CYP Drinks are back Thursday 1st May!

This is a chance to catch up with fellow members and for new members to come along and see what CYP is all about.

We will also have a speaker to add a new dimension to these drinks. Come along and hear Andrew Harrison, Former Chief Operating Officer of Ngai Tahu holdings and current director of the Canterbury Rams basketball team speak about their mission to relaunch professional basketball in Christchurch. After three years of no NBL team in Christchurch and 6 years since the the Rams franchise was last on the scene the teams relaunch has been a success story. The Rams aim to revitalise Basketball in Christchurch with a commitment to the great community. Levering off their sponsors, the community (and indeed the Harrison family) the Rams start to the season has been a business success with their first two home games sold out and outselling their pre-season targets for season ticket memberships. They are performing beyond their expectations.

Drinks begin from 6pm, please arrive promptly to hear our speaker. There will be drinks specials ($2 off all house wine and beer) and some food provided.
