  Drought Appeal

Drought assistance: An impressive amount of $758.80 was raised during the month of September for our Drought Appeal. This consists of $680 in regular table fees, and $78.80 in extra donations from players.  The Committee decided to round the amount up to $1,000 with an additional $241.20 of club funds. The committee felt that the funds should be donated to a specifically rural charity. Two such charities were chosen to receive $500 each, Aussie Helpers and Rural Aid.
