Yorkshire Pride Lottery Draw - Week 5 (21/11/11)
The draw for Week 5 of the Yorkshire Pride Lottery took place at Lottery HQ on Kirkstall Lane on the 21st of October 2011. We used set of balls number 4 and the machine chosen was 'Hugh Grant's Love Child'.
Hello everyone! I'm going to have to start with an apology for the fact that these results are so late. We had an interesting collection of issues this week. Firstly, mum's uber-Lotto computer died a death (in fairness it had been making a noise not unlike a damaged Lancaster bomber for the past couple of months so that was no great surprise). Secondly, she buggered-off to Scotland to see some friends. To my mind this showed scant regard for her loyal members and I have told her so! Thirdly, my wi-fi connection at home decided to collapse thus leaving me a bit helpless. It would seem that Mr. Branson can afford to purchase publicly owned banks yet can't quite manage to maintain a decent broadband service in the more remote areas of...er....suburban Leeds!
I was up at the Club on Tuesday for some lunch. I saw David Ryder. He was a bit fidgety and distracted. I put this down to the fact that he was due to give evidence at the Leveson Inquiry the following day. Apparently he first became suspicious that his phone had been hacked when the Colton 2nd XI seemed to have prior knowledge of the batting order at last season's 'Wilson's Pies Cup' clash against Collingham. Worse was to come. That weekend's 'News of The World' bore the headline 'YCCC supremo in out-of-date sausage scoffing shock'. He bought all of the copies in the Leeds area so you wouldn't have seen it. The only person he actually admitted this horrific culinary misdemeanour to was Graham Hallam, our king of the kitchen. And even then this was only because G had left him a message along the lines of "Did you eat those rancid green sausages at the back of the fridge??". Anyway, he has the constitution of an ox and seems to be none the worse for his frenzied gannetry.
By jingo there's been some luck this week. I mentioned a few weeks ago that Peter Stanton had broken new ground by winning 3 tenners. Now Falky's done it as well! I suppose we'll just have to be thankful that it wasn't the jackpot and £200! Well done to all the winners and a special helllo to Mr. King down in Hemel Hempstead. I'm not sure what a 'Hemel' is. It sounds a bit Germanic! Answers on a postcard to.....
