MEN MEMBERS (SEXIST-YES): Our sheds need a good clean out. The women of the club work on a house keeping roster, whilst many of our male members do not contribute to the everyday upkeep of our club’s sheds/equipment. If you feel you would like to help in this area could you let Bob, Larry, Tim or Peter Tracey know. At times I am sure they would be grateful for an extra hand.
Over the last two weeks severe damage has been done to our lawns. Malcolm, our green keeper has had to dig up the damaged area and replace it with new grass clumps. This is a difficult task.
If you accidentally damage the lawn and can not fix it, please let a committee person know. If one is not at the Club write information on the Club exterior notice board or phone Peter, Bob, Larry or Tim.. The sooner the lawn is repaired the better chance of the grass growing.
ENTERTAINMENT BOOKS 2018: From Elaine
You may have heard of the Entertainment Book, available in all states, which has savings offers for dining, shopping, accommodation, car hire, activities. We receive 20% of sales which helps us raise money for our Club which we use to purchase equipment. The new edition will be launched in May but you can pre-order and receive extra early bird vouchers which can be used immediately. These books also make useful presents for family and friends and they are available for all States on the order page.
I recommend the digital edition – it can be loaded on two phones and it means you always have it with you when dining out so you can check what’s available in any area you are in and updates throughout the year are easily added. Should you purchase a digital edition your early bird offers will be updated automatically to your phone.
11 March-24 March: Deidre and Toni
25 March-7 April: Sally and Jessica
8 April-22 April: Gwen and Graeme
23 April-6 May Sue Beattie and Elaine
