The Tenerife Cup The Tenerife Cup is the name of the annual award given to the entrant who has scored the most Total Points in our Dead Pool contest. It was first awarded to the winner of the 1979 contest. It is named for the city in the Canary Islands who's airport (Los Rodeos) is noted for its air/ground control screwups: directing a 747 into the side of a mountain; having two planes on a foggy runway, one crossing, the other trying to take off (March 27, 1977; Pan American & KLM jumbo jets full of German tourists; 583 killed). Sort of like Detroit Metro during a blizzard or power outage!

Since we don't have an actual "cup" to award, the winner receives a certificate of award instead (yeah, we know, big whoop). Recipients of the "cup" have been:
