On February 8, Ballygunner Hurling Club brings the hugely popular ‘The Chaser ‘ to the Dunmore Road venue. This show is attracting audiences of all ages which is no surprise . The show has all the ingredients to ensure everyone will be entertained and have a great night out while contributing to the fundraising efforts of Ballygunner Hurling Club’s Capital Programme.
The launch night took place on Thursday night in Jack Meade’s and a large attendance enjoyed hearing from the marketing experts Pallas Marketing on how the show runs, the fun attaching to the night and a trial run with Pauric Mahony surely got the crowd going. What was clear from the launch night is this is a Hi Tech professional show with big money on offer for those lucky contestants and a superb night of entertainment for all the family.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Contestants will be drawn from the audience and answer seven questions with four possible answers values from €100 to €1000 respectively – the questions in red being the milestones – the contestant must choose after each question if the 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 they have won to face ‘The Chaser’ – They start on step five and The Chaser starts on step sevem –The Chaser will offer 150% of the amount won to take a step nearer or 30% of the amount won to take a step nearer home. The objective of The Chaser is to catch up with the contestant and stop them from winning.
