eXTRACTS FROM THE PRESIDENT'S NEWS
No doubt the decision to cancel next Saturday’s Christmas in July lunch disappointed quite a few of our members but with the Covid numbers on the rise coupled with the indoor lunch setting, it was felt the prudent step to take. May I thank those members whose intention it was to attend the lunch and give support to our club’s fundraising activities. The lunch had been the occasion planned to launch the raffle of a brand new mallet gifted to the club by our good friend from Forster, Peter Coles.
May I remind everyone that our clubhouse is available for casual hire by members outside designated playing times. The hiring charge is $150 for a half day plus our cleaner’s fee currently $60 per hour..
GRANTS AWARDED TO CLUB
SOLAR POWER PANELS FOR CLUBHOUSE
17 Solar Power Panels have been installed on the Clubhouse roof along with a Battery attached to the outside western wall. This upgrade to the Clubhouse has been possible through a grant from the Northern Beaches Council Sport & Recreation Infrastructure Grants Program. It is hoped to be awarded a grant in the near future for air conditioning units to make the Clubhouse more comfortable on "hot and cold" days.
new club mallets and ballS
14 new wooden mallets (red handles) and 3 sets of primary coloured balls have been
purchased through a grant from the Northern Beaches Council's Local Sports Grant Program. These will be available for all to use, as well as visitors, and for coaching new members.
Roseanne continues with coaching of interested and new members on Monday mornings when it is not raining!! We thank her for encouraging these new members and more established players are to be encouraged to play with the new members to give them confidence and skills.
