Guildford Hockey Club - 100 Club Rules
The 100 Club is a great way for any member to support GHC. As the name suggests…we are looking to get 100 Club members participating in this Club Lottery. The objective of the 100 Club is not to add directly to the operating income of GHC, but rather to be used on specific projects to improve and enhance the playing and social experience of GHC members around the clubrooms and pitches at Broadwater. If we can get membership up to our target of 100 we can raise around £3000 per year.
100 Club Rules
1) The name of the draw is the Guildford Hockey Club 100 Club, regardless of the number of members. Hereafter referred to as “The Lottery”.
2) The objective of the Lottery is to raise funds for the general purpose of Guildford Hockey Club. Hereafter called ‘The Club’. The Club is based at: Broadwater School, Summers Road, Godalming.
3) The Lottery will be administered by The 100 Club Competition Secretary appointed by the Board of The Club.
4) The Lottery will be open to anybody aged 18 or over. Shares will be sequentially numbered from 1 onwards. Participants are entitled to hold any number of shares. A purchaser of a share becomes a participant in the Lottery. Once a numbered share has been allocated it cannot be changed or transferred within the competition.
5) The Lottery will be run monthly from September to August, providing a minimum of 21 shares have been allocated and fully paid up by the date of the draw in each given month. If fewer than 21 shares have been allocated and paid up, the competition will not be run that month. If the Lottery does not run then any amounts received in respect of that month’s Lottery will be refunded.
The first draw will be on the last Friday in September and monthly thereafter on the last Friday of the month. The draw will be made using an automatic random number generator or other such means as The Competition Secretary deems appropriate. All participants are entitled to attend the draws, which must be held in the presence of at least 2 members of The Club committee. In the event of multiple draws taking place at one time, numbers will be drawn for the monthly competition first, followed by the Bonus Draw in that order.
6) The number of shares in the Lottery shall in the first instance be limited to 100 and each share shall be allocated a unique number. The Competition Secretary will confirm the number of each participant’s allocated share(s) by e-mail, upon receipt of first monthly payment in GHC’s bank accounts.
