All donations are greatly appreciated. If donating foodstuffs, please ensure that they are still “in date” and

not expired.

Following the wrapping of prizes, we will hold a “Country Club Meeting” around 3pm.

Happy Hour will happen around 4.30pm. As done since the start of CO-VID, everyone to bring their own plate of nibbles and drinks.

Dinner will start at 7pm allowing everyone time to prepare their Christmas feast.

It has become a tradition for members to set up their tables and chairs adding a bit of Christmas sparkle to their tables, cook their own dinner, bring their own refreshments and sit down at the same time together. There are some tables in the undercover area, so we will be able to use these, otherwise you may have to bring your own table or share a table with others.

So don’t forget - pack Christmas decorations for your table and your campsite. This adds to the festive atmosphere of the weekend.

The Club will give each child a small gift and we also ask parents/grandparents to bring a small gift to no more than $15 with the child’s name marked on it, for Santa to present to them.
