Gothenburg GAA Newsletter September 2011

Hello all
just a quick mail to let you know what's happening in Gothenburg GAA circles this month.

Pan-Euro Championships Limerick Nov 5th
As per the EGM held last Friday evening , it was agreed that Gothenburg GAA will attend the last European tournament this year in Limerick. The following people have said they will attend provisionally:
Ladies: Catherine, Mia
Men: Niall, Declan, Billy, Kevin, Adrian Kelly, Eoin, Adrian Keogh
Awaiting confirmation or otherwise: David, Stephen, Brendan, Jakey
Please let me or Declan or Niall know whether you intend to travel or not as soon as you can.

It was agreed that everybody make their own way to Limerick as everyone has different travel plans.

Appreciate that its not easy to go at the best of times but in order to ease the burden, Gothenburg GAA will pay for accomodation for the weekend (Friday and Saturday night) and hopefully will be in a position to pay for the tournament fee as well.

Accomodation has been provisionally booked at the Travelodge Inn in Castletroy for the Friday and Saturday night. The tournament itself is being held at the UL complex with the finals being held at the Gaelic Grounds stadium.

We will resume training onThursday 22nd September.As the nights are closing in,we'll meet at 18:15 in Slottskogen (usual place). We'll have more physical than ballwork for the first few sessions and we'll need to do a couple of weekend ballwork sessions.

Social events
The first Gothenburg GAA Golf Classic is all set for Sunday 25th September. 16 players have signed up and we should be able to fill all our tee times. Everybody is welcome to come along for the day even if you dont play golf, we still need caddies. Its all a bit of fun. First tee-time is 12:20 in Lerjedalen Golf klubb in Gunnilse. If you need directions or bus times, just get in contact.

Table quiz - A table quiz is pencilled in for october to raise even more funds for our trip to Ireland. This time however, we need people to show up and bring others with them. We're in last chance saloon with the Dubliners due to bad turnouts for these events so it might be a case of getting money off people before the night itself.

Irish trad night - The long awaited trad music night is still being planned. Might be a christmas event now but we'll let you know.

Is mise le meas
