Delayed 500 Club Draw for February 2020

500 Club Latest ….

After a long Covid-19 induced break, WRFC 500 Club Draws are back using Random.org to generate single random numbers within a specific range – just as the ‘traditional’ balls-from-a-bag method would. Any numbers generated which need to be rejected (e.g. number not allocated) are dealt with exactly as before and re-drawn/generated.

The winners for the delayed February 2020 draw are posted below, but firstly a few notes …..

  • A belated welcome to our latest 500 Clubbers, Ken Hales and Christina, welcome and thank you!
  • To all our established contributors – I’m pleased to say that the vast majority have stayed on board during these trying times. The club needs us more than ever now to help carry us through to the full restart of rugby and beyond.
  • Three new sets of posts have been purchased (two from 500 Club funding & one other by an individual member’s donation), so we should be fully to standard when these are installed.
  • A big ‘Thank You’ to all the volunteer effort which is putting the new posts in, as well as all the other greatly needed maintenance and clearance work which is being carried out.
  • A plea for more membership involvement in the 500 Club – it makes a great difference for us all, and just imagine how much more that difference could be if inclusion in the 500 Club could be increased from the present 84 only – which includes past players and ex-members who continue to support. What could we achieve if all the current membership (over 500?) also signed up…….?
  • As I’m now driving the draw ‘solo’, I have withdrawn my own numbers permanently to avoid the possible embarrassment of appearing to make myself a winner…. 🙂 !

This week I just made it under the wire, having set out my schedule to catch up on the draw backlog – next week (March Draw) I hope to do better!

Cheques will be in the post within ten days – please be reminded that if you have changed your address recently advise directly asap (ballenma@hotmail.com) to avoid despatch to the wrong address.

And the February 2020 Winners are …..

  • £180       :       #075 –  Chris Lawton
  • £80       :         #046 –  Elaine Phillips
  • £40         :       #092 –  John Cooper
