Ringette Community Raffle

NRL Manitoba is planning to coordinate a fundraising attempt for all Ringette organizations in Manitoba through the introduction of an annual community raffle that will generate sufficient revenue for all member programs in the ongoing quest to give all kids an opportunity.

The proposed raffle is “travel/culinary/shopping” themed and would consist of multiple prizes with a retail value in excess of $20,000.

• California Wine Tour for 2
• Two airline tickets anywhere in world that WestJet flies
• Wine for a Year (one case/month)
• $2,000 Shopping Spree
• Winnipeg Restaurant Tour (Dinner for 4 at 4 Winnipeg Restaurants)
• Helicopter Tour of Winnipeg

We are going to do this raffle in a hybrid situation where you can sell books of printed tickets and/or sell via an electronic link to our raffle page that is run by a Lotteries & Gaming Authority approved vendor. We cannot do this raffle without a 1,200 book commitment. About 40 teams need to sign on with interest.

Tickets – 70% of the proceeds remain with your team and 30% are used by NRL Manitoba to pay for the prizes, license fees, reporting and admin costs. If there is money remaining it helps offset the costs of operating the NRL team.
As an example, if your team committs to just 30 books of tickets (30 books x 10 tickets x $10 per ticket), your cost lay out would be 30% or $900 and by selling the 30 books you would collect $3,000 making a $2,100 profit for your team.

Online – 60% of the proceeds remain with your team. You do not have to deal with handing out or keeping track of tickets or cash, everything is online and auditable and managed by a Lotteries approved company called Funding Change. The online provider charges NRL Manitoba 15% in fees for this service and 3% in fees for credit/debit card processing.

Every team that wishes to do the sales online will be provided a link to the raffle page. The link is unique for each team and will attribute sales to your team. All you need do is send this link to players’ and parents’ friends, family, etc via email, text, Facebook, etc.
The team must place a deposit of $600 with NRL Manitoba to get the unique link and once the team sells $1500 worth of tickets this deposit is returned. (This deposit is in place of the 30 books of tickets commitment.)

Both Tickets & Online – if a team takes 30 books of tickets and wants an online link, there is no deposit required for the link.

DEADLINE – you must commit to the raffle by Nov 15th. Sales will begin December and run into April.  There will be early bird draws in January and March and the Grand Prize will be made during CRCs and announced at the Gold Medal NRL game at the CRCs in April.

2017 Power Smart Manitoba Winter Games – Winnipeg East and East

Ringette Regional Skill Development Camps

The 2017 Games will be open to U14 girls (Eligible birth years: 2004 and 2005) – U14AA players are not eligible. Each region will select only one team from all girls registered with the birth years listed. Those who are selected to represent their region will then compete against top players from all the other regions in the Province where they will be able to showcase their skills and talents in a multi-faceted, multi-sport environment.

Ringette Manitoba will field six (6) teams in total, one team from each rural region (North, South, East, West) and two teams from Winnipeg. The two (2) teams being formed in Winnipeg will be split as Winnipeg East (River East Ringette, Transcona Ringette and Boni-Vital Ringette) and Winnipeg West (Southwest Winnipeg Ringette, St. James Ringette and North Winnipeg Ringette). Sport Manitoba has redrawn their boundaries creating the new regions North, South, East and West. The new regional map and more information is available on the Sport Manitoba website.

Ringette Manitoba will be holding regional camps for all eligible players who are interested in trying out for their regional games team. The first ice times will not be a tryout, but will be a skills session to help the players develop prior to the games. The first set of tryouts will be held in the fall, with the second set being held in December. Players wishing to attend the tryouts MUST attend the skills sessions. Any players who do not attend the skills sessions being offered now will not be eligible to attend tryouts in the fall.

We are unsure at this time if the AA teams will be announced prior to the registration deadline. We recommend that all interested players at the U14 age register regardless of whether you have tried out for AA or not. Once U14 AA team formations are confirmed we will adjust the registrations and registration fees if needed.

If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Reimer, 204-925-5713

Refunds will only be accepted with a doctors note, there will be a 25 % admin fee on all refunds. (This does not apply to AA Team Formation conflicts).
