All the news from round the club, weekly

With the fantasy hockey league tighter than ever, there are some important weekends coming up to build up points before the Christmas break! Don’t forget there are extra points awarded for umpiring games! Well done to the fantasy winners this month.
Jen who won manager of the month and Jason who won player of the month (he must have umpired ALOT of games!)

All the best to the u14s who start their league campaign this Sunday away to Enniscorthy.

The funny corner

To get everyone in the Christmas spirit a joke that hopefully you haven’t heard!
A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why," they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."
It’s even funnier after your 12th pint on the 12 pubs!

The Riddler

Last week’s answer below:
With 7 comrades proud I stand
Soon spreading out o'er all the land.
We have no fear; do not retreat
When face to face our twins we meet.
Answer: Pawns on a chessboard!

Keeping with the Christmas theme but moving away from the riddles - let’s see who can solve this weeks brain teaser:
Can you name the disguised Christmas song title-
‘The Apartment of Two Psychiatrists’
(This is not an anagram)
Hint: Extracts of the song in Home Alone

Good to have all the teams out representing again this weekend, lets keep moving up those leagues!

All the best,
