“Mid-Summer’s Night: Strictly Come (Irish) Dancing.”

The Social Committee’s big event of the Summer will be held in the clubhouse on Saturday 21 June 2014 at 8.00pm – Strictly Come Irish Dancing aka St. John’s Ballinteer! We are looking for 8 (adult) volunteers who will compete with each other on the night. Each volunteer will have a mentoring session (in Irish dancing) once a week in the four week period running up to the event with the grand unveiling of their talents on the night itself. So if you have a friend who has a secret passion for Riverdance, nominate them! Or if that passion belongs to you, then nominate yourself! We are looking for volunteers from across the board, from the players, to the mentors, to the parents. So all you dark horses out there come forth from the shadows and step into the spotlight. 

We ask that volunteers register with socialcommitteebsj@gmail.com no later than Friday, 23 April 2014 when a draw will take place to select the "lucky" eight contestants.
