See why I think competition is often unhelpful - even a fun thing like a regatta can end in rows about who won/cheated - do we really care?
More important things (IMHO) might be:
Did you have fun at the time?  lol
Did you learn anything from the experience?  ???
Did you upset anybody?  :'(
Did you make any new friends?  :)
Did you help someone feel better about themself?  8)

But did you win - come on ...  :(

well peter I knew the course there the best of anyone and erlier in the day that boat took a lot of wide corners and still manged to lap me about 2 time in about 3 of my laps....

Any I agree totally with peter here, Its the taking part that counts not the winning.

If everyone felt like that then I wouldn't have so much problem with competition - but in life (and it appears in Schome Park) this is not usually/often the case ...  :(

Now what would happen if rather than having competitions we had challenges - the only real difference being that in the former someone must loose in order for someone else to win whilst in the latter everybody can win ...  ???

Gar - you have the view I hate. How is competition bad? It is a good thing, as it shows not everything is easy and you need to fight for something. If not, you're gonna get a shock when you're older, cos there's no second place in a job application!!!

in races i know that i dont stand a chance so a go in for the taking part but i dont think a bit of healthy compation is a bad thing, but I do belive that competion is often taken to far and people need to get over coming second and acnolage that maybe they werent the person the company were looking for and given time there will be a job that fits the bill, in fact somtimes itworks better that way ;)
