Do you think you can pick the best five dogs in the 2006 national retrieving trial championship? If so enter the inaugural AWRC national ‘pick-em’!
Here’s how it works…
: reply to this post nominating six of the 39 dogs entered in the National that you think are most likely to finish. The first five dogs you name will be used in the pick-em. The five picks don’t need to be in any specific order or ranking. The sixth dog you nominate will be kept as reserve in the event of a tie in the pick-em.
As the trial progresses, each dog will score one point for each run it finishes. Dogs which finish the trial get an extra 5 points and the winner gets a bonus 10 points. So for example a dog which goes out on run 5 will score 4 points (one for each run it completed), a dog which completes the trial will receive 8+5=13 points and the winner will receive 8+5+10=23 points.
The pick-em competitor whose five dogs score the most points wins the pick-em.
Once a particular combination of six dogs has been picked, that combination can’t be picked by another person. So get your entries in early!
Once you have entered, you can't edit or change your picks.
It's a "lock-em in Eddie (or in this case Jason)" type situation. It will be too hard to keep track of picks if people start changing their mind.
If there is a tie for first place, the reserve picks will be added to the joint leaders tallies. If this doesn't resolve the tie, the winner will be the person involved in the tie who entered the competition earliest
(as determined by the date and time of their post in this thread).
The pick-em winner will receive a bundle of national merchandise including a stubby holder, enamel badge, cap and pen kindly donated by the national organising commitee.
Entries close at 5pm on Thursday 21 September (the day before the national starts). The only way to enter is to reply to this post. Don’t email me your entries.
The full details of the entries is on the AWRC 2006 National Page
. A summary is listed below to make copying and pasting your picks easier.
