'Four hundred tickets and months later, the Bitterns Raffle is about to be drawn. And what better place than the LBT weekly dinner. This Monday, the 21st of March, the fortunate winners will be picked out of the hat, or the pot, or the bag, and given almost all of Franklin has a ticket in their pocket everyone is welcome to participate. The winners will be contacted individually to collect their many and varied prizes. Sincere thanks from the Bitterns rowing group to all those who parted with their five bucks or multiples thereof.'
