    Hi all,

    We spoke a little about getting something like this off the ground at the end of last season.

    Wondering if people still want to join up and be a part of a Silvertails Punting club?

    If you are interested I am thinking of using something like

    http://www.PuntersClubHero.com/joinclub?jid=1239

    to run the club.

    I want this to only be a Rugby League based punt club though rather than mixing it with the GG's though we may add a special round for Melbourne Cup etc

    actually tying it to the sporting bet one may actually be better

    I'm keen but never been in a punters club before. How does it work? Do we place our own individual bets or for are they for the whole group? Either way sounds like fun.

    You can have 1 person per turn bet a % of the pot I think

    One person chooses the bet, they can continue the run as better usually until they fail to win more than the stake they put in but we can play with those rules a bit

    I need opinions on this. We can go with one group which will give us the ability to bet through that site and place all our bets.

    If we go via the sportsbet one, then we need to make our own bets externally.

    Both have their merits but I would rather see it all controlled through a single point.

    Hmm this is going to be a tough one to setup from over here and manage out of region/timezone, does anyone with experience with running or being part of a punters club want to put their hands up to facilitate this?

    I can put some feelers out mate. I have a friend that runs a pretty big punters club across all sports. It is all done with local guys though. Im not sure how it'd work across states & countries though.
    How do we want it to work?
    Do we have a pool of money, take it in turns to bet & then split the pool at the end of the year? Does the best punter of the year collect the pool? Are we betting across all sports? Horse racing, A-league, union, nrl, etc or just nrl? What happens if someone wants out half way through?
    My thoughts are something like this -
    All punters put in a set $$ amount
    Draw a punter at random to kick things off
    You can bet on any sport
    You bet once a week, by the Monday night of each week
    Punter continues to bet as long as they win back their stake each week
    Run the comp for a set period of time. Say til after the NRL GF.
    If you want out, bad luck you do your $$$
    If any $$ left at years end it is split in equal shares amongst punters
    Exotic multis are encouraged
    Special thanks to Ricky Ponting for sponsoring this thread
    Question - is this legal? Are we breaking any laws by doing this?

    my thoughts

    all punters $20 to enter
    each punter bets with that stake
    If he wins the $20 or more back he goes again with another $20
    Its the Punters choice on what he bets on
    the punter can bet anytime of the week
    if the punter loses its the the next punters turn

    Needs to be decided what minimum bet will be

    Generally how they run is everyone puts in amount each month/day/week

    We bet x percent each week, say 90%

    The rest goes into a kitty for later use.

    We have one better each week who takes the money and places the bet. If he wins more than he bet he keeps the bet for the following week. If he loses the bet the better changes to the next person on the list. The reason it's hard for me is that i can't open a betting account from over here
