1. Each competitor has 2 points to use every day there is an Irish racing meeting. The bet is either 2pts win or 1 pt e/w. If not specified the bet will be assumed to be 2pts win, whatever the price.
2. We'll use SP
3. No lays, place only, betfair prices, doubles, trebles etc
4. If there are two or more Irish meetings on that day there is still only one bet.
5. Each competitor has two 5 point bets to use during the competition. One bet to be used by December 6th (John Durkan Chase day) and the other to be used from December 7th until end of the comp (10th January). If somebody selects a 5 point bet, this horse may not be used as a 5 point bet by anyone else that day.
6. Bets are on Irish horse racing only.
7.Competitors may nominate in advance a "competition holiday" which must be taken in chunks of not least than a week (seems fair enough- winning tippers will make pts than holidays makers might lose )
8. Not posting unless stated on holiday for the week or fortinght will be the equivalent of a -1
9 Returns will NOT include your stake
10. Entrants will be accepted up to a week from tomorrow.
11. Entrants should be prepared to keep own score
12. Starts tomorrow (JNWine Chase day) ends on January 10th (Pierse Hurdle day).
13. All welcome to enter.

*Moneypenny has kindly offered to do the settling*

One bet to be used by December 6th (John Durkan Chase day) and the other to be used from December 7th until end of the comp (10th January).
