Want to do some volunteering?

I've just returned home after spending a few great weeks in Buenos Aires where I also spent some time at the club. If you're thinking of doing a spot of volunteering, I can recommend a visit. Here we are messing about with paint and attempting to make bracelets out of pasta.
It doesn't matter what your age or background is or how long you plan to stay in town, you're sure to be able to contribute something. There's always some activity going on, but new ideas are always appreciated. The folks there will make you very welcome - even if your Spanish is as bad as mine was!

Quiz Night!


We are holding the first ever Quiz Night on Sunday 15th November in aid of the Union!

For those of you not familiar with a Pub Quiz / Quiz Night it works like this:

- You arrive wth your friends and form teams of up to six people - each team has their own table.

- Each person in the team pays 20 pesos - this money goes straight to the Union!
- There are 4 rounds of 10 questions - mainly general knowledge, but some music and picture questions
- The questions are read out, and your team writes your answers down
- At the end of each round, you hand your paper in, it is marked and the scores so far are announced
- The team with the most points at the end of the 4 rounds is the winner!

So, please come and bring as many of your friends as possible!! Quizzes are a lot of fun, there is no pressure and it doesn't matter how well or how badly you do - the main thing is to eat and drink lots to support the bar (who are letting us hold the quiz there for free) and show your support for Union de los Pibes!!!
