Cleaned Club Equipment
Thank you very much to the volunteers who cleaned club jackets, plastrons, and breeches at the end of 2019! Could you please bring them back for the first session.
Also, a big thank you to the volunteers who have offered to stock-take and check over our other equipment during the first session.
First Aid course availability
In early February, we are organising a senior first aid certificate course for our club coaches. If you are interested in attending a first aid course yourself – either as a new trainee or for a refresher – we can include you in this course for less than an the cost of individual enrolments. This would also help to reduce club costs, as well as ensuring a good group of attendees for the course!
We estimate a cost of around $100 per person, or even less depending on numbers. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
