Welcome to the 2019-20 South Pacific cyclone season betting pools! Enjoy!

To keep it fun, don't bet on storms that have already formed!

No actual betting is going on here (that I'm aware of)

Note: After some discussion with Isaac some time ago, we're no longer going to include the "strangest storm" section in the betting pools, since it gets rather silly and off-topic from realistic predictions and discussion about TC's themselves.
