What you need to know about Tipping 
Tips for each game can be entered or edited at any time prior to the nominated game commencement time as published on the site.
Under no circumstances will tips be accepted after a game has commenced. 
If tippers do not enter tips for a game, round or join after the season has commenced they will be allocated the default score for non tippers as the away teams and a maximum default score for a round of 5.
Groups When entering the competition please nominate one of the following groups: Rotary Club of Doncaster. Rotary Club of Manningham, Rotary Club of Templestowe, Manningham City Council, Rotary Club of Warrandyte-Donvale, Other Organization. Nominating one of the above groups will allow you to compare the average score between the different groups of tippers within our competition. You can see which group is most successful overall or the success of an individual within a group.
Joker Rounds Each comp member can choose up to 2 rounds in which their regular tipping score is doubled. Joker rounds must be submitted before the first game of a round has commenced. They can be used on any round. What you need to know about Tipper Rankings. Tippers will be firstly ranked by their weekly score, where the highest score is the highest rank. Weekly winners will be determined by the user's weekly score for the round, then by a tippers 'Round Margin' and then by their 'Total Margin'.  End of season winners will be determined by total score, and then by their 'Total Margin' (and if drawn the Round Margin for that round).
What you need to know about Margins, The Margin Tippers are required to enter a winning team plus a margin for one game each round (the number of point’s team A will beat team B by). If you tip the winning Team and their exact winning margin, your 'Round Margin' will equal 0 points/goals (like golf, lower is better). If you pick the winning team, but not the winning margin, your 'Round Margin' will equal the difference between the actual game margin and the margin you tipped.

On Thursday 10th March several members of RCD attended a fundraising night for Nepal organised by RC of Eltham. The guest speaker was Mark 'Squiz' Squirrell OAM, Commando, humanitarian aid worker and Everest Summiteer who gave an inspiring presentation about his dangerous experiences in Gaza, climbing Mt Everest and other 'adventures'. It was a night of entertainment, Nepalese food and culture attended by over 100 people. Together with the Michael Parker Foundation Eltham Rotary sponsors the building of schools in Nepal, educating teachers and supplying education materials. Coincidently it was the late Michael Parker's birthday so the night had special significance for Gail and Bruce Parker. Over $17,000 was raised on the night from raffles, the sale of handicrafts, other donated items such as paintings, accommodation and so on.

20th April – The Beyond Water Global project - Sharon Crean (via ZOOM).
Sharon and her husband are Rotarians and started the project in 2007 in Kenya. They were presented with the fact that one billion people don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water and another two billion don’t have the use of a toilet. They gathered a team of volunteers who were enthusiastic in doing something to alleviate poverty in East Africa and started BeyondWater.
