Professional Entrants?
Is that referring to anyone who enters contests regularly?

I would think you're not a professional unless someone pays you to do it. That's how it works with race car drivers, horse trainers, and one more example I can think of but probably am not allowed to say on here.

You must mean athletes

Then that would make anyone who buys lottery tickets weekly or daily a professional gambler!! I think not!

Time to win, win, win!!

I'm only speculating here, but I think the term "professional entrant" would mean that you can support yourself solely on your wins. As a professional athlete or professional gambler would.

I am just curious if you saw "Professional Entrants" in some rules somewhere?

Thanks everyone, your replies make perfect sense I thought it was probably something like that, but wasn't sure. Now off to figure out what "icky-boo-boos" are LOL.

It was a "NOTE" on a blog along with "icky-boo-boos".

I'd say anyone that also rights a book on it too (cus only a professional should be writing or giving advice eh? LOL)

but there ARE some people on here who admittedly say they spend more hrs online entering then you would at a reg job (they do this 10 hrs a day and a full time job is only 8hrs/40hrs a week)

"Professional" could mean different things to different people and depending on the circumstances. I believe most would consider a professional as someone who makes a living doing something.

I have gotten money for placing high at running races. Probably something like $1,500 to $2,000 over ten years (much more than that in free gear, gift certs, and entries). I don't think I am a professional but the NCAA would if I had eligibility left.
