Club connecting to the NBN
You may have seen evidence of works in the carpark. Your club is connecting to the NBN which should result in greatly improved telephone and internet services which have plagued the Club for sometime. The good news is the NBN is paying for the cost of the cable and the installation. We expect there will be significant cost savings for our telecommunications suit. Once the connection is finalized in the next few months.
Handicap Carpark pole
We are aware that the steel pole in the carpark has been run into many times by member vehicles. Given that any vehicle carrying a handicapped person could access a vacant space by parking facing south we think that the pole is not essential and have not replaced it since it was last hit.
Kayo sports connection plan
We have been paying $610 per month for a Foxtel connection the board has decided that the annual expenditure of $7,320 cannot be justified. We will be replacing Foxtel with a Kayo Sports subscription service once the NBN connection is completed.
Asset refurbishment projects
Some of you may wonder where your contributions to the asset refurbishment fund go. The Club house is an older building and the equipment in it needs ongoing maintenance. This month we have had to replace the condenser in the Bar to keep your tap beer cold as well as repairing the meter on the railway bore which supplies most of the Club’s reticulation water. If we get any change out of $5,000 we will be doing well. Next month we plan to replace the doors in the ladies changerooms although this is not a big job.
Outstanding 2020 Fees
All playing members are reminded that if you have not paid your 2020 fees or supplied the Club with an updated direct debit form to replace the old Prycap form your playing rights will be suspended from close of business Friday 14th February (regardless of Valentines Day) Please let the office know if you will not be renewing your membership.
Congratulations to Bernadette Fee on hitting a hole in one!
