Hey all,

As a reminder (and please pass this on to whoever may be in the league but not on BFO, or too often):

I started a "parallel money league" last year for folks with teams in the long-running MOTM league. In the first season we had 5 people playing and hoping to get a few more this year. It is optional and doesn't impact the league at all. It is small dollar but it does add another dimension to have fun, brag/bust chops - and also to win!

Key points:
- Entry fee is ONLY $25 for the season.
- Entry fees must be submitted prior to kickoff of the first game of the season
- Since the money league is optional & extra, it will only pertain to the people who enter. So it is conceivable or even likely that the winner of the regular league and the money league could be two different people. Last year Playas came in 2nd in the overall league but first in the money league.
- I'll hold the funds until the playoffs are over, and then pay out when the league winner is determined.

Payout:
- First place will go to the person who makes the playoffs and goes the farthest of the pool of people in the money league... the highest of first, second or third place in the regular league.
- IF nobody in the money league even makes the playoff top 3 finishes then the winner will be the person who is highest on the "final standings" list after the season
- IF we get 7 players or more, I'll modify the winnings to be: $100 or more (add $25 for each incremental entrant) for 1st place, a 2nd place finish prize of $50 and then the $25 entry fee going back to the 3rd place entrant
- For 6 or fewer players, we'll only have two winners. All the entry fees will go to the winner, less the entry fee of $25 to the 2nd place finisher.
- If we don't get at least 3 players, I'll refund fees and we'll call it a day.

To Pay:
- Send $25 to my Venmo ( @Eric-JKasza ) or my personal email via Chase Pay ( ejkasza@gmail.com ) or Paypal ( Eric Kasza )
- By kickoff of the first game of the season ( 8:20 EST for the Chiefs/Lions on 9/7).

I'll keep a running list of joiners and pay dates here so everyone can keep track. Paid & In:
- Me - Daisycutter (Eric / IE) 9-5-23
- Pigskin Playas (dabearsfan) 9-6-23
- Palm Beach Planks (dplank) 9-6-23

Any questions or suggestions, please comment.
