How it Works
To enter, you will need to either buy a ticket for $20 and a bottle of wine (recommended value $20) or $40 all in*.
Once a participant has bought a ticket they have joined “the Island” and their name is placed into the bucket. The more entries you buy, the better your chances of surviving and winning the grand prize!
The $20 goes towards Humewood School Council and the wine to the winners!
*Keep in mind you can buy as many entries as you like 😉
The Champion receives 50% of the wine, which they get to hand select; 30% for second; 20% for third.
Every day, several names will be drawn out of the bucket, the names drawn will be “voted off the island” i.e. eliminated. An email will be sent out to all participants each day letting everyone know the results and giving people the option of buying back in. The final elimination set for the Snowball, where we will announce the 3 winners.
Buying Back In
IF you are “voted off the island”/ eliminated and you want to get back in, never fear there is a plan for that. Pay an additional $20 for your name to be placed back in the bucket – no additional wine required. If voted off, you can pay your $20 via the Student Council website by 4:00 pm the next day. Each person can buy back in only once but after that, you’re out.
At end of the competition All players who are “voted off the island” will have a chance to win a gift card (to the LCBO of course) to drown your sorrows over being voted off the island.
Every day one name will be drawn from the bucket for “immunity”. That person will be exempt from the draw that day (i.e. have immunity for one day).
Money and Wine
There are two ways you can sign up:
1. Lisa (Charlie & Lola’s Mom) will be setting up a table a few mornings to sign people up. You’ll be able to give her your money and wine in the schoolyard.
2. You can sign up and pay the $20 or $40 fee via the Humewood Council Online Store and drop the wine off to Lisa and Moe house at an agreed upon time via email.
