Rugby raffle raises $3,000

To benefit Bald Mountain boys

The Bald Mountain Rugby Football Club staged a successful raffle and party Saturday at Whiskey Jacques in Ketchum.

A total $3,000 was raised after paying for the printing of tickets and party expenses.

Club officials said that 383 raffle tickets were sold for the three prizes being offered.

The prizes were:

·  The season ski pass donated by Sun Valley Company was won by longtime club benefactor Bob Kaplan of Ketchum.

·  The Sunday brunch for four at the Lodge Dining Room was won by Clint Lightner of Ketchum.

Both prizes were donated to the Bald Mountain Rugby Club because club members helped with the set-up and take down of October’s Swing ‘N Dixie Jazz Festival in Sun Valley.

·  The Smith package of goggles and glasses donated by Smith Sport Optics was won by Ali Warner of Ketchum.

Past winners of the rugby club’s raffle prizes were Griffith Tarlow of Ketchum, the 2000 season ski pass, and Derek Lloyd of Ketchum, the 1999 season ski pass.

Approximately 75% of the club’s annual revenue comes from the raffle. Funds pay for tournament entry fees, barbecues at home matches, referee fees, new equipment and occasional social events.

One more rugby fund-raising event will be held Thursday, Nov. 29 at Whiskey Jacques. It will occur at a farewell party for Kirk Chauncey and Matt Stacey, who are going to New Zealand to travel and play rugby.

Kaplan, an Olympic athlete and former member of the U.S. national rugby team, has donated several jerseys from some of his international matches.

They will be auctioned off at Whiskey Jacques Nov. 29. Kaplan helped organize the Ketchum rugby club during the early 1970s.
