Just a final reminder for our Christmas Gala which takes place in the Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre this Sunday the 21st of December. All club members are invited. Warm up is scheduled for 10:15 am with pool competitions from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and there will be a Christmas Party afterwards in the multi-purpose room until 2:30 pm – a party for which the Committee have been preparing feverishly for the last few weeks. Our Chairperson, Mike O’Sullivan also informs me that he is confident that Santa will be able to make a guest appearance. “He has been training all year and is looking really, really fit,” Mike said. “In fact, some people are now saying he looks a lot like George Clooney – except more intelligent, of course.”
As always, the Family Race will be the highlight of the days events. The obvious favourites, neck and neck at the moment in the betting, are the O’Brien family from Muckross and the Niewiadomska family from Castleisland. There are also rumours of a third family, as yet unknown, who have been spotted training in the Castlerosse. The lengths that some people will go to! Remember, it’s not about winning, it’s about taking part.
So, it all starts at 10:15 this Sunday morning. Watch out for the reindeer when reversing.
