Duck Race Ticket Selling Instructions
Rather than making several quick 60 second statements on how best to prepare the Duck Race tickets for me, I thought it might be easiest to just highlight three key points – (and hopefully this will only take about a minute to read so it’s a win-win!)
Blocks of 30 are best! Each book of 30 tickets has been entered into the computer that way – so it is far easier for me if you can give stuff to me in that quantity – one book of tickets and $150 of cash and checks, two books of tickets and $300 of cash and checks, etc. It takes me just as long to enter 5 tickets as it does to enter 30 tickets (and actually, if you have several books in consecutive order, it takes me the same amount of time to enter all 60 or even 90 tickets). Getting me a couple of tickets at a time, while done with the very best of intentions, is not optimal for me.
Doublecheck all information! Please make sure that every single ticket has a legible name and a legible phone number (the address is extra and not really needed). I highly recommend doing this at the point of sale or certainly before you turn your tickets in to me. If this information is missing, I need to write it in on every blank ticket. If it’s not legible, I need to follow-up with the ticket seller and see if we can determine who bought the ticket(s).
Keep tickets stubs with proceeds! Finally, please bundle the ticket stubs and checks/cash together. An envelope works great! So does a rubber band or a clip. If they are not bundled, I have to enter all those that are and hope that what’s left over matches.
