I'm in Lucky Dip, how does it work?
Everyone in Lucky Dip needs to be on the floor on time in order to be allocated a partner. Men will have a number pinned to their back, ladies will need their coloured slip from their booking envelope. After being partnered ladies slips will be collected and their partners corresponding number recorded. This is your partner for the entire Lucky Dip. Numbers will be called for the heats, so after allocation you need to stay nearby.
