Last Round

What a last round this was, especially with the effect it had on the final top eight ladder positions.

After the Hawthorn win on Saturday, we only had 3 people left with the possibility of getting that magical 9/9. No luck but we did have four people select 8/9. Here we say “well done” to Roger Hooper, Elsie Muenchow, Evan Reid and Steve Taylor.

Our winner this year on a great score of 127 was Mike Eames #2. Mike collects $250-00 for his great tipping.

Three games behind Mike on 124 we have a three way tie for second between Gail Harper, G F Peacock and Steve Taylor. They share second and third prize money and collect $100-00 each.

Just one game further back on 123, we have Mark Chamberlain, Greg Harper and Natasha Wilson. They finish in 5th position (there are four in front of them) and finish just out of the money.

As the jackpot was not won it goes to the person at the bottom of the ladder and here on 99 games was Della Chamberlain. Della was one game clear of Evan Reid who was on 100 after picking 8/9 this week and collects $360-00.

Over the season we have had 22 people share in the $1,470-00 we pay out, with $820-00 profit being made for the tennis club. For those who have won money during the season, we will be at the tennis club around 10-00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week to pay you

Many thanks for everyone who participated in our competition and we hope you (and your friends) will join us again next season.

A special thanks to Steve Doig for getting all the weekly information onto the club website so people could check their results.


Thanks to Chris & Nola for their work during the season organising the footy tipping competition.

Round 22 (16th August)

Well we are nearly there and did anyone select the 9/9 this weekend – the answer is NO. We did have six people select 7/9 (don’t know how they do it) and we say well done to Mark Chamberlain, Annette Peacock, Danika Squiers, Margaret Whittington, Peter Whittington and Donald Wilson.

With just one round to go our leaders are :-

  • On 120 – Mike Eames #2
  • On 118 – Gail Harper
  • On 117 – Mark Chamberlain, Greg Harper, G F Peacock, Denise Pruim, Natasha Wilson
  • On 116 – Steve Taylor and Brian Wren

We have already had $560-00 claimed and next weekend we have a further $910-00 that will be won.

First, Second and Third prize money totals $550-00.

With no winner this week our jackpot hits $360-00 which MUST BE COLLECTED either by people selecting the 9/9 OR collected as “unclaimed monies” by the person at the bottom of our ladder. At this end we currently have Evan Reid on 92, Della Chamberlain on 95 and Jenny Edwards on 98.

It will certainly be an exciting finish to this years Tipping Competition.

Good luck everyone.


Round 21 (9th August)

This week gave us some good results with one person just 39 seconds away from taking out our jackpot…

Mike Kessell scored 8/9 and missed St Kilda beating Fremantle by kicking a goal 39 seconds before the final siren. Bad luck Mike, but great tipping anyway.

Mike Eames #2 remains our leader and is on a score of 116. In second place on 114 is Denise Pruim, followed by Greg Harper and Natasha Wilson both on 113, then on 112 we have Betty Hanley, Gail Harper and G F Peacock.

With just two weeks to go it would be hard for anyone outside this group to win our competition, but then, funnier things have happened.

With no winner again this week our jackpot hits a record high of $320-00 for next week. Keeping in mind that if the jackpot is not won on the LAST week, whatever the jackpot is worth is paid to the person at “the Other” end of our ladder. Currently sitting on 89 we have Evan Reid, followed by Della Chamberlain on 91 and Danika Squiers on 94. We would imagine that Evan would have his fingers crossed at this stage.

Good luck to everyone for their tipping for next week.


Round 20 (2nd August)

We had some great tipping results this weekend and although no one selected 9/9, we did have three people select 8/9 winners. These very clever people were Russell Coleman, Helen Doig and Natasha Wilson. Fabulous results to all three.

Mike Eames #2 remains our leader and is now on 110, followed on 108 by Greg Harper and Natasha Wilson, then on 107 we have Denise Pruim and Faye Scorer, followed on 106 by Mark Chamberlain, Betty Hanley and G Peacock. Four people are just one game further back on 105. With just three games to go, the winners could come out of this leading group.

