Our Vhi GAA Cul camps have commenced last week with camps in Manorhamilton, Ck on Shannon and Aughawillan. The weather, while very poor at times failed to spoil the fun and enjoyment for all attending. We would ask parents of all children who attended our camp in Aughawillan to check their child’s kit bag, as a Manchester United jersey got misplaced and must be in the bottom of some bag. Finding this jersey would make a very good week even better for one little boy. Next weeks camps will be held in Aughavas, Dromahair and Gortletteragh. Parents are reminded that they can still register for the camps but certain kit sizes are running out of stock so please don’t leave it till the last minute and be dissapointed.

[b]Vhi Cul Camps[/b]
The following is a list of our remaining Vhi Cul camps for this year.
July 16th 20th Aughavas, Gortletteragh and Dromahair
July 23rd 27th Fenagh, Drumkeerin and Ck-on-Shannon.

Congrats to Karl Mallon from Bornacoola who was the winner of the free place in last weeks Observer competition. Karl will be attending our camp in Mohill. As our competition has now concluded we would like to thank John Connolly and the Leitrim Observer for running the competition on our behalf. John Mc Keon and Sinead Brennan will be our Vhi Cul camp ambassadors for 2007 and along with other members of our County teams will visit the camps to meet the children and have a chat. A surprise visitor at last weeks camp in Aughawillan was Mayo forward Andy Moran who called in for a chat, singed jerseys, hands, knees etc, and still had time to kick a few balls over the bar.
