Spring Open

Dear Members,
Thank you to the brave souls who have embraced our new kitchen rota system by putting in their names without knowing when they are playing. It works just like tennis - you commit to it, you find you can't do it, you get a replacement. Easy peasy! The kitchen committee consists of 5 people - they have now put their names into 18 slots in total, and may also have to find replacements if their games clash with their slots. There are many slots still to be filled - we need your commitment please! The success of the kitchen relies on every member's willingness to help. For any new members who would like to help out but feel they wouldn't know what to do, the person you are taking over from will explain whatever is needed and you will also most likely be on duty with an experienced member. And your help would be most welcome.
 
Regarding the supply of homemade food for the kitchen, we have had to put up a new sheet where you put your name under cake/salad/soup/bread on a specific day. Apologies for the change but it actually makes no difference to you - anyone who had already put their name down has been contacted and their name is now on the new sheet on the agreed day. Again, we need your commitment and support for this please. You can contact any member of the Kitchen Committee if you are not in the club over the next few days but would like to make something, and we will write your name on the list.
 
The soup is a new item on the menu, so we are going to see how it goes on the first three days, and depending on it's success, we may look for more people to make soup during the week.
 
Finally, to those of you with a tubber-ware addiction.......... Last year the kitchen committee bought 10-12 plastic food storage boxes to reduce the use of clingfilm (one of the Green Team's admirable efforts), but during the kitchen clear out recently, we discovered that all except one of those boxes had disappeared. We went and bought more, and already several of those have also disappeared! If you simply have to borrow one from the kitchen, please return it asap, but ideally, items should not be removed from the kitchen at all (except tea-towels to be washed - this special privilege is available to everyone!)
 Thank you for your ongoing support.
 The Kitchen Committee
(Aoife, Mary M, Tom, Kasha, Sylvia)
