Fundraising

Registration fees do not cover our expenses, so fundraising is an absolute necessity.  In an effort to keep skating an affordable sport, we are asking every family to participate.  We also realize that times are difficult financially for our membership, however, you can recover the expense of the Promotional Tickets by selling the tickets.  
 
 
      1) BINGOS
 
Bingo revenue is by far our greatest source of income.  Without it, registration fees would rise significantly.  Our bingos continue this season at the Classic III bingo hall on Desro Rd (Manning Rd at the Expressway) in Tecumseh.   Dates are worked in blocks of 3 or 4 sessions each, either daytime at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm & 4:00 pm or evenings at 6:00 pm, 8:00 pm, 10:00 pm.
We have 3 dedicated members who attend every bingo. 
If you would like to help support the Bingos the dates for the remainder of 2014 are: 
Sunday, September 7th – daytime session, 
Saturday, November 1st, evening session,
Friday, December 5th – daytime session.  
Dates for 2015 will be posted on the Skating bulletin board as soon as we receive our schedule.
Our Bingo proceeds are pooled which means that the club receives their share based on the number of bingos they have during the month so if you enjoy playing please come the months that we have bingos.
 
 
2)   SKATERS PROMOTIONAL TICKETS
 
Again this year a $40.00 book of promotional tickets has been added to the cost of your registration (only one book per family).  These tickets cost $2.00 each and by selling the tickets you can recover this cost.  The club’s profit is $22.00 per book.
 
 
 
3)  DEVEAU/WINFIELD SYNCHRO INVITATIONAL COMPETITION
 
     Volunteers and food donations are needed see bulletin board for details.
 
4)  OTHER FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES
 
Will be announced or posted on the Bulletin Board. We have asked for your e-mail address and important information and newsletters will be sent to you this way as well.
