Re: Fencing Schedule for Pikeman's Pleasure
- At the risk of repeating myself... a reminder of our Canton's event this
weekend.. and Fencing!
*Pikeman's Pleasure XX
*Located at the North Monaghan Community Centre, 4 Needlers Lane,
Millbrook, Ontario L0A 1G0
Saturday June 5, 2010
Gates open at 10:00am until 11:00pm
The event will happen rain or shine. We have full use of the indoor
hockey rink surface that provides more than enough room for our use...
which, thinking back, was the field that I actually authorized upon a
few years ago. The prizes are done too... all made by me and, in my own
humble opinion, turned out very well.
My thanks for your kind consideration of our event.
