Here are some of the young helpers from KKC selling a sausage to a voter.
BIG THANK YOU TO ALL
According to the news today, it seems we didn't sell BBQ sausages. Apparently, today they're called "democracy sausages".
With apologies to Shakespeare however, a sausage by any other name tastes as sweet, and the support we got from IFK Australia members was very impressive, from members who turned up to help, and quite a few who turned up JUST to buy as sausage roll, including some friends who came ALL the way from Narrabeen! Well, apart from them, maybe the others also came to vote, but we'll pretend they came for us.
The turn-out was most gratifying. Thank you, again.
It's a VERY long list of helpers, but at the VERY top of the list is Anthony Zamattia who was the main mover-and-shaker for this event by a long shot, closely followed and supported by his family - Anita, Mia, and Gabriel.
Long lists of names in long running paragraphs are often difficult to read, so I'm putting all you awesome people into a table, so your name doesn't get lost .
All of the following people helped in SOME manner or other - either managing, making, selling, or spruiking (yes, I'm talking about you, Emmanuel !!!) some aspect of today's BBQ.

We may have the opportunity to do this all again in about 2 months time - we have a FEDERAL election looming too, possibly in May!
Let's hope though that they don't schedule it for the same weekend as our Kata Tournament, which is planned for the 26th of May, otherwise we might have to re-schedule it.
Can't leave you without another picture of the event - a couple of BBQers and the helpers in the background!
Keep training hard!
