@Skin Rip,
Hi, Skip, thank you for starting this, I will join in if you will please start it.. I admit to thinking the worst about the Rio Olympics, so far. Or worse than worst. Still.. I'm interested in the athletes that participate.

@Skin Rip,
Hi All

Points system is a follows, 5 points for a GOLD, 3 points for a SILVER and 1 point for a BRONZE.

There's a total of 301 events up for grabs in this Olympics.

I already have a master excel file setup for generating points so I just need to add the individuals picks and we are good to go...

Cheers

PS If you add your email address to your entry I can add you to the mailing list and send you the excel file once we are up and running so you can see who is doing what .....

@Skin Rip,
I'm in, and thanks for getting things rolling. I'll recruit some more players. Now to figure out my picks!

Do you have the spreadsheet from 4 years ago? Is it set up to auto-scape medal counts?

@wheel158,
Im recruiting a few from work.

No, this sheet is one of my own which macro's the results and calculates the standings after the medals for the day have been won...

Just need to update the events and its good to go....
