Tournament Rules

Tournament Entry is $10. This year all payments should come directly to Spencer. I appreciate all the years that Joe has helped collect for me but there are now many ways to get money to me that I don't want to use an intermediary. Also all payments must be made prior to the start of games!!! I have spent too much of the pool trying to collect all of the entry fees. Again, there are so many ways to send money now that there is no excuse to not be paid before the games start.

You have any number of ways to pay me:

  • Cash - If you live near me, you can pay me in cash.
  • Credit Card - To pay using credit card, use Square Market. Credit card purchases will include a $0.65 surcharge per entry and that is built in. This fee goes directly toward processing the card transaction.
  • Venmo - My username is @Boilers2000 and you can send it that way.
  • Cash App - My username is $Boilers2000 for sending through Cash App.
  • Pay Pal - I will accept Pay Pal, please use tourney - at - stantonfamilyonline.com for the account.
  • Other - If prior arrangements are made, you can inquire about other options. Whether that be check or directly from your bank, etc. The main thing will be making those arrangments in advance and not after the games have started.

PLEASE DO NOT MENTION BRACKET, NCAA, TOURNAMENT, POOL, ETC. in any comments for your payment.

In all cases, if there are any transfer fees, make sure you set it up so that you are responsible for them. I have only included a fee with the credit card purchase.

Multiple entries are also perfectly allowed. Just please add a number to the end of your name to signify multiple entries so I don't have to ask if you are replacing your original picks.

Scoring is as follows:

Round points x Seed

Round points are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32. This keeps the pool very interesting and rewards correct upset picks.
