As you are all aware the closing date for the above gala is Sunday 23rd December 2012. I would normally be at All Seasons between 6 and 8pm to collect the forms however due to the early closure of the centre at 6pm I will be there between 5.30 and 6pm. If you have any queries could you e-mail me if possible rather than waiting until Sunday.
I will not be returning to the centre after this date therefore please ensure your forms are in the postbox before 6pm and fully completed with times otherwise they will NOT be submitted. Entries are to be sent off immediately due to the xmas period. May I suggest you submit them at a training session during the week to save yourself an extra trip.
