May (PS27S) [699] I had suggested it yesterday [...]
(PS27R) [700] And it will be eleven before the service is finished, so the earliest I think we should
May (PS27S) [701] [...] I think quarter to twelve.
(PS27R) [702] I thought half past eleven tee off.

Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [708] If somebody [...] if they turn up at the normal time, I assume when though there's you know [...] we could leave a not a not a notice and they could just go out.
May (PS27S) [709] Mhm.
(PS27R) [710] I mean, that means there's no draw I suppose that those of us who've been [...] could have a quick draw when we

(PS27R) [802] Well that's right, we don't actually need that.
[803] I remember sitting helping to write the cards the night before and we were writing them off a typewritten sheet.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [804] Is the any to compare the the entries we have this year with the entries we got last year.
[805] And see who's not coming this year that did last year.
[806] It just might be somebody we know, and jog them along and say
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
May (PS27S) [807] those lists you did, those typewritten lists from last year.
Edith (PS27T) [808] [...] probably destroyed but they should be on disk.
[809] They should still be [...] disk.
(PS27R) [810] It might be worth going through them and er anybody we think [...]
Edith (PS27T) [811] Aye cos I mean we we thought
May (PS27S) [812] We should do this for the mixed open as well, keep a a note of the entries from one year to the other and you can get in touch with people and say, Are you playing or not [...]
(PS27R) [813] We don't have all that many places left do we

May (PS27S) [815] Is the morning getting full.
(PS27R) [816] The morning's just about full
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
May (PS27S) [817] Well it might be worth looking through last year's list [...] in the day.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]

Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]

May (PS27S) [821] Who does the notices that go up?
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Jim (PS27U) [822] [...] we ask [...] to help [...] .
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [823] I d think we can leave that actually till just nearer
Jim (PS27U) [824] I was told that 's just verbally agreed rather than
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [825] Aha.
Jim (PS27U) [826] officially agreed.
(PS27R) [827] Yeah.
[828] But it is nice if they are asked, sometimes it's sometimes they are just expected to do and if they haven't been officially asked.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [829] It's nice no to be forgotten about as well.
[830] [laugh] That happens that's happened in the
May (PS27S) [831] Yeah I think
(PS27R) [832] past [...] .
May (PS27S) [833] Yes cos they've been starting
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [834] Oh that would be good cos I was going to say normally, [...] is er sort of up in that corner in charge of the tombola but er
Jim (PS27U) [835] Just don't [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [836] This is the some the th one of the things I was going to suggest about I was going to leave it till next meeting, is that we we try and organize ourselves so that we are not su Last year I found myself sitting there frantically writing names on raffle tickets, knowing I was going out to play in about ten minutes, but there was nobody there to take over.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
May (PS27S) [837] Well that's it.
[838] You know I should be back when there's somebody going away [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [839] Well we could maybe leave it till the next committee meeting to to organize ourselves to [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [840] So we know what sort of times we're expected to be sort of selling raffle tickets and
May (PS27S) [841] Another thing, it's quite easy to get mixed up.
[842] And it's better really if one person does it.
[843] I don't know if Anne wants to do it or not.
[844] Is putting the numbers on the tombola.
[845] On the prizes
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [846] Well I was going to say
May (PS27S) [847] That's quite a lot of work for

(PS27R) [907] As long as they can tear.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [908] They're very hard when you're in a hurry [...] .
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [909] What were you doing?
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [910] About a fiver or something [...]
Jim (PS27U) [911] So each of those big books with a thousand tickets [...] only cost me a pound.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
Jim (PS27U) [912] They're over two pounds if you buy them in John Menzies.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [913] Mhm.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [914] It's easy to take off the outside when when you come to take the inside ones it's quite difficult.
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [915] Sometimes the inside ones depend how carefully the the ones on top [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [916] That that's right.
[917] And it it's easy when you're not busy, but if you get a spell of being busy, [...] .
May (PS27S) [918] How much are the raffle tickets going to be?
[919] The usual fifty pence a strip?
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
May (PS27S) [920] Making it clear to them they get they get it's not
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
May (PS27S) [921] they're not going in in strips, they're g they're getting five chances for their fifty pence.

Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [924] I think it's better if you give them fi They'll buy more tickets if they're getting
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [925] [...] I think they'll just buy a strip anyway.
Jim (PS27U) [...]
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [926] That's right you don't want just to have four chances, you want to have twenty chances .
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [927] No I was saying if I was saying if I was going to spend that on raffle tickets, it wouldn't matter if I was getting
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [928] The other thing is we sometimes get children around and they come and they just want to buy.
[929] You know two tickets.
Jim (PS27U) [930] Well their mother'll have to give them
Unknown speaker (G59PSUNK) [...]
(PS27R) [931] I think we just we should stick to er giving them five chances for their.
