Welcome to our council

march madness pool

Here's how it works.

Anyone who is "eligible" to be a Knight can play.   If you decide to participate in the pool please follow the instructions below.  We ask for a $20 donation (no less, no more) per participant.   Our council will give away 50% of the equal total donations taken in by this pool to the highest scoring participant who donated per the rules.

 

We use cbssports.com to structure, signup, keep status, points, and updates on this pool.  There is no interaction from us on running this pool once you sign up.  The pool actually runs itself.  You do need a working email address to participate and you will be asked to create a login on CBSsopts.com to make your bracket selections which will put you in our Council Pool.   Unfortunately we have no training for this, or helpdesk.  CBSsports.com does have some instruction once you create a login and enter the site.  

All 100% of the donations will be used for local charities and our Council.

Just send an email to  "donation@kofcyorkville.org" to get started!   Or  Hit the Link below (Lets Go) to log in to our Pool or Create a Login then go our Pool.
