Celebrity Death Pool VI Rules

CDP VI will begin on Sunday, November 15, 2009 and will conclude at 11:59:59 EDT on October 31, 2010.
Select twenty-five celebrities you think may die and be declared dead in the coming year.

Entries are due by Sunday, November 15th but may be submitted until entries are published on
Entries become effective immediately upon submission and payment.
Contact me with any questions and to submit entries:

If a celebrity on your list dies you will be awarded points based on his or her age at the time of death.  The following scoring system applies: 90 or older = 1 pt, 80-89 = 2 pts, 70-79 = 3 pts, and so on…
I do my best to track all deaths, but you are responsible for your own list.
If there happens to be a tie in points – most deaths will win.

Eligible Celebrities
A celebrity must be recognized by the general public. You may not include anyone that is on death row at start of the death pool, or Osama Bin Laden. Celebrities must be human. No one under 18 years of age. A celebrity may be local as long as their death is nationally newsworthy. A celebrity may be international as long as their death is globally newsworthy.
To determine a celebrity’s eligibility, I check if the person: (1) has an extensive wikipedia page, (2) exceeds a suitable number of hits on the NYTimes archive search, and (3) has a number of relevant google search hits.

I have final say!!!

If you do not wish your name to be published on, declare such request on your entry.

$10 per entry. One entry per person or team.

Winner takes all.
CDP I – $170, CDP II – $210, CDP III – $140 (19 pts), CDP IV – $220 (13 pts), CDP V – $260 (21 pts)
