Club Lotto

26 September, 2017

The Club Lotto began approximately 12 years ago to help clear a bank loan and to raise funds for repairs to the club house and other necessary works. This loan is now paid.
At one stage there were 119 members in the syndicate. Now we only have 44 members.
The Lotto works as follows.
Each member of the syndicate pays €20 per month, preferably by standing order. Weekly standing orders are also possible.  Payments can also be made by paying the full amount (€240) in cash or by cheque.
€10 of the money is invested in the Euromillions Lotto Draw which takes place every Friday and the remaining €10 is invested in a fund for club development. In reality, you are donating €2.50 per week to the development of our club.  (Less than a half pint of beer per week!!!) All winnings are kept separate and will be distributed at the end of the year. The results are available on the website every Monday.
Meetings have taken place with the Sports Capital Programme, part of the department of sport and recreation with the purpose of getting a grant to help us with our development. We can secure a grant of up to €200,000 if we raise €30,000. Presently we have €6,000 raised, and that with only 44 members. The more members we have the quicker we will reach €30,000.
Initally, we want to erect proper flood lights thus enabling games to be played any night of the week. These lights will cost approx. €70,000. We are all aware of the need for more dressing rooms and showers. This will also happen with the balance of the grant.
Those who will get maximum benefit from this work are YOU, THE PLAYERS, BOTH ADULT AND JUVENILES.  I ask you to sign up immediately and get the work completed a.s.a.p.
It has been agreed by the executive committee that all money raised is exclusively for the development outlined above and cannot be used for any other purpose.
Attached to this note is a Standing Order form which I hope you will complete and return to me a.s.a.p. with all details required. I will then contact the relevant banks. Remember, the sooner you sign the sooner you are included in the weekly draw for at least €15,000,000
Kind regards,
