Due to COVID-19 we are canceling this year’s ACOA Super Bowl Party. We are not canceling the Annual Meeting, but we are delaying it until May. We will let you know later when (and how) the Annual Meeting will be held. For now, we wanted to keep at least one of our Super Bowl traditions going – the ACOA Super Bowl Pool. For those of you who are new to ACOA, each Super Bowl we have a free football pool for Officers. Every ACOA member is automatically assigned a square for the pool (use the quarter sheets below and the number you receive in the email to find your square). If your square wins, you will receive $200. Additionally, instead of the silent auction and other game day prizes, we added some additional ways to win in this year’s football pool. Review the instructions below to learn about all the ways you can win. Good luck!
Football Pool Rules
Never been in a football pool before? Here’s how ours works.
Winners will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and Final Game score. Winners are determined by looking at the last number in each team’s score, and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers. If you have never been in a football pool, just ask a fellow Officer who has played before. That way you will be able to cheer for your number.
How did we pick your square?
First, we assigned a number to each Officer (1 – 922). We then drew a number randomly for each square on the board. There are 400 squares (4 quarters – 100 squares each). Each of the 400 squares has two or three numbers in it. After COs’ numbers were randomly placed in each square, we randomly drew the “score” numbers for each quarter.
Three Ways to Win
1st Way to Win – $200
You win $200 if your number is in the square lining up with the last digit of each team’s score after the quarter ends. Example: Let’s say the square with your number is under the heading “Chiefs” 7 and “Buccaneers” 0 in the second quarter. If the Chiefs’ score is 7, 17, 27, or, 37 and the Buccaneers’ score is 0, 10, 20, or 30 at the end of the 2nd quarter, you, and the other Officer(s) in your square, each win $200.
2nd Way to Win – $100 (reverse)
You win $100 if your number is in the square lining up with the last digit of the reverse of each team’s score after the quarter ends. Example: If the last digit of the Chiefs’ score is 7 and the last digit of the Buccaneers’ score is 0, then you would find the 0 in the Chiefs’ row and the 7 in the Buccaneers’ row and the Officers who have a number in the intersecting square each win $100.
3rd Way to Win – $50 (touching)
You will win $50 if your number is in a square touching the square that lines up with the last digit of each team’s score after the quarter ends. In the example pictured, each of the eight squares touching the winner from the 1st way to win above will each win $50.
