At the end of the season the team were reluctant to disband for the winter so several social events were organised to maintain the team spirit. These included a End of Season Bowling evening, a Christmas Social and a Historic Pub Crawl around Birmingham. The photos below show just some of the antics the bobcats’ got up to!
