The Lounge
Phase 1 of the renovations is pretty much complete. We should get the 1/4 round done.
Phase 2 – bar and ceiling above the bar – the ceiling tiles contain asbestos, and cannot be got so it has been suggested to put up drywall above the bar. More on this later.

Help Needed on Sunday
There are loads of bags of cans to be returned. Can anyone help out this Sunday to bring them back & sort them? Talk to Ed.

Cans Outside
We got in some bother with the Legion about cans outside and a few other incidents. Please don’t take you beers downstairs in future.

Remembrance Day
No game that weekend. The Legion need people to show up at 10am at the Legion to help out with moving some stuff around. It’s the Legion’s biggest day, so come down to the Legion for a beer and help them out.

Legion Membership
We want all members of Scribes (especially the exec) to be members of the Legion. It only costs $40 a year. There are applications forms in the Legion, so on Saturday when we come back from Surrey, I will bring them upstairs and everyone can start filling them in.
