Well this has been running since 96 or 97 and there were no "sites" to use.
It's e-mail and spreadsheet.
My pick gets sent out to all before I open the e-mail and record the picks.

It has been brought up about sites that could run this but I have not found one.

In the 15+ years I have been running this Ihave "cashed" 1 time. I split an entry with a co corker and he and another guy decided to split when it got to the 2 of them.

Total prize that year was $800 and I would up with $200.

I do get 1 free entry each year and and money won by that entry goes to a charitable fund.
This year is it going to the "Jason and Hannah Brazil Scholorship Fund" started after a co-worder of my wife passed away in May.

If someone knows of a site that will hold 120 or more entries I would look into this. I am the one that would benefit the most from this. It's a LOT of work.

Jon does a great job with this. No sites needed to host it

fishtaco02 07-26-2012 12:50 PM

Is the pick 'em based on a list or can we choose the teams? Is it straight up winner or goes by the spread?

jlzinck 07-26-2012 01:09 PM

[QUOTE=gman71;3033456]Jon does a great job with this. No sites needed to host it[/QUOTE]

Thank you sir....did you get the e-mail I sent last night about this years pool??

[QUOTE=fishtaco02;3034073]Is the pick 'em based on a list or can we choose the teams? Is it straight up winner or goes by the spread?[/QUOTE]

You pick 1 team straight up in week 1.
You win you move to week 2.
You tie or lose you are out.
You can only pick each team once.

you just pick a team who you think will win that week, once used you cannot use team again throughout season

last one standing wins
