Also, if there is anyone ‘out there’ who has an interest in / experience with organizing dart tournaments I would greatly appreciate some help.

Please watch for the calendar of events sent via email and as always, thank you for supporting your Club; and enjoy what is left of summer !

New Floors

Hey everyone, thanks for your patience and cooperation. The floors have all been stripped and a brand new coat of wax has been added. The floors are gleaming right now.

FF Jan 30_2015This Friday night the Mud River Rockers are playing at our venue. All you dancers get out on these new floors and dance up a storm. The music will be rockin’! The boys play great tunes. Come and enjoy a great evening.

Don’t forget this is Food Friday. Cost for the Prime Rib meal is only $12.00. Support for these nights has been great. Let’s keep ’em comin’. Should be a great time of food, fun, friendship and frivolity. See you there!

Karaoke Night at the Club

Susanne & Vinnie were back to The Moncton Press Club this past Friday, Jan 16, with their brand of Karaoke.

Karaoke Jan 16

The crowd was about 40 people. Not large but very enthusiastic. Participation from those in attendance as performers was stellar. Vinnie provided us with some light comedy and on going patter between performers and Susanne made cuing up the tunes look easy. As a performer herself, Susanne certainly sings with a very beautiful voice. Vinnie is not bad either; just not as pretty but his hat fits well.

It was also Food Friday and the staff served up some very delicious plates of pork chops with potatoe and carrots. Well attended and well received. I don’t think there was a clean table in the place until later.  A meal that only cost $8.00 for which you would have paid a minimum of $14.00 anywhere else in town. You owe it to yourself to check out these Food Friday events if you haven’t been coming out.

See you next time. Watch our Calendar and Weekly Feature for announcements.

Comedy Night & Girls Soccer Success

Laugh until you have tears in your eyes.
Comedic Relief

Oops…I happened to drop into The Moncton Press Club Thursday evening, August 28th, and realized I had completely forgotten about a very special event that was taking place here. Duh me! Tonight was the Comedy Show to benefit the Under 18 Women’s Soccer team attending the National Championship in Surrey, BC. Double Duh!!

As luck would have it I arrived at the show which was at least half way along.

Realizing what was going on I quickly saddled up to the bar, ordered a drink, and began to listen. Even more amazing to me was the comedian performing at the very moment I arrived, Roger LeBlanc. For those of you who know Roger you know he is the same Roger who enjoys setting records with his 4 Wheeler tricks. Well blow my socks off I have known Roger for a number of years when we both shared an interest in wedding photography. I never realized he was a comedian…oh I knew he enjoyed a joke and a good laugh. But he is very funny and the audience really enjoyed his humour. Following Roger the headliner was center stage, James Mullinger, recently moved from the UK to reside now in Saint John. If you have not seen or heard him before you owe it to yourself to get to one of his shows; he is a very funny man and a Brit at that.

The audience was treated to a wonderful evening of great comedy. Although I have not mentioned the other comedians as I did not arrive in time to hear them I understand they were equally entertaining. Just so you know the other comedians were: Geoff Hendry, Scott Compagna, Glen K. Amo, Martin Saulnier, and Marcel Richard. Where else could you go and get to listen to 7 funny, funny comics for $10.00.

Make sure you check our monthly calendar for our expanding lineup of events and activities.

Busy Night at the Club

Attended The Moncton Press Club last night. That would be Aug 22, 2014 that is. Wow! This place was hopping with activity. A group had assembled from Moncton High School. Students, alumni, and teachers assembled together one last time to say goodbye to the stalwart and hallowed halls of the old school as it has been decommission in favour of new school being built out in the Royal Oaks area.

Then another group of supporters and volunteers where meeting in the Small Lounge from the Make A Wish Foundation.

The Moncton Mature Singles 55+ were holding their biweekly meeting at the Club last night too. This group is open to any single men or women 55 years of age or older. Great opportunity to get out and meet new friends. Who knows, might even find someone to share the future with too.

Of course last night was BBQ night. The hamburgers and sausages were flying off the grill into the hands of those in attendance. Everyone seemed to be really enjoying the informal repast. Add to that the musical guests Luc and Justin playing some very sweet sounds with a blues and jazz flavour just made the whole evening fantastic.

 

But wait, there is even more. This weekend The Moncton Air Show is on and a few of the planes and pilots provide an aerial demonstration right behind the Club over the waterfront of the Petitcodiac. This was amazing and thrilling.

I finished the evening off with a few dances and then made the trip home. What a night! What a great sleep I had too!!

Hope to see you at our next event. Keep checking our calendar for updates.

Volunteers for Entertainment Committee
Looking for volunteers
To Everyone,

As the new Entertainment Chair at The Moncton Press Club, I am reaching out to the Membership to form a Committee immediately to assist with various events that take place at the club.  This is a volunteer effort.
I am not looking for 100’s of names, but we need more than ME to organize, facilitate, and help the Bar Staff with the variety of events that are already planned at the Club, and to share ideas on what we do in the future.
Anyone interested can sign up on the sheet being posted tomorrow on the bulletin board, print your name & phone number, or contact me directly @ 506-863-8773 or by email at entertainment@themonctonpressclub.com.
I will schedule a meeting at the Club for all those interested in the very near future.
Many thanks for your continued support.
