the September Seminar is off to a great start! The week began with the
Members arriving at Rafferty's Resort at about 10am for a meet and greet
with Garry and Prue. Below is a picture of the group, starting
from left, Mario, Ron, Edwin, John, Garry, Howard, Stan (centre left)
and Ian (centre right).
Here is a brief
rundown of what each day of the Seminar has consisted of so far:
The Seminar starts
out with Garry giving a brief overview of what the attendees can look
forward to over the rest of the week. Garry then moves on to his first
topic of the Seminar, which is Form Analysis. In this section of the
Seminar, Garry explains how to construct the Winform Ratings by hand
through reading a good Form Guide.
The picture below shows Garry showing full work-outs for the Form Analysis exercise
on the whiteboard.
The attendees are
then given a copy of the form for a race and get the chance to have
a go at constructing the Winform Ratings for that race themselves. This
then gives them the opportunity to ask any questions and ensure that
they are understanding how to do everything as they go. Garry always
ensures that there is plenty of time throughout the day for everyone
to ask questions.
The picture below shows three members hard at work constructing the Ratings with
the form they were given.
When the Seminar is
finished for the day, everyone heads to the bar for welcolme drinks
Tuesday begins with
Garry continuing the Form Analysis Exercise from yesterday.

move on to Applying the Form and go through more examples of reading
the Form and constructing the Ratings.
After afternoon tea,
we discuss software applications. In this section of the Seminar, Garry
shows the attendees the GTX software (produced by TRB) and all of its
functions. Garry also shows the attendees the System Developer and the
attendees get a chance to put their ideas together and build a system.
This is usually a very productive time as the attendees sometimes come
up with profitable systems that consistently make profits over extended
periods of time.
of the Winform Software Packages and their uses. During this session
of the Seminar, Garry shows the attendees the $100 Per Day Plan, Winform

of how each package works, including how to setup accounts, how to enter
data and also the Report section of the software.
After lunch, Garry
then takes the time to go into detail of the Powerbet and Money Factory

each of the pieces of software and also goes into detail of how the
software works to calculste your bets.
At about 2:30pm everyone
departed Rafferty's Resort to attend the Cameron Handicap at the Newcastle
Races. This gave the attendees the opportunity to put the knowledge
that they have gained so far at the Seminar into action.
On Thursday morning, the
Seminar started out with Garry explaining systems and staking plans. In
this section, Garry discusses the different selection services that Winform
has to offer and how he came up with the rules of the systems. Garry then
goes into detail explaining the different Staking plans available to punters
and what systems each plan are most suited to.
After lunch, Matt
Elliot from Elk Publications started his presentation. During this
presentation, Matt discussed in detail the Renegade approach, as outlined
in Winning Without Form (written by Matt Elliott).
Attendees of the
Seminar learnt the specifics of using the Renegade approach and were
given a demo of the Renegade Program.
Garry, I would just like to thank you again for a well planned night.
I had a great night and was well worth the trip up. Again thank you
and I look forward to meeting you again one day.
Garry then gave a detailed
explanation of Brenton Burford's recently completed research (as discussed
in the August Newsletter for Members). Garry ran Plan A and B through the
Money Factory Software to show the attendees how successful this plan is.
The plans have a strike rate of about 46% and an avergae dividend of about
The afternoon was then
filled with more discussions on building systems in the GTX software using
the System Developer. During this session, Garry ran through most of his
strategies from 2002 to 2005 and analysed the data over 3 month intervals,
all attendees received a copy of the data produced.
On Thursday evening,
the Seminar was turned over to Matt Elliott again. During this session,
we had another 9 attendees to hear Matt's knowledge on the Renegade
approach, sports betting and using Betting Exchanges.
During this session,
Matt discusses in detail the benefits of using Betting Exchanges,
the change in trends with Sports Betting, finding an edge and sticking
to it and Staking Plans. Matt then has an indepth question and answer
time, where attendees are able to ask Matt specific questions on Sports
Betting and the Renegade Approach.
