This season’s 100 Club has just been completed, with the final draw this month, (Aug 2021), and many congratulations go to all the winners, especially Bob and Carol. Their luck was certainly in, as their numbers came out on many an occasions over the year, so much so, that it adds a new meaning to the phrase, “Blood Money”, but at least their new four legged friend, is now the best fed canine in Kent! Huge thanks go to Glynis Whatman and helpers, for sorting out all the paperwork and admin for this, whilst we were in lockdown and even more thanks are due to Mick and Gloria Smith, who run the draw each month, ensuring that all is fair and above board. Believe me, they cannot be bribed and I have even tried breaking the machine and this has not worked!
This season we had just under 100 entries. What would be nice for next season, would be if we could at least try and double that number, (and possibly more), to over the 200 entries mark. That way, there would be more money in the prize pot / extra prize places and more importantly, more money going into the Club coffers. And it is such a simple way for the Club to raise much needed funds. You pay your one off entry and that is it, done, dusted and entered for the year and then you sit back and hope luck is on your side. At the moment, we have approx. 300 members, so even if half that number have a go, that would be a start and up on this season’s entries.
Applications forms for next season’s 100 Club draws, starting in Nov 2021, will be available from 1st October 2021, so please support this scheme, be pro – active, ask at the main desk for a form and have a go. That way, it saves me from being an even bigger pain in the behind to you all, by having to come round to you all, with the PARIBC begging bowl, asking you to please enter. And after all, you have got to be in it, to win it! Thank you for your support.
