SHC 2013 Quiz Night

Our club’s annual Quiz Night, and the year’s major fundraising event, is fast approaching on August 24th.

Penny Redmond, SHC Social & Fundraising Co-ordinator, is urgently seeking someone, or a small group of people, to coordinate the Quiz Night prizes.

We ask teams to donate a basket of items from a designated “theme”, but prizes to be collected will be in addition to this.

It would involve:

  • Calling and visiting businesses to drum up prizes
  • Aiming to secure 2 or 3 large prizes for the Auction
  • Collecting prizes / coordinating with Penny to collect
  • Re-grouping prizes to either larger or smaller items
  • Storing items until the night and
  • Being a point of contact for team donated prizes

I am able to assist with the first two roles but we have a daughter getting married on that day so I won’t be able to do the coordination during the week prior to the event.

This is a much needed support role to ensure that the Quiz Night is a success.  Please contact myself on 0419 032 217 or Penny on 0401 087 773.  Your assistance will be very much appreciated and help your club continue to prosper.

Your immediate response to help will enable Penny and I get a good night’s sleep!

Community Consultation

There is a community consultation for the Kauri Parade Sports Facility Upgrade on this Wednesday 20th Feb 5pm to 7pm at the Club. This is an informal event for anyone to attend and ask questions and see the plans in greater detail (ie the blown up versions). It would be great to have as many people as possible to attend this event.
Kelly from Holdfast Council advised that things seem to be progressing well from their end. They are particularly happy that Seacliff Hockey and Tennis Clubs are being so co-operative and are working so well together to make this happen which is great news!

Kelly has been advised that a new hybrid surface is becoming a necessity given the second pitch at the Pines is to be constructed shortly, and that there will be a high risk of us loosing PL games in the future unless we have hybrid pitch. Kelly was not aware of this and was very responsive and understands the effect of loosing these games will have on our club. Kelly is talking fast tracking the pitch if needed – we may need to kick in some funds too to make this happen.

So it would be great if you could help our club could fill the room and show your support for this very exciting project!

Draft Master Plan for New pitch and tennis courts.

We have received the “Draft Master Plan” for the redevelopment of our Hockey and Tennis grounds (Kauri Pde Engagement Flyer). In summary it will entail;

  • A NEW water based hockey only pitch;
  • New Tennis courts on the current grassed area on the southern side of our site;
  • A Hockey warm up area;
  • New 2 or 3 story multi-purpose club rooms and bar facilities overlooking both sporting areas.

This is a major re-development in the order of $10mil and will provide Seacliff with a state of the art playing surface and facilities. Seacliff with have arguably the best satellite facility in the State and will provide us with the premier venue South of the city to play hockey.

The Seacliff Hockey Board are 100% behind this proposal and we urge all members to please take the time to provide feedback on this development. There is a small window of opportunity to do this – ie by the end of February.

Please email responses to mail@holdfastbay.sa.gov.au or visit the online hub @ yourviewhq.holdfast.sa.gov.au.

Again, this is an exciting and monumental development that will shape our club well into the future – its a great opportunity for all of us to show support and help get this happening. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email me on the contacts below.
