Rockwell Rovers GAA Cub will launch the new nationwide show "The Chaser" as their major fundraiser for this year in Halla Na Féile on Sunday May 5th.The Chaser is run on a nationwide scale by Tipperary Company Pallas Marketing. Each of the 6 contestants selected can win €1500 at the show on Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend.Contestants are drawn from the audience and answer 7 questions with 4 possible answers valued at €100, €200, €300, €400, €600, €800, €1,000. The underlined amounts in red are milestones - contestant must choose after each question if they wish to bank the amount won or take another question. Contestants have two lifelines “Ask the audience” and “Take one” which will reduce the number of answers by one. Each lifeline can be used once.Contestants then take the amount won to face The Chaser. They start on step 5 and The Chaser starts on step 7. The Chaser will offer 150% of amount won to take a step nearer or 30% of amount won to take a step nearer home. Rockwell Rovers will be selecting The Chaser to save the funds for the local club shortly.Mary Newman Julian from the local organising committee said that the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the redevelopment of Rockwell Rovers GAA Club facilities and she extended an open welcome to all to attend the launch.
