Re: Fall Tour Prediction Game Discussion!

What stinks about any format with a direct scoring on openers and closers - is that Furthur takes it Furthur, right? Isn't that what we love? Closing with crazienest and opening with it too? If you think it's a Stranger night and you call it as an opener - but the band closes set 1 or puts it in the middle of set 2, you get nothing? That ain't kind....

I understand that scoring the current carnation is brutal. (my bro-in-law was supposed to make it via website- still waiting!). What if we just scale it down. Make it 10 songs we will here tonight, order of most def to less def. (maybe add first set- second set- or encore, for tie breaker purposes???)

The other thing is you shouldn't see anyone's predictions till after you submitt. That way there is no piggybacking on the tail of someone with the hot hand!!

Anyways, I love anyone crazy enough to even care or talk about this stuff, cuz I love this band. I am on tour after Red Rocks! First Furthur visit to SD! Too cool. And the Santa Barbara Bowl is the coolest venue on the planet - hands down!! Nobody can dispute that. I will take over 1,000 pictures there for proof. Peace and love to all the couch tour vets! Long live this band

What's wrong with emulating the behavior of those with superior intuition or scanning others' set lists to jar loose the song you meant to add, but temporarily forgot? As the cyclists draft behind the leader, I have used this technique to tweak the picks of the players with the hot hands into a winning hand for myself. I'm usually in the middle or towards the rear of the pack, but I was thrilled to win one round. Please don't deny this opportunity, some of us need all of the help that we can get from this community. (And some of us are so far out there that we need to find a tether once and a while to return to earth and get grounded.)

Enjoy the tour! Santa Barbara Bowl is a fun venue. I hope that they allow refillable water containers this year. In 2010 I was not permitted to bring mine in. The pit was incredible, and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and the venue.
Thank You Jerry

That would be great Ryan!!!!! I do have a list of people who signed up to score the predictions.

www.furthur.net/forum/show-reviews/18730...et-list-scoring-help

DenverMan signed up to score the predictions on the 25th the same night you are going to post the set list. And I signed up for scoring the predictions on the 2nd but I will change it and put your name there if you dont mind! And if DenverMan wants to hand his over. But as of now I'm gonna keep DenverMan's name there.

I did enjoy your version Cooper! I loved picking out the whole set list. That is why I wanted to keep it going after you weren't able to keep it going anymore. But creating games isn't my forte. And having over 20+ people playing per round the scoring got to be a bit much! I was hoping someone else wanted to jump in and take over. So we are just gonna go with the new format this tour and see what happens with it.

i see that every show has a designated "score keeper" to help reduce the load on Emily and Sue. since i'm sitting out this tour i have capacity to provide clerical support if necessary. if any of the score keepers call in sick and you need a last minute substitue, or if anyone needs some extra administrative support let me know.

good luck to all who decide to play the game, and safe travels to all who will be on the road. should be a memorable tour. not anticipating any major breakouts, but i think the band will be focused and hitting on all cylinders. the fun begins in 6,054 minutes...
We will all be together for ever and ever when we make it to the promised land
