Melbourne Cup fun at work a safe bet
PUT down your $2 and get set to see what you've drawn in the office sweep ... it's all part of the Melbourne Cup fun.
It's Melbourne Cup time and it appears the race that stops a nation is living up to its title, as interest in our premier racing event builds to its traditional crescendo.
But spare a thought for the sweep makers, who have the task of sending out the emails, collecting the money, conducting the draw then taking the complaints over scratchings.
To make things easier for those getting a sweep together, we have a Cup Sweep form you can download and put up on the office or factory wall. It's all there ... horses, colours, jockeys, trainers ... and a spot to put names, right alongside.
Good luck in the draw ... and don't forget to shout the organiser a beer if you win.
