The Lucky Dip got as far as £400 before it was won.
Friday nights had brought a build up of excitement but also some speculation as to how far it should go. This was discussed at the June General Committee meeting and the decision was made that it should be capped at £500 which is a good sum of money to win. The draw will therefore continue each week until that £500 is won. However, the principle of a weekly contribution to the prize from the bar has to be maintained. Therefore, a second draw (in waiting) will receive the weekly bar contribution and when the £500 is won, the second draw will come into play at whatever figure it has then reached.
Good luck! and don't forget that you have to be in the Club on a Friday night at 9pm in order to have a chance to win.
