The PUPS - all you were afraid to ask!

Recommended Posts

Image

If you've seen the PUPS thread that appears every week in the season and wondered whether it was open to everyone then the answer is YES! It is not some exclusive club, and new participants are always welcome, to boost the numbers and help a really worthwhile charity.

Just to explain the history, RAYS FUNDS, otherwise known as the PUPS, was started by my good friend Ray Ducker (Arrdee) to benefit the Norwich City Academy. From August 2013 the money raised each year has gone to the COMMUNITY SPORTS FOUNDATION and specifically the PAN-DISABILITY GROUPS. And this fund-raising is helped by the very generous support of our sponsors, TURNER EUROPEAN CONSULTING,  CAVELL HEALTHCARE & PUPANON.

How It Works

·         Every Wednesday during the season we start the new thread.

·         The 'Pink Un Pickers' (PUPs) then each choose one match from the weekend's fixtures and post that as their suggestion for a specific result. It is normally a home win but it can be an away win or a draw.

·         On the Friday evening the nominated picker from our PUPs rota selects six results from the week's suggestions and these half dozen selections become our £10 accumulator bet for the weekend.

·         We also keep track of the picks and publish a PUPs League. The league is determined by order of correct picks and is a fun competition for the message board.

·         There is no requirement to pay to play but obviously we need £400 per season which is met by PUPs each sending a tenner at the start of the season. But those who can’t pay or want to try it out for a week or so before committing themselves are still very welcome and are usually covered by those who can.

·         We also have a £10 NCFC MATCH BET funded by an anonymous benefactor, in which PUPs suggest specific bets on that weekend's game, and the nominated picker uses them and their own ideas to as to how to wager the tenner.

How much have we raised?

So far the total is more than £22,000! This has come not just from the two bets outlined above but from pledges, competitions and other donations thanks to the wonderful posters on the Pink Un message board. Here are the latest totals:-

Nutty,

Where do you choose the match from?

is it any game played anywhere in the world on a Saturday-Sunday-Monday from either of the following sites?

https://www.bet365.com/#/HO/

https://www.williamhill.com

Can you focus on favourite Leagues or teams that you know well?  Can you you develop a favourite system and study form?

Can you just choose a team you fancy will win and post that on the new thread every week? 

Is it really as simple as that?

And any winnings all go to a great charity?

That's all spot on except we choose the match from Bet 365 now.

Every penny that is won or pledged goes to the charity. It's just that tenner at the beginning of the season that funds the bets.

So you can donate a tenner at the start of the season - if you can - then just join in every week and make a pick on the thread?

Then one picker chooses the 6 accumulator bet from each week’s selections from everybody  that can win money from the bookies and be given to the mixed Norwich City Downs Syndrome Football Team? 

That’s a pretty nice Robin Hood style move buddy…🤗🤗✨✨👌🦮💛💚

Oh..and you make a League tables of who has the best win rate and who makes the most money from their own bets each season?

Moral victory and competitive juices style?…😹💛💚

…and in the end any wins from the bookies, pledges, side bets, argument-settlers and kind donations go into a big pot and 100% gets presented to the pan-disability teams at Norwich City?

..all by just any poster making a single post on the Rays Funds thread that appears each Wednesday to Friday?

I never look at the league table as for me it is the taking part that counts.

You can also see if you can beat my record of having your selection down the drain on a 1/10 banker failing by 13.30 on Saturday afternoon. 🤦‍♂️🤣

I see that the PUPS  thread in aid of the CSF 

https://www.communitysportsfoundation.org.uk

is up on a Wednesday regular as clockwork…🤗✨💛💚

Great time to post a guess at a score from a match anywhere in the world that you think will win 🏆 

Use https://www.bet365.com/#/AS/B1/ to help you choose…🙏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
 

…or you could just post a donation or side bet on there…🤗🙏🏽

So anyone and everyone picks a match they think will will from www.Bet365.com between Wednesday and Friday each week, then a single picker gets to make a 6 match accumulator that hopefully wins for the CSF?…

…then the matches are played out over Sat-Sun-Mon, then there’s a table put up of winning bets and most profitable bets for each individual too?

Sounds like fun…🤗👍🏽🦮😻

…and the Norwich Downs Syndrome boys and girls have directly gained about £25k from this over the years…?

It’s free..?…or you donate £10 per year if you can…?…or you pledge, side bet, donate when or if you fancy along the way?

Why wouldn’t you join and have fun..?…🤗🙏🏽….brilliant idea @nutty nigel 👍🏽👍🏽🤗✨✨🙏🏽👏🏽
