Canteen assistance this weekend

On the 11th, 12th and 13th June 2016 the Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve is home to the Junior Country Soccer Championships tournament. Representative teams from Country Victoria will be playing all through those days, from areas such as Gippsland, Geelong, Sunraysia, Swan Hill, Moama, Shepparton, Albury Wodonga, Ballarat and our own Bendigo. Age groups are U12, U14 and U16 Boys and Girls will be on hand to via for the County Championship.

The Epsom Football Club have been offered the running of the main kiosk in the major pavilion for this event (canteen near the synthetic pitch). Therefore we are asking that all our junior teams supply two (2) parent helpers at the times allotted to your team (1 hour 30 minutes time slots only). Please note there will be two teams allocated to the one time slot, therefore providing 4 helpers at the one time slot (2 from each team). Whilst we understand some people may be away over this long weekend or organised other activities, we have kept to a minimum what we need and would think with our numerous junior teams we can cater for this event. Allocated time slots per team are listed below.
This is the only fundraising we will be doing with the junior part of the club for the season which is very reasonable. If teams want to even break it down to having 4 helpers to do 3/4 hour each that is fine, as long as the 1 1/2 hour time slots are covered per team.

Please also note due to Council's regulations we are not able to have children present in the canteen area, so if you could remind parents this it would be appreciated. The children can go into the function room area if needed or watch the soccer action on all the 6 pitches, just can't be seen in the canteen area. 

We are asking team managers/coaches to respond to us by Wednesday 8 June (at the latest), so please respond to your manager/coach by this weekend. Your help and co-operation with this tournament will be greatly appreciated by the club, and will help provide services and equipment, and keep our playing fees the lowest in Bendigo.  

The Club does have players selected to represent Bendigo, so it is a good chance to come along and support them as well.
