2014 GFL Final Catering

St Mary's Sporting Club has the catering rights to the 2014 GFL Final Season. This means St Mary's Sporting Club we are responsible for running the canteen across all venues and all days of finals. We NEED players, parents, members and supporters to donate some time to assist us in facilitating this wonderful fundraising opportunity.
We urgently need help for Sunday sessions.  If teams could nominate a time and then share the workload that would be great. 

VENUE:        Finals are held across two venues.  
Week 1:      West Oval - Geelong West St Peters.  
Week 2-4:   Simonds Stadium

To assist with spreading the volunteer load we have allocated specific finals weeks to designated areas of the club.  Shifts are three hours in length and start at 9am 12pm, 12-3pm and 3-6pm.  We need 15 people for each shift.  A total of 45 people a day. Please note if you are not available for your weekend please look at other times that might suit.  More detailed informaton can be found at 2014 Canteen Support.

To register your interest in volunteering and to book times we are using the TryBooking system.  It is simple to use and easy for the Club to manage.

We hope you are able to donate some time if not on your allocated weekend at another time.

LETTER OF THANKS FROM STH AFRICA SUPPORTER.   

I just wanted to let you know my family and I were visitors to your club last Saturday 16th August.  We want to say thanks for a great day.  We are supporters of the South African team and we stayed back for the presentations etc post match.
 
I have not been down to any footy club for some time and we thought the people we met from St Mary's in the clubrooms and around the ground were extremely friendly and welcoming.
 
I know the South African team appreciates the relationship your club has with them too.
 
Top day - Thanks St Mary's.
 
Steve

CLUB SONG: (sung to the tune of It's A Grand Old Flag)

It's a grand old flag, it's a high flying flag,
It's the emblem for me and for you
It's the emblem of, the team we love,
The team of the green and the blue.
Every heart beats true, for the green and blue
As we sing this song to you, (what do we sing)
Should auld acquaintances be forgot
Keep your eye on the green and blue
