Like the Great British weather, SotD seems to be suffering a "summer" washout. The long anticipated (by us here at geegeez at least!) downturn has arrived and the three of us are trying our best to turn it around.
In our defence, July was the first loss-making month for over a year and whilst August has seen us drop another 4.37pts, it is only half-time and there are still plenty of chances to make up that deficit.
I won't bore you with lectures about bankroll, bank management, ups and downs etc, but suffice to say that we've endured worse spells than this and always come out on top. 2017 has been magnificent so far and despite the recent poor run, we're still very much ahead of the curve and I'm sure it won't be long before the next run of form.
