Pick 1 team each week. If they win, you survive to next week. If they lose, you are out.  Ties are considered as a "loss".

Here's how Survivor works: You select one NFL team each week you think will win. If that team loses, you're out. The catch: You can only pick a team once each season. Last the longest, you'll be crowned the ultimate NFL champion.  

Payment & Payout:
 $100 prize pool includes insurance
 $100 Rotary International Donation 
So to play it costs either  $200   For example, I will pay $200 to play, of which $100  will go into the pool for the
winner to take, and the FUNDRAISER to the Foundation is $100.   You may pay on our club website via PayPal or send a check to PDG Ed Charlesworth, 11407 Hylander Dr., Houston, TX. 77070.

If you have friends who are interested, participants do not have to belong to our Rotary club.

The game kicks off in Week #1 of the NFL regular-season (First game for this football pool is September 18th) and ends after Week 17 or whenever there is only one (1) remaining participant.  
In the event that multiple final participants all lose in a given week, those participants will move to the
next week until the tie is broken. For example, if the final six participants all pick incorrectly in Week
#13, all six will get to pick again in Week #14. If only one participant selects correctly in Week #14, that
participant wins the pool. If two participants pick correctly in Week #14, only those two participants
(and not all six who got to pick on Week #14) move on to the next week.

All participants MUST submit a team pick each week. IF YOU DO NOT PICK A TEAM IN ANY GIVEN WEEK, YOU ARE ELIMINATED.   

Insurance does not save you if you do not send in a pick.
The final deadline for each week's selection is prior to the start time of the first Sunday game on each
weekend of play. That includes picks for the Monday night game. On weeks that have a Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday or Saturday game, anyone wishing to pick one of the teams playing in those game(s)
must have their pick submitted prior to the start of that game. There is no restriction on how early a
selection may be submitted (i.e., if you are going to be out of the office on business or vacation, you can
submit your picks in advance). A participant may also change their pick at any time providing they
submit the new pick prior to the deadlines listed above.  Each participant is responsible for being aware
of and meeting the deadlines for their weekly picks. A week of play is based on the regular NFL schedule
and includes the Monday night game for that week.
The weekly picks will be available to all participants so each participant can track how many survive and
how many are eliminated.  It will also give everyone a chance to check to make sure I have selected the
correct pick for everyone.

Summary:  The object is to pick the winner of only ONE NFL game each week.  Participants may NOT PICK THE SAME TEAM TWICE during the entire season.  If the team picked won in that week, then you survived to play again the next week.  The game ends when only one person remains  at successfully choosing winning teams.  We had six members involved last season.  Let's get more people in the pool this year!
