Club Night will kick off again on this Thursday, 19th Oct 2017. Please be at the club at 7.45pm sharp. Cost is €3.
For those who haven’t played before it’s a blitz format, where you play 4 x 15 minute games. Again great fun guaranteed.
The Committee are looking for volunteers to join the rota to run Club night. Five of last year’s crew are staying on, ideally we’d like three to five more volunteers so that each pair would be on one week in four or five. It’s easy to learn how to run the blitz and you can play on the night as well, so please step up if interested. Please contact Anne O’Hea on 086 3549771 if you can get involved.
A big thanks to all on last year’s blitz rota!
