Ronnie Lines needs our help. There is a very specialised treatment available to him, but it’s not funded. We are looking to raise every cent we can to help him achieve his goal of getting this groundbreaking treatment.
If you have any bright fundraising ideas, please email them to Gayle at the office, or jot them down and hand them in to a committee member!
MEMBERSHIP CARDS MUST BE CARRIED ON YOU AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN THE CLUB PLEASE!
NB: We have had notification from RSA National Office that there is a major delay on getting new cards printed due to Covid delaying shipments from China. Please bear with us! Keep your 2020 card handy and use this if travelling. We are not the only RSA in this position and 2020 cards will be honoured for a few more months! If any club refuses you entry, please call us and we will try to assist you on the phone!
SPUD IN THE BUCKET WINNERS
Congrats to everyone for the great crops produced this year, and thanks again to our fabulous sponsors: Daltons, who provided all the bags of soil and Wrightsons for the supply of seed potatoes.
- Heaviest crop: Viv Parnell – 1.762kg
- Heaviest individual spud: Don Doughty – 378g
- Junior section: Chelsea Doughty – 1.138kg
- Smallest crop: Warren Taylor – 50g
Are you celebrating a special occasion, birthday, anniversary etc. Please bear the Club in mind when you consider booking a venue! Who else do you know whom you could recommend?
Don’t Drive & Drive! Not only is it the law, but it’s stupid! We offer a door to door service but bookings are essential!
To make a booking, call the bar after 3pm but preferably before 5pm when the bar gets busy – sometimes too busy to answer the phone! The van is available to all members, as well as to groups for functions.
There is no charge for the usage …. But donations are always welcome! To tempt you into using the bus and offering up a donation, all users can put their name down on the sheet at the bar – every usage of the van puts you in the draw for a large meat pack raffle, drawn when each sheet is full!
KEEP IT CLEAN
As a family friendly club, we encourage all members to be respectful in terms of bad language and lewd jokes.
The poppy wall is not going as well as we’d hoped – we did hope to have it almost full by ANZAC day. To this end, we have dropped the price of the donation from $10 to $5.
Please consider buying a poppy to remember a loved one who is no longer with us.
See you at the Club!
