A ballot for Kyabram Gift Ball tables will take place next year, such is the inclreasing popularity of the event.November 28, 2012 4:10am
The increasing popularity of the annual Kyabram Gift Ball means new booking arrangements will be in place for the 2013 event.
And due to the possibility of next year’s event clashing with a Federal election, the date for the 2013 Kyabram Gift Ball will be December 7 instead of mid-November.
This year’s ball was another huge success, with more than $83
With space in the hall limited, all 350 tickets were sold out months in advance and organiser Liz Dillon said the same thing is already happening for 2013.
‘‘I put out a survey to our table owners and got great feedback from about 20 of them,’’ Ms Dillon said.
‘‘All of them have asked to book a table for 2013 and I have also received emails and text messages from ball goers wanting to book a table.
‘‘It has taken us to 20 tables gone in three days and we haven’t even considered the committee tables or the shavees yet, and we’ve already had seven shavees come forward for next year.’’
Ms Dillon said the executive committee had to come up with a fair way to offer tables to the community.
‘‘Through the Free Press, school newsletters, email and Facebook, we are announcing a Gift Ball Ballot,’’ she said.
‘‘People have the chance to register for a table to go into a draw.
‘‘All bookings must be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and registration through phone, text, Facebook or to committee members will not be counted.’’
Only one registration per person is allowed and registrations close at noon on December 31, 2012. Those registering need to include name, email address, postal address and phone number.
The ballot for tables will be drawn in early January and they will then be offered to those names drawn out.
Ballot winners will have until March 31 to pay for their table in full and if they have not paid in full then the table will be offered to the next drawn out name.
All shavees will be offered one table only and will therefore need to go into the ballot for a chance of another. Once the ballot is drawn, no more shavees can be taken on for 2013 due to the inability to be able to offer them a table.
