Hey everyone ,
 
I am picking up where  Joe Public left off last year .
I will not be running an elimination contest .
Thank you again SaratosaSlim for keeping it going LY
 
This is from week 1 of last year >>
 
Hilton Contest for fun - Week 1
 
The Rules
This contest is FOR FUN.  You will NOT win anything.  Unless you're Webba.  He is guaranteed some wax for his platypus bill, otherwise he doesn't participate.  Don't yell at me, he worked it into his contract, if you wanted the same deal, you should have been a better negotiator.

Each week I will post the lines. 

Lines come from here:
http://legend.jimfeist.com/Contests/HiltonContest.aspx

You get 5 picks, no more, no less.

Scoring:

Win - 1 point
Push - .5 point
Loss - 0 points

It's really not that difficult.

The object
The object is to paper bet the real Hilton contest to see how you'd have done if you'd have paid the relatively expensive entrance fee.  To see who can generate the best winning percentage over the course of an entire season.

Record keeping
Every year this starts and 100 people play.  That lasts about three weeks.  I will NOT keep your record for you because, frankly, outside of a handful of guys, I know you'll quit, or forget, or not care because you're doing badly or there's no prize.  It's cool.  But you're in charge of your own posted record until about midway through the season.

Also, POST YOUR RECORD IN YOUR THREAD.

Trust me, it will help in the long run.

If you really want to see how you'd fare, you will post your picks by Thursday night of every week. 

That said, next post will be the lines. 

Good luck this year everybody.
