Snakepit “Working Bee” April 21st 2018

Basketball Illawarra Working Bee Saturday 21st April, 2018 (From 8:00am)

CAN YOU HELP?

The Association is undertaking ongoing renovations to improve the facilities at the Snakepit, for its members.

Unfortunately limited funds restrict the amount of renovation and any work which is completed by volunteers releases those funds to be spent on other improvements which will benefit members.

Thanks to Dulux, we now have a ample supply of paint which we will use to beautify and refresh the stadium’s grandstands, foyer, walls and wet areas.

If you can spare an hour or two it will spread the load on our small but committed band of volunteers – stay for a little or as long as you like. – Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We need volunteers who can paint, or handle a range of tasks such as, carpentry, tiling and plumbing.

Just as Basketball is a team sport, our renovations will also be a team effort so:-

  • Register, tell us what you are good at and we will place you in a team
  • Get a few friends and register as a team (ideally 4 persons) or
  • Turn up on the day and help out where you can.

ASSOCIATION DAY

Association Day a celebration of the wonderful Representative Program at Basketball Illawarra was held on Sunday 4th March. The day was amazing with all who attended having a sense of energy, enthusiasm and pride. We saw all of our volunteer Coaches and Managers standing alongside their players nurturing their ambitions to win as many games as possible in the stadium. To commemorate the year photos as snapshots in time were taken as a memento of the day. Our Referees were there who also have pride of place as without them we could not send our Teams into competition. All of this would not be possible without the efforts of those who put in the time to put it all together. A special thank you for the following people, for organising the day we have Craig to thank, for the photos we have Branka and her Sister, Teodora and Anita for making sure that people could order photo’s, Sandra and the Canteen Staff for the food, Gary and Tim for doing their part, Richard for all the printing, Rosie who always steps up where ever needed and to the Board of Directors who showed up in support of the great association we are. Lastly to all our parents and supporters who without them the juniors and seniors would not have spectators in cheering them on. Working together we as an association showed our numbers in force and hope to continue the energy and enthusiasm and for any other volunteers that were not mentioned none of what we do is possible so thank you.
Let the season begin!
