The 200 Club offers the chance to enter a monthly draw, with a guaranteed winner every month.
The member (or family/friend member) chooses to pay £5 per month by regular standing order payment and is allocated a number. They keep this number and their number is entered into each monthly draw, as long as the standing order remains valid.
Of course, more than one monthly ‘chance’ can be purchased, with a different number allocated for each £5 payment. So it’s a great opportunity to buy ‘chances’ for each member of your family or buy several ‘chances’ for yourself… SOMEONE WINS EACH MONTH AND IT COULD BE YOU!
The draw also helps the Club with fundraising, with proceeds each month split between LMC Club fundraising, and the winner. The winner receives a cheque for 30% of the month’s proceeds and 70% is retained in Club funds.
Each monthly draw will take place with at least 1 LMC Committee member and 2 other LMC members present, at the monthly social meet or regular climbing meet, and the winner’s name and winning number will be announced in the Meets list and displayed on the LMC website each month.

Recovering after the bonfire, we drew Ian Phillips as the October winner of the 200 Club.
We eventually got around to AOB at the recent LMC Committee meeting so Richard was able to get Jean to do the September draw for the 200 Club. The joint winners were Jenny and Lauren McMullan!
Sat under the canopy of the Royal Oak in Appleby, at the conclusion of the Dales High Way Wednesday Wander(s!), we did the 200 Club draws for July and August. There were 12 extremely vigilant scrutineers – well, drinkers actually!
And the winner for August was Dave and Julie Sudell. OK, this sounds like two people but in reality it’s just one. Someone suggested that we write the cheque, tear it in half, and give Julie and Dave respectively one half each.
And the winner for July was Ian Philips. Yet again you say!!!!! As a statistician, this result has now destroyed all my faith in this aspect of mathematics!!
May draw was done during the Committee meeting. The winner this month was Mike Haines
Norma Walker was the April winner of the 200 Club draw during the excellent Jordan Zoom talk.
The March draw was made on a Tuesday evening, whilst we were watching some excellent photos on Zoom. Roger Gott was the lucky winner!

The March winner was Mike Rosser
The lucky winner for February was Angela McMullan. We drew the ticket on Tuesday during the break in David’s excellent lecture about America!
Ian Philips was the lucky winner of the January draw, drawn at the Pie & Peas night.
The lucky December draw at the cafe during our Wed Wanderers Christmas Meal was Steve Lyon. This was one of the two double prize draws which we have at this time of the year.
November winner: Andy Bond
The winner of the September draw was #24, Richard Duerden. The draw took place in the tranquility of the Wicklow Hills (actually in the mayhem of the Glenmalure Lodge!) in front of countless international witnesses!
It was several months before we were able to conduct the 200 Club monthly draw. The main reason had been the lack of attendances at any of the beginning-of-the-month social meetings. (The draw will only be conducted when there are several bone-fide witnesses present and when the draw numbers can, preferably, be taken out of the bag by a non-LMC member.) The first opportunity for several months was over a recent Bank Holiday weekend. The draw took place on a Sunday night by a member of the Climbers’ Club in front of 5 LMC witnesses. As a reminder, each number costs £5 per month and the prize is 30% of the monthly takings. People can (and some do!) have more than one number. So for example across all the Toon family, £45 goes into the LMC coffers each month on 200 Club draw numbers. That’s £540 per year.
The winning numbers and people were April, 4 David Toon; May, 28 Kev Massey; June [double winnings as this is the Wasdale bonus!], 29 Kev Massey; July, 2 David Toon; August, 5 Kate Toon.
The current winnings are £73.50 per month.
Duncan Scattergood was the lucky March winner, drawn on Tuesday night at the fun evening. We had lots of really interesting pictures and tales.
February’s winner was Dave Buchanan!! The draw was at the seminar on ice climbing and hard sports climbing.
The January draw went to Bernard Smith.
We did a bumper 200 Club draw session during the pies and peas night! Things had been delayed due to a variety of reasons!!! The lucky people people were Ian Philips for the November (Dinner meet) double draw which was worth a cool £147! Congrats to Ian on his second win of 2018!! The December draw for a mere £73-50 was won by Iain Aitchison.
October: Angela McMullan
September: Emma Birkett
The guest speaker at Wiltonfest, Naomi Boys – (you’ve seen her on the front cover of Lancashire Rock!!) – drew Janette Braithwaite as our August winner
Mary did the draw before our Wed Wanderers meal in Pooley Bridge after a fabulous walk along High Street. This was the conclusion of the Abbots Way which started in Ilkley several weeks ago. A great expedition!! The winner for July is Frank Roberts.
June winner: Ian Philips
The May draw on Tuesday at Bobs Smithy was won by Sarah (Medcalf) Leneham.
April’s winner: David Toon
After an excellent evening of Himalayan photos on Tuesday night. Roger Gott had arranged the trek so it was a fitting coincidence that he won the March 200 Club draw.
