    Ok - rules I am suggesting - happy to discuss.

    Starting bank: 500 units
    Minimum spend each Saturday: 20% of current bank (or 30 units - whichever is larger)
    Maximum spend per selection: 10% of bank
    Minimum spend per selection: 1% of bank (or 5 units - whichever is larger)
    Multiple selections in the same race allowable so long as minimum spend requirement is met.

    Must make 6 selections per Saturday anywhere in AUSTRALIA
    THIS WEEKS DEADLINE FOR TIPS IS 11 AM SATURDAY AEST
    Win bets only - prices paid as Best of 3 Totes/SP (scratching = money back)

    Given the nature of the scoring you have to sign up before the comp kicks off.

    Holiday rule - each tipster may pre-notify 3 Saturdays over the year in which they will not tip. There will be no loss of bank on those days.
    No show in any given week = loss of a holiday, then loss of 50% of bank (or 40 units - whichever is larger) if no holidays remain.
    SO YOU CAN ONLY MISS 3 SATURDAY'S OVERALL ALL YEAR

    I’m in. I’ll just take number 3 race 3 in 6 different meetings each Saturday for the minimum stake. Can you work it out and track it for me too? Thanks, see you in December to collect my prize.

    If this is a year long thing my bet is that everyone will give up by half way through with the miss a tip day lose 40% of your bank rule! what about those who go away or do not have time to do the form for various reasons!!

    i don't even start saturday form until about 8am saturday AEST and takes 3-6 hours depending on how many meetings in the state. and i don't have the attention span for a year.

    Are you one of the 12 consistently winning racing punters in the country? If not why do you waste 6 hours every Saturday doing form?

    for each meeting there is a set routine, first make a coffee, thats about 20mins. then i settle down and open the form, before getting too busy i make breakfast thats about 50mins. then i get back into it, normally spend 15 procrastinating before i get distracted for about 30mins then it's a 10 min opening up of the form guide before circling all pike's rides then crossing them out and backing C.Parnham at twice the odds to win one third of the amount. then you know, on to meeting two.

    how else do people spend their saturday?

    Damn, I was hoping you were going to say 5 and half hours of it was taken up trying to remember the 1653 equations that go into your staking plan.

    there's that too but the actual amount of equations is around 94 and they vary from 0.8% to 5% bank per bet so as long as it's in that window i'm happy to just whack it on if time doesn't allow.

    Perhaps each tipster gets 3 'holidays' a year where they can miss a Saturday? Thoughts?

    Easier to track/keep people in line/almost all tipping services are based around Saturday tips
