Ok, so it's the Halloween Party next weekend (hope you've all been busy selling tickets!) and we're going for a "Disney theme with a halloween twist"... there's loads of options if you look on ebay and also some great outfits on www.wonderlandparty.co.uk, or if you fancy making your own here's a few ideas...
Cinderella, Jasmine (Aladdin), Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Snow White, Beauty & The Beast, Mulan, Minnie Mouse, Sleeping Beauty, Fiona/ Shrek, Cruella Devil, Jessie (Toy Story), Snow White and many many more, or you can obviously do your own thing if you don't fancy doing Disney - can't wait to see all the outfits!!
The Railway are once again hosting a Halloween Fancy Dress Party, with proceeds to be shared between 3 local sprorts clubs; Liskeard Netball Club, Liskeard Football Club and Liskeard-Looe RFC.
Tickets are £5 each. The more we sell, the more the club benefits.
It's always a great night, with prizes for the best fancy dress, so get planning and get selling girls!

Now that you all know the teams for the coming season, if you would like to be considered as a Captain please let Lucy know before Tuesday. Each player will then be given the opportunity to vote on their preferred captain, from those who have volunteered, within their team. As a Captain there are various duties you will need to carry out, including confirming players and umpires, liasing with the Treasurer with regard to away match fees and fuel, leading your team and having a sound knowledge of the rules should there be a dispute during a match. If you would like to see the full list of duties, please contact Holly before putting yourself forward.
We have a couple of great fundraisers coming up which we need your help with:
Barn Dance - Saturday 1st October @ The Public Hall, Liskeard. Tickets are £10 each or 4 for £30 (children £3.50). All proceeds go to Macmillian Cancer Support
Halloween Party - Saturday 29th October @ The Railway, Liskeard. Tickets are £5 each. As well as being a fantastic night out, this is a great opportunity to raise some much needed funds with all proceeds from ticket sales going to the club, so if you are interested or know anyone who might be please speak to Amie or Kerry.
We will be training twice a week through September, Tuesdays AND Thursdays, starting from the 6th.

If you're having withdrawl symptoms now that the netball season has finished, don't forget rounders is now on every Thursday (7pm on the school field).
Don't worry if you haven't played in a while - or ever - it's just a bit of fun (and great fitness, as my aching muscles every Friday will confirm).
Keep an eye on the website and facebook page for updates and venue changes, and if the weather's a bit dodgy we'll confirm if it's still going ahead by 5pm.
Hopefully see you all there tomorrow - fingers crossed for sunshine!

Matches are played on Wednesday evenings (every fortnight) at either 7pm or 8pm, fixtures are all on the "summer League" tab so please let Emma Dalton know which you can / can't play.
There will also be the opportunity of doing a bit of umpiring, so for those of you who are looking to be tested (or for those who would just like to improve) it would be a good chance for you to get in a bit of practise before the start of next season!

20.04.10. IMPORTANT - Next Season
Further to the committee meeting last week, we would like to make all Club members aware of the situation for next season.
You were all advised in February that many of the existing committee had given prior notice of stepping down from their various posts; however we are disappointed to advise that nobody has come forward to take on a role. The bottom line is that with no committee there will be no club next year.
The vacant posts are Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. Sophie, Sarah and Lucy will continue to be on-hand to support the person in their role, so please do not feel you will be left on your own from the start. The committee would like to welcome any new views so please have a think whether you, your partner, Mum or Dad would be able to help and support the club. If you are interested and would like some more information, please speak to one of us.
Our AGM is scheduled for Tuesday 4th May (time and venue to be confirmed) and it is at this meeting that we will appoint the new committee. Therefore, if you would like to put yourself forward, please speak to Sarah by the 29th April.
09.04.10. End of Season Do
The end of the season is fast approaching, and we all know what that means...... PARTY!!! It's always pretty impossible to find a date when EVERYONE can be there for the end of season do, but if you could all please let me know if there are any dates in May (or early June) that you absolutely can not do, then we can try to arrange it so that as many people as possible can make it. Bit late on the old organising this year, so asap please! Thanks. Holly
24.02.10. To All Members (and anyone else who would like to get involved)
Something for you to think about for next season.... Following the committee meeting last night, it has been confirmed that there will be openings for the following positions within the committee:Chairperson Treasurer Secretary
We will be putting this to the club at our AGM, but in the meantime please have a think about how you would like to get involved! If you have any questions, or would like a bit more information then please speak to one of the committee members.
