For your interest I’m including some recent Empire Table Tennis Club news mostly copied from the newsletter that was recently emailed out (the full newsletter is here). Check out all the photos of Depak coaching in there too!

Movie Fundraiser

When: Tuesday 24th April, Light House Cinema, Petone at 8.00 pm (nibbles from 7.30)

ALERT: Empire Club Fundraiser – fancy a night out to see a cool romantic comedy and help Empire raise some money for their special building projects? The movie is Salmon fishing in the Yemen which sure sounds like something different! Check out a review.

A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realise a sheik’s vision of bringing the
sport of fly-fishing to the desert and embarks on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the
impossible possible.
    Starring Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Supper will be provided from 7.30 pm (movie @ 8pm) at the Light House, Petone. Tuesday 24th April.

Contact: Maggie 5899 140 (home) or 5704 820 (work) or maggie.dyer [at] paradise.net.nz to get your tickets ($20). Open to all.
