    Very easy way to draw teams for a blind draw....at the close of the season: You could randomly number each of the participants.... send that list via a private message to at least one member ( not involved in the draw) - at the same time have another member put numbers in a hat ( say 1-20) and and pair them up - you could do 2 teams or however many you want... just have whoever draws them assign each number drawn to team 1, next one to team 2 , etc... then just have that person post the numbers/teams. Then the person who has the randomly assigned names can just change the numbers to names ( and third party will have them to verify).

    I think the idea of a blind draw will work well, as I have read that in years past some people "disappear". so at the close of the season you can just put in those who have stayed active. Downside is you can't pick teammates and root for them all season, the upside is any and every posted deer COULD be your teammate! Just a thought.... looking forward to contributing some horns....

    Interesting idea of waiting until the end of the season to draw the names Mike. Way to think outside of the box!! Hopefully that will get those that sign up to stick around more and see what happens!!
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Thanks 00buck but I decided this year I wasn't going to do any contests at all. I'll just sit back and enjoy watching you guys bring in all the big bucks!!

    i'm in and up for any rules you want to put up for the contest...BUT it makes no sense to me to draw after the season! What fun is that??? I'd guess most of the guys are in this contest for the fun of it and getting to know a few other guys. I really don't care if i get drawn on a team and all of my members drop out...at least i had a team! Doing it this way isn't even really a contest or any fun...it'd be like playing in a golf tourney and then drawing the 4 somes afterwards!?!?! This contest isn't about winning and having all players participate on your team its about archery guys getting together on a forum and maybe meeting a few new fellow archers. I've met a few guys that were on my team over the last couple years and we shared a lot of information. We even planned a hunt together but the weekend didn't work out.
    Hey whoever gets in and participates does and those that don't oh well...
    I'm in and okay with it but for me this takes the fun and competition out of it...might as well just blind draw for the prizes.
    My two cents...ching, ching.
    Will hunt for food...will work for beer.
    Leave'r Right There!
