Gaffney st -Sydney road to Carr st (corner of old Jail) will be closed most of Saturday and Sunday .
If you are heading north along Sydney rd or from the West come to the club via the old Pentridge jail -O’Hea st. If heading towards the city turn at the Motel before Gaffney st (Carr street)
Saturday squad will commence at 11am so maybe leave home a little earlier to allow for traffic disruptions
Last night after 8-30pm -we only had 2 members playing at the club. tonight we are fully booked out and have turned a few people away so members be warned, not much spare room until 8-30pm.
Over 50 students playing Table Tennis at Coburg today. Not one student is a regular player here but 2 of the teachers are .
Sanjay brings his wife Dhara down to the club for the first time. We are a player short so Sanjay quickly offers Dhara as a fill in. She lasts at least one minute- Never played before -no idea of the rules- or how to hold a bat. Needless to say it was not long before she was back in the safety of the spectator area watching others play
After a long absence through illness we are proud to announce that Liao will be one of the coaches this week at Saturday coaching – He is highly regarded as a fine technician and was outstanding last time he joined our coaching ranks
Also coaching the Saturday squad this week is Luke Blythman who coached here a few years ago and was well liked by all. We will also have Earn the Train controlling the team., Maggie the Magnificent & the Duke of Bulgaria. our court 1 specialist.
11am to 1-30pm & only $12 pp..
Mr Luke B is the captain of the Gravy train team. He did not want to be blamed for not filling out the score sheet so he diligently & beautifully I may add, filled out the score sheet. Crossed every T. dotted every I. But we could not find the sheet ? Phil Smith was going to fill out a LOST FORM REPORT, but it was finally found. Apparently when your team looses, you don’t give a damn about handing the sheet in !
Jess Diep Capt of her team – also forgot to hand in the score sheet – as did Clinton ! –Better than being incorrectly filled in one guesses .
Luke Blythman and I will be representing Coburg at a 24 hour Ping pong a thon in Essendon, this coming Saturday. We will leave the club around 2-30pm and be back b y 4-30pm. We will be doing a demonstration then having a hit and talks with the people involved with this fund raiser for charity.
Talk to me if you would like to be involved
