Further to previous EGM and notifications, we are pleased to advise that the All Golds Cosmopolitan Club will be moving from their current premises at the Avondale Jockey Club to join us here on the 17th October 2017.
This is a major event for both clubs and we know that All Golds will be made to feel welcome as new members of the Avondale RSA. As many All Golds members are already known through the various sections, i.e. pool, darts etc this should assist with the transition.
There no doubt will be a period of adjustment and we ask that all members work together to achieve the maximum benefits of this amalgamation.
Please feel free to contact the Committee or Manager with any suggestions / issues.
