Many thanks to all those who attended the Big Sports and Fun day in the Banks yesterday (19/08/12). A huge thank you to all those who helped make it a great day.Well over €2,000 was raised for the upcoming floodlight , changing room development and ongoing coaching and development work with a series of great events from Hammering the nail, washing machine challenge, Poc Fada, Kick Fada, Chicken poo,Bouncy Castles, Cycling etc.
Donald had a club gear retail unit which did great trade pulling in the euros for underage funds, the ladies had buns cakes and tea and worked hard throughout, Kevin White had the dartboard challenge, JC had his roaster primed and Club members and their families were out in numbers having the craic and throwing in their support.
Stall and event of the day had to be Nicole and Brian's Bondi Beach Burger Bar Bonanza which sold out of both Hot Dogs and their hand made gourmet burgers made of corn and hops fed prime beef of Doire na Mainsire steak and Ballymanus Hot Dogs. This alone took in over €600 and the young Ranafast couple scooped best stall and best dressed on the day. Great work.
Overall a great day in the Banks and although the rain meant that the Chicken poo event was transferred indoors to the Excel arena and the Beach volleyball ladies match between Brazil and Bunaman was defered to next year ....it was a great days craic....Maith Sibh uilig.
