A Grand Christmas draw of 10% of the years income.

A monthly draw of 3 prizes – 20%,15% and 5% of the months income unless membership is less than 500 in which case there will be one prize each month of 40% of the months income.

The monthly draws will take place during the half-time interval at the last home match each month during the season.

During the close season, the monthly draws will be deferred until the first month of the next season.

The monthly prize will be posted to the winner within three days of the draw.

The Grand Christmas Draw will be made at half time during a match over the Christmas period.

If the member is not at the match the cheque will be posted to the member within three days.

Members are only eligible to participate in the draw if payment of their subscription is up to date. Any member whose subscription is in arrears will not qualify for inclusion in the draw.

Only those members who join before 1 September are eligible to participate in the Grand Christmas Draw for that year.

The names of prize winners will be published online on the President’s 1883 Club website.

Each prize may be paid only to the owner of the winning number.

It is the responsibility of each member to ensure that the President’s 1883 Club has up to date contact details to ensure that winners can be paid quickly.
