CSC Bunkum # 1 2018 - Pre-season Work Party and general info

February 12, 2018


Happy New Year Christianians!  I hope you’ve had, or are having, a great summer.  A bit early to be thinking about snow, I know, but a couple of pieces of important information for you.

The 2018 pre-season “Provisions” work party is set for Saturday & Sunday, March 10 & 11.  This is earlier than normal due to the limited availability of the all-important RAL front end loader. This work party is ideally suited for Junior members of all ages; we clean out the pantry, replenish it with the latest and greatest, stack a heap of fire wood, clean and paint. It would be great to see some of our newer families come and lend a hand and find out how the provisioning logistics work.  Plus it exempts you from the Work Party levy in your annual subs – a saving of $160 per senior member.  If you can attend this work party, or have any queries, please contact me at  

The 2017 Christiania AGM and Prize-giving was held in November last year – minutes are available at  At the meeting a small increase in club fees was agreed to:

• Annual subscription for senior members: $170 (last year $160)

• Annual subscription for junior members: $50 (unchanged)

• Annual subscription for associate members: $35 (unchanged)

• Work party levy: $160 (last year $150), this applies to senior members and life-subscription members if the member does not attend a committee-approved work party or equivalent event.

The club committee remains the same with a couple of additions – Rachel Ward is our new club secretary and Mark Farrell joins the general committee.  Welcome aboard, Rachel and Mark – we appreciate your commitment to the club and look forward to working with you.  The committee meets for the first time on February 26 to prepare for the 2018 season.

Invoicing for subs will occur in early April.  If you’re aware of any changes to your membership status, please let me know at as soon as possible – it saves a lot of time and effort if changes are communicated before invoicing …
