    U.S. Nationals Prediction Contest

    U.S. Nationals Prediction Contest

    Entry Form

    It is U.S. Nationals Prediction Contest time again! Predict the top 6 finishers at U.S. Nationals. The deadline for entries is January 22, 2007.

    Please submit your predictions using the entry form. Entries posted in this thread will not be scored. If the entry form does not work for you, please try again later. If after several attempts it still doesn't work, you can send it to me via private message.

    About Name and E-mail

    Feel free to choose anything you like as a name, your real name isn't necessary.

    If you would like to receive a confirmation message, enter your e-mail address on the entry form. If you do not receive this message, please do not resubmit your entry. Contact me first by private message and I will confirm it that way. I will also use your e-mail address to send you a link to the results when they are available.


    About Alternates

    On the entry form you are asked to select first and second alternates. Make these predictions as if you were predicting the top 8 instead of the top 6. If anyone withdraws, all skaters predicted to finish below that person will be moved up one place, and your first alternate will then be predicted to finish 6th.

    If after submitting your entry, you realize that you have forgotten to include someone in your predictions, send me a private message and tell me who you forgot and where you think they will finish and I'll make the necessary adjustments.

    Scoring will be the same as in prior years:

    7 points for exact predictions
    5 points if your prediction is off by 1 place
    4 points if it is off by 2 places
    3 points if it is off by 3 places
    2 points if it is off by 4 places
    1 point if it is off by 5 places

    As always, there are NO prizes. I will be posting statistics about this year's predictions soon after the deadline.

    Good Luck!

    I totally suck at these sorts of things (but I'll bet I'm right to five places in ice dance) but here we go anyway...

    Who did you put third, Davis and White or Matthews and Zavosin?

    Wow, that was hard. Probably not a good sign that after fourth and fifth place, I pick the ones whose names I like best, is it?

    My vote for coolest-sounding names: "Castile and Okolski"

    It's even hard to pick the podium in many cases, that's why I always say: 'in no particular order'. Still, a spoiler will get on the podium.

    I went with my gut and said Davis and White. I think at the moment, they're more solid. But that's going to be the closest call of the ice-dance event, I think, unless something REALLY dramatic happens up top. (As in B/A or G/P crash into the boards or something.)

    OK, I do not understand the "first and Second Alternates" as far as Why they can't be ...say first alternate is your original pick for second, vis ver???? I guess I don't understand the "alternates."

    If the one I thought would get first and they don't, they would likely be my choice for second....etc...?????
