Almanac Invitation: Rotary Club of Fitzroy “Pick One Winner Competition”

Greetings and welcome to the 31st year of the Pick One Winner Competition

The Rotary Club of Fitzroy is pleased to invite your participation in Pick One Winner Competition.


2017 Competition 1 begins in Round 4 (April 13) 

Anticipated Prize Pool of $3000+
To be eligible for the prize pool, you need to pick a winning AFL team each week.
Entries are $15

Of the $15, $10 goes into the prize pool as usual and $5 goes towards Rotary community initiatives such as Youth Support & Mentoring Services, Medical Research, Sports & Arts Scholarships and Environmental projects.


Multiple Entries & Bonus Tips

You can have as many tips as you like @ $15 per entry
You can invite others to participate – for every 10 entries you organise you receive 2 bonus tips.


Basic Rules

  1. Tips have to be in before the round begins (with the exception of Rounds with Thursday games as all team selections may not be known that early). Late entries get the bottom side as their selection; non-entries also get the bottom side – so don’t forget!
  2. A draw is not a win – a draw means elimination from the competition
  3. The competition continues until there is a winner or winners (5 or less remaining tipsters can share the prize pool if their decision is unanimous).
  4. If all live tipsters are eliminated in the same round, they will be restored to the competition if the dividend is less than $100.

(That is not likely to happen but, just in case, we have a way of managing it)

  1. Due to the weakening of the AFL competition in recent years, it is important to avoid predictability in the tipping. Thus in 2016 the tipping restrictions are as follows : You cannot select against the 3 bottom teams prior to a round commencing. (That is why the comp starts in R4 so you get a feel for form and a bottom 3 is defined)


Payment of Entry Fees

Payment is preferred before the competition begins in Round 4, certainly no later than April 30.
