Newsletter for 22/10/15

Final Thoughts

On the topic of Pool Parties I demand this be played on Saturday.

Anyone keen for a club secret santa event? I feel like Christmas will be here before we know it. Where does the time go?! Seriously, who is stealing it. I swear there was more. 

Fun Fact: in 1919, Dwight Eisenhower and the American Army tried to drive cross country. The first trip of it's kind (using motor vehicles) the intrepid Military men barely made it. As a result of this Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System when he became President. (source)
