Please find below the draw for Willowfest.....
Yes, that's right, we are in CUP GRADE....!!?!! The top grade......!!! It
will be a great experience for us all to play at this level, however, there
is only Cup grade and A-grade this year, so the competition may be a little
weaker than normal....(so we might win a couple of games) Ah well, lets
ava crack at 'em anyway and try and win some spondoola...... (1st - $5000,
2nd - $2000, 3rd - $1000)
And the girls are guranteed at least $500 (2nd place), cos there's only 2
teams, and the entrance fee has been reduced to $300 too, so they are
basically handing us money... If the girls win, (which they will),then
$1000 hops on board....
Have a good'n.... Merry Xmas
REMINDER: XMAS PARTY, 15/12/2001 from 6pm, ECR See everyone there
