Multicultural Festival – 15-17th February

For those of you who don’t regularly log onto the forums this year’s annual fundraiser for the club, the National Multicultural Festival is on in a few weeks from the 15-17th February. We still need volunteers to help on many of the shifts. So if you are available for the weekend, log onto the forum and put yourself down for at least a shift or two, to help us out. Remember this is how we can subsidise our Gorman meeting venue and other events throughout the year, so make sure you do you bit to help out! Everyone who participates will get a Canberra Brewers Multicultural T-Shirt.

To allow for the T-shirts to be printed, the last call for T-shirt sizes will be this Friday 1st of February. Some extras will be ordered but first in best dressed.
