Bumper weekend ahead - lets hope the rain and storms die down and that we're set of a cracking weekend topped off by our second informal social of the season and the 200 Club Draw.
The Player Survey highlighted people liked the idea of informal nights to stay down the club and know folks would be around - so these are your nights to get our hockey community socialising and meeting old and new players. There's no tickets, nothing fancy just the chance to catch up and get the season off the a flying start with a few drinks. Stay down after your game or come back down - the 200 club draw is at 6pm so you've even the chance to win some loot too !
