The “Contest”

It’s that time of year again. is running its World Championship contest.  Last year contestants were asked to work out the winners at each stage of the WMSG Open Division.  This year we are going to have two contests.  One in the Open Division and one in the Seniors.  You simply email your entry to (Note the change!!) Each contestant can send in one entry and as a bonus every contestant (staff included) will get a $10 gift certificate which they can use at just for entering.  The two winners will also get to select from a list of books which I will outline in the next few days.

Here are the rules:

The two contests will be run separately.  You can only win one so if you win both the contestant who did the second best in the semifinals will be the winner.

If there is a tie then the tie will be broken by looking at the tie breaking third place choice.  If all else fails we will award two prizes!

1. Select the 8 teams in the quarter finals. (1 point each)

2. Select the 4 teams in the semi finals (2 points each)

3. Select the two finalist (4 points each)

4. Select the winner for an extra 6 points

5. Select third place as the tie breaker.

You can enter both competitions or just one if you prefer.

In the next while I will post my thoughts and the teams I am picking along with information about the book prizes.
