The draw

Introduction

The draw is the whole point of the Colonel's Weekend Breaks. The whole three days leads up to this point, where the destinations for the following break are revealed and then one of them is selected as the next destination, to be visited in six months time. The draw can be a moment of high tension and drama, as treasured destinations that have taken anything from three months to three minutes to select, are eliminated one by one. In order that the draw proceeds more smoothly, the Colonel's Regiment introduced the concept of the rehearsal draw to the proceedings in Dublin. It has been suggested that we save money on the break and just do a draw every six months instead. This suggestion has not yet been implemented.

Draw structure

Rounds

Many of the other mascots also have parts to play in the draw.

Do it yourself

You can now do a Colonel's draw in the comfort of your own home (or just at home, if your home is not comfortable!)

Prepare pizza, and then follow any link you find to the Colonel's Break draw simulator. [Here is one!]
