Charity Score Prediction Contest??
I am considering running a charity score prediction contest over the season
What Would it Cost?
I would suggest an entry fee donation of £10 to be paid directly to Wycombe Homeless Connection
This is the charity that Michael Harriman supports and exists to help out those currently going through a difficult period of their lives and lacking a roof over their heads.
Payment of the entry fee would be on trust (surely no one is so low as to effectively steal from a charity by reneging).
How Many would you need to run the competition?
Competition will only run if 10 or more people sign up.
Is there a prize for winning?
If more than 15 people sign up, I'll contact the club and see if we can fix something up. no guarantees though. The main prize will be the kudos of winning and the joy of knowing you have contributed towards a really good cause.
How will it work?
Simply predict the score for each of the 46 league games. I'll put up a thread a week or so before each game. I'll do the work of scoring and post an update after each match. Winner is one with most points after 46 games
How will it be scored?
Correctly predict a home win (for WWFC or opposition) - 4pts
Correctly predict an away win - 5pts
Correctly predict a draw - 6pts
Get the score exactly right (eg predict correctly a 1-1 draw) - bonus 2pts
For each goal margin you are incorrect - -1 pt
i.e. you predict a 2-0 home win, actual result is
3-0 - 4pts for the home win, -1 pt for the margin - total 3pts
2-0 - 4pts for the home win + 2pts bonus for correct score - total 6pts
3-1 - 4 pts for home win - 0 pts for margin - total 4pts
1-1 - 0 pts for result, -2 pts for margin - total -2 pts
0-2 - 0 pts for result, -4 pts for margin - total -4pts
if you miss a week you score -2pts.
what do I do now?
If interested, post your prediction for blackpool in this thread. if more than 10 people sign up, we'll go live and I'll ask you to send your donations to WHC. If not we forget the whole thing!
