Parkway Swim Club - Time Drop Raffle

Posted by Parkway Swim Club on Apr 20 2021 at 09:12AM PDT

We have put together a simple fund raiser to help support our 2020-21 swim season, titled “Time Drop Raffle”. So what is a “Time Drop Raffle”? Each season the coaches total up all the time dropped across all the competitive swims of each swimmer. These totals are used for the 30-60-90-120 time drop awards announced and handed out at our annual swim banquet. So this year we will add up the time drops for each swimmer to get a grand total number of seconds dropped by ALL our club swimmers. This number will be the target of the Time Drop Raffle. The winner of the raffle will receive $500, if more than 1 person selects the winning number, each winner will share the $500 prize.

Each swimmer (or family) will be asked to sell 5 raffle tickets (or more) at a cost of $5 per ticket. The ticket will contain the name of the person buying the ticket, their total number of seconds guess, and their cell phone or e-mail contact info. Each swimmer will return the sold/completed tickets and $$$ to their group coach. At the end of the season we will determine the winner(s) of the raffle and contact them to receive their winning prize.

Parkway Swim Club has worked tirelessly during the 2020-21 season to provide many opportunities for our swimmers to compete. We have conducted more swim meets this season than the past 3 years combined. COVID restrictions have presented numerous challenges, but Parkway Swim Club has taken on these challenges and provided numerous meets to allow our swimmers to continue to progress. This fund raiser will help support the costs required to pull off our successful 2020-21 season.

Tickets will be distributed to swimmers at practice by their group coach in the coming days. Again each swimmer is requested to sell at least 5 tickets at a cost of $5 per ticket. Tickets should be completed and returned, with the sales $$$ to your group coach. More tickets will also be available from your group coach should you wish to sell more than the requested 5 tickets per swimmer. If you have questions about this please contact Blair Porter at
