    Hello everyone,

    I was browsing through the BIF forums for a while and didn't see any soccer BIF events. I was wondering if there is really no people in this community who enjoy good craft beer while watching Champions League/Premiership/Serie A/Bundesliga? Maybe we could get a bunch of guys and start somethin'.

    Would certainly be up for a World Cup one.

    Possibly. But I would need some major help since I have very little experience with BIF
     
  5. I'm still confused about the whole BIF thing so I never participated in anything. I agree that WC would be a great event for it. Argentina!!!

    Lol. That makes two of us :) But maybe that's the key...if we get enough first timers here who knows, maybe it will work.
    Anyway, I think I'l message a bunch of people who already are hosting that and see if they help me out with the organizing part and in the meantime I'll figure out the rules

    Sure. Since it's closer I have to research how those are handled and I'll try to post some details soon.

    Yes. I'd be in.
     
  14. I'd like to join! I'll have to familiarize myself with how it works but it seems pretty straight forward

    Thanks for the interest guys. I will post some general rules within the next week or so once I figure out the best (and most entertaining) format to use for this one!
     
  18. Absolutely in.

    I'd be interested. I ran a non-beer World Cup pool 4 years ago. 32 entrants. Double-blind team picking (32 entrants in one hat, 32 teams in the other, pick out 32 pairs at a time). Had prizes for getting into second round, advancing, and a special one for "most penalized." Not sure how it'd translate to BIF, but could be cool.
