    I have been in every year and will take over running it for Summer 78

    It's an NFL pick 'em confidence pool.

    HOW IT WORKS

    Every week you will pick who you believe will be the winner of every game. We will not be using point spreads, so you pick who you think will win the game outright. You then assign each game a confidence value (1 being the least confident up to the highest number being the most confident, ranging from 13-16 depending on the number of games that week). That's it. Very straight forward.

    PAYOUT

    This part is very important and some people don't fully read the rules, so pay attention: Each player will be shipping TWO boxes (unless they finish in the season winnings).

    Each week whoever has the week's highest point total will be the weekly winner. That player will receive between 1 and 4 small boxes. The number of weekly boxes is determined by how many participants we have:

    17-33 players - 1 box
    34-50 - 2 boxes
    51-67 - 3 boxes
    68 - 4 boxes

    I will cap this BIF at 68 players. Every player will ship a small weekly box. These boxes are to be 44-72 oz.

    We will likely pay out the top 7 or 8 places for the season winnings, depending on how many players we get. I will post a breakdown of boxes once the field is closer to set. Season boxes will be larger than weekly boxes and should fall in the 100-200 oz range.

    All targets will be assigned by me. I try my best to make sure winners receive boxes from other regions of the country.

    If you have no trade or BIF history, please provide someone who will vouch for you. If you're in, BM me with your name, address, email, and phone number. Good luck!
