Minneapolis Billiard Club Member Lotto
This is a working draft of the plan. Once approved, it will be formally announced and locked in. ~MF
I propose a “Membership Drive” with benefits. Beginning January 2013, each member upon timely payment of dues each month receives one Raffle Entry. Mid month a random drawing will be done to award one lucky member the prize for the month.
Sponsors for raffle items will be solicited over the next several weeks. Many smaller items have already been pledged and hopeful donations have been placed in the prize matrix as examples.
Samsara Cues and Billiard Coach have donated the grand prize, a brand new limited edition Samsara Cue valued at $1,100. This item will be the December 2013 prize.
The fine print
In order to win the monthly prize, members must be in good standing(currently a member and paid up to date) to be eligible for the monthly prize. To be eligible for the large Grand Prize in December, a player must be current and have paid at least 6 months of membership dues to the club during 2013.
Example: A player pays January through March and leaves the club or does not pay for April. That player may win the small monthly prize for the first three months but any raffle entries the player has will not be in action for April.
