Tesco Butter Beans In Water, 400g.

Post by Redbeard » Sun Nov 22, 2020 10:55 am

Yes, desperate times call for desperate measures. The proven Ancient Rite of Tinned Food Counting returns to this forum - and not before time, according to some. In this way, since we cannot physically attend tomorrow's game, we can still have some bearing on the eventual match result.

In order to help invoke the ritual's mystical powers in support of the team, then, Counters both new and old are requested within the 18-hour period between 11am today and 5pm tomorrow to enter carefully-considered estimates as to a. the number of beans and b. the amount of residual liquid (in millilitres) contained in my tin. Brief incantations made when posting your individual guesses may enhance their effectiveness and foster additional likelihood of a long-awaited first win of the season.

There wiil be points too, of course, for the winning estimates. Good luck everyone - now let's go for it! :D

Excellent stuff Red.

Made me smile just looking at the thread title, it’s the small things always.

114 beans

67ml juice.

Butter beans though, should be consigned to room 101.

Congrats on the first entry of perhaps a new Counting era, Mr TT. :D

May it help indeed to ensure that the club remains 'Top Tier'. 8-)

Hopefully this might entice 1959-60 back to the board to mastermind another assault on Padiham.

Tarkys, you have entered the same liquid value as has BigF.

This means that any personal points won will be shared between the two of you.

You may yet reconsider, however.

What happened to our friend 1959-60, I used to love reading his posts.
I could quite easily cheat as I have the subject in matter currently stocked in my cupboard.
Butter Beans are great in a home made broth or soup alongside some leftover ham or Meat Pie & Butter Beans with mint sauce. Mmmmmmm.

Sorry, Frank, but no. Two Counts cannot be held for the same match. Besides which I have allowed the official maximum of 18 hours' entries for this particularly important one.

Dyched - With regard to your inclusion of two half-units, I must point out that they cannot be considered.

The rules do stipulate that any partial unit bigger than half should be Counted whilst any smaller than half is not. However, you have already estimated at 123, and cannot be allowed as it were an extra guess besides.

Redbeard, I havn't read the rule book but I trust that the rules are unchanged from previously, in that the person in charge of the count ie.yourself will make the final decision and that no recounts will be necessary.

That’s fine. I hope the inclusion of my estimate of 1 tin, 1 tin lid will count in my favour if I’m locked in a tie break for the win.
