Club Working Bee – Sat October 1st, 8am.

We are holding a working bee this weekend on Saturday 1st October starting at 8am.

If you can spare some time to assist it would be greatly appreciated by the club.

Bring whatever tools you have, but Shovels, Rakes, Wheelbarrows, brush cutters etc would be useful.

This season the Kingfishers will be hosting Preliminary finals in the O35, All Age Mens and Women and Junior Competitions.

The games will be over the weekend of Fri 26th August – Sun 28th August.

We expect this to be a huge weekend for the club and a major fundraiser through the canteen.

The club is requesting all senior teams (All Age, O35 and ZPL) to fill a session below to assist, given senior teams have only minimal duties throughout the season and are not required to man the canteen. We will require 5 people at all times to assist on canteen (2), duty officer (2) and extra for Bbq assistance or duty officer depending on what is required.

We wil also welcome any volunteers from junior teams. The more hands we have the easier the weekend will be.

Time slots as follows:
– Friday 445pm – 745pm including ground setup (Sat O35 C’s)
– Friday 745pm – 1045pm including ground pull down (Sat O35 A’s)
