The jig was up. The Ace of Spades couldn’t hide anymore. On Tuesday night, the Kemptville Lions Club held their 30th, and last, draw in the first round of their “Catch the Ace” lottery. Someone would win the jackpot that night.
The weekly prize of $665.00 was won by Jamie Forsyth when his ticket was the first one drawn. He chose envelope 11, but it only offered up the King of Hearts. The hunt for the Ace of Spades was on. Tickets would be drawn until it was found.
The very next ticket drawn would win the jackpot for Lillian Loney. Her choice was envelope 1, and the Ace of Spades was revealed.
There will be a second round of “Catch the Ace”. Tickets for the first draw go on sale December 4, with the first draw occurring at the Kemptville Legion Hall (100 Reuben Cres. Kemptville) at 7:30 on December 12.
