New Members 2016 - Welcome on Fri 21st

posted Oct 15, 2016, 3:29 AM by Leaders Secretary

The leaders and members would like to thank those parents that attended the information night for new members, and the interest shown in the club. In particular, we'd like to thank those people that volunteered to be leaders - without leaders the club cannot operate.

We are happy to report that we were able to accommodate (just about) all of the new members who applied, and have perfectly filled the club to capacity. It does mean that, unfortunately, any late applicants we are currently unable to admit at this time. Although we do have their information, and should we lose some members over the next few months, we will contact anyone who is waitlisted to offer a place.

Opening for new members is Friday 21st October at 8:30pm, with the annual membership of €25 due. If a new member has a sibling in this or another Foroige club, the family membership is €35 (regardless of number of members).

The first disco of the club year is coming-up shortly - see Hallowe'en Disco - Oct 28th in Gort. Typically, we need permission slips a week ahead of an event (to reserve spaces and book bus capacity) but due to the timing this year, we will also take the forms from new members on the night of the disco. However, we will need the names of people going on Friday 21st. You can always find permission slips on this site, print them off, and bring them in...
