There will also be live music from Mickey & Charlie. The barbecue organisers have also hired a bigger marquee than last year so that any possible rain will not spoil the event. Admission is strictly restricted to over 18s.
The club’s weekly lotto will also take place at the barbecue, If the jackpot prize of €10,000 is not won then there will be a draw immediately afterwards for anyone who bought lotto tickets. €10,000 must go.

It’s important for club members to sell as many lottos this week as possible in order to make the draw a success. Please print and use the attached poster to highlight the event.
