Independence Group Named September Lottery Team of the Month
Congratulations to "The Court Jesters" of Independence! The group has been named the Lottery Team of the Month for September as part of the Missouri Lottery’s 2006 Lottery Captain’s promotion. The promotion awards a Lottery players group with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month during the calendar year.
"The Court Jesters" are a group of 11 co-workers from the Jackson County Courthouse Annex. The members are: Colleen Moore (team captain), Karen Coffin, Nanci Sorenson and Lori Greene, all of Independence; Lavonne Endicott, Buckner; Carmen Hubert, Raytown; Shirley Van Wyk, Belton; Kyle Diederich, Oak Grove; Sean Rhodell, Parkville; Judy Waterman and Sherrie Curts, both of Blue Springs.
The group started playing Powerball together about a year-and-a-half ago during a large Powerball jackpot. "The Court Jesters" put in $1-$2 each, mostly when the Powerball jackpot gets big. They use Quick Pick to let the computer choose their lucky numbers.
Although "The Court Jesters" haven’t won a jackpot yet, they keep playing for the dream of winning big.
"You can’t win if you don’t play," Moore said. "We’ll eventually win."
As team captain for the "The Court Jesters" for more than a year, Moore has learned what it takes to organize a Lottery team. Moore’s advice for other team captains is to "be consistent."
