Final Call for NMCL Tickets!

NMCL Presentation evening - 7.30pm for 8pm Elizabethan Suite Town Hall - Friday 9th November 2007

Those confirmed to KC:

Paul Meehan / Kieran Coe / Clive Brooks / Russell Brooks / Duncan Phillips / Matt Hunt / Martin Deegan / Pete Allen / Nicholas Hudson

We have 1 ticket left from our initial allocation but we can obtain more should there be interest. Please note that we need to confirm final numbers by NOV 1ST! It's a good night (we're getting trophies and there's endless potential for other club banter) and there will be pre-match drinks and almost certainly a post-bash trip to Chicagos too!

Please let Kieran know if you are interested - this is a club night, not just a 1st team event!

Race Night/NMCL Evening Tickets

Hi folks,

We need to ensure a good turn out at both of November's big events - the NMCL dinner where we'll be picking up a number of trophies, and of course our very own club race night.

Tickets for the NMCL night are £13, which includes dinner, the chance to heckle Catholics and Kieran's obligatory 200yd taxi ride from the library to the Elizabethan Suite. Tickets will be available at the Curry Night on friday, or from Kieran at any time. Please support this - we had a good turnout last year and we are again picking up prizes - the speaker is May Loye, of Lancs and England.

Race night - 36 horses are available from Clive at the usual price of £5; all details are the same as last year. We're also looking for 6 hardy souls to MC a race; this proved quite amusing last year (Scoop!!), so if anyone would like to have a go please help out and don't leave it to the usual folks! Again, let us know on Friday if this interests you.

New 100 Club Winners

Hi all,

The draws for the first two months of the new 100 club have been made and here are the winners:

SEPT: 16 - Richard Peacock, £50; 12 - Clive Brooks, £30; 9 - Martin Deegan, £20
OCT: 5 - Paul Meehan, £50; 13 - Rachel Brooks, £30; 11 - Stefan Phillips, £20

Please can we urge those playing members who have not signed up to do so immediately, and also remind you that friends, family, work colleagues etc are most welcome. At the moment, your chances of winning the top prize on the lottery are approx 1 in 14 million. Your chances of winning top prize in our monthly draw are currently about 32 to 1!

Duncan's going to get an electronic version of the standing order and blurb so I can add it to the site, then any of you can download copies for your friends and family. Please please help support us - every 10 extra people we get makes the club £600, and we're going to need every penny to help the club develop over the next couple of years.

Committee Meeting and League Averages

There will be a committee meeting on Tues Oct 9th at the Royal (7.30pm) where we'll be getting to grips with race night and progress on the Boxing Day event, among other things - if any non committee members wish to raise any issues, can they get in touch with one of us (me, Kieran, Scott, Clive, Russ, Dickie P, Duncan etc...)

The NMCL averages are now out and Kieran has insisted that I tell you that "after 43 years of trying" I have won the 1st division bowling! Many congrats also to Ashley (5th in Div 1 batting), Micky J (3rd in Div 3 w/k) and Asif (5th in Div 3 bowling) for their high placings! More kudos and silverware for the league dinner!
