This Friday 3rd November we’re asking every member that wears their (clean) gumboots for a $3.00 donation. Those that don’t wear their gumboots will be requested to make a $5.00 donation.
Feel free to decorate your gumboots however you want, we’d love to see what you can come up with.
Donations and fines can be paid by EFTPOS at the bar (pay with your drink/food order) or cash.
We’ll have burgers, chips and sausages available.
This is in support of https://www.gumbootfriday.org.nz/
Gumboot Friday, founded by mental health advocate Mike King, is a free counselling service for any young person in New Zealand aged 25 and under.
An overworked, underfunded, and under resourced public mental health service has led to excruciatingly long wait times for young people needing immediate help. Our free counselling platform provides a bridge to rangatahi in need by breaking down the barriers of cost and wait times.
By supporting Gumboot Friday, you’re making a real difference, helping us keep up with the rising demand and ensuring every young Kiwi gets the mental health support they deserve.
This beer with ginger is naturally fermented and doesn’t use refined sugars. In the spirit of a traditional Ginger Beer there is spice from the ginger and cinnamon and a refreshing kick from the lemon with a dry finish.Sawmill Brewery blog post
First order of business for our new President after organising the after AGM BBQ was to arrange putting the shade awnings back up.
These provide a welcome respite from the sun while cooling off with a beverage in the large patio area. Additionally this year we have the awning above the BBQ stations which will no doubt please those performing cooking duties.
It was wonderful to see so many present to help ensure the continuation of the club and hear what we’ve got coming up in the way of challenges and ideas.

A huge Thank You to Peter Schare and Grant Northcott for their tenures as President and Vice-President respectively. Peter had some very kind words to say in his report as the out-going club president; including acknowledgements to all those staff and volunteers that have worked so hard over the last 12 months (often behind the scenes) to ensure the club keeps going and meets all it’s requirements.
