Dragons Weekly Bulletin – 3rd March 2010


A quiet week this week for the club, so a shorter (but sweeter!) email.

A big thank you to everyone for meeting the deadline for the deposits for the Edinburgh trip. You have all made Dave Keith a very happy man!! Not long to go until the club undertakes its furthest away trip to date and a lot of organisation is going on behind the scenes for this. So another huge thank you to Murray Harvey for all the work put in over this weekend in particular.

There are still a few people who are yet to book their hotels for Edinburgh. Please make sure you do this ASAP. Contact Muzz for further details ( afm11s@cardiffdragonsfc.co.uk or 07877 492262 )

A new member has joined the club the week. A big welcome to Chris Fox. As always invite new addition to our little family, your friends, family random people etc. Its great to see the club go from strength to strength with every new addition to our little family.
