We had our inaugural Club Bingo Night last Saturday night at the Lone Pine Tavern. The night started off on a huge high with the Matilda's winning against France in a penalty shoot out which delayed the start of the bingo but overall the night was a huge success with plenty of fun, laughs and amazing prizes won. Huge thank you goes out to our Bingo Queen, Monica Jurd for hosting the bingo night and we thank all club members who made a night of it, we hope you had a great night and we're looking forward to the Bingo Night returning next year.

2024 COMMITTEE POSITIONS AVAILABLE
All Minchinbury Jets SC committee positions will be available at the end of the 2023 season, ready for the commencement of the 2024 season!!
We are seeking more people to volunteer and join our committee in 2024 to assist us in running our Club, as the more hands, makes light work.
We know everyone is busy with their work and family life however if you've got a few hours to spare each week to help the Club each weekend with setup, pack up or in the canteen that's all we're asking for, it's not a huge commitment. We have a Committee meeting once a month too.
For anyone interested in volunteering in giving back to the community and supporting our Club, please submit your expression of interest via this form https://forms.gle/tEMKDnQzj8kkB1ZH9 or speak to one of our current committee members for more details.
