MONTHLY APPRECIATION AWARD - OCTOBER 2022

Commencing from September, the club Committee has re-introduced the Monthly Appreciation Award in recognition of individual(s) who provide support/assistance, guidance and leadership in the operation of the club.

 

On this occasion for October, we recognise Gerry Van Der Meer for his workmanship in the preparation of the TV relocation. This entailed:

  • Inspection, structural analysis and draftsmanship of proposed wall prior to it’s dismantling

  • Assisted in the dismantling of the trophy cabinet

  • Available hands on to dismantle TV from original location

  • Built a new timber holder for TV remote and TV connection box

  • Built a frame on wheels to enable maneuverability of trophy cabinets

  • Always made himself available but Covid played it’s part in limiting Gerry

 

Without Gerry's initial inspection and structural analysis of the proposed wall, the project would have gone in blind to undertake the re-build.  Well done and thank you Gerry.
