Just cutting to the chase...here are the details on the 2013 AC 100 Box Pool I've got rolling for Randy!
RANDY RUNS AC100 BOX POOL
There will be TWO box pools you can enter.
$20 or $10 (or both if you feel like it!)
We’ll add up his arrival time at the following aid stations and finish.
Islip (25.91 miles), Chilao (52.8 miles), Chantry Flats (74.55 miles) and Finish Line (100 miles).
$20 per square or $10 per square. There can only be 1-9 digits.
That's $1620 or $810 total dollars. Half of each pot goes for this fundraiser. The remaining will be split as follows:
Location/$20 pool prize/$10 pool prize
(if not all squares are filled we will use the percentages these figures represent AND we will have an extra drawing should an empty square "hit" to determine whether we will move to the next filled square in top, bottom, left or right direction).
Islip / $125 / $62
Chilao / $150 / $75
Chantry Flats / $175 / $87
Finish $360 / $181
How the number will be figured:
There will be HOURS and MINUTES that elapse.
EXAMPLE: It takes him 3 hours and 54 minutes to get to Islip then the HOURS column would be 3 and the minutes column would be 9 (5+4).
Then he gets to Chilao in 9 hours and 1 minute that example is easy. HOURS 9 and MINUTES 1.
Chantry Flats he hits after 18 hours and 44 minutes would translate into 9 on the hours (1+8) column and 8 (4+4) on the minutes column.
Finish Line of 29:59 translates into 2 on HOURS column (2+9 = 11 then 1+1= 2... so 2 for Hours Column) and minutes would be 5 (5+9=14 then 1+4=5...so Minutes Column would be 5.)
We will also have random prizes to win. We will cut up the ALL full board squares, put them in a hat and pull them out.
Michele Neumann has offered up a pound of fresh fish (her husband is a fisherman).
Russ Stephens threw a $25 Coffee Bean Gift Card in
Vicki Adoff is bringing a hand painted serving bowl.
I need more prizes to raffle off (Help! People LOVE winning and anything you'd like to win would be a good thing to contribute).
WHAT ARE MY NUMBERS?
You do not get this information until the box pool closes (either by July 31st or when full).
Once "closed" I will pull the 1-9 numbers from a hat and assign them to the columns or rows.
Then I will pull the words MINUTES and HOURS and assign them to the edge.
Now you can see what your numbers are.
If there are empty squares I will pull a directional (Left, Right, Up, Down) indicator. This means that if the winning box is empty we will move in that direction to the next filled box.
Everyone in the pool will be sent a copy of the final pool so you can watch the race and see who is a winner. I will also post it on this BLOG so you can access it if you lose your copy!
Next you need to pay attention to the RACE TIME IN recorded at the above stations by the HAM RADIO OPERATORS on duty there or an OFFICIAL of the race (not me). I will be doing my BEST to post this on our FB site but I've already discovered that cell reception is VERY limited. I may try to call someone in the 805 Boot Camp Page that can post for everyone to see.
If you do not pay before the close, you forfeit your square(s). This will also take $$ out of the total pot. Please pay the lady!
DISASTER PLAN: Should Randy NOT finish this race the remaining (finish line) cash will be placed in a drawing. We cut up the squares of each board (81 squares) and do a random drawing at camp by a random boot camper in attendance at the Monday August 5th 6pm boot camp class. If no one likes that idea, we'll just give it to Jaydee (he volunteered it).
We will (cell phone and signal dependent) be giving regular updates through the FaceBook Group (check it out!)
Our broad texting system (you sign up for this on our website if you haven't already). Go to the bottom of the page and fill it in. EVERYONE that signs up will have their cell phone entered for updates.
