Semaphore SLSC Footy Tipping Competition 2017

The Semaphore SLSC Footy Tipping Competition is on again this season. Cost to enter remains at $50.00 per person & must be paid in full by the 3rd round of the AFL season. Obviously the more people that enter, the greater the prize pool will be. There will be prizes for those in 1st, 2nd & 3rd placing at the end of the season, as well as a prize for the tipster who comes 7th last. Prize money will be finalised once all money has been received. As per previous years if you put your selections in Thursday night over the bar at the club you receive a free drink (pint of keg beer or a glass of wine or a soft drink).

Full list of the competition rules will be given to those that enter the competition. If you are keen to be the best AFL tipster in the club & want bragging rights over other club members, please either put your name on the Footy Tipping Entry Form on the club’s upstairs notice board, or contact Chris Mahney at chris.mahney@peet.com.au prior to Tuesday 21st March 2017.

As an added bonus this year, any parent entering the main Footy Tipping Competition will have their children entered into a separate Footing Tipping Competition, just for those under 18 years of age (under 18 as at the start of the next surf season – 1st October 2017). There is no added cost for the juniors to participate, and with great prizes to be won, who wouldn’t want to participate?
