Winter is coming
And despite all the rain, there’s a lot to look forward to here at Caboolture Sports Club!
After some of the most challenging months I can recall, things are finally starting to return to normal and I am very excited about the future.
Here are some of the highlights this season!
Kambosos Jr vs Haney – World Lightweight Unification Fight
Australia’s very own world champion Ferocious George Kambosos is putting his three belts on the line against the WBC champion Devin Haney. It’s arguably the most significant boxing event to be held on Australian soil this century. Not only are we showing it live from 11am on Sunday 5th June, but we’re also giving away tickets to see Australia’s best two heavyweights, Justis Huni vs Joseph Goodall, on 15th June at Nissan Arena. If that wasn’t enough, there will be knockout deals on pizza paddles, hot wings and more. Plus, our good mates from Blackflag Brewing will be onsite to showcase some of their current range.
Food and Beverage
Each season we change up our cocktail menu and I’m especially excited about what we’ll be offering in winter. The photos look amazing and the drinks taste just as good. Our new range of cocktails will be available from Friday 3rd of June.
Also on the 3rd of June, the team at The Mill Restaurant will unveil the new Farm to Table menu. Each month our chefs work with local suppliers to come up with specials that showcase ingredients from the region. Keep an eye out for the Wild Mushroom Gnocchi, Grilled Lamb Medallions and more. They will only be available for a few short weeks so I suggest you come in early to take advantage and try them all.
Another new addition this season, be sure to check out the Malteser-verse of Madness hot chocolate special and the Blue (da ba dee) thickshake with white chocolate and fairy floss at the Laneway Café. They are both amazing.
You may have noticed we recently updated our weekly promotions and the feedback has been very encouraging. There are giveaways every day of the week (sometimes more than one) and the best part is you can be a winner just by turning up. The range of promotions available now offers something for everyone. We have board games, wheel games, lucky key and envelope games, a pick your own prize game, a hot seat game, a virtual horserace and quite possibly the simplest quiz on the planet. You can learn more about all our weekly promotions here. And remember to always use your membership card while at Caboolture Sports Club because you’ll often be earning entries in more than one promotion at the same time!
We have three major promotion draws coming up in winter. Entries into The Watch (drawn 19th June) have already commenced. Members can pick up free entries every day just by swiping your membership card in our Diamond Rewards Kiosks and bonus entries when you use your card with purchases or while playing the gaming machines. We ran a very similar draw in May and a third of the winners successfully claimed the top prize of $2,000 each! Then we step it up even further with a $15,000 Guaranteed Giveaway in July followed by Another $15,000 Guaranteed Giveaway in August. You can pick up free entries with every visit and each one is an extra chance to share in the cash.
We’re introducing a brand new country music feature band to our regular lineup starting with The Hicks on Saturday 4th June. They will be followed by the Whiskey Mountain Boys on 23rd July and SaltbushSix are coming in on 13th August. If country music is your thing, then definitely keep an eye out for our new Caboolture Country shows each month.
Our free tribute shows over winter will be Boombox 80s on 11th June, Sirocco: The Australian Crawl and James Reyne Show on 16th July and The Shania Twain! Show on 6th August. And our themed Friday Feels parties will be Feels Like K-Pop on 24th June, Feels Like Girl Power on 29th July and Feels Like Getting Noughty on 26th August.
We have some great value ticketed shows coming up too.
Once a month, comedian Mike Van Acker hosts a themed trivia night with prizes for winners, lucky door and most passionate fan. On Friday 10th June the topic is Matt Groening Cartoons (the Simpsons, Futurama and Disenchantment). After more than three decades of redefining prime time television, you probably already know more about this cultural phenomenon than you realise, but even if you don’t, these nights are a lot of fun so get a team together or come on your own and make some new friends. These shows tend to sell out ahead of time so don’t delay getting your tickets – available here for just $10.
The Sit Down Comedy Club is also returning with another double-header on 22nd July. The two feature performers this time will be the hilarious Fiona McGary and Lindsay Webb. Tickets are already selling fast so secure yours now.
And something for the ladies, on Friday 12th of August we have the Girls Night Out, a comedy hypnosis show with Wayne Donnelly – where comedy meets hypnotism meets Magic Mike. What happens when you mix comedy hypnosis with a hen’s party? Mayhem! You’ll ugly cry with laughter and cough on your cocktails as Wayne makes his willing volunteers do some highly unusual stunts! Keep an eye out for tickets which will be available very soon.
While all this sounds like a lot, it’s really just a taste of what we have in store for members at Caboolture Sports Club this winter.
For all the latest, keep checking the website. Or better yet, call into the club and see for yourself.
I look forward to seeing you here!
