BOOKLET FOR 2019/2020
The new booklet is due out in July.
80th BIRTHDAY JUNE 4TH
Tony Layzell will be joining this fast growing group. We will have Tony’s morning tea and mugging at 10.15am on this date. Once again a plate of finger food would be welcome.
MID WINTER LUNCH & 80th BIRTHDAY
Unfortunately I could not get our usual booking date of the first Tuesday in July. Our mid-winter lunch will now be held a week earlier than usual on Tuesday 25th June. On this day we will also celebrate the 80th Birthday and Mugging of Jan Foothead.
Cost for a buffet catered lunch is $32.00 per person. I will take bookings with payment only, starting Tuesday 4th June. Please note this amount is subsidised by the committee.
CLEANING CLUBROOMS AFTER USE
Barry has been our cleaner for several years, he has not renewed his contract and finishes work at the end of May.
We have been spoilt by Barry who kept the clubrooms immaculate and cleaned up after every sections use of the building. Our new cleaner is not a club member and will not be on hand to clean so often. All sections are being asked to make sure they leave the clubrooms in a clean condition. Therefore you will need to wipe the table you sat at for morning tea, otherwise a committee member will have to do it. Please when you leave the table, check the floor for any crumbs .
We have purchased some new carpet sweepers, which are kept in the cupboard in the ladies changing rooms.
Every member is expected to wipe the table in front of where they sat if needed and to check the floor for crumbs.
If the council have been cutting the grass, try not to walk through it, please check your shoes before coming inside.
Management are also looking to purchase some boot scrapers.
Thank you Barry and Margaret for looking after us so well.
Work on fixing the leak has been completed. The rotten floor has been replaced. Linoleum will be replaced soon.
Don’t forget if you are travelling overseas anytime soon to let me know. A world map goes on our notice board over the winter months so we can track member’s travels. Ask me for a travel form, then we know where you are on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we can move the pins around the map.
TOWELS IN THE CHANGING ROOMS
Thank you to Maurie Neighbour who has donated 1 dozen towels for the use of those people who forget to bring theirs along. If you use one, please take it home to wash, then return for other forgetful people to use.
Don’t just leave it hanging in the changing room expecting the towel fairies to wash it!
HEALTH & SAFETY ISSUES
If you bring a friend along to walk/run please check them in with either Joy or myself. Please do this regardless of them being just a visitor, or a potential member.
If any group (large or small) is not going to make it back to the clubrooms close to 10.30am, please ring the clubrooms and let us know the reason for the hold up. Accident? Lost? Abducted by aliens? Otherwise we may not miss you and you will be locked out.
There has recently been incidents of both the above scenarios. (No, not the aliens!)
