    The field posted another strong performance, going 32-9 (5-0 on tokens) for 101 of 128 possible points (trip: 520/785).
    However, nobody will go 7-0 on this trip, so no bonuses.

    Below are the current standings.
    Please check back after tomorrow's game for detailed standings and very important instructions regarding entries for the last trip.
    Those in contention for one or both major prizes MUST submit their entries to me exclusively by private message, or be summarily disqualified.
    The entry thread for the last trip will be exclusively for the bonus contest for contestants eliminated from contention for any major prize.
    Full details to follow, including deadlines and the form and content of entries for the last trip.

    The Kings closed out Road Trip #5 in style. Our contestants went 15-26 (0-6 on tokens) with correct score predictions by JWR, Nyssa42 and Parenchymal, scoring 48 of 170 possible points (trip: 568/955).

    Turning to the scores, as the late Jim Perry would say before a game-ending Speed Round on "$ale of the Century," "Well, it's catch Troyvsc time."
    Below are the standings, with (number of remaining tokens in parentheses) [maximum score in brackets] {bonuses in braces}.
    Please continue reading for final remarks and very important instructions for entries to Road Trip #6 . Do not get disqualified out of a major cash prize.

    E1.) 37 points

    E1 = mathematically ineligible to win or tie for the first prize, but mathematically eligible to win or tie for the second prize

    The mean average of the remaining contestants' scores is 46.81. The median average is 47. The mode average is {46, 48}.
    The maximum first prize is $360. The maximum second prize is $68.

    Special Instructions:

    Road Trip #6 consists of the following games:
    Mon Mar 19 5pm @ MIN
    Tue Mar 20 5pm @ WPG
    Thu Mar 22 6pm @ COL
    Sat Mar 24 7pm @ EDM

    If your name appears on the list above (including those designated E1), your valid entry for Road Trip #6 must be sent to me by private message anytime between now and noon on Thursday, March 15. (I leave for Philly on the morning of the 16th and want to have the main contest entries recorded ahead of time.) Your valid entry consists of three parts: (1) your win/loss predictions for each of the four games, plus your score prediction for the Edmonton game; (2) your PayPal address or, failing that, the name and address to which any prize should be sent; and (3) either the word SPLIT (if, in the event you tie for one or more major prizes, you would like the prize money to be split among all those tied) or the word DRAW (if, in the event you tie for one or more major prizes, you would like a random draw to determine a single winner for each prize). If your entry is incomplete or unclear in any way, you may be allowed to complete or clarify it before the deadline; however, no substantive change to any win/loss or score prediction may be made for any reason. Remember that any unused tokens after the last trip have a zero value and will not factor in any tiebreak. Use 'em or lose 'em.

    Until the deadline passes, you may not post your predictions, or any other comments about the upcoming road trip/contest, here or on the entry thread for Road Trip #6 , which will be exclusively for those not in contention for a major prize (i.e., not on the list above). If you do, you will be summarily disqualified. I don't like DQ'ing anybody, and I got nauseous when it looked like it might cost someone several hundred dollars last year, but the idea is that none of those still in contention should have any idea of another's thinking until after the deadline.

    If I have not received your entry by noon on March 8 or noon on March 14, I will send you a reminder by private message (unless you ask me not to).

    The rules for the bonus contest will be set forth in the entry thread for Road Trip #6 , which will appear approximately one week before the first game of the trip.

    Please note that nobody is penalized by starting Road Trip #6 in the main contest rather than the bonus contest (except for the earlier deadline).
    As each contestant is eliminated from the main contest, his or her valid entry for Road Trip #6 becomes his or her entry in the bonus contest.
    Please also note that nobody is penalized for early or late use of their tokens. For purposes of any category of elimination, it is assumed that all of the contestant's remaining tokens win (and all of the leaders' remaining tokens lose, except for tokens bet on a game/games where the leader's prediction(s) match(es) that/those of the contestant in question).

    Now is the time to bring all your "strategy, luck and knowledge" (to quote another game show, "Bullseye") to bear.
    Good luck and GO KINGS GO!!!
