No JACKpot Joy!

posted Oct 11, 2011, 3:31 AM by Saval Gac

Green or White took place in the club on 1st October and was a great night with Jack Havern reaching the wheel at the end of the night. Unfortunately for Jack, he decided to pick Green but narrowly found White when he spun the wheel and missed out on the £1000 jackpot, instead going home with the £100 consolation prize.

It was an all Saval final quartet with Joan Quinn, Barrie McCoy, Sheila McConville and Jack in the final four, before Sheila and Jack made the final two. The games that got the 130 crowd down to the final four produced lots of fun, tension and cheering. Declan McCarthy won the shoot out competition against Domhnall Murphy in a sudden death showdown, while Emma Lennon and Michelle Rice’s game which saw them popping balloons with darts, also went to sudden death when both girls finished on equal marks at the end of the game. Anna Madine and Christine McCarthy served up an exciting game when Anna won by a single point while ‘shooting hoops’. But by far, the narrowest of margins went to Johnny McConville when he beat his brother, Christopher in the washing line challenge after Chris shot into an early lead.

Kevin Rice was also a winner on the night when he won £50 in the raffle, however, his ability to hook a duck leaves a lot to be desired!

A big thank you to all those who took part in the games, to all the contestants and to everyone in the Entertainment committee for their hard work. Thanks also to JP, Kevin and Dominic who took part in the fun games.  However, our biggest word of thanks go to our two hosts, Derrick McCarthy and John McNally whose laugh-a-minute jokes, costumes and tales kept the whole show together! They have also guaranteed their job as hosts for the next night in Saval!

Because the jackpot didn’t go, we will hold another night for someone else to have a go at ‘Marty’s Magic Wheel’ and their chance to win the jackpot! Watch this space for details......
