The Round #1 Spreadsheet can be found here. Check back after Round #1 has concluded for the Round #1 point totals and your Round #2 entry form.
(Edit) I've created a separate spreadsheet to keep track of scoring here. It's pretty straight forward and all automatic. Pretty nifty if I do say so myself. I'll update this sheet after each series concludes so you can see how you're progressing.
