President’s Letter: State of Play and Pre-Season Training 2019

Hello Roadies,

I hope you are all doing well and have been safe and sound over this winter break. Today I am writing to you all to discuss the current state of the club and inform you of the hard work your elected Committee has been putting in. 

Committee Efforts

The Committee has created a vision to work towards with our time at the helm of SRCC. We are using the following statements to guide our actions:

  • On and off the field, we strive to improve.
  • No matter the odds, we fight for our best.
  • Irrespective of grade, we maintain our inclusive, diverse family.
  • Being proud of our history, we are driven to create our own.

I feel these statements explain our club well. To achieve this vision, I need help from you all. To cultivate the brotherhood and family that we need to succeed on and off the field we need to work together. We are all team mates – A grade to D grade – it’s one shirt we wear, let’s be proud to be Roadies!

The Committee is working hard to prepare for Season 2019-20. A major priority we have currently is sponsorship. If you work at a business able to contribute or have any ideas in this area can you please contact the Committee. On the fundraising front, we are looking into running Bunnings BBQs in the near future. We have made contact and are waiting to hear back about availability. I will contact everyone with more details as they arise, and I hope you can find a couple of hours to volunteer for this club we love.

Preseason Start

This year we are commencing Preseason on Sunday August 25th, with more details to follow. I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. 

We would like to return to 4 teams this season. The best way to grow this club is to bring your mates, all are welcome. The Committee is taking all necessary steps to recruit this off season but there is no better method than all of you roadies spreading the message about our great club.

Call for Captains

This letter is also a call to all club members as Captain positions for each grade have been declared vacant. All nominations are welcome. There will be plenty of support behind you and plenty of experienced heads to help you through the year. Please call (0430 021 525), text, or email me with expressions of interest.

Update Your Details

As the final part of this message, I am asking for you all to update your current contact information. We have put together a form you can fill out here. As a club, we need these details to keep you all informed of SRCC news, schedules, and social events. Also, in order to receive your Edwardstown Club Members Cards for discounted food and beverages, we need your current info and consent to send it on. Please fill the form out, even if you think we already have your details.

Regards,

Aaron Schmidt

President

LMS T20 Showdown 1

This week’s T20 promises to be a cracker, with our teams (Battle Cats and Road Warriors) going head to head! The inaugural showdown kicks off at 11am, Cnr Greenhill Rd and Glen Osmond Rd. If you have a spare couple of hours, head down and cheer them on (or simply come for a laugh)! Just remember to wear some SRCC green and gold (so we know who you’re barracking for)…

Treasurer Position

Dear Members,

The SRCC Committee is currently looking for a willing and able person to help us out by fulfilling the role of Treasurer. This is an important role for the club and we would really appreciate your help, so please have a think about the position and whether you could lend a hand.

  • This role can be adapted or further defined if necessary.

This is an opportunity to have your say on how the SRCC is run and introduce your ideas and thoughts into the mix, while fulfilling an invaluable position in the club.

Message from the president regarding the Edwardstown Club

Hello from the President,

As you may or may not be aware Edwardstown oval has recently undergone development and the project is due for completion shortly. The grand opening will be on Saturday the 13th of April at 11am-2pm. We will also be having our own AGM/Awards night on Friday the 12th of April at 7pm which gives us an opportunity to get into the new building to sample the new and exciting menu at Edwardstown club. I’m sure you are all as excited as I am to finally have a building we can call our own.

As part of using the new facility SRCC will be given discount/loyalty cards to hand out on behalf of the club. These cards will be given to each member and will carry benefits to the individual as well as SRCC.

The club will benefit by receiving a percentage of the profits for all transactions where you swipe your card. While you will receive very reasonable discounts on food and drinks. There are cheaper prices for affiliate clubs, but you will only receive it when you swipe your card.

As part of this new structure the club will need to forward the personal details of current playing members onto the site manager. This will link your card to the club so they can direct the profit percentage to SRCC. We will be handing over your name, date of birth, and email address. Some people may not be comfortable with this, so if you would like us not to forward your details to the new Edwardstown Club please let us know via our email southroadcc@gmail.com, or contact me on 0430021525 by 26/3/19

So help yourself, help the club, get a card, support SRCC, and get cheap top quality food and drinks at the same time.

Regards
Aaron Schmidt
