BISSA is proud to announce details of its annual dinner. The dinner will be held at the same venue as last year, the wonderful ‘Lakeside Restaurant and Bar’ at the Ponderosa Therapeutic Centre, Heckmondike. The date for your diary is Friday 11th June 2010 with the evening starting from 19:30.
Speaker for the evening is Roy Dickinson, a proud Loiner, Roy supposedly asked Leeds for a trial when he was 12 before becoming a 17 year old debutant in 1974. A year later he was starring in a memorable, against the odds, Premiership Final victory over St Helens as part of one of the youngest front rows ever put out by the club in a major game. Never anything other than totally committed, he appeared in six major Finals for his hometown club. Roy made 303 appearances for Leeds and scored 64 points.
Karl Kirkpatrick is the compere for the evening, Karl controversially quit Rugby League in 2007. He was a referee at the highest level for 14 years and has controlled both Challenge Cup and Super League Grand Finals. He is still a well known face in the game and has been involved with the Steve Prescot Foundation and numerous players testimonials and junior rugby.
Tickets are priced at £30pp or a table of 10 for £275, no increase on last years prices.
Tickets can be purchased from outside the ‘Dog House’ on matchdays, from BISSA committee members and from the BISSA website here.
