Club Thangs.0

Well the 2014 race season is drawing to a close (and so is the summer by the look of things!), with only a few road races and local hill climb events still to go. The Club has grown in membership, (87 members to date) and has once again performed exceptionally well this year on both the local scene and further a field. The Clubs “Testers” have dominated the Gwynedd Cycling Association, and Mon Arfon League series of time trial events, both as a club and individuals.

A Christmas Buffet will be on offer at £12.00 per head which is an excellent price fair play to the Golf Club’s generosity. Anyone who has had any connection with the Golf Club will understand and know that the standard of catering there is second-to-none. Please put your names down quickly as the first 100 will be given priority.

There will also be a disco – specially requested by John Keightley, and the cost of this is included in the ticket price.
