Jack The Joker
|No. Drawn - 14|
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Crotty’s Bar where the jackpot is €3,800 as on Sunday night John Gorman was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 14 which wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Jake Tobin and Mossie Joyce won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar, Abbeyside Post Office and Crotty’s Corner Bar.
On Friday night last there wasn’t even standing room in the Park Hotel for what turned out to be a truly fantastic night, as we staged our first Strictly Dance fundraiser. To say the night was a success would be a gross understatement as the night was both a fundraising success and also a great night’s entertainment. We would like to thank the Park Hotel for all their assistance on the night, the businesses who sponsored dancers or ads in the programme and all those who attended on the night or who sponsored the dancers privately. Most importantly though we thank the small but hardworking organising committee and last but certainly not least, the brave dancers who put so much work into practicing for the night, without them it simply would not have been the success it was. Once again thanks to all those who helped make the night such a wonderful success.

This week our club bingo session returns to the CBS Hall at 8pm. Our thanks to all who attended last Sunday’s Monster Bingo, and to the staff of the Park Hotel for all their assistance on the day.
Any person who is interested in managing our adult teams in 2017 is asked to submit their name to Jonathan O’Donovan by December 8th at 8pm. For 2017 the Club Committee have decided that both of our senior teams will be managed by the same person so those submitting their names must be willing to take on the responsibility of managing both teams. This practice is also to be implemented with our Junior/Intermediate and under 21 teams where the management teams must take the teams in both codes.
