I just wanted to remind everyone of the social event of the season taking place tomorrow night, Friday, November 24. The Silent Auction and Pub Night happens at Hudsons Canada’s Pub at South Edmonton Common, 2104 99 St NW, Edmonton.
The event starts at 6:00 and runs until 8:00, or until you have had enough fun. The focus of the evening is to get together with other parents and friends of the Thunderbirds Water Polo Club. Take the time to chat with the coaches, and get to know one another.
There will be about 20 items up for auction, from pairs of Oilers tickets, a chocolate basket, a movie night out package, hotel rooms and a flat screen TV. We will also be selling raffle tickets for the 50/50 draw as well as the ever popular liquor basket. Remember to use your tickets to bring along a friend. Also, you can redeem 1 of the $5 tickets per person for a $5 gift card to be used during the event, on Friday night.
The place should be lively with regular patrons taking in the 5:00 o’clock start to the Oilers vs Sabres game. And yes they do win from time to time.
Hope to see everyone tomorrow night.
