Junior Carnival 3 – Normanville – 11th February
Our 3rd Junior Carnival for 2018 is located at Normanville on 11th of February. The preliminary event schedule has been released and is provided below for your information.

We will need to provide our own water cover for this training so any qualified Parents or Siblings that can help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

In addition Semaphore is also required to provide 5 Officials for this carnival so anyone able to help in this regard please contact Junior Convener, Bruce Moseley 0428 580 507.
***Change to Dinner Saturday***
I have enough people interested to arrange a booking for Dinner on the Saturday Night prior to the carnival. We have however been contacted by the Normanville SLSC who will have their bistro open on Friday and Saturday Night. I intend to book our dinner at their club rather that the Normanville Pub, that is after some due diligence on their capacity or unless there is a huge vote against it. A menu will be available shortly.
