A message from our treasurer:
It would be awesome to have as many people as possible with their trip fees and memberships all paid up by next week's AGM. The Treasurer will be sending out emails today (hopefully) letting you know how much you owe, if you still do, and will be around at the OGM tonight if you'd like to pay then, or alternatively at the pub this thursday. Email ejs21 with any queries, or for bank transfer details. 

House Crawl houses needed
If you have spoken to Tim about being a stop on the house crawl he has probably forgotten. If you would like to be part of this one off wonderful experience please e-mail trc3 so he can plan a route. The current proposed date will be the last friday before the easter holidays (fri 15th)

Our very own Patsy is having a Race Night in Rascals on Monday from 9:30pm, to raise money for Childreach International. We will all be heading to Rascals after the pool session at about 9pm, and it's guaranteed to be a good night.

Apologies that the email is quite late, James and I were getting carried away with computer games...
