Just a few reminders of what is happening soon and a request for assistance.
On Saturday 26th May it’s our May Month End melee.
On Sunday 27th we are hosting a Northern Summer League Pairs competition. As it’s a Silver ranking event so entrants must be either EPA licensed or Northern associates. It’s £5 per head to enter and the format will be leagues followed by a Rolling Knockout. There are still plenty of spaces available so it’s a great opportunity for our members who are Northern Associate registered to play a group of talented players from around the Northern Region. You can either register online at the Northern web site or I can enter you. Just let me know.
Wednesday 30th May we are to be visited by the Kirklees Chief Executive as she has a look around Heckmondwike. She is keen to meet us as we are one of the best social groups taking part in healthy exercise in the area. Please be there to fly our flag.
Some of you will be aware that a week ago we held a petanque taster session for 23 youngsters from local schools. Well they want to come again and hope to bring more children from other schools. At present the proposed dates are Thursday afternoons, 2.00 – 3.00pm, throughout June plus one Thursday in early July. Its quite possible that a couple of sessions may be extended by an hour to include the chance for parents to join in with the children. If you have some time free for any of these sessions and don’t mind showing a group of children aged between 7 – 10 how to enjoy a game of petanque then please let me know soon.
