Last year, following nine seasons as official player sponsor of two-time premiership player Travis Varcoe from the day he was drafted, we continued on with the number 5 guernsey by backing Nakia Cockatoo. After a season getting a taste for it and showing glimpses, this is the year we all hope he pushes to become a consistent player in the hoops.
The moderators and I invite you to become part of the official player sponsor of Nakia Cockatoo in 2016 through BigFooty and give yourself a great chance at winning some unique prizes.
Cockatoo falls within the 'Academy' bracket, which this year puts his sponsorship $1,820.00. Please note that this is at a significant discount to the value of Varcoe's sponsorship in recent years, so again there will be fewer stakes required in 2016. As usual BigFooty will be putting in the first $200.
Unless we fail to reach that level, we will only accepting one $50 pledge per person - first in, best dressed.
Payments are now closed.
Every $50 payment is effectively another chance in the draw, however only one prize will be awarded to any single person. These prizes are for you - if you can't use them, or give them to a family member or friend, then please consider the other people who are contributing and I will reallocate them. The reallocation of prizes will be conducted in the most practical way (but hopefully will not be required). We are not eligible for any prizes. The prize winner list will be posted on BigFooty once finalised.
Unless you otherwise specify, the prize draw will be conducted in the following order:
Two (2) tickets to the Geelong Cats Season Launch at Crown Casino Palladium (Tuesday 23 February), seated with Nakia Cockatoo and invitation to attend a pre-Season Launch function exclusive to player sponsors and players.
A 2016 Geelong Cats Guernsey signed by Nakia Cockatoo
One (1) Premiership membership: guaranteed option to purchase a Grand Final ticket should the Cats compete
One (1) Geelong Cats Adult Home 11 Membership
Inner sanctum experience at an open training session with your sponsored player (six tickets available) - note this year all attendees must be Geelong members
If your prize preference differs from the above list, send me a your preferred list via PM when you pay your pledge.
The prize draw will hopefully take place within two weeks from today (16 February), allowing a week's notice for the winner of the season launch tickets.
