This week I will have it sorted, however I would like some feedback for increasing the fees.

Any objections for going to a $40 entry fee?

$35 of that goes to the pot (1st gets 80%, 2nd gets 20%-$20, 3rd gets $20) while $5 goes towards administration.

Would make for a much higher payout if we still got the numbers we have the last couple of years (over 30).

Please post here.

Cheers,

~Regs.

Fine

My accountant, otherwise known as my wife, has no objections to the higher entry fee.

Good to go.

3rd place $25

Ties:

In the event of ties, the player with the least amount of games played will finish higher.

How to pay:

It is your responsibility to make sure payment is received by stated payment deadlines above. Your stats will not appear until payment is received in full.

History:

We've had around 30 entries per year when doing this on TTP and I would expect the same or more this year. The higher entry fee will ensure a much greater payout that was in the neighborhood of $575 last year (you can do the math).

How to submit picks:

http://www.poolexpert.com
Pool Name: TTPhockey
Password: takethepiss

You'll need to register an account there... for our pool, put your TTP Username in the "first name" field and leave the last name field blank (if possible).

That's it... post any dificulties or questions you may have here.

Cheers,

~Regs.

I suppose until the first day of the season, ie, October 9th.

To be honest, I'm not sure if you'll be able to change your picks on your own but you can always pm/email me the round number and who to change and I can do it.

Cheers,

~Regs.

So we have 12 so far that have said I'm in... assuming they all stick to their original plans that means the 1st place pot is up to $336

Kurgan, Hammerhead, HOS, Dude, Jinky... you guys gonna try your luck again this year?

Cheers,
