Just a quick note this week to let you know a little about what has been happening in your club and a small amount of what we are doing in the future.
ANZAC Day has now passed once again, as you know none of the event can be organised or run by one or 2 people on their own. This year was no exception. I must thank the huge number of volunteers this year, I think maybe more people volunteered this year than any other. It is impossible to thank every one with out missing some ones name so I will simply say a huge heart felt thanks to all that helped.
This week the $300 cash draw was won by Julie Meadows, a very worthy winner and congratulations.
Over the next few weeks you will see some new club memorabilia being purchased by the club, so look out for that and support where you can. We are also now selling Pirate Life beer, so if you want to try something different and support a local brewery come and have a can with us.
One of our goals this year is to open for meals on more days. Petrice is running a pub Trivia quiz on Thursdays, and when we get enough people coming into the club Steve will start to open the kitchen. Until then we are putting on bar snacks for those who play. Over the winter we would also like to have meals on a Sunday, so watch your emails, facebook and letter boxes for updates.
We have a Bunnings BBQ (Woodvillle) coming in May so we will be looking again for support to run that. If you have a couple of hours please put your name down as this will make it easier on the ones that are having to spend all day there.
On Sunday the 19th
May we will be holding our AGM at 12.00 noon with a free lunch and a couple of drinks per member. This will also be the time that all positions on the committee will be vacated and a new committee elected.
If you would like to be involved with the running of the club and be part of the steering committee to take the club forward into the future then this is the time.
The club needs good leadership and governance to remain on top of the game and keep progressing into the future for all members.
Nomination forms are in the club, if there is room on the committee after the nominations are open then nominations can be taken from the floor, so save disappointment and nominate early.
Any questions if any that you may have prior to the AGM can also be directed to Phil Stewart ( stretch ) as he is the nominated returning officer this year and will take the nominations for the new committee.
I would like to thank the current committee for all their dedication and many hours of work they have volunteered over the last year, and what a year it has been.
Hope to see you all in the club soon
