Will She or Wont She???????

Zoe Hutcheson, who has been chosen to represent Scotland in the teams, is doing a sponsored silence on Saturday 12th February in aid of gathering funds for the GTF World Championships.
Texting, e mailing, twittering, sign language, head nodding, smoke signals, Facebook, MSN and any form of communication is forbidden and my money is on Zoe to complete the 12 hours with flying colours.
Please give her all your encouragement and as much money as you can afford. Anyone trying to make her talk is getting millions of pressups. Except me of course.
I've been on a sponsored weight loss since the 17th January and I have upto now lost 12 1/2 lbs. No bad eh. I'm wearing away to a mountain. Have to run around in the shower to get wet and dodging cundies. Haha the old jokes are the best. All donations would be greatly appreciated.
Jim Prevost is raffling a Rangers jersey signed by Alex Ferguson or is it McLeish....ask Jim. He's also looking for volunteers to join in a sponsored bike run from Dundee to Arbroath. Don't be shy, lets go for it.

Regional Training

Regional training will be in Glasgow this weekend, for all Blackbelts, especially those who have been picked for the teams, all other Grades are very welcome to attend too.

The venue is...Whitecrook Rugby Club, Dean Street, Clydebank, Dunbartonshire, G81 1RH.

We will be car sharing and leaving Dundee approx 08.30am as training commences at 10.30am.

Sorry for the close proximity of the last 3 training sessions. This was unavoidable and normal fortnightly training will resume after this weekend, however training sessions will be stepped up as we get nearer to the World Championships.

I need to know if you are going asap, thanks.

Mr. Cahill
