The extremely popular BCM Footy Tipping Competition has been run and won for another year. Our competition has now been running for 18 consecutive years and become one of the most popular and longest running tipping competitions within the Road Profiling Industry. Choosing winners in both the NRL and AFL fixtures over the entire season makes this a unique challenge and an opportunity for the Footy Tragic or a Footy Novice to come away winners at the end of the season. 39 tipsters of all ages competed this year for the glory of being the Champion Tipper and getting their name on the Shield, not to mention the substantial prize money on offer for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, and of course the dreaded Wooden Spoon for the lowest place tipper is what we all tried to avoid.
This season Jemma Gore and Daniel Berry tied for 2nd place with a total of 254 correct tips, a great effort from Jemma in her 1st year and Daniel a past winner in 2014 remains Mr Consistent at collecting a top 3 place.
The Wooden Spoon Shield this year goes to Adrian Pye. Adrian finished in last place with the entire weight of the ladder on his shoulders with a total score of 200. Better luck next year Adrian and maybe take another look at those algorithms you used to pick the winners.
But the loudest applause is reserved for this year’s winner. In his 3rd attempt and the 1st year where he hasn’t been in the running for the Wooden Spoon, Nathaniel Kenyon a Gold Coast Suns supporter gets his name permanently engraved on the prestigious BCM Tipping Competition Winners Shield with a total score of 256 correct tips.
This year is the last year that Steve Gawley will be running the competition, Steve has decided the time has come for him to hand over the reigns of his beloved Tipping Competition to Jemma Gore. On behalf of all tippers past and present I would like to thank Steve for the way he has returned the competition back to its former glory after it fell into a lean period a few years back.
