Our 3nd annual winter raffle is under way! Each athlete is responsible to sell 2 books of 20 tickets ($5 a ticket, $100 a book), as voted in the last parent meeting. Books are to be paid for up front with a cheque payable to Telemark Nordic Club. If this is a problem for any family please come see me (Deepa); some exceptions apply. ALL tickets MUST be returned for the draw (i.e., put your name on unsold tickets and enter the draw). Families and athletes who have not fulfilled their required $250 of fund-raising effort, take this opportunity to sell MORE books!!
Raffle ticket sales can provide great teaching moments and life learning opportunities for young athletes. I encourage athletes to get involved in ticket sales to help support their race team. Write a script of your sales pitch; practice what you will say; start with relatives and work your way up. Print off the poster below and use it to promote sales. Come out to a team supported ticket sale opportunity (e.g., at races and demo days). Skills learned may one day help when you are asking for something bigger, like a job, or someone’s hand in marriage ; )
This year’s draw date is February 22, 2015 at the BC Championships race at Telemark Nordic Club. See the raffle poster for more details. raffleposter2015
