END OF YEAR CELEBRATIONS ARE COMING

TRY THIS NEW SUMMER DRINK
APEROL SPRIZZ - SUMMER COCKTAIL
Our bar staff had a great training night on Monday night and have added a gem of a summer drink to their repertoire. Aperol Spritz is now available from the bar. This simple Italian cocktail is THE drink of summer. Aperol is an Italian aperitif similar to Campari but sweeter in taste. It has a relatively low alcohol content (11%) so perfect for warm summer afternoons.
Builder Colin and his team are still on schedule with paint work and installation of the bathrooms well under way. There may even be a surprise at the club on Friday.

Our amazing and talented bar tender Marc Lane is heading off to Canada in less than a week. He's having his last hoorah in Australia on Friday night. We'd love you too come down to celebrate his time at the club and wish him the best in his new adventure. Apparently his dad Phil will be down at the club providing the entertainment til late. The club takes no responsibilities for the Irish shenanigans that are likely to take place. See you all Friday.
Junior Nationals U14 Qualifiers
Congratulations to Shanelle Iaconi for making it through the try outs to the National U14 Championships. Great effort by Ksenija just missing out on advancing with a tough three set match in her round and to Luca Katsamakis for winning through to the third round.
I hope everyone is on top of their WBGT and Thermal Comfort Observations now. All I can say is thank goodness we have Ken Brown at our club to defer to. All I know is that it was very hot on Saturday but not quite hot enough to check my Thermal Comfort.
On a serious note: it is important that all players are aware of the heat rule and that if they are feeling any discomfort on the court they should not put themselves at risk and continue playing. Even young people can suffer heat stroke, a very serious and dangerous condition.

if the Ambient Temperature in the "temp" column is 38 C or greater or if the WBGT in the "shade" column is 34 C or greater play must be suspended.
