We need you!
The club relies on volunteers, and volunteering for the Classic League is one of the easiest ways to put back into the club. All of the organisation for the event has been done already, it really is just your time from 6pm on a Wednesday evening we need; the signup rota and full instructions can be found here. And of course, not only do you get the participants’ undying gratitude, it gets you an entry into the prestigious Volunteer Raffle at the Christmas party!
