Yes!
I do all the work each and every week including posting all weekly games every Sunday and updating all contestants point totals each week, etc. I post the winners of all weekly games and updated point totals each week so there is a continuous record of all weekly activities.
Thanks for asking.
P.S. - We only pick on average 10 games per week!
