  9. The weekly draw is held on Sunday afternoons between 16:30 and 17:30.

  10. The club will use their random number generator to choose the member who will get the chance to pick a key, all numbers sold that week will be entered into the generator.

  11. The member chosen at random on Sundays will automatically win £10.

  12. The member chosen at random MUST be in attendance when the draw is held to be able to pick a key, if they are not in attendance when their number is called, they lose the chance to pick, but they do win the £10.

  13. If the first number generated belongs to a member who is not in attendance, a second number will be generated, that member will also win £10 and if they are in attendance, they will get the chance to pick a key.

  17. If the box is not successfully opened on a draw day, the jackpot will roll over to the following week’s draw.

  18. Each draw week is part of the same competition until the jackpot is won, this effectively ends that competition.

  19. If a key that is picked by a member in a weekly draw does not open the box, it will not be placed back into the key bag the following week, therefore reducing the number of keys available for a member to pick from (subject to rule 20).
