CHECK THIS OUT: SCK in the running to Win a Share of $6000

Telstra Stores Maroochydore, Sunshine Plaza and Noosa have presented Sunshine Coast Karate and two other local community groups with the opportunity to take part in their “Telstra’s Connected Community” initiative.

Throughout the period from Monday 7th May – Sunday 3rd June, members of the local community will be given the chance to go in-store and vote for their favourite sporting club.  The winner is determined by the highest number of votes.

During the summer months our main training space gets really hot without any cross ventilation.  Although we don’t mind training hard and sweating it out, if our club was to win the Telstra Connected Community prize, we’d be able to make it much more comfortable for all members who train in this space by installing a huge industrial fan.

Can our Sunshine Coast Karate community secure enough votes to win the major prize of $5,000 and install  a large industrial fan in the main training space?

Voting is under way and you can vote in-store at any of the following Telstra stores before Sunday 3rd June 2018.

  • Telstra Store Maroochydore, Opposite Coles – Shop123 / Sunshine Plaza, Horton Parade, Maroochydore, Q, 4558
  • Telstra Store Sunshine Plaza, Near Kmart – Shop 243 / Sunshine Plaza, Horton Parade, Maroochydore, Q, 4558
  • Telstra Store Noosa, Shop T1003/4 Noosa Civic Centre, 28 Eenie Creek Rd, Noosaville QLD 4566

Dojo Expansion Update

On the Labour Day public holiday Andrew Crocker (professional painter) lead Sensei Martin, Justin and Selina on a bit of a painting adventure.  An amazing job and done real quick. I believe Justin and Andrew also helped get the first pieces of the ceiling installed. Thanks guys and a big thank you to Senpai Matt who came in and helped prepare the upstairs ready for painting.

Mother’s Day was a massive day working on installing the ceiling and more cleaning.  Thanks to Rika Sensei and Richard for coming along and helping out.

This photo was taken late into the evening on Mother’s Day.  Since this photo was taken, the upstairs rooms and stairs have been carpeted and looks amazing.  You may have noticed that the Little Monkey’s Room and mailbox room has also been re-carpeted.

Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this project.  There have been many helping hands and support.  Thank you.  We can’t wait to share this space with students real soon.
