Castlewellan GAC

November 8, 2018

* We are still collecting clothes in a drive to raise club funds. We have collected a considerable number of bags and we wish to thank those club members who have donated unneeded items thus far. We still need more of those clothes from members who may not have yet cleared out those unwanted items. Now that Christmas has come and gone we would be grateful if you could take another good rummage and see if there is anything you can donate to help us along.

* It is fantastic to see so many of our Minor Camogie players part of the Down Minor Camogie set up. This is a tribute to all those coaches and players who have put so much effort in. The Club is proud of their efforts. Training for those Castlewellan Camogs involved will continue in St Patricks High School Downpatrick at 1.30pm on Sunday.

* The indoor hurling will continue on Thursday nights in St Malachy’s Primary School in preparation for the upcoming Down Indoor Hurling League. Coaching will start at 6.15 pm for the Primary 2 to Primary 4 boys and the coaching for the Primary 5 boys and older will commence at 7.15pm. Indoor hurling gear is provided. Can we also ask that children do not wear black soled indoor shoes.

* The Down Under 12 indoor Hurling leagues began on Sunday past in Bangor. Although under strength the players made a good account of themselves against Ballycran and Keady. The league will continue again on Sunday. Players must bring their hurling stick, gear, water bottle, and snack. Player must meet at the club at 10.45am sharp.

* The Castlewellan GAC Running Club has recommenced their runs on Tuesday and Thursday Night. All runners should meet at the Club at 6.45pm to begin running at 7.00pm. This is open to all club members whether they be hurlers, footballers, camogs or members who just want to go for the run and the fun of it. This will be a great opportunity to supplement any training planned. Cairnsy was just saying what great shape he is in at the moment. Sounds like a challenge to me! Anybody wanting to accompany him on the run will be in the queue.

* Congratulations to those sisters in the club who had big birthdays last weekend. All I heard was that the numbers 5 and 6 were mentioned!
