Calendar un­der way as Se­andúns kick off

Irish Examiner - Farming - - MACRA -

The 2017-2018 Macra calendar will get un­der way this week as the Se­andún re­gional com­pe­ti­tions kick off. To­mor­row night, the Se­andún bowl­ing fi­nal will take place at Leisure­plex in Cork City at 9pm.

Com­pet­i­tive teams from the dif­fer­ent clubs in the re­gion will con­sist of three men and three women who will aim to get the high­est score for the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent Se­andún at the na­tional bowl­ing finals next month. How­ever, the night will also serve as a so­cial night where cur­rent and prospec­tive Se­andún Macra mem­bers are in­vited to part-take in non­com­pet­i­tive bowl­ing teams. This bowl­ing night at the start of the Macra year is al­ways a great so­cial and sport­ing oc­ca­sion and all are wel­come to come along. Fol­low­ing on from that, the Se­andún fi­nal of Ques­tion Time will take place on Sun­day at The Hunts­man, Bel­go­oly with sign-in from 8.20pm to 8.40pm.

The week­end will also see of­fi­cers from the re­gion trav­el­ling to Athlone for of­fi­cer train­ing which is run by Macra’a na­tional of­fice and which will pre­pare in­di­vid­u­als for their re­spec­tive of­fi­cer roles within the re­gion. Fol­low­ing train­ing on the Satur­day, there will be a for­mal ban­quet where the Na­tional Lead­er­ship Awards will be pre­sented.

The Lead­er­ship Dis­tinc­tion Awards are pre­sented each year to of­fi­cers who have ex­celled in their roles in their re­spec­tive re­gion or county over the pre­vi­ous year. Se­andún has five of­fi­cers in the run­ning and hopes are high that the sil­ver­ware will re­turn to the re­gion.
