CLASSICS CLUB 600 DRAWS 
Existing Classics Club 600 members have until next Tuesday, January 23rd to rejoin for the 2018 draws. After this date the Classics Club 600 Committee reserve the right to replace those who have not taken up the invitation to rejoin with names from the waiting list. Remember you can renew your membership online this year through the ICC website (up to midnight on Tuesday 23rd January) or in the normal way. Thank you to the 520+ members who have rejoined so far.
Whilst the committee love to see existing members rejoin, they do want to make it known that there is a long list of people anxious to become members. So, if anyone wishes to opt out or take a break for a year or two simply e-mail eugene@sportingpress.ie or ring Eugene @ 052 6188508.
