SAST Open Meet Catering

The club’s Open Meet takes place on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April.

The club provides catering for officials, coaches and volunteers and this is arranged by volunteers from within the club.  However, due to some of these volunteers being unavailable that weekend, I am appealing for the assistance of parents in helping cover the catering roles.

The club has all the catering equipment and also a well rehearsed catering plan for the two days – we just need people to turn that plan into food on a table!

If there is anyone within the club who would be willing to assist or knows of someone please let us know.  This role may appeal to people who work in the catering trade or have a interest in cooking. Assistance and advice from those who normally undertake this role will be provided in advance.

We are not providing Michelin star meals, but the in-house catering provision does allow us to keep costs down.  The alternative being the considerable cost of an outside catering company with this impacting on the overall profit made from the Meet.

As parents will know the Meets are one of the primary funding sources for the club in order to maintain affordable membership fees.

If anyone is willing to assist please get in touch with me asap at:

briananderson@southayrshireswim.co.uk

Thank you in anticipation

Brian Anderson, Club Chairperson
