Newsletter - 25th November, 2012

Club membership fees for Thursday League adult players are £21 including St Faiths membership and non Thursday league adult players are £18 including St Faiths membership. Club membership fees for under 18's remain at £1 which is excellent value as the Club pays the affiliation fee to the English Petanque Association for them if required, as long as they participate in an Anglia Region event or above. The Club affiliates all members to the Norfolk County Association.

St Faiths Centre membership is due for renewal by 1st January 2013. Membership is £6 for an adult and under 16's are free. 16 and 17 year olds are £3.00. The St Faiths Centre imposes a £5 penalty (£2.50 for 16 and 17 year olds) if membership lapses so it is important that you return your application form complete with relevant fees at the earliest possible opportunity to enable me to forward these on.

Club members also participate in the City of Norwich Wednesday Morning League and the City of Norwich Winter League (alternate Sunday mornings). These teams are entered independently by club members and not the Committee. Teams are a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 players. If anyone would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Next year is the Club's 30th Anniversary and the Committee are planning our competitions to celebrate so watch this space!

Finally I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
