Still time to lend a hand and lighten the load of the dedicated volunteer crew

Thank you to all the selfless volunteers that have helped in the food tent/bbq/kitchen over the last 2 days at the Junior State Titles. Your contribution has been amazing. Thank you especially to those who don’t even have children competing this weekend but have donated their time, understanding that it is an all in Club event.

We have one day to go and if you have time free please pop up and grab some tongs or help serve.  Perhaps you have time in between your child’s events.  Every little bit helps and it will give those who are spending hours covering shifts an opportunity to have a break.

Let’s make this the best States and finish off with a bang! We will be in the tents from 5:30am Sunday morning.

Final call for Junior State Titles Volunteers

A reminder to all those who’ve signed up to assist with Junior State Titles this weekend, our first army of volunteers will be required Friday night during R & R events.

We are still seeking volunteers to help out on Saturday and Sunday, particularly during the hours of 12pm-4pm.  Many hands make light work as the saying goes!

Whether your children are competing or not over the weekend, the entire Club stands to benefit from the honour of holding this event.  Your support will be greatly appreciated.

 

Your chance to have a say on the Club Redevelopment

There are exciting times ahead for the Club.  We are progressing well through the various approval stages for our Club redevelopment and as the indicative start date of physical works is scheduled for January 2018, the detailed design phase of the project has begun.

The Club is seeking the input of interested members to provide ideas and suggestions on many aspects of the redevelopment to inform our final design.

A meeting for that purpose will be conducted by our project manager, John Kantilaftas on Sunday the 5th of March at 3:00pm at the club.

Information gathered at the meeting will be provided to the architects to be considered as part of their design concept development.

We look forward to receiving your valued input.

Time to turn some “Bangers” at Bunnings again!

On Saturday 18th February we are again hosting the BBQ at Bunnings Woodville.  Bunnings has been very supportive of our club which has allowed us to bank more than $8,000 from our activities at the Woodville store since the start of the season.

We are seeking volunteers to do a shift of a couple of hours on the day which we will hopefully see us break $10,000.  If you can help, there is a roster on the club notice board or alternatively, please contact Pat Hansen on 0422 007 413 or phansen@adam.com.au to register your availability.

Remember, all funds received will go to upgrading our facilities which are scheduled to commence in less than 12 months.

It’s your Family Club – make it happen!

 

Bunnings BBQ a success – your chance to get involved in the next one!

bunnings-bbq

A big thankyou to everyone that helped at the Woodville Bunnings bbq last Sunday.  We sold more than 1200 snags which will result in well over $2000 being raised for our building works set to start in April next year.

We are now seeking members (and friends) to help us with the hosting of another Bunnings bbq on Tuesday 27th December.  This is the first trading day after Christmas and it is expected to be a similarly busy day.  It is an official public holiday.

If you can assist with a couple of hours of your time please let Pat Hansen know on 0422 007 413 or email at phansen@adam.com.au. Alternatively, if you are going to the club for drinks on Christmas morning the roster will be available to put your name down.

The time slots are 8am-10am, 10am-noon, noon-2pm, 2pm to 4.30pm.

Throw another one on the BBQ for the Club!

We are urgently seeking the assistance of volunteers to help this Sunday (18th December) as the club is hosting the bbq at Bunnings Woodville.  It is likely to be a very busy day with sales expected to exceed over $2000.  That’s a great boost to our club.  If you can spare a couple of hours please give Pat Hansen a call on 0422 007 413 or email him at phansen@adam.com.au .  All funds raised are going into our building fund in preparation for our major redevelopment commencing in January 2018.

We have also been allocated Tuesday 27th December which we expect to be quite busy given it is their first trading day after Christmas.  Again if you can help, please contact Patrick and help the club raise valuable funds to improve our facilities.

Merry christmas
