A huge big thank you from our club to all those generous people who helped in setting up, organising, packing up and generally working on our very successful Bunnings barbecue on Saturday, January 6.

Thanks also go to Bunnings itself as they are very accommodating and helpful and to those in the media both online and otherwise who helped with advertising.

Not only do these funds help provide equipment but they also provide assistance to talented representative athletes with some of their competition expenses.
