I see that the Chicks are off to another roaring start in logging practice minutes. Yessiree. I don't think the Dudes have ever come close to whipping the Chicks.

For those of you new to the board, we have a practice log. You can join and keep track of your minutes spent practicing. Just for fun, the practice log totals your minutes, shows you your PW ranking, and sorts you into Chicks or Dudes.

And the Chicks *always* win by averaging more minutes in the month than the Dudes. Because as we all know, Dudes can't practice piano and swill beer at the same time! \:D

It's June 1 already. Hurry, there's still time to see how much practicing we can do in June. . . .

CHICKS RULE!

You too Monica. Ok, this month I am[/b] going to log my minutes instead of just writing them on my calendar!

Cindy, great smily!

We're here, and we're playing it low key. Euan!! Where are you buddy? I notice there's a healthy smattering of blokes on the Practice Log already, so you might get more than you bargained for.

As for you Frycek, I've decided I don't believe ANY of those hours unless I can see what you're working on. \:\) Some more text please!

I'm there - about 130 minutes so far! I'm logged on as euan123 for some reason, can't remember why.

Lets go guys! - only about 20 minutes behind. And I've still got a good evening's practice ahead of me \:\)

You had better bow before Frycek! Or I'll send my killer dog (a small but ferocious bischon) after you. \:D

But, if any chicks are reading this, I have to get a new password to get into my practice log.

All right, I just registered for the club.

You girls are about to get a run for your money. I had nearly 6 hours under the belt last Saturday alone. Get ready to kiss that title goodbye ladies!

What is the official measuring tool for Chicks vs Dudes - is it Total Time, or Average Time?

Because if it is Total Time - the Dudes are winning by a long way!


(...and we will be winning by even more when Andrew signs up to the squad! \:\) )

Yeah, I know why. I didn't enter my time until about 11 last night, so I wasn't showing up in the list. I just checked. I'm in there now. Apparently we have a couple new "dudes" as well. So the counts are going up!

The dudes would lose big time if I joined! But I am hoping to get my bmus in piano performance, so I don't think I would count, as all I do IS practice!

If I do count, and you do need help, feel free to let me know. \:\)

Just started on a three day layoff on Voltaren due to left elbow pain that has been developing for awhile. Not fair, I'm only 39 and already partly crippled! So, I still classify myself as MOYD but my numbers won't be moving upwards for awhile. Damn. This could be the break those female-types needed.

Holy smokes, Chicks. We're getting smoked!

Frycek, *do* something! \:D

Seriously, it's on now. I'm finished with my recital, the kids are out of school, the yard is as weeded as it's gonna get, so I am ready to put in some serious practice time for the rest of June.

Ha ha - it is starting to look rather embarassing for the ladies! \:\)

To be fair, I think this month both myself (euan123) and Andrew (Shortcircuit85) signed up for the dudes, and we have both contributed a good amount for the team. Otherwise it might have been a little bit more even.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing Euan. I didn't want to rub it in though. I figured the ladies would be a bit embarrased as it is. I mean, if they didn't have Frycek doing all their practice for them, I guess they would be lost. \:D By the way, Frycek, I tried to keep up with your for the first week. I soon concluded you aren't human! Wow, you log some serious time! I will contently take 2nd or 3rd. \:D

Oh, Just remember, we didn't start it!

Is anyone else having trouble with the practice log webpage, it won't load up here, times out....I don't have that many minutes to add, but every little bit counts!

EDIT: It's working now!

In a couple more days, the dudes will have posted TWICE as many minutes as the ladies.

(not that we're gloating or anything \:\) )

Yeah, I have to confess to logging some pedestrian hours this month after an idealistic beginning. I still think the boys will spank the girls though. Euan has just exploded!

um, I went camping for the weekend, and I didn't have a piano. I'm counting today as still an away day, since I just got home and have a huge headache.

But tomorrow you're in trouble!
