MARK YOUR CALEDAR! - Upcoming Events

NEW!  The 2nd Annual Smygus Dyngus Day will be held on April 2, 2018!  Yes, It IS the day after Easter and is considered one of many endearing traditions in Polish customs.  Events are still in the works, but plans are to be better than the original.

 NEW!  Good news - The Council 21 sponsored soccer team, Team Polska, resumed activity in January, and again in Canton, and, as always, are looking for a few good men.  Alas, they lost their first two games, both by a score of 1-0.  Recently, Team Polska had a single elimination tournament amongst team members and friends in the Lounge.  Each player created their own team using FIFA 18, the latest soccer simulation video game.  Eight players contended, but, in the finale Daniel Stanisławski defeated Grzegorz Warenda by a score of 4-1!   If you are interested in playing real soccer, contact Daniel Stanisławski.   Another tournament is in the works.  The pencil-date is February and probably a Saturday. Daniel is the contact for this event also.
