March Madness Squares

Unread postby pup » Wed Mar 10, 2010 10:03 am

Running a squares pool for the tournament. Pretty simple if you have never done one before. The last digit in the winners score and the last digit in the losers score determine the square winner.

$20 to get in.

Payouts - 1st round games, $10 per game. 32 games = $320
2nd round games, $20 per game, 16 games = $320
Sweet 16 games, $40 per game, 8 games = $320
Elite 8 games, $80 per game, 4 games = $320
Final 4 games, $160 per game, 2 games = $320
National Championship game, $400

Act quick.

Waborat and I are going to try and get this together but we have to hurry.

$20 to enter and we need a PM ASAP if you're in. Payouts and prizes as noted in Pup's original note.

Get friends and whoever else you want in it but make sure you can vouch for their entry fees.

Never done this one personally but its piqued my interest.

If it's a 'go' we'll pull numbers, scan in the sheet and provide a link for all who entered to make themselves a copy BEFORE games start Thursday.

Thanks

I love you man.

Keep it on the down low.

And work the winery magic while I work the phones. We're getting close to halfway home with zero from the boards and, specifically, the TCF Chairman of the Board who I KNOW has some degenerate friends and colleagues.

CDT better be getting $20 down too or I'm gonna be bent.

My IT guy is a white bread American boy. In an ironic twist, I can't afford and Indian IT expert.

So yes, it will be up soon and it will fill up quickly if anyone is debating it. I have probably 40+ commitments and Wabo is close to the same number if not above.

Looking forward to this pool.

The automated site for the squares is up at http://www.allcustomgear.com

If you're doing squares, after you pick them, go back to www.allcustomgear.com and hit the 'CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT YOUR POOL and/or SQUARES ENTRY FEES' button on the home page.

Good luck all.

Holy Shit.

There are only 16 squares remaining for the $20 NCAA Squares Pool.

Degenerate MFers.

Get in there now before it's locked down and gone.

I've already got $100 involved in office pools, and $200 in with my friends.
