Ton anticipates doing this again next year.  Look for something in the mail right after Thanksgiving.  Check the website also. If your address changes or email address changes, let me know. Email address is jtkutz51@yahoo.com.   If you have any thoughts about improving the pool, drop Tom a line.  Keep in mind: the primary premise of the pool is to go on record in December with who you think will win in March.
