The club would like to thank everyone for the huge response to the newsletter and distribution of lotto envelops. The plan has been a huge success. A special word of thanks to all those who have bought lotto envelops and yearly tickets. We would like to thank all those involved in compiling and distributing the newsletter and envelops.
