teeth, your guess would be "210." Make sense?
A little info to help you make an educated guess: Thursday will only be Simon's third time in a Rally ring. He has never been to a crowded show, so who knows what effect that will have on him. OTOH, he is very obedient and very good about listening to commands such as "Leave it." I don't anticipate losing him and not being able to get him back. He can do all the Novice exercises, but we do a lot of bumping into each other on left 360s and 270s. Angus' Rally scores were 88, 88 and 100. I will be without my dog caddy/SU on Thursday and Friday, so this may play into it as well.
Let the games begin!!! :P

265...I think you'll be nervous first time with him so an 83, a 92 and then a 90

86, 92, & 92 = 270
but hoping I am way too low
I think you're going to do much better than you think. 274.
Wait, wrong game.
291. I foresee a couple of tight leash dings, nothing worse.
Well, if we're all wrong, then dweck's original bid wins.
I'm guessing 294 (97, 98, 99)...steady improvement over the weekend. ;D
Good luck, Simon and Connie!
Linda and Zoë, the Umlaut
I'll go with 82, 94, and 97 for a total of 273. Good luck!
