News from the Shed Feb 2021

What with the holiday season, travel and the (by now usual and expected) changes to the COVID regime, it has been a busy time for all of us. So, first cab off the figurative rank is COVID SAFETY PLAN. See here for the current CMS COVID documents.

By way of a quick note of clarification, we still are unable to guarantee the status of all of our kitchen equipment as is mandatory under the rule so we are restricted to disposable cups and plates and the like and it looks as though this will be the case for the foreseeable future. So, restricted access to the main body of the kitchen for the time being.

SOCIAL PLAN and TRAINING
Your Committee has been working on re-activating our regular social events.

Our regular Thursday BBQ (with partners) is now again possible and will resume on Thursday February 25 from about 4PM until the BBQ is shut down around 6:30. As usual bring along your small change as snags are still $2 and the usual for BYO wines and spirits.

Crib players will be organising their own start times.

We hope to have more training sessions but because of the necessary close contact in classes, masks will have to be worn and for welding, participants will need to provide their own helmets.

The Wednesday Ladies Group has reformed, their small numbers being readily accommodated within the recent changes to the rules.

ALL OF THE ABOVE HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY DESIGNED TO BE WITHIN THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
(Again with the COVID stuff) this has been scheduled for 7PM on Thursday March 18, 2021 and will be held at the Kingborough Bowls Club, 1615 Channel Highway Margate 7054.

More information will issued but, as usual, nomination forms will be on the Secretary’s desk.

To be eligible to nominate, or indeed to vote at the meeting, you need to a current financial member. Make sure that you have paid your subscription. (We are running a little ahead of performance for last year so many thanks to those who have already paid.)

GARDEN
The last note out to the membership noted that the garden is in production and Lawrie tells us he will endeavour to have the available selection of produce ready for sale on Mondays. Quality of all-organic vegetables is excellent and the prices cannot (I think) be beaten.

SMALL PROJECTS – See this post for some small projects from Heiko.
