Earlier this week FM Igor Goldenberg put out an emergency call for volunteers at his beloved Elwood CC.
Igor tells me:
Currently Victor Kildisas and Yuri Kourtchatov do all the job of running the club. We need a tournament director, preferably a treasurer (the role I am filling at the moment). Ideally 5-6 people constantly involved in the running of the club. Other roles might include maintaining a web site [and] helping with organising Elwood Bendigo Bank championship. Once we covered basics we have plenty of things to make it even better. As I mentioned before, we have unique features (time, location) that make it very attractive for children and families.
While membership numbers are remaining steady, according to Igor, that situation could well quickly deteriorate unless extra volunteer hands are found. Help is urgently needed.
To that end, the Elwood guys are holding an emergency meeting of club members and other interested parties. Details are:
23 June at 2PM
87 Tennyson Street, Elwood

Established some 13 years ago, Elwood CC has met on Saturdays from noon to 5PM. They have an ideal location: close to the city, the beach, there's ample transport and the premises features an area for a BBQ as well as a playground.
