The Almanac-Fitzroy Rotary Pick One Competition

Rotary logo


Greetings and welcome to the 29th year of the Pick One Winner Competition


The Rotary Club of Fitzroy is pleased to announce a partnership with Footy Almanac – the marvellous literary insight into football from the intelligent, community-engaged, humorous and independent interpreters of our great game. The Footy Almanac is promoting the Pick One Comp as a way of linking Almanackers with worthy community projects.


2015 Competition 1 begins in Round 3 (April 17)

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 and Mentoring Services, Medical Research, Sports and Arts Scholarships and Environmental projects.


Multiple Entries and 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 two bonus tips.


Basic Rules

  1. Tips have to be in before the round begins – 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 2015 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 R3 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 3, certainly no later than April 30.
