CENTRE NEWSLETTER 01 MARCH 2022

CENTRE NEWSLETTER 01 MARCH 2022
Friday 25 March heralds the end of competition for our 2021-2022 season
 
REMINDER: The most important date to write in your calendars is Sunday 10 APRIL, 2022. This date is a celebration of all our Athletes, our Award Winners, and includes our AGM and Annual Break Up and BBQ at Bli Bli Watersports Park. Further details on this will be posted on our Website later this month. There will be a minimum cost for athletes participating in the Aqua Park sessions. RSVPs will be required.
 
Thank you ALL for your patience over these past few weeks whilst we monitor weather reports and grounds conditions. It surely has been challenging throughout February and we can only hope that March will provide a reprieve for us and we can finish off our season with a Bang!!!

FRIDAY 4 MARCH
Is the final night for athletes to achieve their Personal Best Points. Once performances are finalised at the end of competition we can process results for our end of year recognitions. Should this date be cancelled (dare I say it) for any reason then the results as they stand at Friday 18 February (our last competition night) will be used.


MCDONALD’S STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Our very best wishes to the 17 athletes from Maroochy who will be attending the McDonalds State Championships in Brisbane from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 March. BE YOUR BEST and you cannot ask for more than that. Enjoy your competition and have FUN. There will be the usual Centre competition at our grounds on Friday 11 March for those athletes not attending States. We may require extra assistance on events as some of our key people will be taking their children to States so don’t be afraid to STEP UP and help out where required PLEASE.


MAROOCHY CENTRE PENTATHLON
We can confirm that our Centre Pentathlon will be held on Friday 18 March. This replaces our “normal” weekly program where athletes compete in a set 5 events for their various age groups and points are awarded for performances. Ribbons are awarded to all those athletes participating, so come along and join in the FUN competition.😊

Our final night on 25 March will be novelty events!!! Do you know of any we could use?


EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
Are now open for positions on our Committee for the 2022/23 seaason. We require volunteers to fill all the positions on Committee. Some of our longer serving members will be stepping down and all positions on Committee are declared vacant so PLEASE even though some of the current members may be re-nominating we do require some extras on our committee to fill some voids.  

Fundraising and Sponsorship is one area that we really need to concentrate on next season so if you have a flare for this type of position please DON’T BE SHY. We also need to form a Grounds sub-committee so if you can help out in this area we will welcome you with open arms.

Your submissions of interest can be forwarded to our Secretary Vanessa via email to maroochylas@gmail.com  or you can offer a verbal interest with our Centre Manager Alison. Maroochy was established in 1981 and with your support and enthusiasm we intend to continue for at least another 40 years !!!!


McDONALDS CARDS
And Achievement Certificates: There are still several cards to be collected. Please pick them up at Friday nights competitions. You could be missing out on some vouchers!!. There is more information on our website


SPONSORS for our AGE TROPHIES
In a previous newsletter we did seek interest for families to sponsor our Age Trophies. We have since had an offer from Exam Success who are an online business run locally from the Sunshine Coast and who have ties to our Centre to sponsor all our Age Trophies. We have accepted their generous offer. 

A huge thank you to the families who had offered to sponsor however our Marketing has now committed to using One Sponsor for All Age Groups.


Don’t forget to put Sunday 10 April in your diaries. Join in the fun at BLI BLI WATERSPORTS PARK and relax with friends for a BBQ to complete our Season. 😊

More details on this shortly, please watch facebook and the website for updates.

 


Stay safe out there everyone, please give a shout out if you need a hand in any way after the devastating weather event we have just experienced and let’s hope we can get together again on Friday night so the kids can have a final “hit out” for that extra important PB.
