ROCKCORRY G.A.A. CLUB NOTES
11th January 2011
Well it’s that time of year again lads, time to dust the cobwebs off the old gear and get back into action. Our new team manager Cormac McFadden has informed me that training will start on Friday 21st January in St. Mary’s Hall and all players are requested to be ready to start at 8.30pm sharp.
The committee are currently finalising plans for the annual social and presentation night. Tickets will be on sale shortly and it is hoped that people within the community will turn out in large numbers to support the club as we get ready for the 2011 season. Watch this space for more details.
Top 4 Lotto Results
The numbers drawn last Monday night were 1, 14, 17 and 20. There was no jackpot winner of €5,400.00. The following won €15 each :- Breda McCaul Drumcall, Noel Craven Clontibret, Tracey Rooney Rockcorry, Carmel Duffy Glaslough, Liz Carroll Rockcorry, Amy Jo Kierans Aghabog, Aiden Sheridan Rockcorry, Melissa McGorman Newbliss. Next week’s jackpot will be €5,500.00 and the draw will take place in Paddy Lynch’s.
Annual Top 4 Lotto Ticket
Just a reminder that you can support the club’s Top 4 lotto by entering for either a 12 month, 6 month or a 3 month period. To play simply select your four numbers between 1 and 28 complete the form and you need never miss a draw again! Tickets cost €90 for the 12 month option, so there is a great incentive to play. The annual ticket holders had a great run during last year’s lotto draws and we encourage all of our ex members and community to play and support the club’s Top 4 lotto. Your continued support is always much appreciated and we wish you good luck in future draws.
The success of the club is built on the willingness of people to become involved. We are always on the lookout for juvenile managers & coaches to help out with our underage teams. The club simply cannot operate without plenty of help and we are appealing to people especially parents to volunteer their services to help out with our juvenile teams. You do not have to be an expert and you will be instructed by an experienced coach, but please come forward and volunteer. You may be able to spare one hour on a Saturday morning or one evening per week to supervise at training sessions, or maybe at a game. Whatever you can do please do come forward and offer your help as we need as many people as possible. You never know you may enjoy it and your children will certainly benefit from it.
Club membership is now due once again and can be paid to our newly elected club Registrar Pat Brannigan. With the new football season approaching ALL players should pay their membership as soon as possible otherwise you will not be covered under the GAA insurance scheme.
On behalf of the club I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the McPhillips family on the recent death of Francie Joe McPhillips. Ar dheis De go raibh anam dillis.
