Throughout the year the Mayne Football club runs meat tray raffles at the Breakfast Creek Hotel on a Friday night at 5:30 PM to raise funds for the Senior and Junior football clubs. This tradition has been going on for years and raises much needed funds for the club to support club equipment purchases, activities and events.
To run these raffles the club relies on the goodwill of a core group of dedicated club members plus the added support of team players and parents.
To share the workload around a roster has been created up until the end of the year (and start of next year) with nominated dates for parents from Junior and Youth teams to provide support in the selling of raffle tickets.
Your team will need 2-3 parents/guardians to meet in the Public Bar of the Breakfast Creek Hotel about 5:25pm on the Friday night your team is rostered on. It usually takes about one hour.
Look for the white-board with Mayne Tigers on it in the Public Bar. There will be at least one of Mayne’s regulars there with everything that is needed to run the raffles. You just need to turn up and sell some tickets.
Please let your Team Manager know if you are coming, and Team Managers please do not assume that I’ll know someone from your team will be at the Creek. Once you find out will be attending please email me or text me on 0404 040 660 by the Wednesday night before the Friday your team is rostered on to let me know how many parents/guardians will be helping out. We have one Mayne Senior driving down from Bribie Island to help out when we have not heard from anyone from the rostered team.
The roster for the first quarter of 2014 is as follows:
- Friday 3rd: No raffles - Christmas Break
- Friday 10th: No raffles - Christmas Break
- Friday 17th: Under 8s (School Holidays)
- Friday 24th: Under 9s (School Holidays)
- Friday 31st: Under 10s
- Friday 7th: Under 11s
- Friday 14th: Under 12s
- Friday 21st: Under 14s
- Friday 28th: Under 6s and Under 16s
- Friday 7th: Under 8s
- Friday 14th: Under 9s
- Friday 21st: Under 10s
- Friday 28th: Under 11s
So why not come on down to the Breakie Creek Hotel on a Friday night for a drink and a meal with the family and friends and help us sell some raffles tickets at the same time - you never know you might even enjoy it or even better win a meat tray and some beers for a lazy Sunday afternoon BBQ!!!
See you at the "Creek" !!
Thank you for your assistance.
