    Aya - I think the first match kicks off at 4.00 pm so how about we close entries at 2.30pm tomorrow and do the draw at 3pm. If no other way to do the draw I can get 2 ladies in my office to draw it independently but there may be a better way.

    If due to the time factor we have between 16 and 32 entries by 2.30pm could we allocate 1 team to everyone and then a lucky dip draw for some posters to have 2 teams to make up to 32.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Sounds good to me SJH - I think we are up to 17 now...........so hopefully we can round up another 10 or so by 2.30 this afternoon....

    Good idea to have an independent draw - hope your ladies can bear this responsibility and are not open to any bribing

    Is there a prize, other than the warm satisfaction of being randomly chosen to feel superior to everyone else?

    One of the ladies I have asked conducted our office sweepstake yesterday and is very strict indeed as I found out when I tried to swap Senegal for Germany.

    She is a very knowledgeable Blade (she even told me how to spell knowledgeable) and is helping to conduct the draw under strictest scrutiny at 3.00 pm (FIFA executives have been invited).

    Think we have 21 now Aya. You need to be at your most persuasive to get us up to 32 by this afternoon. UTB

    Glad to hear all above board 😊.....22 now....why don't we keep cut off but take out the duffers from the draw for the shortfall ie Iran SArabia etc?

    I reckon we'll get to 24 so that's one team from each group. ...and nobody likes to get a no hoper 😎

    Who needs to be randomly chosen?

    Some stalwarts there Aya that may like to be in. Should we extend the deadline or do we stick to 2.30 pm today? Quite happy for you to do the draw if you prefer. Was only offering the strict ladies if it helps. Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks to everyone who has entered so far.

    The strict lady has just commented that we could extend it to 4 pm - what do you think Aya? Strict lady is a bit like Mark from the Guinness Book of Records on A League of Their Own only she smiles less!

    Silverblade has had major problems re registering for this site. When she sets up a new registration it says she is already registered but when she tries to post it won't let her. However, she says she would like to join in if we will let her even though she is not technically a current poster.

    Both sound good to me - and I think strict lady should do the draw at just 3.55pm ...
