Every now and then a member of the SCT Community steps up with an act of generosity that simply amazes me.
Today it was Catta.
Rather than take you through it, I’ll let the email I received from him this morning tell the story:
Hope all is well young fella?
Been thinking over the last few weeks of how I can contribute to the SCT site more, although with my work schedules & insipid hours it cannot be much on the brains trust side of adding a blurb or weekly post!
So I’ve come up with this…
$500 to the overall winner of the SuperCoachTalk Group competition, on a couple of conditions:
1) the winner must have the letters @SCT at the end of their team name. If the winner doesn’t, the $500 will simply go to the highest placed SCT coach in the group competition having the letters @SCT attached to their team name.
2) the person must be in the SuperCoachTalk Group with the “@SCT” suffix by the end of Round 4.
I love the site & it amazes me just how much effort, time, knowledge & respect is shown on the best SC site in the world. The efforts of yourself, Thommo, Schwarzy, MJ, Chonks, Father D & ALL the SCT community I feel I’d like to contribute in this small way if you’d approve Motts!
He doesn’t want any promotion out of it. He just wants to give something back. The $500 is not coming from his company. Its coming out of his pocket.
What an incredible gesture.
If you’re not already in the Group no doubt you’re scrambling right now to find out how to enter it. I’m actually not too keen on too many more people joining it because I’m currently leading it! 😉
Here’s the link you need. If that link didn’t work, the Group Code is 233595. We’ll be screenshotting the entire Group at the end of Round 4.
Now here’s what caused the minor glitch: you can’t change your team name through SuperCoach anymore. That’s ok – I’ve straightened it out. I’m going to email the very friendly and helpful folk at VirtualSports, the company that made the SC software, and they’re going to do it for me. So if you don’t already have the “@SCT” suffix in your team name and you want a chance to win a monkey (half a gorilla – geddit?), cut and paste the following into the Comments area of this post and fill it out:
Current Team Name:
Current SCT Group Ranking:
Coach: [just first name]
New Team Name: [must be 18 characters or less. If its more than 18 characters, we’ll just add “@SCT” on the end and truncate whatever you’ve got at the beginning.]
You need to do this by 5pm AEST, Friday, April 8. After that time, I’m not guaranteeing I’ll be able to get it done. I’ll then put everyone who needs a name change into a spreadsheet and send it over to the fantastic team at VirtualSports who have been nothing but allstars this preseason whenever we’ve asked for their help.
On behalf of the entire SCT Community, Catta, thank you mate. You are a true legend and will be going straight into the Hall of Fame (again) for this unbelievable contribution.
***APRIL 6 UPDATE***
Ratticus, the benevolent giant that he is, has just put up a $100 prize for second in the Group. His words to me were: “I wouldn’t have won my local comp and pocketed a grand last year without SCT and what’s 1 less coffee a week for a bit of extra excitement?”
Same conditions apply as above. Join the Group and/or request a team name change today!
