50th Anniversary Reminders

The big day is almost here !

A big thank you to all those who came out on Sunday to tidy up the grounds. Piggie Park is looking smart and ready to receive the several hundred people expected this Saturday.

In preparation for the big day, there are a few things for everyone to be aware of:

Dinner Tickets

Dinner tickets are SOLD OUT.

For those who reserved or paid in advance through the bar, you will be able to collect your tickets on Saturday from 11 am onward.  A table will be set up in front of the Clubhouse. 

Cash and cheques are preferred but debit/credit card is also an option through the bar.

Drink Tickets

In order to keep the traffic running smoothly at the bar, we will be selling tickets for drinks throughout the day:

• Beer: $4

• All other drinks: $5

Beer will be served outside in a designated area, all other drinks will be available inside.  Outside alcohol is not permitted.

Parking

Parking attendants will be on site from 11 am onward.  Please follow their direction, and enter our facility with caution and consideration for everyone’s safety.  As we’re expecting a lot of people, we encourage as many people to carpool as possible.

There is no parking in front of the Club on Herd Road.  Please plan according.

Volunteers

We still need a few people to help out with various things:

• Sales of t-shirts, hats and dinner/drink/raffle tickets
