Can you spare some time on Australia Day?

Dear Members,

The Club has been approached for the use of the ground on Friday the 26th of January to host a six team round-robin hockey carnival.  The Community organisation making the request has indicated about 200 spectators with a couple of the teams made up of people from interstate.  You’d appreciate this is a very late request, but the previous ground they have used hasn’t be able to accommodate them this year, but that Club wasn’t organised enough to be able to tell them that till yesterday.


The reason for raising this is that the organisers have asked if there is any chance of having the kiosk open during the tournament.  Given this is a long weekend, with many people likely to be away, the organisers expectations have been set accordingly, however if there are people around who might be able to spend an hour or two in the kiosk, it might enable us to raise some unexpected revenue.

If you can help out could you please let me know by Monday evening and the time you might be able to help.

  The Community Group  have requested the ground from 8.00 am till 3.00 pm as an indication of possible hours


I can be contacted on 0418 390, 791 for any questions or if you can spare some time on the 26th.
