Here is the application and rules for the upcoming HoopShoot!
Join the fun, compete against other lodges. Who can play: Any member in good standing with an Elks.org password may participate in the Elks.org Football Pick 'em competition. There is no charge to participate. Please encourage members of your lodge to play by posting a copy of our free Football Pick 'Em flyer. How to Play: To participate, pick the teams you think will win each game of the upcoming week. Selections may be made as far in advance as you like, up to one hour before the first games of the week. (Remember, the first game of the week may occur on Saturday, so please make your picks before the weekend.) Once the first scheduled game of the week has come within 60 minutes of kickoff, your selections for the week - including Monday's game - may not be changed. Be sure to make selections for all upcoming games on the schedule. If a selection has not been chosen for a particular game, that game will automatically be recorded as incorrect. Results: Results are tabulated and updated several times per day on your Elks.org Pick 'Em Dashboard. Correct selections (wins) are represented by a green checkmark and incorrect selections (losses) are represented by a red X. Individual Leaderboard: Check the individual leader board to compare your results with the results of other participating Elks. By default, results are displayed for the entire season to date but can be filtered for each week. Members who have made selections for at least half of the games played will be given a rank. Individual results can be filtered by lodge, state, and district. Lodge Leaderboard: Check the lodge leader board to compare your lodge results to other participating lodges. By default, results are displayed for the entire season to date but can be filtered for each week. To be given a "rank" in the standings, lodge members must have submitted a total number of selections greater than twice the number of games played to date. Lodge results can be filtered by lodge, state, and district. Prizes Bragging rights only! There are no prizes associated with the elks.org Pro Football Pick 'Em Competition. Emails: Each Tuesday of the season, an email will be distributed with the top performers on an individual and Lodge basis. This email will also serve as a reminder to visit Elks.org/football to make your picks for the upcoming week. Questions: Questions can be sent via email to email@example.com.
