New Monthly Weekend Tipping Competition

Postby campbell64 » Wed Aug 03, 2016 5:04 am

I have had permission to start a new monthly tipping competition. This will be a fun competition with no prize initially. However should enough interest be shown the nice guys of OLBG will consider offering a prize :win:

Rules are simple and as follows.

One meeting will be selected on every Saturday of the month. Those who take part will be required to pick two selections in each race. Selection 1 will be the tip with selection 2 being a reserve in case of a none runner.

One selection should be chosen as a NAP which will score double points and one selection should be a NB is case the NAP is a non runner.

Points will be 5pts for a Win, 3 for a 2nd and 1 for a 3rd. Race handicaps with 16 runners or more the 4th place will also receive 1 point.

The winner will be the person who accumulates the most points through the course of the month.

Tips should read as follows (example purpose only)

Ascot
2.00 Red Rum. Reserve Tom Thumb
230 Forever Foxy Reserve Minnie Mix NB
3,00 Tea for Two NAP Reserve Made In China

and so on until a selection is made in each race, as well as a NAP, reserve and NB.

I will score and put tables up on a Sunday. Hope you all take part, its a bit of fun and who knows in time there may even be prizes.

We will kick off the month with Saturdays meeting at Ascot. Please tip using this thread. GOOD LUCK and lets have some fun.


No editing will be allowed once the meeting starts, any player who edits while the game is in play all selections prior to the edit will be deemed as null and void. In the event of a tie a race meeting will be chosen for a tip off.

Nice 1, i hope this gets far more interest than the Saturday prize Thread, which didn't get the best of numbers, however, the members who did post, posted some great stuff

Good luck with it I'll more than likely contribute if it's a race I've looked through. Word of advice make sure you double check which race the One A Day are on for the corresponding Saturday we could do without duplicated content across the forum :win:

Are you going to be having selections posted in this thread campbell64 apologies I misunderstood your intentions before I thought it was one race rather than an entire meeting. Also is this just tips or reasoning too?

Hi Derbz87

No comments required, just tips as explained in the original post. Its always confusing when something new comes along but basically it is the same as the old challenge ran by Gecko but one meeting every Saturday of each month. :win:
