Last night was our annual pre-season social event – and what a success it was!
First on the agenda: kayaking! We’d been threatened with rain and 40mph winds by the good people at the BBC, but it actually turned out to be a very mild evening on the Colwyn Bay coast.
A quick shout out needed here for Colwyn Bay Watersports (www.colwynbaywatersports.co.uk), who provided us with an excellent session of sea kayaking. We encourage all the locals to get down to Porth Eirias and give it a go – last night’s participants had great fun!
For those that wanted to remain dry for the evening, there was a treasure hunt, which had a whopping jackpot of £10 cash for the winners. After much anticipation, the winning team was revealed. Well done to Summer Sunshine!
With bodies absolutely exhausted from the activities, everyone sat back and enjoyed the BBQ, lovingly tended to by Richard, who did a sterling job.
Once our bellies were full of burgers and hot dogs – which came with every type of sauce and relish imaginable – we dug into pud. A big thank you to Gem’s Cakes (www.gemscakes.com) for the beautiful and delicious netball-themed cake. We may have set a world record for the time taken to demolish it!
Not only did everyone have a great night, but we also made a profit of approx. £150!
The funds will be put straight back into Colwyn Netball Club and put towards advanced training sessions with our new coach, Heidi Bakewell.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to everyone that turned out last night, whether you’re a committee member, player, family member, or friend. We appreciate your support and hope to see you again at training/matches throughout the season.
