Tour de France fantasy pool.

2012 will represent the 6th year that we've run our Tour de France Pool. So far we've donated approximately $4000 for local projects/charities. Here's a breakdown of the previous podium finishers.

This contest used to be run to raise money for the University of Calgary endowment fund for the Jason Lapierre Scholarship (Not to be confused with the Greenway Project charity). We have reached our endowment fund goal and 100% of the entry fees will still be going towards a worthy cause; this year it will be the choice of the pool winner.

Simple rules (follow the spreadsheet entry form attached)
-Submit your excel spreadsheet with picks to Kyle Marcotte (dukyle at yahoo dot ca) before 11:59pm Friday June 29th.
-You can enter multiple teams (Cost is $20 for your first team, $15 for your second, $10 for your third, $10 for 4th, 5th 6th... per household)
-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.

Please use the spreadsheet to fill out your entries (when its available) as it makes organizing the contest a lot easier. The spreadsheet is here. Click this to download.

-Individual stage points: 1st - 25 points 2nd - 20 points 3rd - 15 points
-Yellow Jersey points: 1st - 150 points 2nd - 100 points 3rd - 75 points
-Green Jersey points: 1st - 100 points 2nd - 75 points 3rd - 50 points
-Polka dot Jersey points: 1st - 50 points 2nd - 40 points 3rd - 30 points
-Team placing: 1st - 50 points 2nd - 40 points 3rd - 30 points
-Yelow, Green, Polka dot and Team points are only awarded once at the end of stage 21 (but they will be updated so that you can see the swing as the race progresses).
(see last year's table above as an example)

The points will be updated as much as possible (hopefully after each stage) and posted here.

Again, all proceeds will be donated by the overall pool winner to the charity of their choice. The pool winner will be receiving a tax receipt for the entire amount donated and there will be an assortment of other prizes for top finishers.
