    Captain's Required! - Fat Jockey Yankee's

    Hello all,

    As plenty of you know, we have a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Overall Fat Jockey Yankee each year that we have captains for that pick the final selections for THE WHOLE FORUM to back

    That means we need 5 captains.

    At we have MoM running the monthly yankee's, and focus should still be on the February one as it's an important one too, so we don't need to start these until Sat 29th/Sun 1st March however they do need somebody willing to take responsibility for them.

    The deadline for the all the yankee's is usually the Sunday before (will be 8th March). This is to allow people to see them, back them and still be able to live their life, as it is just a bit of fun



    To the point then
    - who will be our Captains?


    So, anyone got a hat to throw in to the ring?
    I can set up a poll if people like if we have loads of people?

    Open to any suggestions on how we narrow it down too...


    We'll announce the Captains on Sunday 23rd February... to give them a week to mentally prepare

    If we end up short of volunteers then I'll step up. Otherwise 4 people who haven't done this before sounds a good idea.

    Just went back to check who has done them before, I did the 'Overall' one in 2017

    I cannot describe how confident I was about this when I did it

    YANWORTH - CH - Day 1
    NEON WOLF - Neptune - Day 2
    YORKHILL - JLT - Day 3
    DEFI DU SEUIL - Triumph - Day 4



    Pretty close , stupid Willougby Court ruining everything.
    ...and a certain Buveur D'air punishing me.

    In all honesty I wouldnt be a good fit for this. As it's better to get others thoughts and the general consensus etc...
    where is I'd be them picking myself. And losing the fun of discussion.
