About the Bathurst Curling Club

The non-profit, volunteer-run Bathurst Curling Club has been a fixture on St. Andrew Street in the Bathurst community since 1909. Over the years we have supported curlers of all ages and sponsored community events including the Canada Winter Games. We have been a meeting place for a variety of Bathurst organizations. For the past twenty plus years “Curl for Cancer” has raised tens of thousands of dollars annually.

TICKET PRICES

$5.00 for 1 ticket or $20.00 for 6 tickets

Where will the lottery funds go?

Our curlers want to continue to be a vital community organization by promoting active living through curling for all ages and by supporting community events or groups.

The Bathurst Curling Club will use the proceeds to help with

  • Operation expenses so everyone can afford to curl
  • Energy projects to improve efficiency and to become greener
  • Improving the accessibility of the building
  • Local charities: the Bathurst Volunteer Center, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 18, the Multicultural Association of the Chaleur region, the Emergency Shelter, the food programs for the students within the French and English Bathurst school systems, and the Bathurst Heritage Museum.

Who can play

  • Anyone who is 19 years or older.
  • You must be in New Brunswick at the time of the ticket purchase.

How to play the Bathurst Curling Club and Community Chase the Ace

The first draw will be Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at the Bathurst Curling Club at 9PM. Each Wednesday thereafter, one winning ticket will be drawn at random from the week’s ticket sales. The holder of that winning ticket will win 20% of the week’s ticket sales and a chance to draw the Ace of Hearts. If the Ace of Hearts is drawn that person shall win the Chase the Ace Jackpot.

The jackpot will start at $5 000.00+

The Bathurst Curling Club and Community Chase the Ace will run for as long as it takes for a person to select the Ace of Hearts to a maximum of 52 weeks.

You do not have to be present to win but it would be more fun if you are present when your name is drawn!

Distribution of the weekly ticket sales:

  • 20% will be awarded to the winning ticket holder
  • 30% will be added to the Jackpot
  • 50% goes to the Bathurst Curling Club Inc. and local charities

The actual draw procedure

All draws will be live streamed on Facebook.

If the winning ticket holder is present, a choice of the remaining cards displayed on the board will be made by the night’s winner pointing to the chosen card. That card will be revealed by the designated committee member while being streamed.

If the winning ticket holder is not present, the winning ticket holder will be called and informed about the number of remaining cards ( ie: 1- 52, 1- 51, 1-50 and so on depending on the number of weeks there has been a draw). Once the night’s winner has selected a number and that the number is confirmed verbally, that number will be drawn from the board with the cards and that card will be revealed by a committee member.

If the night’s winner is called but is not available within 15 minutes of the first phone call, a random choice will be made by numbered bingo balls that match the number of playing cards on the board being placed in the spinner. The numbered ball dropped will be the winning ticket holder’s card choice for that week’s draw.

Please note: If the name and or the phone number is not legible, a random choice will be made by numbered bingo balls that match the number of playing cards on the board being placed in the spinner. The numbered ball dropped will be the winning ticket holder’s card choice for that week’s draw. The ticket holder will have 48 hours to present their ticket stub. If that ticket owner does not present the ticket, that week’s winnings will be added to the following week’s winnings.

Donation Draw System

Of the other 50%, 12.5% of that will be donated to the winning BENEFITING CHARITY that will be chosen from the list of 7 charities and drawn at random each week following the main draw. The 7 charities will have their names in the draw 6 times each. If the draw reaches weekly draw number 43 onto 52, the donation to the BENEFITING CHARITY will be equally divided between all 7 charities.
