Garage Sale

Thank you to those of you who helped out in some capacity. A special shout out to Lynne Hutchinson. We couldn’t have done it without you! I often went to the club and found Lynne busy pricing items all by herself. Lynne, it did not go unnoticed. Since Qualicum had their garage sale on the same day it was decided that we would promote each others event. That had a positive impact on our sales. We are still reviewing the contribution that having the container on site to our bottom line. Since the kitchen is closed until further notice maybe filling it up with garage sale items would be a good interim use. We thus avoid the container cost. Our minds are now busy exploring avenues to increase the number and value of the merchandise we are able to offer. Our numbers are down slightly from the previous couple of years but still respectable. As always, any and all input is greatly appreciated.

Baking

We have a couple of events coming up this month; the open houses and the novice lessons. Although not necessary it is nice to be able to refreshments in the way of tea, coffee and goodies. To that end we need some baking. Please put what you bring into the freezer.

Thank you very much, Sandi Mitchell

Volunteers needed this week!

We need volunteers to assemble the benches this Tuesday starting at 9:00 am. The work involves bending over and lying down underneath the benches. Please bring a screw gun (aka drill with Robertson #2 bit). The more the merrier!
Thanks!

Fortis Team

Hi all,

Here’s the Fortis team that helped us out! Sanded and painted the frames they did.
Amazing and done in 3 hours on Friday, with more to come.

Tarmac Upgrade

Here are some tantalizing photos of the tarmac upgrade.  Visit the club to see the real thing as well as the bowl shed upgrade, the magical improvement to the bowling green after a cruel winter and the initial steps to the benches and landscaping.

Closure of the Kitchen

Closure of the Kitchen

Please be advised that effective today, the kitchen is closed (except for the dishwasher for the use of the bar). We are currently seeking a Social Director to take over the running of our kitchen. At the SAGM the Board will be looking for a volunteer to step up as Social Director. The Board and Club Members would like to thank Vicki and Mick for all their contributions to our Club.
