Fw: Bowling Social 28/01/2018

Good evening all,


I hope you have all had a good Christmas and New Year. I'm just writing a quick reminder about the bowling social that I briefly mentioned before Christmas. All the details are in the e-mail I wrote below.


As mentioned already, places are strictly limited to 12 people. The following people have already responded to me that they are coming:


  1. (Myself)
  2. Maggie
  3. Hannah
  4. Sam
  5. Scott 
  6. Celine
  7. Katrina
  8. James Sharp


So as it stands, there are 4 spaces left. Therefore do be quick in responding if you want to come. For those who are coming, we will be meeting at 10.45 outside the Virgin Money bank at Fargate in the city center and we'll go for lunch afterwards somewhere.

On another note, I will be slowly transitioning the e-mails I send regarding socials to a different address in the near future, so do look out for that.

James

Good morning all,


Now that we are done with the club Christmas dinner, I am in the process of organising our next social.


I have booked for us to go bowling on Sunday 28th January from 11.00-13.00. We can also go out for food before and or/after the bowling. The location of the bowling alley is in the city center and costs should be less than £5 a person for the full 2 hours which you pay on the day (the exact cost will be determined by numbers at the social). Places for bowling are strictly limited to a maximum of 12 people so do let me know asap if you plan on coming along.


As the social is still ages away, I will send out another reminder about this nearer the time.


This is probably the last time you hear from me as the socials officer in 2017 so I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you all a good Christmas and new year.

Aikido Monthly Newsletter - December

Hello All,

I would like say thank you to everyone who managed to make it to the Leeds training and celebration, it was an amazing event and many people came from around the country. Thank you Leeds for hosting us and happy 10 year anniversary!

After discussion at the last general meeting, I would like to highlight the need for high grade Uke's (2nd Kyu and above) at future grading's, including the one on the 12th December 2017. If you are free please come and help those grading!

Normal training at the Sheffield dojo shall continue until the Friday 22rd December 2018, after which the dojo will be closed until the Wednesday 3rd January 2018.

Sadly, due to insufficient numbers, Hallam university sessions will be cancelled for the rest of the academic year. As a result, Hallam students are invited to train with the University of Sheffield students at their sessions for an additional £1.

Good afternoon,

Once again we are holding the dojo Christmas party at the Red Deer pub just off West Street. This will be from 19.30 on Wednesday 13th December and will immediately follow the usual santa-hat Christmas training tradition.

I am attaching a copy of the menu with this e-mail. Please take a look at it and let me know what menu items you would like. The Red Deer are offering a 3-course set menu priced at £20 per head for 2 courses, or £24 per head for 3 courses. The price includes decorations, Christmas crackers, a glass of Prosecco on arrival and coffee and mince pies after the meal.

If you are selecting 2 courses, please choose either a starter and a main, or a main and a dessert. I do recall the food portions being quite generous last year, so I would personally recommend choosing a 2-course rather than 3 if you are unsure. 

Deadline for giving me your food choice is Sunday 3rd December. I will be handing the choices to the Red Deer the next day. When giving me your food choice, please also give me a £10 deposit to confirm your place.

Please note that there is a 25 person limit for food. Whilst it is probably unlikely that all spaces will be filled, please try to be prompt in responding just in case.

Regards,
James
