Week 1

THANKS to everyone who bought a block in our first annual Mel's Maniacs "Relay for Life" football pool.
By now you should have received an email with the numbers for the 17 regular season games. The numbers for the post season will come to you each week, as the teams are chosen.
Unfortunately, we were unable to sell all the blocks, so the open blocks will be taken by our Relay team.Those blocks have the Relay for Life logo in them. We have decided that instead of the Relay team keeping all $50.00, we will keep $25.00 and we will put $25.00 in a pot to be paid to the next winner. The next winner will get the $25.00 in the pot in addition to the regular payout for that block. For instance if a block with the logo in it wins the first half in this Sunday's game, then the winner of the final will receive $75.00. If a logo block should win 2 or 3 times in a row, the cash in the pot will continue to grow until we get a winner.

Football Pool Update

To everyone who has bought blocks, sold blocks or done both, I can't thank you enough.  I knew this was going to be a hard job the first year.   We currently have 65 sold, which means there are 35 blocks remaining.  Gary & I have a few ideas of what to do with blocks that don't sell, but we still have a couple days to sell them, so if you can think of anyone who might like to join in our football pool it's not too late.  I hope to mail the finished pool out to all the participants on Friday evening, the 7th.  So I'm willing to add people until then.
Once again, thanks for all your help.  I couldn't do it without you.

See below for details on the pool and how it works this year! Two days left to sign up!!
