This season marks our 50th Anniversary and our first major event will be the SW Vets tournament (9th Nov, 10 am to 6pm at the Riverside LC, Exeter) followed by an evening celebration at the Mill on the Exe, Exeter (ground Floor function room).

The evening event will be split into two, both events will have access to the SWVA@50 set of displays, slide show plus a selection of food. The function room has its own bar and services, come along, feel free to stay for both events, subsidised tickets are required (so we can confirm numbers with the caterers).

Over 90 tickets sold todate, the venue has now given us until the 1st Nov to order the food, hence:

### Only a few tickets left for the 50th Anniversary buffet, if you still need one, please email (update 5th Nov) ###
