November Club Outing: Kids Christmas Party: Robelle Domain Parklands
First to arrive on the scene at 4.00am was Craig and Peter James to grab our rotunda for the day. One lady was walking around in circles confused at 7.00am wondering why there was no shade available – she should’ve arrived earlier.
When we arrived it was all hands on deck to help Robyn, Tammy and crew decorate and make the rotunda look Christmassy. When Charlie arrived at the meeting place he looked around and thought he might be the only one – lucky the other guys thought the same thing and then some more people turned up. All up there was about 30 members turn up for some fun for the day and about 14 kids.
Peter Smith had a challenge for the day. There was a bit of a water park at the park with a huge bucket which would fill up with water and then dump it out in one of two directions - with a good place for a ball to get stuck underneath it. So what do you do - you throw another ball up there so they both get stuck, luckily after some games were played by the kids. There were some lucky dip prizes on hand - which fortunately contained tennis balls - which were perfect for dislodging footyballs and soccer balls from high, out of reach places - well done Peter!
We put on our usual club lunch and due to the low numbers it was the club’s shout. Thanks to the usual crew who helped set up and cook and a few extras who pitched in this time. We had a game where the kids had to go searching for something on the ground. One of Gary’s grand-daughter’s along with Charlie saw me throwing out some extras for round 2 so walked along behind me picking them up to gain an extra prize – Good spotting there – good for a laugh. We started to pack up and our rotunda was claimed for the rest of the day - when we were half packed. The rain followed us home with just a couple of spots – so we were very lucky.
A great day was had by all and a lovely visit by Santa and his cupcakes (with his face was on them) were enjoyed as well. Thanks again to everyone who helped on the day and for those of you who turned up to make the day special for the kids in the club..
Cheers for now,
