      I meant to enter this basho, but we had visitors and I totally forgot :-(  I will try next basho.  We are moving back to Japan next August so it will be a lot easier for me to follow sumo.  I can't wait to get back.  England is very nice, but I miss Japan terribly...

      yeah - SAKURA is still alive and will NEVER die.
      kamogawa missed the deadline as well, despite me telling him 7 days before..... arrrrgh
      I'm positive on one more newbie for kyushu basho, lets keep fingers crossed.
      Unfortunately I will start a new job soon, so my free time will be less, but hey... one always finds a few minutes for bench !

      howdy all,

      i'm back actually participating in my first bench basho in a good long while, i mean actually participating. looks like things in chabo's world are calming down a bit, and hopefully this can be more of a regular occurrence. i've said things like that before though, so we'll see.

      so, what i've done is i've gone and checked who else is currently benching, and it looks like we're pretty darn small these days, for active folks. to the tune of 4 this basho. 

      active sakurans are:


      saruyama juuuuust missed the deadline, so he's out for this basho. chibi is showing increasing interest, and i'll call her a 50/50 for november. but then, with my recent attendance rates, i can't be considered anything above that myself. 

      i'm not sure when the last participation was for the others. do any other still consider themselves active participants in the game? rannohana? k-jo? sarunojima? kamogawa? daifuku? anyone else who's been gone longer?

      holler back if you're still alive in the world of sakura/bench
