2017: Super Tipping Competition 2017 - registration closes in 1 day (payment due 27/1)

G'day everyone!

I haven't been overly active on this site for a while but I've been keen to run a competition like this for a while. I recall a couple of years back this site ran a full year tipping competition across most sports but I missed the cutoff to join and was pretty disappointed as it seemed like fun. I don't think the site has done a similar competition since, so I thought I'd give organising one a go.

If you're like me and enjoy keeping up to date across all sports, then please express your interest on this thread as I would like to get an idea of numbers. I have set-up the excel sheet and rules which I will post so that people can have a look at the layout. I have organised with a moderator to have a $20 entry fee to enter the competition, as this keeps it interesting throughout the year because prizes are involved. This will not be ordinary tipping competition where players put in their tips at the start of the year and never look at them again. For many of the events I have included 'opportunity for change' windows, where players can change their tip at a specified point in the season but receive less points for the correct tip.

All the rules are copy and pasted below. If you think this sounds like a good idea just chuck a post with your e-mail address so that I can e-mail you the excel document.

The rules are as follows:


1) Each player is to select a tip for each event no later than January 12, 2017 at 11:59pm.

- Each tip selected for events that indicate 'started' in column C will be locked in, and unable to be changed (unless a change window is specified)
- Other tips can be changed as often as players like BEFORE the start date indicated by column C. For example: the AFL start date is March 23. Tips for the AFL can be changed as often as tipsters like up until March 22, 11:59pm. Changes may NOT be made on March 23, as all changes must be made prior to the start date commencing.
- Horse Racing tips will become available as soon as the field becomes available.

1.1) A correct tip will be awarded the corresponding points in column F.
- If a tip is changed during the opportunity window, the correct tip will be awarded the corresponding points from the deducted points in column G.

2) Some events have a 'change opportunity window' which indicates a period of time whereby the initial tip selected by the player may be changed, should the player desire.
- During this period, a player may make a MAXIMUM of 1 change to the specific event. Once this change is made, the decision is locked and no further changes will be allowed.
- If a player chooses to change their tip, and this changed tip is correct, they will receive a deducted amount of points, with the amount specified in column G.
- The tip must be changed within the specified period for that event; any changes outside that period will not be accepted.

2.1) Admin must be made aware of this change of tip before the cutoff time in ONE of the following ways:
a) Official post to Super Tipping Thread; OR
b) Private message to Admin (sammy96); OR
c) Email to admin email address ([email protected]).

Two types of changes are avalable and therefore a player must specify what type of change they are making
a) General Tip Change: a change made to an event prior to it its start date
b) Penalty Tip Change: a change made to an event during the 'change opportunity window'
Examples: a) General Tip change to event #26, AFL Premiership Winner: FROM Adeliade TO Gold Coast Suns.
b) Penalty Tip change to event #13, NBA Winner: FROM Miami Heat TO Utah Jazz.


3) A double points option is available for the golf and tennis major tournaments only.
- Each player is to select ONE golf major and ONE tennis Grand Slam to have as their double points option (mens and ladies event).
- The double points selection cannot be changed after January 12, 2017 at 11:59pm.

- Place a 'DP' or 'YES' in column H to indicate which major you wish to use double points. The selected tip can still be changed up until the start date indicated in column C.

- Place a 'DP or 'YES' in column H to indicate which Grand Slam you wish to use double points. This Grand Slam will then serve as your double points selection for BOTH the mens and ladies event.
For example: if I choose the French Open as my double points Grand Slam, I will place 'DP' in both the mens and ladies singles events for the French Open.
- Seperate Grand Slams CANNOT be selected for mens and ladies events; the same Grand Slam must apply.

4) Please notes that all times within the spreadsheet are AEST and are subject to change.
-Any changes to cutoff dates or times will be made known to all participants both on the tipping thread and via e-mail.
- The Tour de France rest day #1 will be an opportunity for change, and the exact date will be made available when known.
- Those players outside the AEST time zone may make this known to admin, who will provide a spreadsheet with the specific cutoff times and dates for their relevant time zone (if they wish).

5) An entry fee of $20 will be necessary to enter the competition, which will go back in prizes to the top few. Exact distribution of money will depend on amount of entries and will be specified once this is known. The entry fee is designed to keep the player interested throughout the duration of the competition.

6) For any questions or feedback please feel free to email [email protected] or message sammy96 directly on SCS.
