The time of year is fast approaching when football is on all our minds. The regulars on this board know that the Virtual Grey Cup Challenge is a part of that.
Since 1999, I’ve been running the unofficial "pool’. Most of that time it has been hosted on this board, but in the early years it was on other sites.
We’ve always gotten a good turnout, with lots of people making picks and some lively discussions. I’ve had a good time doing it, and I hope everyone has had as good a time participating.
That said, I feel the time has come for me to retire. Now that I am older, I no longer have the energy to enter picks and post standings, week in and week out. So I will no longer be running the VGCC.
I’m aware that some of you have been keeping track of the picks yourselves, and some have been doing a better job at it than I have. So I would be proud if someone else took over my position, and kept this thing going for years to come. I leave it to you to make the decision as to who will take on this role.
The rules are available at http://home.sourcecable.net/~roddick/vgcc_rules.htm. These should give you a good starting point; download them, and feel free to make changes to them as you see fit. Also, the VGCC awards are at http://home.sourcecable.net/~roddick/vgcc_awards.htm. It would be nice if you could maintain them as well.
I will still come around the CFL forum from time to time, and may even participate in the VGCC.
Thank you all for participating,
“Big” Dave Roddick
