THREE competitions in the Craft and Cookery section of Woolorama are in jeopardy for lack of a head steward.
Head stewards are responsible for each competition held during Woolorama and this voluntary position can be very rewarding and personally satisfying.
The head stewards are required to plan the classes for competition which has already been done, approach sponsors, a task which has also already been done, and administer the competition.
Much of the paperwork is supplied by the Secretary, so the task is not large or onerous.
The Secretary is in charge of receiving all entries and inviting the judges.
The competitors bring their produce and craft articles, with the steward facilitating the judging and displaying the work for the appreciation of Woolorama patrons.
The time commitment required is about 3-5 hours on the Thursday before Woolorama, when the steward presents the classes to the judge for deliberation.
Another two hours is required on the Saturday afternoon of Woolorama when the exhibitors come to collect their entries and take them home.
All prize money is calculated and administered by the Secretary’s office.
Ideally a person with a passion in the craft and cookery areas is sought, but this is not a prerequisite.
Someone with very moderate skills could undertake the role, for it is largely administrative.
Help is available to ease a new person into being the head steward.
The three sections without a head steward are Fruits and Preserves, Craft and One Person’s Work.
If you want a rewarding job which will help make Woolorama its usual success, please contact the Secretary before 31st October 31.
