Hi Members and Friends,

It has been a long time now since I last wrote a blog to let you all know what is and has been happening, and what will be happening  around our fantastic club.

As you would be aware the renovations are all finished now and the club is back to functioning as normal, a huge thanks to Derek Meadows who worked countless hours co-ordinating the trades people to complete the job in a timely manner.

We are currently only having meals on Friday nights but the committee is working on events for Thursday nights that would include meals also, if you have any suggestions please feel free to talk to a committee member and give us your ideas.  The committee will give due consideration to all suggestions.

This Friday night the 1st of March we have a special guest coming to the club to give a 5 minute talk about RSL Care.  As we know caring for the elderly and sick is a huge responsibility for the RSL and Nathan Kling is the CEO of RSLSA our own organisation that is doing a fantastic job of looking after our veterans.

If you can please come in and listen to what he has to say and show your support for this worthy cause it would be greatly appreciated.

Next Friday the 8th of March the City of Port Adelaide Enfield Mayor, Claire Boan and the 2 Semaphore councillors, Helen Wright and David Wilkins will be joining us for a drink, I hope as many of you that are able will come along and meet the Mayor and Semaphore Ward Councillors.

ANZAC Day is coming fast now and we need a lot of volunteers for the day, there will be a sheet placed on the notice board at the Club, please add your name if you are able to give a little help. ANZAC Day is of course the biggest day on the club calendar, and is also our biggest fundraiser of the year.

Footy tipping, the club will be running a footy tipping competition again this year please get your name in soon, $20 entry and you could win an absolute fortune or about $400 depending how many people we get. We will be having as many as possible twilight siren to siren and all the showdown football matches on the big screen, with cheaper drinks, and free bar snacks on Saturday nights.

For those that haven’t been in for a while the huge screen (the biggest in the area) is fantastic for watching footy.

The lawn bowling on Thursday nights is going well, the season is almost finished with RSL 1 on top of the ladder.

The pool and snooker comps are well under way, so as you can see there is plenty happening, so why not come down, visit your mates and join in, we would love to see you.

My apologies for not writing more often but will make more of an effort in the future. 

Colin Johns
