The Jan Davis Memorial Silvertails Tipping comp for 2015 is open for business. Before you can play you need to pay. $25.00 per head again, and that gets you in the mix for some great prizes. We will be running the Last Fan Standing and the lucky tipper comps again as well, one payment gets you entry into all 3 comps. We will provide more detail on the prizes etc at a later date. The format is slightly different than previous years because of the new forum platform. The tipping comp is a third party app tailored to our needs by Dan, so hopefully it should run nicely with the new forum software. The scoring system is exactly the same as previous years, 2 points per correct pick and 1 bonus game per week worth 4 points for a correct pick. You have to pick the score in the bonus game as the differentiator for weekly winner prizes. So before you can sign up and enter your tips you need to pay. Go to your "User Profile", which is the little avatar image in the top RH corner of the page (next to the envelope and the flag). You can click on this to be taken to the page or hover over it to see the options available. Either way you want to look for and click on the "Account Upgrades" link. This will take you to the page where you can see all the extra upgrades you can purchase. You are looking for the "2015 Tipping Competition" upgrade. Click on "Purchase" and you will be redirected through Paypal to make the payment. Once you have confirmed payment you are OK to start playing.

Just takes a little longer for the process, so don't leave it till the day before season kickoff. Once you payment has been confirmed you are right to enter the comp.
