How can I make my office's Melbourne Cup sweep

I've just been given the very important responsibility of organising my office's Melbourne Cup sweep. Now I'm perfectly happy to print and cut up the newspaper's form guide the way every other office does it, but I'd like to make it a bit more interesting than every other year.
Is there reading about best practices in organising sweepstakes and pools I should know about? Are there common side-games that I could run? I'd be very interested in stories about particularly notable office pools.
- for non-Australasian answerers: office sweeps for the Melbourne Cup are entirely legal and indeed a national obligation.
- we are forbidden access from our corporate network to "gambling" websites.
