Tuesday is Melbourne Cup day here in Australia. The Melbourne Cup is a horse race, generally regarded as the most prestigious "two-mile" handicap in the world.

In honour of Melbourne Cup day and the tradition of "sweeps" that occur in most workplaces / social groups I thoujgt I'd start a ToyVoyager  'Melbourne Cup sweep'. The prize being 5 Aussie souveniers - a postcard, pin, pen, bandana & small toy (already registered as a ToyVoyager)

It's simple to enter.
Simply choose a number between 1 and 24.
Only one player per number.
If the number you choose matches the horse that wins the race, you'll win the prize.
In the case that the winning horse's number has not been selected by someone playing the game, the prize will go to the player whose number is the closest to the winner.

I will be closing the competition Tuesday morning - 7:00 Sydney time. (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time) and will post on this thread that it is closed at this time.

You will get us all to start gambling. :) Seriously, it wasn't popular in Germany until the past few years but now everybody is watching and playing online poker and betting on soccer games etc.
To join the fun I'll go with number 9.
Thanks a lot!

This tends to be the one time of the year when nearly everyone in Australia has a bet on! I usually only do the work sweep.
