- WhatsApp is used an age group communication tool.
Contact information for us will always be at the bottom of our emails or you can use the ‘contact us’ page on the website.
Wet Weather Alert
A reminder where this is…. most of you found it on Friday or saw the email. Our website has a wet weather link in the top left hand corner which will be updated at 4pm on Friday.
We understand traveling to Duncan McKinnon on a Friday night is somewhat ‘different’ and we do appreciate the efforts you make to get here. As our trial athletes will be attending for the first time and we will offer the free sausage again to everyone. If anyone can give our Committee a hand to run the BBQ, we would appreciate that.
From next week, the BBQ will still operate so you have something to feed the kids on the way home but we will be charging a small fee to cover costs. Our ‘tap and collect’ payment options will be available to use (no Diners or American express).
Collection of Patches
Returning Members and New Members who have shown proof of age can collect their competition patch from the Age Group Manager. The patch is to be pinned onto the front of your t-shirt or singlet so that we can clearly see your name and the timing gates can scan your barcode. Many people laminate their patches, so they last the whole season!
New Members and Trial Athletes need to check in with Andrew at the front entrance. He will be to the right after you enter the main gate.
A reminder to check in and be aware of our Covid safe plan which is here. Thank you for your assistance with this.
Our Uniform and Apparel Stand will be open this week and located near the BBQ. Is there anyone able to give Sarah a hand to sell or process orders, particularly at the start of the session?
Do you have some extra time or happy to help us with very important duties at the club? Please read what amazing opportunities we have to offer here.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday!
