While there’s no denying Daniel’s excitement about his beloved Geelong Cats taking the ultimate prize, even more of a highlight was the fact that Daniel won the Barry Plant Group’s annual footy tipping competition. With an outstanding score of 149 points, Daniel credits his gut instinct for his tipping success, having predicted the most match outcomes and winning margins of all participants.
Now in its second year, the Barry Plant Group’s footy tipping competition is open to all employees, clients and customers of the 83 office network, and acts as a great platform to create friendly rivalry amongst participants.
This year the prize everyone was hoping to take home was a two thousand dollar voucher from Red Balloon – Australia and New Zealand’s leading experience gift retailer. To mark the momentous occasion, the Barry Plant Group had a giant cheque made up to the value of the voucher and the Director of the Barry Plant Rowville, Brenton Wilson presented it to the worthy winner.
When asked how he was going to use the voucher, Mr Rigg said,
“There is much debate taking place in our household regarding which activity to do. My wife and I are yet to decide whether we’ll go for longevity and partake in many activities, or splash out on one really decadent experience.”
Director, Brenton Wilson said he was thrilled that the overall winner had been a client of his office.
“We are a very community orientated organisation, so having the opportunity to invite our local community to be involved in this type of competition is always a lot of fun.”
“The competition was really tight towards the end. The entire team at Rowville was cheering Daniel on and hoping he’d cross the finish line in first position.”
“Daniel has been a loyal client of ours for some time so this was a very popular win.”
Similar to Geelong, individuals are now speculating whether Daniel has the skill to go back to back and take out next year’s competition. But like the football season, tipping is often just as unpredictable so only time will tell.
