    Lightbulb 2013 NRL Tipping Competition

    Hi all

    I've been in touch with ssrattus and it doesn't look like he will be running a NRL tipping comp this year.

    If anyone is interested, I've been running a social comp for a few years (with an entry fee of $40), so any austech members are more than welcome to come over to the dark side and part with some cash .

    It started out as a tipping comp for work and for the last few years I've limited it to 200 players. If I get the same again, I will be handing out another $8000 throughout the season.

    If you want to check it out, click here:

    Note: The site is currently in 'rego mode' so there's not a lot you can see/do at the moment, but it's pretty basic and easy to use.

    Cheers
    Rod

    PS: I can assure you it's all legitimate (trust me ), so don't be concerned that you are giving $40 to a complete stranger who will run off with your hard earned!

    Sounds good guys ... I'm closing off registrations on 22nd Feb, so plenty of time.

    I can also group tipsters into different 'teams' or 'leagues' so we can have an Austech one if there's enough interest.

    Thought I'd post a screen shot of the tipping screen that players will use for their tips

    Just giving this a little bump

    We're up to 67 tipsters, with prizemoney currently sitting at $2680.

    Idea If you have a tipping comp at work and your workmates are happy to 'invest' $40, why not get them to signup as well. As I said earlier, I can group everyone together to see who's the best in your office!

    Hi Tony

    Not sure what payment details you are after?

    It costs $40 to enter and there's a bank account number for the money to go into. If you are talking about how you collect a prize, then I would contact the winner and ask for their account details and credit the cash via internet banking.

    If you visit , there's an info page that explains most things.

    Cheers
    Rod

    Thanks for letting me know mate. Looks like the mail server is down at my web host. It's erroring on the mail send script so I'll keep an eye on it tonight and let you know when it's back up.

    OK, give it a go now ... the mail server is still down, but I've put in place a workaround that will still record your details (it just won't send a confirmation email).

    All good mate

    For any others interested, rego is due to close this Friday so don't leave it too late. We have over 140 players at the moment with prizemoney of $5500+ in the kitty.

    I am sending a final reminder around at work this week, so numbers will jump up considerably (plenty of spots will be available as I've increased the maximum to 250).

    Received the confirmation email OK on my work (secondary) email but not on my main email. My isp, iinet, does not accept emails that do not adhere to strict rules. ie the reverse DNS has to be valid for the mail server.

    Austech members, no NRL tipping on Austech this year, there just have been too few members joining and continuing through out the year.

    Spend a few bob for a chance to win lots more and join AussieM8's tipping competition if you want.



    PS the email issue seems to be resolved, received an email on my main account.
