Euro 2008 Soccer starts this Saturday morning (Seattle time), so you're running out of time to enter our contest. All entries must be submitted by 7:00 am PT, Saturday June 7th.
Enter Shultzy's Euro 2008 Contest HERE!
We're still working on prizes -- they'll likely be t-shirts and other swag from our beer distributors. Strangely, we've been getting quite a few entries from Canadians (maybe some of our far-flung Shultzy's fans?). If you win, you'll have to pick up your prizes here at our restaurant in Seattle... sorry! But, it would make a great roadtrip for our Canadian friends...
And I think we've got the scoring rules figured out.
Each round robin game picked correctly = 1 point. Ties are worth 1/2 point.
Each quarterfinal game picked correctly = 3 points
Each semifinal game picked correctly = 5 points
Final winner picked correctly = 7 points
So, if you're a real wizard and there are no ties, you could earn a maximum possible 53 points.
The quarterfinal round might prove a little confusing to you, but I've simplified it. Don't worry about who's a group winner and runner-up. Just pick the four teams you think will advance from the quarterfinals (2 from groups A & B and 2 from groups B & C). As I used to tell my students, "if you still don't understand, just try and do your best".
