Hello Fellow MolEcolers,
The 19th FIFA World Cup will be kicking off next month, with 32 teams taking part.
Being Scottish, I often need a little bit of an incentive for watching international football tournaments. That’s why I am thinking of organising a little sweepstake for the lab… After last time, I think it would be fun to mix up the prizes a bit to make it interesting, even if you draw a rubbish team (or if you draw England and then lose to Germany on penalties). So there will be several more prizes in addition to the usual 1st, 2nd, 3rd… including golden boot, most goals conceded, and an own goal prize pot!
Also, I thought it would be nice to donate half of the proceedings to charity this time, perhaps to a worthwhile cause in South Africa.
Please reply to this thread to let me know if you are interested, if I am treading on anyone’s toes, and if anyone has a particular charity they support in Southern Africa, please let me know! If its a popular idea, I’ll follow this up next week with something more formal.
