O.P. « 2020-Feb-05, 05:47 PM »
Next Saturday we have our first Group1 race for the long Autumn season.  There were a few of us interested in a competition last Spring, so let's do it again.

This year I won't take on as big a load as back in the Spring.

I'll run it as follows.

(1) Competition starts Saturday February 8; concludes Saturday April 18.

(2) Each week-end, I will nominate five races, all Black-type. Races will be on this site on the preceding Wednesday or Thursday.

(3) Each selection will carry a hypothetical NSW TAB $10 each way bet.  Scratchings or omitted races will be credited with $20.

(4) Competitors must make at least one selection a week to be in the race for points that week.

(5) The top 5 competitors each weekend will gain points: 5/4/3/2/1

(6) Points will accumulate each week,

At present there are no prizes - just bragging rights - but any offer of prizes would be gratefully received.

"Scratchings or omitted races will be credited with $20."

Are you sure?

Does that mean those who don't tip will be credited with $20?

I wanted to allow contestants to be able to decide not to make a selection in a given race if that was what they wanted. To be in the running for the points for the day, they would have to make a selection in at least one of the five races. I will add that condition to the list.

Frankly I don't think it is in the spirit of the comp to be selective and not tip in each race.

If I was to do that this week I'd select R4 No 7 Rulership and leave it at that.

I probably won't be available for last few weeks but I'll see how that practice goes and whether that would do me better than my effort at tipping in each race.  :/

Yes, SW.  I worked on the names rather than the numbers when there was a disconnect. Perhaps I should add that to the groundrules.

Yes, I has you down for that winner but I messed up the transcription and put you down for 34 instead of 39.  Sorry.
