    Anyone want to join a $20 box pool?

    Post by Ev on Mon Sep 20, 2010 11:59 am

    Hey guys. Each year I take part in a box-style pool run by a lady at Health Canada. It's a box pool where you have to pick only 1 player out of 21 boxes (there are 5 choices in each box). After you pick all your players, you can NEVER change them throughout the season, so you gotta choose wisely. So usually a team with less injuries will win this pool!

    The scoring system is pretty simple. Forwards and D get 2 points for a goal, 1 point for an assist, and goalies get 1 point for a win.

    The cost of this pool is $20. The person running the pool would like to get as many entrants as possible so that there will be more money to give to the winners at the end of the season. Last year there was 55 entrants and the prize was about $800 to the winner and $300 to the runner-up, I'm not exactly sure though (since I didn't win Frustrated2 ).

    If anyone is in interested in joining or at least checking it out, let me know. The commish will welcome anybody to her pool!

    When do you need an answer by? I would do one with SG, but I have to ask her.

    Deadline to a submit a pool is midnight on October 5th.

    Plenty of time left, just getting a head start to see if anyone is interested.

    I think you would mail the $20 along with your picks to the address written on the sheet. I don't actually know the woman running it, my aunt just works in her building...so I don't directly pay the commish myself.

    Also, I'm not sure when the deadline is to pay, I think she asks for it near the end of the season.

    You can also e-mail here directly to ask about payment options, when to pay, etc.
