Les Bond was laughing all the way to the bank this week after winning the Deniliquin RSL Club’s membership draw last Friday.
His membership card number was called in the first of two planned draws for the night, making him $12,900 richer.
Les was the envy of all members who had piled into the club with the hopes they would see their own number pop up on the screens around the venue.
‘‘I’ve been a club member since the RSL was built here,’’ Mr Bond said.
‘‘My name hasn’t been drawn before. I couldn’t believe it – I had to take a second look.’’
Mr Bond, who celebrated his win with friends at the club, said he attends the members’ draw every Friday.
‘‘My friends made sure I shouted them a beer that night!
‘‘I think I’ll use the money to renovate the house and go on a holiday with the rest.’’
RSL Club duty manager Jocelyn Chaplin congratulated Mr Bond on behalf of all RSL employees.
Tonight’s draw has been re-set at $5000. There are two chances to win between 6.30pm and 9pm, although a second draw is only held if not won in the first.
If not won, the prize increases $300 a week. Members must be on club premises at the time of the draw, with their membership card, to be eligible to win.
