A Note on Formatting:

I've worked up a spreadsheet to keep track of submissions.  The only inputs I need are Name and Date of Birth.  Everything else will be calculated.  For future submissions it would help me if you would submit with commas separating data rather than other marks.  For example:

Robert De Niro, 17 May 1944
Peter Mayhew, 19 May 1944

The date format doesn't matter so much; Excel will convert it.  But please avoid DD/MM/YYYY as Excel will interpret it as MM/DD/YYYY due to my region settings.

I've actually entered what you gave us; but you only gave us 15 names.  We need 20.

Technically your roster is trimodal, with modes at 90, 75, and 72.  I manually changed it because Excel's output of 90 would be misleading.

So far we're still at four players.  I'd love to get a couple more in before the game starts (although they would all be subject to 14-day waiting period).  Please pimp the game to anyone you think would be interested.

I'll upload the spreadsheet before January 1 for everyone's reference.

Damn.  I seem not to have saved the spreadsheet I made up.  Not sure how that happened.  I'll have to recreate it before adding yours, High Pockets.

Just so you're aware, the two-week waiting period for your entries will end January 4.  Any deaths occurring between now and January 4 will not count, but you will be allowed to submit a replacement entry.

I'm on board with the 14 day rule, I kept meaning to make up my list, and procrastinated. with a slow down at work I had an opportunity to think about what I wanted to do.

I'm going to sit down and work on the spread sheet tonight.  After a day spent with my 3- and 5-year-old, that'll be welcome relaxation.
