Re: COHUD 2016 - Countdown In Huddersfield - Saturday 8th October 2016

Buongiorno from Italy. :)

It's been a while since I last updated on here, but COHUD is now up to 15 attendees thanks to the inclusion of our back-to-back defending champion, Jack Worsley.

Just 23 days to go now :!: :!:

Yeah, I had that too. Call it lazy editing... :P

Re: Spoilers for 8/10 Cats Does Countdown Friday 2nd September 2016

It's about time we had a spoilers thread for one of these. And here it is - four days late. The conundrum scramble was BADGROINS. The "solution" was BOARDINGS, which arguably isn't even valid - BOARDING is a mass noun and it's not on Apterous. And yet ADSORBING and SIGNBOARD are both there. I think...

TIA
Hey Jayne,

I believe October 24 will now be the start of Series 76, with the Series 75 finals being recorded on October 11/12.

Unfortunately, I won't be there... :(

Sounds impressive if true. Trust it to be a person from Huddersfield to do the job. ;) :) :D

Re: Spoilers For Monday September 5th 2016

Thanks guys, Amazing experience (much better than my flunked attempt in 1997!) and although I probably should have been nudging a 900 total watching it back again, I'll definitely take 8 wins out of 8 every day of the week! :) You were great fun throughout, Martin. My mum says I should take some cr...

Spoilers For Monday September 5th 2016

Well, today could be the beginning of a joyous moment, and also a bit of a sad one too... Martin Hurst is on for his 8th win today, which will more than likely propel him to #1 on the rankings.... But, unfortunately, there are only 3 shows of Countdown this week, and NONE at all next week, due to Ch...
