Not late at all: picks can be made right up until the matches start.

Thanks. Will need coaching for this as we go along but I think I have it in principal.

It's pretty simple: I'll be PM'ing all entrants when each round's picks are up to get their picks in.

Wow, we have a lot participating!  Good job kicker and all.  What, are we up to around 27 or so?  That's a pretty good number!

27 it is, with 3 and a half hours left for any latecomers. Scott did the donkey work: he emailed all members informing them of it :applause: I even have an email from him in my inbox.

Oh, and for anybody unsure of the scoring system, you get 1 point for each R1 pick you get right, 2 points in R2, 3 in R3 right up to 7 points for a correct pick in the final round. 0 for any wrong or late picks, obviously.

Well, great job by both of you!  (especially after all the trouble the forum experienced earlier). ;-()

I was panicking a bit with talk of a restore: I needed to get it started but didn't want to lose everybody's picks, so I backed up every pick on my spreadsheet as soon as I saw it. Then I found out there was no restore, :PHEW:)

Yes.  I was leading in BGT's game when we crashed.  So since I was LEADING and we're not restorying, I declare a winner by default of that game!  Hopefully we're ok now on the forum and no need to worry against, but who knows!  At least you were prepared! :))

Don't panic with the restore.  I am backing up the forum.  Problem is, I cannot download the back up yet, they have not resolved the issue.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I just have 1 question... This is the first time Im participating... Suppose I picked 10 names for round 1... and I get 7 of them right.. for round #2, can I pick the winner of the next matchup of the 3 guys I chose wrong? Or do I miss the chance of picking one of that match-up?

For round 2, I'll pick out 10 entirely seperate matches, nothing to do with R1.

I can't accept any of the 4 I've highlighted, but the others are OK. You can catch up, some people haven't scored a point yet who did get picks in.
