Apostrofly

Regular readers will be familiar with this column's contempt for the apostrofly, an apostrophe caused by a fly in the printing press and not grammar. However missing apostrophes are harder to blame on loose insect culling at the presses and the evidence points to them being more to do with human error.

So, thanks to Richard for this, seen over the kids' rugby training ground last Saturday:

BEGINNERS CLASSE'S

Anyone want to have a go at what it means, if we treat it as written as intended?

Dunno if that helps narrow it down.

I share your frustration, as documented at http://mikepeat.blogspot.com/2006/11/temporary-apostrophe-misuse-apology.html but this one defeats me. Who is Classe, and why does he/she have beginners, and what are they starting? Is there a child protection policy, have they done a risk assessment, or are they all consenting adults?
