Start of Season Dinner – 24th March 2012

To celebrate our start of season (did it ever end??), we would like to invite you to a dinner party on the 24th March 2012…

The dinner will be €30 per head and the venue Isaacs on McCurtain St in Cork and you can sign up on Active Global at this link (Please note, beverages are not included in the price) :

If you haven’t renewed your club membership, you have an opportunity to do so by selecting the 2nd category.
If you are bringing your partner, select a second participant before you pay.
Please bear with the system on the qualification and waiver – we don’t expect the dinner to be a dangerous sport 🙂

And of course, it wouldn’t be the same without a swim so we are planning to swim in Sandycove @ 4 pm that day. Do come along, it will a fun day!

I have included the menu below:
