Most of us would love a chance to go on a good auld trip with our club colleagues, especially now with the continuous talk of recession, bad weather, and the credit crunch really starting to bite. Indeed the further away and more exotic, the better. And if it was free, then happy days.
Portumna GAA club has that opportunity and it needs your help and support.
It was recently nominated in the Best Club under the sun competition run by Etihad Airlines - sponsors of the All-Ireland hurling championship.
The winning prize is a four day training camp in Abu Dhabi under the guidance of DJ Carey and Nicky English, not that Portumna need any guidance from anyone on how to win national titles.
To win the trip the club needs you to go on line and vote for it at www.etihadgaa.ie/vote
Most of the other clubs competing in the Galway county championship should support this venture and hope that a few of the Port lads stay over in Abu Dhabi for a few months. Just click on Portumna, enter your name and email address, and the next thing you know Joe Canning could be wearing new headgear in the 2009 All-Ireland championship.
