    Trying to come up with a formula to model drinking done at contests. Felt that the biggest factors were time between playing and results and where you came in the results, ie winners and losers drink more than mediocre middle finishers. First approximation is:

    Modulus (x-median finish) + 2h

    where x is your position and h is the hours from playing to result. Need to factor in other variables and need data on how much people drank at Butlins!

    you also need to factor price and quality of beer, I must say that I thought the lager at Butlins was horrific, which is why I moved on to Alcopops, but I can drink them all day and night and not feel a thing

    Frank Renton remarked when introducing Redbridge this morning, that a number one draw can make it an expensive day ;)
  5. But do northerners drink more than southerners?

    No probs. think you also need to factor in the instrument played and the amount of money you've just won... What fantastic prize money, pity we were nowhere near the prizes... actually we were only one place off winning the fourth section :eek:
