    Run on Yahoo
    Pick one outright winner per week
    You're eliminated after your second loss
    Can't pick the same team twice

    Have had approximately 12-14 participants annually, can't see why we can't reach 20 or more.

    Take a chance at some serious money

    Last unbeaten Team Wins $ 1,000
    Second Place Wins $ 500
    First Place wins the balance, $ 4,500 with 12 participants

    One team can win as much as $ 5,500 with 12 participants

    Of course, once it gets down to 2 (or a few), remaining participants can split the pot any way they unanimously agree to

    PS: we usually nominate two or three treasurers to hold the money

    Payments are due before the 1st Sunday of the season, I think it was Friday last year

    All winners have obviously always been promptly paid in full

    OK, once treasurers are nominated, someone will reach out to you with an address

    much harder to recruit, I don't think we can even start a thread directing people to this contest or this thread, and I don't think it's BAS's fault

    very discouraging trend for me, I don't like it at all

    reach out to someone, I'll do my share

    Please proceed with extreme caution and operate at your own risk when dealing with other Rx posters privately, especially in financial matters. The Rx.com does not endorse any posters that solicit other posters for loans or transfers, or wagering events between yourselves and cannot vouch for any posters that attempt to procure loans, funds for private contests, funds for private wagers or transfers from other posters for any reason anywhere on this site.

    Financial transactions between posters are extremely risky and The Rx. advises the use of the most serious caution before making any kind of financial transaction with another poster. The Rx.com itself cannot be held responsible when posters fail trying to recover funds loaned, transferred or wagered with or to other posters under any circumstances.

    Unless you personally know a poster or one is vouched for you by someone you highly trust you should be very hesitent to conduct unsecured financial business with posters that you meet on this any other forum.

    I cannot over emphasize how dangerous it is to bet or loan or transfer money with or to complete stangers and expect to be paid in the end. I am not saying all posters are dishonest but utmost caution needs to be practiced whenever posters deal with each others privately, especially in regards to financial matters. The Rx.com cannot help mediate disputed wagers, contests or debts between private parties..

    Caveat Emptor - let the buyer beware..

    Thank you, The RX Mod Team

    Let's get this thing moving, maybe start the invites so we can fill a roster and then set a payment date the week before opening day

    All the forum and contest regulars, start recruiting

    Just set up the league, go to send out invitations to everyone interested to start a contest roster

    We usually wind up with about 12, we can exceed that number if everyone lurking registers

    sent out invitations to all of last year's participants for whom I had e-mails

    also reached out to people who have expressed an interest

    once we have a roster, we'll nominate treasurers



    help me boys, let's grow this thing, I'm going to be pushing for the next 10 or so days
