Sports Club Christmas Tree Decorating competition

Keep a lookout for this one.

With 6 weeks until Christmas and the Sports Club is currently gearing up for a big silly season.

As a part of this we have been invited to participate in the Sports Club CommuniTREE initiative – a Christmas tree decorating competition at the Club. The Sports Club is setting up 4 Christmas trees in the Club. Each of the sporting Clubs (WPHCCC, WPHCFC, Penno Demons & Greenway Giants) have invited to come and decorate a Christmas tree.

Each tree will then have a Perspex box placed in front of it. Starting on 1 December, Members will be issued a ticket when they buy something over the bar. Members will then vote for their favourite tree by placing their tickets in the barrels.

The tree with the most votes will win a $1000 donation and the 3 runners up will win a $500 donation from the Club.

We have been encouraged to be as creative as you like and ask that you incorporate a sprinkle of your sport into the theme.

More on this shortly but any support and every vote counts. Stay tuned.
