We had our Winter Social last Saturday. There wasn’t a huge turnout and the weather was rubbish but we made a good night of it! We started off at the Prestonville Arms, then up to the Good Companions for a bite to eat and then out to Bar Broadway to dance the night away into the wee hours! Thanks to everyone who came out. It was a great night!
Tomorrow evening we have our LAST indoor softball session of 2018! We’ll be at the University of Sussex Sports Centre from 8pm-10pm. Come along and bring your friends! It’s just £5 per person. You can find out more about indoor softball further down this email.
Next Sunday we have our annual indoor softball tournament! Snowball IV takes place on 16th December and we need you to come along! If you’d like to play or just come and help out on the day, you can fill out the signup form here:
The full tournament info pack is available at this link:
We’ll need as much help as we can get on the day to make sure it all runs smoothly. We’ll also be holding a raffle on the day so it would be greatly appreciated if you could donate a prize for the raffle. It doesn’t have to be anything big or expensive. Anything you can donate would be a great help! You can bring raffle prizes to the venue on the day of the tournament.
If anyone would be able to give me a lift up to the venue with the kit tomorrow evening I’d really appreciate it. Please let me know if you can help me out!
