Welcome to the April Board report.
During the month we had the Lion Nathan Representatives inspect our beer supply lines and cleaning methods etc. and gave a resounding approval of our system. A huge congratulations goes to our staff for the continual top quality beer lines and product.
Currently we have Toby from the University of Newcastle assisting Graham with a new and exciting project soon to be announced, so keep watching this space.
Speaking of Graham, he has managed to secure a further Grant of $10,000 towards the installation of shade cloth over the mini golf course this will ensure a safer site for participants. Thank you to the NSW Dept of Sport and Recreation for the grant.
The Board has approved the wearing of caps/ hats and respectable singlets in the club for all members and guests for a trial period.
We are also pleased to say that we are in the process of negotiating a new sporting partnership with the University of Newcastle’s “Sea Pigs” male and female field hockey teams and look forward to their use and enjoyment of our club facilities in the future.
After negotiations with Lake Macquarie Council and the Kahibah Ovals Committee, two new advertising signs were installed at Kahibah Oval showing support for the Kahibah Football Club. It should be noted that the council ordered another club, illegally installed, to remove theirs.
Hopefully most of our members saw the press releases on NBN, in the Newcastle Herald and Prime, held last week with the signing of young Rixon Wingrove from the Phoenix Baseball Club (sponsored by KSC) to the Philadelphia “Phillies”. What a fantastic achievement for Rixon and the Phoenix Baseball Club. Thanks also goes to Emma for a great job in setting the show up with such short notice.
All members should be aware that the Club has strong working policies in place that are backed by the Clubs Constitution and By-Laws. These include but are not limited to Anti-Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment Policy, WHS policies and procedures for safe work place for staff, members and guests, and zero tolerance for violence or abuse of any kind. The Constitution, By-Laws and working policies and procedures are in place so that we can all feel safe and comfortable in our Club environment whether it be members, visitors or staff.
If you have anything you would like the Board to communicate on, please put it in writing and deliver to our CEO prior to each months Board meeting. The Board meets every third or fourth Monday of the month.
