FFSA are providing all WBSA clubs with an opportunity to fund raise through this event. Tickets for the event have been provided to WBSA, the cost of the tickets is $10.00. Clubs have the opportunity to sell the tickets and retain all of the revenue from the sale of the tickets. For example, if Club X sells 200 tickets, the club retains the $2000.00. All of the money from this Regional Round will stay within the region. FFSA want to work with the clubs and association to make this event a success and input is required from all clubs. FFSA strongly encourages all clubs to contact WBSA to gain their allocation of tickets and by doing so you will not only be supporting the Regional Round but also your own club. [more]
