P&F News and Events Week 8 Term 4

As this is our last P&F Blog for the year, a very big heart felt thank you is extended to everyone that has helped make all of the P&F events and activities in 2016 a huge success.

The fun doesn’t stop here however, see below for information on the upcoming T20 Big Bash Cricket Boys Day Out on Friday, January 1, 2017 – book your tickets NOW, and information for those people lucky enough to get tickets to the first ATC Cultural Boys Day Out (sold out) to go to Cirque Du Soleil on November 29.

Christmas Party for Staff

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered both their time and resources to next week’s staff Xmas Lunch. We have had a tremendous response and have almost raised enough money to cover the lunch, with almost all volunteer shifts filled. If you’d still like to donate, please see the links below:

Annual Planning Day

Last Sunday saw an enthusiastic group of P&F committee members gather for our annual planning day. Much was discussed and our events planned. Please see the attached document with the P&F meeting dates for 2017. If you would like to be more actively involved in P&F events for 2017, please email Sam at

Cirque Du Soleil

This event on Tuesday 29 November is sold out. For all those attendees who have booked tickets, an email has been sent to you about picking up tickets and the meeting information.
Organisers are expecting congestion, so please arrive early to give yourself enough time to arrive in traffic and find a park.

Meeting point and time: 7.30 pm inside the Grand Chapiteau, Skygate DFO. Please note: Carpark opens at 7.15 pm – parking has a cost – bring cash. Please allow enough time for traffic congestion to meet at 7.30pm.

For those who have paid for the whole package – the extras will be available at 7.30 pm at our ATC meeting point. For further information go to the Skygate website. If you have any questions, please contact Andrea on 0400304992 or Natalie on 0414610087.

T20 Big Bash Cricket Boys Day Out

Another great Boys Day Out event has been organised for the Brisbane Heat game against the Melbourne Renegades on Friday 20 January 2017 at the Gabba at 6.40pm. As there are no weekend games at the Gabba this season, we have chosen this game as hopefully most people will be back from holidays and it’s close to our very own ATC cricket season. We will meet at 6.15pm close to the ground (more information to follow) so we can go in as a group but no pizza/drink package is on offer this time due to time constraints and work commitments. The famous BDO cap is still available for purchase. Bookings close Friday 6 January. Tickets and ticket packages (ticket with cap) can be purchased at the following link: Any questions please contact Andrea McAvoy at or 0400304992.
