The Christmas Draw tickets have now been printed and the club are endeavouring to deliver them to everyone ASAP. We have listened to some of the issues (dual players and families getting multiple sets of tickets) so we are aiming to delivery one envelope of ten tickets to each household. While it takes pressure of the mentors to get the tickets it is leaving us a bit stretched, so tickets can be collecting in the bar. We are asking all households to sell one book (10 tickets) for this to be a HUGE success. It is a vital fundraiser for the club to ensure we can keep supporting our 145 teams’ activities. We do ask Mentors to remind parents and members, players and supporters to return tickets ASAP. All details are in cover letter with tickets. Support your Club so it can support YOU.
