Sunday, Sept 5th, 2021, Club #1
Due to the overwhelming success we had last year with our $100,000 50/50 lottery and the urging of a lot of our members we are again going to run this function again this year for the 21-22 snowmobile season. We have a partial committee in place to get the lottery up and running and giving the experience we had with last year’s lottery, this will be a lot easier to do. We have already applied for the lottery licence.
We will be also having our usual fund raisers that we had in previous years such as our Wednesday night suppers. We are planning again on selling 1000 tickets at $100 per ticket and we feel that with over 1400 members this would not be a hard sell plus the fact that we will be selling to the local public as we have a very loyal base here in the vicinity of Bathurst. The prize structure will be on a 50 – 50 draw with the winning tickets getting the full 50% in cash only and the second 50% to the club which will include all expenses such as ticket printing plus advertising. We decided that again there will be only cash prizes. We are asking that all members who use the trail system to support this fund raiser but particularly those who use the system substantially through the season. This will ensure we can continue to provide a first class trail system for everyone in 2022.
The draw will be prorated in case we don’t get to sell the 1000 tickets and if we sell them all before the closing date of February 20 on which date we will be making the draw at Bathurst City Hall. Judging by the response from members we should have no trouble selling these tickets plus I might add that there was a mad scramble for tickets during the last week of last year’s draw, so don’t delay in getting yours. The tickets will be available on line through our web site and also in person by designated business’s and persons by November 1st
Prize structure: First Place $25000, Second Place $10,000, Third Place $5,000, Fourth to Sixth place $1000, Seventh to Twelfth Place $500, Thirteenth to Twentieth $300, Twenty first to Thirty Sixth $100.
