Well believe it or not the Ace went tonight!! We began the evening with technical trouble and were unable to broadcast live. We did video the draw, and it will be posted on Facebook as soon as its working. So ticket sales for the week were $418.00 . That brought the jackpot up to $737.50. The ticket drawn for the evening belonged to June Stoyles. June was not in attendance this evening so the ticket master drew the card for her. The ticket drawn was the Ace of Clubs the big jackpot winner. So June Stoyles takes home a cheque for $821.20 which is the jackpot and the weekly 20%. But wait, the story doesn’t end there. The 50/50 sales for the week were $110.00 so that means the winner takes home $55. Guess who the winner was ? June Stoyles. Well Bryron, get ready for some teasing.
So despite this early result, we will have another application in the lottery department this week. We will let you know when we are up and running again. Hopefully very soon. Big thank you to all those who purchase tickets, to our retail partners. We will continue with the same charity partners on our next round.
Ticket sales and draws will be held each Monday at the Petitcodiac Valley Golf and Country Club at above noted address. Tickets will be sold during opening hours of the Clubhouse (varies throughout the summer due to weather). In addition tickets will be sold offsite at Petitcodiac SuperVariety in Petitcodiac as well as Mctavy’s General Store in Salisbury during their business hours (letter attached from owners stating same and stating 0% commission). On Monday (draw day), tickets will be picked up from Petitcodiac SuperVariety and Mctavy’s General store at 4 pm; tickets will continue to be sold at the Clubhouse until 6 pm. Draw to be held at 6:15.
Term of PVGCC Chase the Ace shall be from May 6 (first draw) until October 28 (last night)
Two part tickets will be sold at a cost of $2 each; 3 for $5; 10 for $10. Ticket sales are restricted to those 19 years of age or older.
Weekly ticket sales shall be allocated in the following manner:
20% to winning ticket holder
25% to the accumulated Prize Pot
55% to Petitcodiac Valley Golf and Country Club. PVGCC shall contribute 20% of said sales to our charity partners: Salisbury Fire and Rescue and Petitcodiac Fire and Rescue. This amount will be split equally between the two groups in October (they will continue to be our charity partners for the entire summer regardless if we have to start another draw). Letters are attached from each Fire and Rescue for this event.
Each Monday, one winning ticket will be drawn from that week’s ticket sales. The holder of the winning ticket will win 20% of the total week’s sales plus a chance to draw for the Ace of Clubs accumulated pot. If the ticket holder is not in attendance, the ticketmaster for the evening (established at 6 pm) will draw for the absentee ticket holder.
A standard deck of 52 cards will be used with the Ace of Clubs being revealed before each draw. Once an individual ticket has been drawn, the deck will be shuffled, the cards placed face down (fanned out) on the table and the ticket holder has the opportunity to draw for the Ace of Clubs. If the Ace of Clubs is not drawn, that card is torn in half and the ticket holder is awarded the 20% of weekly sales. The deck will be secured and locked onsite at the Petitcodiac Valley Golf and Country Club. This will continue until the Ace of Clubs is drawn.
Since our time noted for the Chase the Ace is only for 26 weeks, in the event that the Ace of Clubs has not be drawn on or before October 28, then there shall be a draw on October 28 until the Ace is drawn. All ticket holders who do not draw the Ace will share equally in the 20% normally allocated to the winning ticker holder while the ticket holder who does draw the Ace of Clubs will receive the accumulated prize pot plus the 25% normally credited to the prize pot.
The winning ticket holder does not have to be in attendance to claim the prize. If the ticker holder is not available, the designated Ticketmaster of the evening (designated at 6 pm) shall draw for the absentee. A live PVGCC Facebook feed may be conducted if the ticket holder is not available for the draw. The winner must claim their prize before the next draw or that money shall be deposited into the accumulated pot.
Petitcodiac Valley Golf and Country Club staff plus individuals conducting the draw are not eligible to purchase tickets.

The winner who is paid a prize also gives the PVGCC the right to publish any additional information they voluntarily provide.

June 26/27 saw 34 ladies compete in the only 36-hole ladies event in the province. Margo McLeod of Woodstock emerged as the low gross winner while Marilyn Pollock, of the host club, took home the low net of the field. Mike McCully, Iona’s husband, presented both trophies while Randy Howatt, the sponsor of the tournament, did all other presentations. A great weekend for lady golfers.
