Bev’s Hills – Week 18

HAPPY WEEK 18 EVERYONE! Only 3 weeks left until the end of term! And it’s also an important week because it is….

***PATRIOTS***
Boy oh boy do we have an amazing weekend planned! On Thursday we’re having a pre-patriots social, starting in Trev at 8pm with free entertainment courtesy of our Open Mic Night. We will then have Hustle Busses to take us straight to Hustle to celebrate the start of the competition in style!

Sporting events take place on Friday evening and all day Saturday, before pre-drinks and a night out in the Sugarhouse on Saturday night. You have the chance to get involved with a wide range of sports including dodgeball, rounders, ultimate frisbee, beer pong and even sports day activities – a full timetable is available on the Facebook event HERE

***SIGN UPS***
We want as many people to get involved as possible – you don’t have to have any previous experience in the sport to have a go! If you’re interested in taking part then you can put your name forward online HERE or on one of the sign up forms in Trev any time this week. Alternatively you can just turn up to any of the sporting events and get involved, although if we’re running short of places priority will be given to people who have signed up in advance 🙂

All participants will get a FREE PACKED LUNCH and a FREE WATER BOTTLE! (*until stocks run out)

Just as important as the participation is the support, so please please come down to any of the events you can to spectate and cheer on the college teams!
