As you may have been aware for the last 3 months the Club has been trialling the use of volunteers from our senior membership in assisting the bar staff on certain days over the winter months.
Due to the success of this trial the Club would now like to extend this method of assisting the operations of the bar for the remainder of the 2016/17 season.
For the past 17 weeks the following 14 members have voluntarily provided their services and the Club wishes to sincerely thank them for their contribution to the revenue generation of the bar area; Carmel and Mick Kenny, Karen and Chris Mahney, Steve Weir, Steve Sims, David McGrath, John Stevens, Neil Bissett, Meagan Tunney, Geoff Cole, Ian Robbins, Jeff Bampton and Tony Lloyd.
For the extension of this voluntary assistance to the bar to proceed with the associated cost savings we are seeking further nominations to lighten the load (which is not too onerous anyhow) of those members from the above list that are willing to continue in this capacity. In addition three further members had indicated their willingness to help. They are Todd Bampton, Andrew and Paul Spencer.
The use of our dedicated bar staff will continue as normal and the volunteers will be rostered in teams on occasions when only one paid staff member is engaged and there are no functions or events booked for that day.
The typical duties of the volunteer would not be primarily directed to customer service, but in returning glasses and bottles to the bar, possibly re-stocking fridges, helping move chairs, changing kegs, using the glasses dishwasher and helping to lock up at the end of the shift. On very limited occasions it may be necessary to assist behind the bar with the bar staff operating the tills. These duties would only need to be performed if the bar staff are under pressure and cannot undertake these tasks without disrupting customer service.
With the new developments planned for the Club in the not so distant future we hope, it is important for the Club to maximise our sources of revenue to help pay for these improvements in facilities.
Any senior member interested in being included on the Volunteer Bar Assistant Roster, including those mentioned above, should place their name on the list posted on the notice board over the next 14 days. We need approx 25 volunteers to make the rosters work efficiently.
For more information please contact Steve Weir.
In 2016/17 season we are very excited to have the canteen available. The hours of operation will be 1130-1245 with a reduced menu and after training 3pm – approx. 430pm. We will be running with a different special each week, so keep your eye out for our “Canteen Special” posts. Our first special will be cheese toasties for $1, help support the club and come in early for a cheese toastie.
Other menu items will include pies, pasties, sausage rolls and donuts from Semaphore Bakehouse, ham salad rolls, yoghurt and muesli, wedges, nachos, hot chips, drinks and chocolate bars.
It is always busy on the first week with all the new come and try nippers and the sign on desk busy with memberships making it the ideal time to get yourself and the kids a cheap, pre-training munchie.
Each week an age group will be rostered to help out in the canteen and Under 12’s are the first cab off the rank.
We now have some exciting positions to fill for the upcoming season
1 x Junior floor staff
1 x Qualified duty manager, RP badge is essential
1 x Bar staff
All positions are casual

The BOM is interested in trialling the use of volunteers from our Senior Membership in assisting the
bar staff on some days over the winter months.
Everyone would be aware of the excellent service provided by our dedicated bar staff over the years
and that over the winter period, particularly on most Saturdays and Sundays, the number of
customers is markedly reduced. The BOM is keen to trial the bar running with only one paid staff
member with back-up provided by volunteers if the bar gets busy on any of the Saturday or Sunday
shifts when there are no functions or events booked for that day.
The typical duties of the volunteer would not be primarily directed to customer service, but in
returning glasses and bottles to the bar, possibly re-stocking fridges, changing kegs and helping to
lock up at the end of the shift. On very limited occasions it may be necessary to assist behind the bar
with the bar staff operating the tills. These duties would only need to be performed if the bar staff
are under pressure and cannot undertake these tasks without disrupting customer service.
It is hope to get enough volunteers from our more regular bar visitors so that we can form a roster
with a number of volunteers rostered for each shift. This will allow these members to share these
duties and work out their shift requirements between themselves with a team leader appointed to
coordinate and liaise with the bar staff. It is envisaged that each volunteer team would not be
rostered more than once a month over this 4-5 month period. Similar to the patrol roster.
With the exiting news of finally receiving Planning Consent from Charles Stuart Council for our
upgrade planned for the Club , it is important for the Club to maximise our resources of revenue to
help pay for these improvements in facilities.
Any senior member interested in being included on the Volunteer Bar Assistant Roster should email
Steve Weir at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Steve on mobile 0401 122 336 for further
The aim is to get 12- 20 volunteers.
