Club Awards night

Our Club Awards Night is locked in for Saturday the 15th of June, starting at 7.00pm.  The night will be a Cocktail-style evening and will be held at the Club. We will have more details in the coming week in relation to how to register your attendance & the theme for the evening.

This is a very important night for the Club, as it is an opportunity to recognise the significant contribution made by our various volunteers throughout the course of this last season & in some cases, prior seasons.  It is sure to be a great night for all members, so we look forward to seeing you there.

It is also not too late to nominate someone for a Service Award, so if you know of someone whom you believe has gone above & beyond the call of duty this year, please contact Raelene Donnell at or Kate Newman at with your suggested nomination prior to Tuesday the 21st of May.
