This thread highlights the info regarding the 2015 GreyhoundScene Sky Tipsters Competition, again very kindly sponsored by Dunham Greyhound Centre. We're up and running this Tuesday 13/01/2015 so please ensure you get your selections in and encourage any newcomers you can to join in too as the more the competition, the better the feelgood factor if you win
Our 2015 comp will again finish wish an additional bonus comp between the top-16 positions with 4 meetings to go. Competitors will automatically be entered into a knock-out cup for these last 4 meetings. Bonus comp rules will be issued at a later date but the main comp rules are as follows:
Each entry thread will appear in the main discussion thread and also in each respective track sections as soon as the final card is available, usually 2 days before the race-day. This is where you place your selections for the competition.
Make a single selection for each live race (usually 8 in total), in the following format (please note that any line differing this format will be deducted 1 point):
21.04 – T4 – Westmead Hawk
Also mark two of your selections with NAP and NB to incur 20 bonus points if both are successful
Where the trap number and greyhound name stated are not the same the trap number will be taken as the selection. Any uncertainty over selection will see that entry voided.
Entries can be declared as soon as each Sky meeting selection thread is posted and EDIT can be used to record any change of mind, ie in the event of a non-runner, etc. Late entries will be accepted minus the appropriate races.
Amendments can be made though the system timed adjustment will be the first point your selections will be taken from.
If any selection is a non-runner or replaced and no amendment is logged, then the selection will be scored on the trap replacement if runs or in the case of a non-starter/vacant trap, the favourite (nearest to trap 1 in the case of Joint-Favourites).
Should anyone be going on holiday or otherwise indisposed to access the internet an advance entry will be accepted if sent directly to myself by private message detailing selections.
For 2015, the points system will be slightly different to reward selections finishing in the front end of each race, as follows:
1st Place – 10 Points
2nd Place – 7 Points
3rd Place – 5 Points
4th Place – 3 Points
5th Place – 2 Points
6th Place – 1 Point
DISQUALIFIED runners will receive ZERO points.
Each entrant can earn enhanced points by correctly selecting a NAP and NB for each meeting earning a 20 point bonus if BOTH are successful.
The maximum points score to be obtained per meeting is 100: assuming 8 winners and the bonus for correct NAP and NB is obtained.
Dead-Heats will be paid at the highest position, e.g. if dead-heat for 2nd place, both selections will be awarded 6 points.
Scores shall appear in the 'Sky Tipster Comp Leaderboard & Scores - 2015 thread'
Please contact me directly in the event of any uncertainty throughout the competition.
