2010 Tour de France Contest

This contest used to be run to raise money for the endowment fund for the Jason Lapierre Scholarship. Since we have reached our endowment fund goal we are looking for a new organization to raise funds for. 100% of the entry fees will still be going towards a worthy endowment, the choice of the pool winner. In the past, we have been able to raise approximately $700 to $800 from this pool.

Simple rules (from the spreadsheet entry form)...
-Submit your excel spreadsheet with picks to Kyle Marcotte (dukyle at yahoo dot ca) before 11:59pm Friday July 2nd.
-You can enter multiple teams (Cost is $20 per team)
-Results are final after each stage (so no drug overturn of results). Points schedule is listed below. Ties are divided by the number of stage wins, then stage points, then a coin toss.
-Trash talking is encouraged.


Prizes (more to come…look for these to be updated soon... If there are some additional folks who would like to donate prizes, please let me know and we can add it to the list).

1st place: Tax receipt for the entire amount raised, a pair of Oakley sunglasses donated by Speed Theory, timex Hat
2nd: Marcy has donated a 1 Hour massage at her clinic Motion Chiropractic for the TDF Pool, Timex hat
