At the Tournament Ball in November 2016 we launched the Friends of Tournament Group whose aim was to support fund raising to assist our elite skiers to attend European and World Championships as well as promoting initiatives to help the continued development of Tournament Waterskiing.
The first initiative was to launch a 200 Club Lottery that started in January 2017 with 35 ticket holders. We have seen steady growth in participation and in the December 2018 draw there were 107 tickets.
The monthly Lottery Ticket price is £25 of which 32.5% goes towards prizes and the rest is building our fund. There are three prizes every month with a prize double up month in November (October in 2018 at Tournament Ball) each year. So for last years Double Up Draw the prizes were, £787.50, £525, and £262.50.
The odds on getting a win are really good and the 84 prizes drawn till April 2019 have gone to 49 different winners with five lucky ticket holders winning four times, five three times, ten two times and twenty nine winning once.
In 2017 the 200 Club and a couple of other small fund raising initiatives raised a total of £13,729 of which £5,550 was paid out to 22 skiers towards Team Travel. As a result £8,180 was carried forward into 2018. Based on the current 108 ticket holders we will raise a further £20,160 in 2018.
In 2018 we paid out £8,700 towards Team Travel and a further £5,760 to support seven development days and two days of Squad training that took place in August at South Lake with Damien Ackerer. The Development Days have been completed at six different sites and with funding from BWSW and Friends of Tournament these were attended by 36 young skiers who received coaching from Mick Hazelwood, Rob Hazelwood, Ben Turp, Nick McGarry and others. The participants were given a free Tournament Licence and be encouraged to give competitions a try. We also gave out 45 Coaching Certificates to our Handicap League winners. Five Development Days, two Squad Training Days and Two Training Camps are planned for 2019.
With the loss of funding from UK Sport and the ongoing reduction of funding from Sport England this fund raising is of vital importance to encourage new skiers into competitive Tournament skiing and to ensure we are able to send our very best teams to represent us in Europe and the World. So please join us as a Friend of Tournament and a 200 Club Lottery ticket holder.
Sign up forms can be found in the resources section of this website or through the 200 Club news item on the BWSW website.
