The race is on to Aussies 2020

With the cre­ation of a fundrais­ing steer­ing group fol­low­ing a meet­ing at the club. This ini­tia­tive, by Carl Mills and Mike Gigney, is to encour­age as large a tour­ing team as pos­si­ble to attend the Aussies 2020 in Queens­land. The steer­ing group will man­age the fundrais­ing activ­i­ties for all com­pe­ti­tion areas of the club with the view to rais­ing mon­ey to sup­port com­peti­tors and their fam­i­lies in get­ting to the event.

The steer­ing group con­sists of Carl Mills, Tanya Hon­or, Mike Gigney, Jes­per Ras­mussen, Dawn Jones, Gail Tris­ton and Cameron Rap­ley. The steer­ing group can be con­tact­ed direct­ly via email, with any fundrais­ing sug­ges­tions, ques­tions or offers of assis­tance that you may have.

All com­peti­tors and their sup­port­ers are encour­aged to get behind the Aussies 2020 cam­paign, par­tic­i­pate in the fundrais­ing activ­i­ties and we will see you on the beach in Queens­land 2020.”

Our Aussies 2020 work­ing group recent­ly per­formed their first fundrais­ing activ­i­ties at the State IRB Cham­pi­onships, held at Sor­ren­to Beach.

Despite a late change of venue from Mul­laloo to Sor­ren­to and some hor­ri­ble weath­er we still had a great turnout of club vol­un­teers. Funds were raised by doing beach pack up and cooking/selling burg­ers. Final fig­ures are not in yet but our fundrais­ing has had a good kick start as a result of our vol­un­teer efforts. A fin­er day at our own beach would have no doubt seen a more prof­itable result.

The Aussies 2020 fundrais­ing pro­gram will real­ly ramp up over the com­ing months with many spe­cial cal­en­dar events to come.

If you have any great fundrais­ing ideas or would like to be involved please email us.
