Optimist Club 2015-16, week of December 28, 2015

Greetings Optimists,
Sing with me… Well, the weather outside is frightful but the fire is so delightful….
Jan O, Connie M, and I have received an email about another raffle program from the same company that does the Football Crazr raffle for the NFL games.
Here is part of the email we received:
“This is how it would work.  A ticket would have four (4) teams covered over with a scratch off film.  If your ticket has a team or teams that do not qualify for the tournament, your ticket would be given the next highest seed to replace them, which can be found on the www.fundcrazr.com website. Those four teams would then be your teams for the entire weeks of madness.  If a team loses, you get to keep the score from that team, and you would continue on with the remaining teams on your ticket.  We would add up the final score for each ticket at the end of the final four week, and that would then determine the winners.
The ticket would have a crazrsaver discount code like the football tickets and the cost is the same at $20.00 per ticket. The prize money would be broken down as such: 
Highest Score:    $600.00     Second Highest:   $400.00   Third Highest:   $300.00
Fourth Highest:   $200.00     Fifth Highest:        $175.00    Sixth Highest:   $150.00
Lowest Score:     $100.00    Second Lowest:     $75.00
In case of a tie, the prizes are combined and split.  All results are final.”
So, Fred Dorn is asking each club in the SWIS District if they would be willing to participate, like we do for the football raffle. Would one of you be willing to serve as the contact for our club, like Connie M has done for the football raffle? Please let me know by January 10 if you would be willing to coordinate this fund raiser
A reminder again that the annual club dues notification was sent out to our membership list (which is not the exact same as this email list). Hopefully active members can submit dues soon so Ken, Kate and I can update the club roster at the OI web site.
Finally, Happy New Year’s to all of you!
