People are keeping as busy as they can, but when I went to pick up my takeaway pasta at the Leagues Club last Wednesday I was surprised to find General Manager and ex chef Timbo Parsonage cooking it himself. ‘I’m buying the ingredients and cooking in between sending emails about fences and …’, he said, ‘I’m still trying to do what you’d call a normal everyday work day, but it’s pretty crazy, sometimes. I’m also trying to get rid of our tap beer, it won’t keep forever, so I’m offering growlers to people who want come out and fill up with beer. One bloke grabbed his growler and kept it in his hand, held side-on Dukes of Hazzard style, whilst simultaneously talking, sipping a beer and adjusting his mask. There are some great multi-tasking mentors on our management committee’.

Parsonage has been quite busy, considering that the dining room isn’t open, ‘I have to vet the campers, and the golf course has been really popular,’ and he has also been sprucing up the place in anticipation of the dining room reopening at some stage, as well as managing and cooking and serving takeaway. The Leagues Club is doing takeaway $12 pastas on Wednesday and Friday, with a dessert option of $5 crumble and a bit extra for garlic bread. Takeout starts from 4.30pm, with takeaway alcohol, and on Friday it’s the same as pasta night, but with some extras. 

To order phone Timbo on 6684 1400, but don’t forget to leave a message if he’s ‘busy’.
