Flick has completed their pest spray (second spray was on Tuesday 26/2) and the kitchen is now fully operational. A big thank you to the members who took the initiative to unpack the crates, so that when I arrived Thursday, ready for a big job, it was done. A contingent of members, led by Nola Daly, ably assisted by Mariana Xerri, muscled by John Aldridge and supervised by Phil Thomas had the job done!  It's an absolutely wonderful feature of our club that the members pitch in. 


This event will be held on Saturday 2 March commencing at 9.30am.

The cost is $25 per person ($100 per team). This includes morning tea, lunch and drinks and nibbles at conclusion of play.

Please note entries close at 5pm Wednesday 27 February.

Entries via the Notice Board or email to CCBC.
