Adult Blitz. Our handball season kicked off with an adult Blitz last Saturday evening in the complex, it was a fun afternoon where 16 players took part in the event, after about 2 ½ hours of handball we had it whittled down to 2 finals, in the plate competition Gary Holahan of Tydavnet defeated Mickey Treanor(P) in the final, in the main final it was an all club affair as Christopher Mc Kenna(PJ) defeated Fergal O Neill, we would like to thank all that traveled to take part in our curtain raising event of the year, we would like to thank all “clubs” and individuals that donated to the cause that were not able to travel on the day for one reason or another, all monies collected will be going to the Truagh Special Needs & Autism Centre, anyone still wishing to donate can still do so for the next few days.
Juvenile Structures.  As from this Monday (Oct 15th) we have our juveniles broken up into groups going on their age groups, we will be keeping an eye on how it will go over the next few weeks as we might still have to shuffle some groups around on nights to facilitate as many juveniles as we possibly can, but we will be keeping all parents updated as we make changes, and also can any parents that have any concerns on timing issues or anything else please talk to the coach in charge.
Juvenile Blitz. The club will hopefully be holding a juvenile blitz on November the 3rd, it was originally penciled in for October the 27th  but due to unforeseen events the date had to be changed, this will be run off after the Halloween weekend so all players will have to participate with the “scariest” face painted possible, age group details in the coming weeks, for boys & girls.
Mono Furniture League.  We are ready to start sorting out the bones of the Mono League structure so anyone interested in playing in the league this year get your name in ASAP to either Brendy or Christopher PJ, if you are text about participation please respond with either a “yes or a “no”, “silence is not an answer” thank you, old and new welcome, also registration will have to be paid when the league commences, 40 Euro fee for the year.
Coaching Course. We are holding a coaching course for the development of coaching within the club, this open to anyone willing to learn a bit more about the game and the aspects of coaching our ancient code, this will take place on Saturday the 10th of November so would ask everyone to consider attending.
Table Quiz. We have our annual Table Quiz provisionally booked to take place in St.Mellans Complex on Friday night the 16th on November, more details closer to the time.
Croke Park Annual Draw 2019. The handball club have The Croke Park Annual Draw tickets in circulations now, at 10 euro each they are real bargain, all monies goes in to the club, thanks to everyone who have always and continue to support the club in anyway.
