Clear­ing con­fu­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

A BIG thank you to the Gazette for pub­li­cis­ing our at­ti­tude to bu­reau­cratic ex­cess, al­though there ap­pears to be some con­fu­sion.

We can as­sure all po­ten­tial vol­un­teers that cur­rently there is no “51-page doc­u­ment” or “po­lice check” re­quired. We in­tend to keep it that way. We are in dis­cus­sions with the Depart­ment of Health and Age­ing and DOU­GLAS Net­ball would like to thank the fol­low­ing spon­sors for help­ing us out so far this year.

Sun Palm Ex­press and Co­ral Reef Coaches each pro­vide a bus ev­ery Tues­day to trans­port the ju­nior net­ballers from Moss­man to Port courts.

Af­ter the first week when we found we had more ju­niors than seats in the buses, Sun Palm came to the res­cue and with­out hes­i­ta­tion up­graded from a 22 to 36-seater to trans­port all the play­ers. With­out such fan­tas­tic lo­cal sup­port many ju­niors would not be able to play due to par­ents’ work sched­ules. A very big thank you. To can­teen con­venor Kerri Wil­liams and John Steven­son who pre­pare all of the won­der­ful home-cooked meals for our “Healthy Can­teen”, again we ap­pre­ci­ate your time and ef­fort in pro­vid­ing var­ied and nu­tri­tious de­lights each week.
