As you know when you join the club you pay a joining fee of £20. At each club night i always hope people will pay £2 for that nights raffle (THERE GOOD TOO !!) What this does, is pay for all the prizes per month for best coin, best artefact on the thames and in the field sections !!!! There is always a massive selection of raffle prizes to take away on that night !!! For winning a section that night you win a prize, and are also allocated a raffle tickets which go towards the massive christmas raffle (THE BIG ONE !!) All raffle tickets either bought or won can win that nights monthly raffle, but these too get put into the BIG christmas raffle and buffet night at the end of the year !!! WITH £500 PLUS WORTH OF PRIZES !!! (BIG MONEY !!!)
The money from the raffle funds the rent of the hall, the talker for the night, and all the tea, cofee and biscuits for that night. (Plus all the printing and the paper work etc.)
The main joining fee you pay is used for prizes, trips, rally's, field fee's and weekends away.
As long as people always buy there raffle tickets, the clubs funds will always be rosey and we dont have to think about can we can do, or not do !!!.
Also the club treasurer canadian peter is a right tight arse, so our money is always well spent!!!
TRYING TO GET THE £2 RAFFLE MONEY OUT OF THE MEMBERS WAS GETTING HARD??? SO AFTER TIGHT WAD AND I DUG UP THAT MEDIEVAL TORTURE RACK.........THINGS GOT A LOT EASIER !!!!!!
(THE NIPPLE CLAMP'S HELPED TOO !!!)
P.S PAT GATE'S PLEASE CAN YOU BRING THE CLAMP'S BACK, AS I KNOW YOU PINCHED THEM AT LAST MONTH'S MEETING AS WE COULD SEE THEM THROUGH YOUR T-SHIRT !!! LITTLE PERV.............
"OK, OK....I'LL PAY MY DAD'S £2......JUST DONT DROWN HIM" !!!
