To all Association Parents and Members Our 2019 winter season is nearly over and on Friday 11th October we will commence our 2019/20 Summer season. As you are probably aware it takes volunteers, who are an invaluable asset, to keep our association running. As our older age teams move on, so do their parents and therefore our volunteers have to continually change. It is imperative that as new players join us our volunteer base also grows. We will be incorporating a new system in the upcoming season so volunteers will no longer be needed to man the front counter. However the canteen, which is one of our main sources of income, can only be successful if we have the volunteers to cover the shifts. Our winter season saw minimal volunteers in the canteen, which not only diminishes an income but, most importantly, the work load on the few is extremely high and very unfair to those giving of their time. Not only is your child benefiting from the income generated from the canteen (all monies from the canteen are utilised within the association), but with more volunteers we can also provide better service. We run a roster basis and we ask that you volunteer 2 hours per fortnight to assist in the canteen. The more volunteers we have we can then break the roster up into smaller hours per shift OR perhaps 1 in 3 weeks can be achieved. We also have in place a volunteer voucher. If you volunteer for a full season (April to October OR October to April) the voucher can be redeemed for a $70 discount off the following season’s fees. Please consider volunteering in the upcoming season. You can meet/make new friends and also help your Association. If we are unable to source volunteers for next season we may have to consider not opening the canteen which will mean a loss of an income which could then reflect in an increase to the fees. Canteen Hours: 4:00 – 6:00 x 2 persons, 4:30 – 6:30 x 2, 5:00 – 7:00 x 1 person, 5:30 – 7:30 x 1, 6:00 – 8:00 x 1 6:30 – 8:30 x 1 If you can help out please contact Paula x email: firstname.lastname@example.org Please allocate a time preference – first in, best dressed.
