Well the tipping season is done and dusted for another year, we can now concentrate on Manly's surge through another finals series. But before we put away the form guides for another year we need to acknowledge the best Silvertails tippers for 2013. If you've just tuned in we have already established that the top 5 finishers this year were @Clint - 290 @mickqld - 290 @Stiffi - 290 @"Kiwi Eagle" - 288 @"the mauler" - 288 So after 26 rounds of tipping we have a 3 way tie. Unbelievable !! All 3 of these tippers correctly picked the Cowboys in the bonus game against the Tigers, so this years winning tipper will be determined by how close to the 28 point margin they could get. This years 2013 Jan Davis Tipping Comp Runner Up receives a $150.00 merchandise voucher to spend up big on Manly gear in preparation for our 9th Premiership. And with a nominated score of 30-16 and a margin 14 points off the actual margin this years runner up is ...... @Stiffi Great job by Stiffi, who seemed was on top of the leaderboard for 3/4 of the season, so much so I ran out of double entendres for my weekly wraps. Unlucky to come up just short after being the front runner for so long, but surely the great prize will soften the blow. So without further ado we can announce that the 2013 Sea Eagles Fan Hubs Tipping Comp Winner with a nominated score of 34-16 and 10 short of the actual margin is.................. @mickqld Mick has pulled off a phenomenal effort to top the tipping as he has not once tipped Manly this year in fear of breaking his traditional pessimistic outlook on Manly chances each week Well done Mick, you've won yourself a 2014 Family Season Pass Membership Package courtesy of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. Spare a thought for our defending champ @Clint who picked a score of 28-16 to just miss out on going back to back by a converted try. Great effort mate. Clint's disappointment will be tempered somewhat by the knowledge he managed to take out our inaugural Earnie The Eagle Last Fan Standing Comp, and I'm sure he'll be parading around in his fantastic Cliffy autographed jersey. And let's not forget @Roger winning the lucky tipper prize to take home a 2012 Jersey signed by our Co-Captains Killer and Kingy....just for taking the time to sign up and help out. We also gave away over 30 double passes to Brookie for our weekly tipping winners, courtesy again of this great club of ours. Hopefully all those weekly winners had a great time at Brookie and took away some good memories. So a great big thanks to @Larissa and the MWSE Club for sponsoring our tipping comp this year and offering up some great prizes. Also thanks to Dave and the others at the club that helped out with distributing the weekly prizes. Really appreciate the assistance of @vidmar and the Footy Club ( http://www.manlyfootballclub.com.au/ ) with their help in securing some of the great signed jersey prizes. Also a big thanks to Russ (@Mybludog) for donating a jersey that will get a run next year as one of our prizes. We have a couple of other members who kindly donate prizes anonymously in honour of our competition patrons. Much appreciated. Cheers to @SeaEagleRock8 who helped me getting things fired up at the start of the season as well. I think you'll all agree that the prizes we had on offer this year were awesome and we couldn't have done it without the assistance of those listed above. Finally a big thanks to all of you who signed up to the Tipping Comp this year and parted with some of your hard earned to help keep this site going. This place has always been a labour of love for @Dan and it's important for Silvertails future that it can become financially viable, especially given Dan's impending career move. You can already see some of the benefits of your contribution with the recent site upgrade. Our aim is to make this place a vibrant online community that caters to ALL Manly fans, and your support in that endeavour is crucial. So if you didn't sign up this year have a think about getting on board next year.....it's the ONLY way you are going to be in the running for some great prizes. Go Manly !!!!!!!!
