4. Notification System
Recently you were probably bombarded with messages regarding upcoming competitions from our automated calendar system.
We apologise for any defenestration this may have caused.
In an endeavour to streamline the process of notification we are moving to an automated service - in future, multiple daily notices will be compressed to one single email.

5. Club Fees
There are still a large number of club membership fees outstanding. Participants who have not paid by the final training session (2015.04.09) will be charged for the full term at the casual attendance rate of $15p/n.

Next term the FSA Schools Teams League starts again. 
Team registrations close at the end of week 4 in term 2, and matches start in week 6.

7. Club Closures
The club will be closed on Thursday the 26th. It's on the Calendar. 
Chill out, relax; have yourself a cocktail night or something.
Training resumes the following Thursday (2015.04.02) for the remaining 2 weeks of the term.
