St Andrew's Day was our "Super Saturday"!
The Executive would like to thank everyone who contributed to last Saturday’s success.
100 Club Draw
The fourth quarterly and first annual bonus draws were held at the Sportsman's Dinner.
Mark Smith won £800 in the annual bonus draw and Ian Ballantyne claimed the main quarterly draw price of £500.
Push for 100 by February
As the 100 Club enters into its second year, membership stands at 91. Just 9 more members needed by February next year and the annual bonus prize will go up to £1,000, with each quarter the prizes rising to a main prize of £500 and two additional prizes of £250.
If you're not in the draw then join in, if you are already in the draw then persuade a friend to join - it's all in a good cause!
But, Where Have all the Pigs Gone?
We were having a Piggy Round-Up last weekend but, in the excitement, this seems to have slipped under the radar. Only 14 pigs were returned. We know from our August Round-Up there are over one hundred pigs out there. Just bring them along to the Club between now and Christmas and leave them for Anne or Gavin to collect.
Don’t forget to pick up your empty pig to begin filling after Christmas in time for the next Round-Up.
Let's set some records this year and sell even more prediction cards than usual in our big fundraising year
