Denis Johnston Memorial Cup
The Denis Johnston Memorial Cup competition will commence in October. Last year we had two teams competing with team 1 members winning the cup. The members were Kathryn Raleigh, Jacinta Digby, Tomasz Koza and Dave Costello. If members wish to compete in this competition they can now register their names on the form in the clubhouse.
The ladies and men’s autumn leagues will be starting in October and promotion and relegation in each group make these leagues very competitive. Of course their conclusion also sees major movement on the pyramids. Closing date for entries is Thursday 4th October. The official form is now in the clubhouse.