With no winner AGAIN, next weekend is now worth $280-00 so fingers crossed we get a few winners next weekend.
Hope you have all tipped well.


Round 19 (July 26th)

This was a terrible weekend to try and pick winners. In fact the highest score this week was 6/9 and only three people managed to do that. We say well done to Norm Beaton, Jim Sellers and Stella Squiers for picking 6 winners each.

Our leader is Mike Eames #2 who is on 103, followed by Greg Harper on 102, Steve Doig on 101 and five others on 100 – Don Doig, Betty Hanley, Denise Pruim, Faye Scorer and Natasha Wilson. BEWARE – the ladies are on their way !!!!

Next week our jackpot hit $240-00 so we hope we get a few to share this amount as we head towards the finish line
Good luck folks!


Round 18 (July 19)

Once again this proved to be a hard week to select winners. The best tipping this week was 7/9 and this was achieved by just four people – Mike Kessell, G Peacock, SKID, and Geoff Winston. Congrats guys on some excellent tipping.

We now have a change in the ladder leadership with Mike Eames #2 now our leader on 99. Mike is two games clear with Don Doig, Steve Doig, Betty Hanley, Greg Harper and Natasha Wilson all on 97, with Faye Scorer on 96. Well done to you all.

Next week our jackpot hits the magical $200-00 so hope everyone has some great tipping in for next week.


Round 17 (12th July)

What a terrible round that was to try and select a winner. After Friday night’s game we only had 7 people left in the competition to win the jackpot this week and it got harder after that. The highest score this week was 6/9 with most people scoring 5/9.

Our leader is still Don Doig and Don is on a score of 94. Right next to him on 93, we have Mike Eames #2 and Greg Harper, and on 92 we have Mark Chamberlain, Steve Doig and Natasha Wilson.

Just out of interest, how is our tipping going compared to the 24 “so called experts” in the West Australian Newspaper? – after last weekend when Don Doig was on 89, ONLY ONE expert was on a higher score than Don, and that was Dennis Commetti.

With no winner again this week we have $160-00 for the jackpot next week so good luck !!


Round 16 (5th July)

What a terrible week to try and find a winner. The results this week ranged from 1/9 to 7/9 and only three people scored the 7/9. They are Jenny Edwards, Evan Reid and Geoff Winston.

Well done to the three of you. As a result our leader board has changed a bit too, and we have 8 people within 3 points of each other.

Clear at the top of the ladder is Don Doig on 89, followed by Greg Harper on 88, then we have Mark Chamberlain, Steve Doig, Mike Eames #2, and Natasha Wilson all on 87, with Betty Hanley and Faye Scorer both on 86.

As we had no winner this week the jackpot passes the $100-00 mark next weekend and is now worth $120-00 for anyone clever enough to scorer 9/9. Good luck to everyone – keep the fingers crossed.


Round 15 (27th June)

Well, what a terrible week to try and select winners. The average score this week was 5/9.

We did have two people select 7/9 and for this we congratulate Jim Sewell and Stella Squiers. Well done to the two of you.

We have a change at the top of our competition ladder which now has FOUR leaders – Mark Chamberlain, Don Doig, Steve Doig and Greg Harper – well done. They are all on 83, followed on 82 by Mike Eames #2 and Natasha Wilson.

With no winner this week, we have $80-00 up for the taking to anyone to select that 9/9 result so good luck to all.


Round 14 (June 20th)

With this being the last of the “Bye Rounds” we had some excellent tipping. In fact we had 8 people select 6/6 and a further 22 select 5/6.

Our winners this week selecting the magic 6/6 are Mark Chamberlain, Russell Coleman, Steve Doig, Mike Eames #1, David Kitto, Dan Sewell, Margaret Whittington and Peter Whittington. They share the jackpot of $40-00 and take home $5-00 each. Well done!

Our leader on a score of 79 is Natasha Wilson. Natasha is closely followed by Mark Chamberlain, Don Doig and Greg Harper who are all on 78, then we have Steve Doig, Mike Eames #2 and Betty Hanley on 77

Next week we return to having to select 9/9 with $40-00 reading for the taking so good luck everyone.
