I'm allowed to take this question as GB are the initials of my real name! :)

I reckon take a year out and in two years time really try to drive recruitment. Two years should be long enough for some of the jadedness to fade and some kind of enthusiasm to return.

I'm gonna give maarts first dibs on starting a comp., as he was the first to float the idea of a '90s Cup last year, and there were a few interested in that one.
I'd like to do a Soul one, maybe just further down the track.

THERE IS ONLY ONE BCB GB.

I think taking a year off would be a good idea. I really think there is cup burn out at the moment.

I'm not convinced that changing the format again will make any real difference but we also have to accept that there is simply less interest in the cup.

I agree.

I'm not going to start any Cups for a while.
If you feel the need to do a Soul Cup in April, go ahead Ange.

We'll see how we go. I'll test the waters again in April, see how the enthusiasm levels are going.

90s Cup! 90s Cup! 90s Cup!
Looking at the YY first page, it could be a glimpse into the future.

In the annual Cup, yeah (altho it didn't take quite so long to scrape 32 players together this time).

Maybe it's just my impression but there seems to be more enthusiasm for the song-v-song format these days.....we had 3 or 4 back-to-back last year, and I don't think I saw any burnt-out talk. It's a small group, granted - about 20 innit usually?


Of course this is all moot if our 2 most generous hosts aren't keen. I'm fine with that.

I don't know ... seems like everyone's a bit burnt out. And more would like to do the '90s one. I'll wait a few more weeks and see.

I could run a poll and check how many would be interested in this.
