harps is leaving the building

After 23 years at
Frankston Library,
it is time for me to leave.

It has been an honour
and a privilege to serve
the Frankston City community,
but the time has come for me to seek
fresh opportunities
and challenges
After 8 years of blogaloguing, tweeting,
posting to Facebook, online footy tipping
this is my last post. 
Thankyou for your support.
I love youse all.
Goodbye and all the best,

Footy tipping update

Equilibrium from chaos

As North and Port beat history and made their way into the Preliminary Finals from outside the top 4, our tipsters hit new lows. 56 Blogalogue tipsters picked no winners, 16 got it half right and just 7 scraped through with a perfect score of 2.

Despite, or perhaps because of, this poor showing, the top of the ladder remained fairly static; although, Can'thelpbelieving's logic at picking the upsets boosted them from 6th place to 3rd. A brave and decisive move, indeed!

The big question remains: can long-term ladder topper handbag queen defend her 1 game lead with just 3 more games to go?

Watch this space.

Round 23 update

The minor premiership goes to
handbag queen, who's hung on grimly to her lead of the Blogalogue's AFL tipping competition for about half the season. With just the finals to go, the pochette royal has a 1 game lead on the competition. Hang-in there!

Despite the draw that everyone won, this weekend no one picked all the wins. Thanks GWS.

ll that's left is the nail-biting trip to the Grand Final, so keep tipping!
