Club Notes 16th November

 “Hunt for the Rock Hunk”

OMG, what a crazy, crazy night! It is not often that I am stuck for words but I am struggling to find words to describe such a wonderful night’s entertainment last Friday night, it was quite simply AWESOME. You can forget about the X Factor, you can forget about I’m a celebrity… and all the other rubbish reality TV shows because what we experienced was simply out of this world. The atmosphere was electric and all twelve candidates were incredible as they gave the large crowd plenty of excitement and craic as they battled it out to become the first ever “Rock Hunk”.  It was seriously without doubt the best night I’ve seen in a long time and probably ever will see. We had everything from singers, poets, rock stars, actors, heavy metal guitarists, comedians and strippers which created an absolutely fabulous night. After all the candidates performed it was announced that Cathal “The Rocker” Sheridan was the official “Rock Hunk” for 2010 and he now goes forward to represent the club at the county final which takes place on Saturday 11th December. After the presentation I spoke to a somewhat stunned Cathal and he stated “he was shocked but very delighted with the award”. He said “the past couple of weeks have been hectic and he hoped that he entertained the crowd”. He also thanked his escorts Claire & Manta and his backroom team for their input. Many thanks to all that attended on the night and a big thank you to all the hunks, their escorts and everyone who helped to prepare the hall for the event. Special thanks to our master of ceremonies Adrian Logan who did an excellent job interviewing all the hunks and the escorts and of course to PAP promotions. Please log onto www.rockcorrygaa.ie for a selection of photos taken on the night. If you missed this event you might want to make a mental note not to miss next year’s but the DVD will be out for hopefully before Christmas so please get in touch with me if you would like to get a copy.
