Some very sad news. The Springwood Country Club – Social Fishing is to be no more! Unfortunately, the Club will be dissolved in mid November after eight great years of mate-ship, socialising and helping the local community (and some fishing). The Club would sincerely like to thank the Springwood Country Club for rescuing us when the Winmalee Tavern terminated its sponsorship last year. The SCC has provided us with every opportunity for the Club to continue and we cannot thank them enough. Unfortunately, the Fishing Club has become operationally non-viable for various other reasons.

There is, however, some very good news as well. The Club has just donated another $2K to the Westmead Institute for Medical Research (to go to the Early Career Research Award for the fourth year running). This brings donations to our local community and other worthy causes to over $37K since 2011. The members are extremely proud of this achievement. Importantly, residual funds on hand when the Club is formally wound up in mid November, will also be donated to charity.

The Club will be holding one last raffle – on Friday 27th September 2019 – we hope to see you there at the SCC! There is also a couple more scheduled events on a calendar – which we will honour.

A HUGE thank you goes out to all our sponsors for their generous support which helped us create a club that was able to support its members and the community. We are confident the Club has left a legacy that will live on for many people.

Lastly, and very importantly, thanks goes to our members and patrons who supported by generously buying raffle tickets each week – without you, we would not have been able to donate to charities and worthy local causes.
