We're doing it again! I offered to take over this year's pool so Boourns can participate and have fun this year. Rules are similar to the previous years rules (didn't want to fix the unbroken).
You MUST list 25 bands. Headliners will be required, so the first three names on your list will be considered your headliner predictions. For correct headliner guesses, you will be rewarded THREE points for each, and all other bands will count as ONE point. If you predict a band as a headliner but they end up NOT being a headliner but still a performer, counts as one point. If you predict a band as a performer and they end up being a headliner, you get one point (not three, since you didn’t exactly call it correctly). Make sense?
How To Enter:
E-mail me your predictions: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d rather not get PM’s because I always forget to clean those out and I don’t want anyone’s stuff getting bounced back.
Like last year, you can resubmit your list as often as you wish until the deadline, but keep in mind that in the event of a tie, the poster with the fewest resubmits and/or the earliest final submission, will win. Again, like last year, if a band gets confirmed and added to the “restricted” list before the deadline and you’ve already submitted your list with that band on it, you get the point for it, even though that band is restricted for everyone else.
Bragging rights and a super-cool crafty homemade trophy from yours truly.
All entries must be sent via email by November 23rd. That’s two weeks. We can afford a little more time this year since we’re starting it earlier.
Don’t post your list here. I’ll post everyone’s list once the deadline has passed.
Just like the last two years, bands that are considered "confirmed" will be restricted. Fortunately, we’re starting early this year, so the “confirmed” list is rather short.

Also, don't forget-when you email me, make sure you include your board name so I know who to credit tht list to.
