It is now nearing the deadline for entering the Club Rossie Draw. Those who were members in previous years have already been notified by post and those who haven’t yet re-joined are currently being contacted. New or re-joining members may contact Mike Junior Smith or any Club officer.
Those who have not yet rectified their direct debit arrangements for the Club Lotto competition are urged to do so immediately. New members are also very welcome and with the jackpot at the current level of €8,800, it could be very rewarding to do so.
Those who are participants in the Club’s “Know Your Sport” sports prediction competition will be interested to know that performances are updated regularly on Boylegaa.com as each relevant sporting event is ended. Tony Conboy and John Comiskey are currently joint leaders, but all entrants are still very much in the race for the €800 on offer.
The Club is currently arranging a used clothes collection. You are asked to do a spring clean and put your no longer required clothes in bags and contact any Club officer to arrange to have them deposited in the Clubroom.
