On our Facebook page, all points opportunities will include #2018Points in the post. This will help you easily identify and search for opportunities on the page. Please note that by participating in a points opportunity you are agreeing to do so within the parameters set out below. All points opportunities are open to all members of the club unless explicitly stated otherwise.

Current Opportunities:

Eurovision Treasure Hunt – We are sending you on a Eurovision treasure hunt. Please check here for all of the details. the Treasure Hunt will close at Noon CET on 27 September. There will be a maximum of 30 points available to each member that participates.

Upcoming Opportunities:

Sounds like Eurovision - A 25 second sound byte will be uploaded that combines 5 songs. All the 5 songs would be from the same year at Eurovision. You will have 24 hours to submit your guesses as to what the 5 songs are, and identify the year. You will get 1 point per song you correctly guess (if you get all correct over the ten days you will earn 50 points). In addition, each day all of the entries that successfully picked all 5 songs and identified the year will go into a draw. One of these entries will be randomly selected and will receive double points for that day. This points opportunity will run over 10 days in October 2017.

Closed Opportunities:

1 is not the loneliest number – 36 songs have gotten nil points over the years at Eurovision. We will ask 36 members to write a short piece (a paragraph) in defense of one of these songs, and why it should have gotten points. All members will then have a chance to review all 36 songs and we will vote for the club’s favorite ‘nil point’ song. The 36 members who complete the write up will receive 10 points each. There will be 2 points on offer for each member that votes. This points opportunity is now CLOSED.

Portugal at Eurovision – Portugal have entered 49 songs at Eurovision over the years. Over 2 weeks, we will be giving you a series of clues (for one song each day) and you will need to guess which of Portugal’s entries the clues point to. There will be 2 points available per correct answer, with a bonus 10 points for those that correctly guess all 14 songs. Due to the right/wrong nature of the questions Board members will not participate in this points opportunity. This points opportunity is now CLOSED.

The post contest reviews are where you will get a chance to comment on the actual performance given at Eurovision. These will commence on the Facebook page on 22 May and continue through 2 July. You will be able to earn 1 point for each song you comment on.

All 42 songs will include #Post2017 to make them easier to find in the group. If you do not have a Facebook account and would like to participate please email us and we will make alternate arrangements to capture your comments. This points opportunity is CLOSED.
