The Club is please to announce that an extra hour of training time on Wednesday evenings at Copleston has been secured for the 2009-10 season (starting 2nd Sept)

 Ladies training is from 7.00 – 8.30pm

 Mens training is from 8.30pm – 10.00pm


It has been club policy to book the extra hour, if at all possible, and this has become available and returns us to the training time that we had for many years at Copleston.

Calling all members with nothing to do August Bank Holiday (2009)...

Tour to Barnstaple? - Aug Bank Holiday 2009

Why not join the Mighty Mallards on tour in the lovely North Devon town of Barnstaple?

Arrive Friday set up camp, have a "few" beers, followed by a choice of Indian or Chinese, both less than 100yds away or cook on site.  Perhaps a pleasant stroll down the river Taw or visit the town itself, even have a "few" more beers! Or check out the disco and entertainment provided in the sports hall. 

There are three tournaments, Men's, Mixed  and Ladies

The hockey, on grass and astro, starts Saturday morning and goes on all day 'til about 5pm. There is a themed disco Saturday evening with Fancy Dress optional and even dress optional from some reports!  The local pub serving good ale is less than 100yds away too! (Next door to the Chinese and Indian retail outlets)

Hockey resumes on Sunday am, with semi finals and finals around tea time.  Trophies are presented, and then you can leave or stay until Monday, which will mean another round of beers no doubt!

Last year this all came to the sum of £50 (excluding Beer and Curry money but we did have egg and bacon rolls served first thing by a club supporter) and included the tour shirt and socks, sombrero and maracas!  Even the toilets were cleaned out regularly as well!  What could be better as the English Summer wanes ......

 If interested please reply to Dave Charles The tournament is run by North Devon Hockey Club and it will be the 25th in 2009.

 Thanks, Dave
