Members Draw Continues to rise
Our Member's draw continues to rise after the latest winner was not here to claim their prize.
Member # 1452679 wasn't present when his number was drawn, so next week - September 7th, the prize will be $2,250.
Our Second Chance draw was claimed again this week - providing a 10,000 point bonus to another member who was still in the club at 8pm. This draw has been claimed every week since it's inception.
Indian Motorbike promotion and September RSL Rewards
The RSL Rewards promotion to win the Indian Scout motorcycle has been drawn.
Unfortunately, it wasn't won by a Caulfield member, but by Sandra M of Waverley RSL.
The September RSL Rewards promotion is a win for Footy Fans.
Simply swipe your card at the kiosk and when purchasing food and beverages on any finals match day (September 7,8,9 - in Week 1) and you can go in the draw to win one of 5 double passes to the AFL Grand Final.

Member's draw again unclaimed
Our weekly member's draw has been held, however the winner wasn't present to claim their prize.
Member 1395840 wasn't in the Club on Thursday 24th to claim her prize of $1,750.
Next week the cash draw hits $2,000.
Deb Goldsmith was the worthy recipient of the 10,000 RSL Rewards points at the 8pm Second Chance Draw.
Member's draw continues
The Member's draw didn't go off last night (17/8). Member number 1162231 wasn't here last night when his number was called out, so he missed out on $1,500.
So the draw will jackpot to $1,750 next week.
A system failure with the Kiosk meant members were not able to get their tickets for the Second Chance Draw, so the draw was not held this week. Apologies, but the kiosk fault was out of our control. The Second Chance Draw returns next week.
Art exhibition comes to the Caulfield RSL
A group of paintings by secondary school students will shortly be on display at the Club. The Harry Bell Memorial Art Competition encouraged secondary school students to learn about WW1 and create artworks on the theme - "Mates - the contribution of horse and rider in WW1". The winner of the competition will be announced from a field of 14 finalists aged 14 to 16. The first prize is a trip for 2 people - worth nearly $12,000 - to the centenary commemorations at Be'er Sheva in Israel in October.
The paintings will be hung in the Members Bar.
2nd Chance Draw
On Thursday nights we are now running a Second Chance draw.
Simply swipe your card between 4 and 8 pm on Thursday nights at the kiosk. You will receive a ticket, which you need to place in the barrel provided.
The winner will be drawn out at 8pm and will have 4 minutes to claim their prize - 10,000 RSL Rewards points - which is the equivalent of $100.
Points can be spent on food and beverages within the Club, or on a range of products from the RSL Rewards website - www.rslrewards.com.au
Every time you swipe your card during the month of August, also gives you one entry into their promotion to win a 2017 Indian Scout Motorcycle.
(Reward points may take up to 48 hours to be credited to your card)
You could win this motorcycle just by swiping your card!
During the month of August, you can go in the draw to win this 2017 burgundy red Indian Scout motorcycle in the statewide RSL Rewards monthly promotion.
Simply swipe your card at the kiosk and present it to staff every time you purchase food and beverages to enter.

Christmas in July
On Sunday 30th we had our Christmas in July luncheon. Around 100 guests enjoyed a 3 course meal, gifts from Santa and Christmas tunes on the piano from Phil Carroll. Thanks to the Staff and Committee members who made this a great day (and thanks Judy for the pictures).
.. and the jackpot continues ...
Another Thursday, and another member not present in the Club when their number was drawn. Member 1510007 wasn't present to hear his number drawn out and so misses out on the $6,000. So next Thursday, it jackpots to $6,250. The Dining room fills fast on Member night, so be sure to book a table early if you want to dine in.
Petula - from Downtown to Broadway
“‘Petula’ is essential theatre” is how former Nine broadcaster, Tony Porter, describes Petula: From Downtown to Broadway – A Tribute.
Petula Clark is so much more than the 60’s pop princess who sang ‘Downtown’. A career spanning more than 6 decades has seen her evolve from a child star during the 40’s and 50’s and singing sensation during the 60’s to star of Stage and Screen and, now in her 80’s, a concert performer who continues to deliver with passion and skill.
“This show has been a labour of love AND respect”, says Henshaw. “And I love getting to show the audiences the number of different languages that Petula sings in”.
14 months in the creation, the whole idea began when John Michael Howson suggested that Henshaw and Conyers should tackle a show about Petula Clark. “Hilary looks just like her at a stage in her career”, said John Michael to Conyers after a performance of their previous show, ‘Funny Ladies’.
Petula – A Tribute has already done a Victorian Tour and will leave for NSW in September, so the dates at the Caulfield RSL are your last opportunity to see the show in 2017.
There are 2 shows - Monday 7th August @ midday and Monday 14th August - Doors open at 6pm, show from 7.30pm.
To find out more and to book tickets click here.
Parma, Pot (or a glass of plonk) and Phil's Honky Stomp

Our regular Tuesday night entertainment features QuizzaMe - a fun and fast paced quiz night. On Tuesday 25th July, we are hosting Quizmas in July, with a selection (but not all) of the questions having a Christmas theme.
If you haven't played QuizzaMe before - here's what you'll need to know:
There's no need for pens, paper and writing down your answers. With QuizzaMe, each team is given a wireless buzzer with A - E on it, a question is shown on the screen, and there are five possible answers. The timer starts and each team locks in their answer using their buzzer.
All the questions are randomly selected by the QuizzaMe super computer and the questions are from a huge range of categories including music, science, history, sport, literature, entertainment, art and general knowledge. There are video, picture and audio questions, and built in sound-effects and graphics. You'll get instant feedback with the right answer shown after every question and with the excitement of real time live score updates you will feel like you are in your very own game show!
Your knowledge doesn’t have to be at genius level to succeed at QuizzaMe. Being quick on the buzzer, working as a team and the boldness to win bonus for you team could quickly see you conquer the scoreboard and finish champions!
Member's draw jackpots again!
On Thursday, member number 1391126 was drawn out in our weekly member's draw.

My Brother Jack Awards
Each Year the Glen Eira Council organises and runs the ' My Brother Jack' awards, named after the award winning book by Jack Johnson written about life in Caulfield between the wars, and a fictional family living in Kooyong Road adjacent to the (then) Caulfield Military Hospital.
The book is of particular interest to this subbranch as many of the characters are based on World War I veterans, some of whom could have been members of the subbranch. Caulfield along with Bentleigh Sub Branch sponsors the prizes in the competition.
The winner this year was Anthony Carr for his short story The Mid-way Chair.
Congratulations to Anthony and all the other entrants for taking the time to compose a short story and enter the competition. A copy of the story and details of the other entrants and winners are available on the Glen Eira Council website, at the following link
