Bunnings BBQ Fundraiser

Many thanks to the tried and trusted helpers who made the bbq such a great success. Special appreciation for help on the day goes to Joan Hart, Brenda Stephenson, Judy Collier, Kevin Short, Bill Kinsey, David Carratt and Steve Orchard.

Special donations and contributions of bread rolls from Maitland Hockey and drinks from the canteen were a great help and we raised a grand total of $1,250 to give to the Basedow family. What a great effort!!!!!!!

** CANTEEN SALE **

All drinks, sweets, chips, twisties, beers, cider and wine MUST BE SOLD + 2kg of bacon. All at cost & special prices. The Turf Committee is asking for your help to make use of these goods that were ready for the winter season because it is now very unlikely we will get to play any hockey this year.

Please bring your own bag and remember the ‘social distancing’ protocols.

Registrations
A reminder the women’s competition commences this Saturday 7 March 2020. If you have not already done so please register with Hockey NSW.

See previous posts for links and instructions on how to register (if you a new) or renew your registration. You will need to be registered before you can take the field.

Team managers please encourage all your players to registered ASAP (preferably before the season commences). In an effort to get everybody to register before the season starts the rules have been amended that the requirement that each player must play at least 60% of the round games to be eligible to play in finals will now be taken from the first game you actually play not from the date you register.

Draw
The draw has also previously been posted. Please ensure you have your canteen and umpiring duties covered also.

Women’s Masters

For those wanting to order the Masters Jumpers this year please see order form and sizing chart below. Please note you need to order and pay for these individually, it is not something to be given to our Masters Committee. Please place your orders ASAP.

The email received from Sue Abba says:  

I know this is going out on a NSW Masters newsletter, but just thought would send to all contacts.

Gives a bit of an idea of the sizes for Zip jackets. They will all be blue(heather) but with different coloured logo. 50-Navy, 60- green, 70 Maroon.

75 + to organise their own jumpers, & I will organise to have embroidered & refund cost.
