Winner takes home beer for a year

Paul Arbo, the first early-bird winner of the Cayman Rugby Football Union’s World Cup competition, has walked away with – among other things – 15 cases of Heineken, which works out to one bottle of beer each day for a year.

Mr. Arbo also received a Cayman Rugby national shirt, as well as a Heineken goodie bag.

“This is not too bad for a starter! I do look forward to winning the grand prize of a trip to New Zealand, but the beer will definitely tide me over,” laughed Mr. Arbo.

He says that some of his friends and work colleagues at BDO may well benefit from his win, as he cannot see himself getting through 360 bottles of Heineken without some help.

The main prize is a VIP trip for two to the IRB Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, including two return tickets from Cayman to Auckland, tickets to one semi-final and the final, as well as accommodation for 10 days.

The winner will arrive in New Zealand on 13 October and depart on 15 October.

Other prizes include a round-trip on Cayman Airways to any Cayman Airways gateway, a year of cable with HD service from WestStar TV, and gift certificates from Lone Star and GNC.

Weekly draws will take place up until the main prize draw on 14 May. All tickets, including weekly prize winners from previous draws, will go back into the next draw and also the Main Prize Draw.

Tickets are $25 each or $200 for a book of 10.

Tickets can be reserved online at and paid for at reception at Cayman Free Press, or can be purchased from the Cayman Rugby Club, Jacques Scott stores and WestStar.

The competition is sponsored by the Cayman Rugby Football Union, the Caymanian Compass and Heineken.
