It will be taking place at The South Suburban Sports and Recreation Dome in Centennial, from Tuesday November 11 through Tuesday, Dec. 23. It will take place from 9 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Cost will be $40 for one sport, and $50 for two if you’re paying in advance. If not, it will cost $10 per week.

Got Old Equipment? Do you have old hurls, helmets, or footballs that you don’t want anymore? Do you have a hurl that’s the wrong size for you, or a helmet that doesn’t fit your gigantic head? Donate it to the Colorado College and University Gaelic Sports programs! They’re in need of equipment to help players learn the sports, and are hoping we can help. Contact Kim Tessean if you have anything you’d be willing to give.
Do you have an event or an update you want to go out to the club? We’ll get it into our weekly email that will go out every Tuesday (starting next week, since this week it’s going out on Thursday). If you have something you’d like us to include (social events, club events, fundraising opportunities, etc.) send it to Sam Westmoreland. In order to get your event into the newsletter, please get your information (date, time, location, what the event is) in to Sam by Monday night. If it’s not in by then, the info will be included in the following week’s email.
