What's Happening?

The home of Imp 19 is Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club  which lies in the Fylde & N. Lancashire Imp Club Area Centre. Event planning is well under way with much of the core team being drawn from the surrounding area centres of Pennine and Warrington. The Imp 19 Organising Team is meeting regularly and another great National weekend is on the cards!

Imps Urgently Required!

Preston Grasshoppers is a long established Rugby Club and offers substantial facilities, including catering and bar organisation. The Rugby Club is well accustomed to catering for busy events and Imp 19 visitors should be well catered for. Food will be available from Thursday onwards with enough liquid refreshment to satisfy the collective thirsts of all!

Outline of Main Events

Thursday - For the early arrivals this will be a quiet evening to settle in and recover from long journeys and perhaps catch up with other Impers.

Friday - Run out - yet to be finalised but may well finish in Blackpool which is about 15 minutes drive away. A Disco is planned for the evening.

Saturday - Another run out - this one is likely to involve some of the more scenic elements of the Lancashire fells. The evening will include the usual live entertainment with optional fancy dress - this year's theme is "Witches and Warlocks" - anything goes from costumes based on the local witches of Pendle to Harry Potter theme inspired outfits.

Sunday - "Show and Shine" - this will need no introduction to regular visitors. The day will conclude with the ever popular Quiz evening.

Monday - Time for the remaining Impers to set off home - please leave your pitches as tidy as possible - the team would like to keep up the Imp Club's excellent record of leaving the venue in as as good, if not better condition than before site set-up.

HAPPY IMPING! - the Imp 19 Organising Team is looking forward to welcoming you at Preston.
