Quiz night needs your donations

Saturday November Club Quiz night is fast approaching and we are seeking donations for prizes and silent auction items.

Last year’s quiz night was a great success, raising approximately $3500, and we would like to make this year’s even better. With the redevelopment coming up in 2018 the club is needing to raise funds to put towards this venture and other projects in and around the club.

If you would like to contribute in the way of prizes, vouchers, goods or services or in any other way you can think of, please contact Carmel Kenny on 0402241841 or Dot Moffatt on 0407415008 or catch up with one of us around the club.

Start organising your teams for a night of fun and mental exercise.

 

Looking for fresh ideas for Fundraising

If you have some great ideas for fundraising come along to the Club this Sunday 24th September at 3:15pm.  A Fundraising meeting will be held immediately after the Nippers Early Registration day and we are looking for committee members.  As the saying goes many hands make light work.  We are a volunteer organisation and rely on the success of our fundraising events.

We have some exciting developments on the horizon.  This is your Club.  It’s a family affair.  We want to have your input.

We’d love to see you there!

 

Final call for volunteers at the Cross Country BBQ and cake stall!

Also any budding MasterChef cupcake makers out there who can supply some cupcakes to sell for $1 each would be appreciated.
