    Default The position of "each"

    Please tell me if the position of "each" in the following sentence is okay.
    Does the sentence mean that each of the 600 people receive a registration sheet?

    The audience will be chosen by lot and a registration sheet each will be sent to 600 people.

    I don't see a need for "each" at all.
