Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings
The Glen Osmond Scout Group operates the sausage sizzle at Bunnings Mile End store
on the 3rd Monday of each month (set up at 8am, pack up at 4pm).
This is our major regular method of fund raising for the group.
We are always seeking volunteers to help operate this stall.
If you can offer even a couple of hours for a particular date, please contact us.
It is a good time to get to know other parents in the Group Community and talk through ideas that may benefit the Group.
The tasks don't require a lot of skill, but you have to be able to act as part of a team.
The preparation tasks are cutting up onions, separating sausages, building a seviette and slice of bread alternating stack on a tray, and getting a supply of clean hot water.
The cooking task is a careful scheduling one. Cooking sausages and onions to maintain a hot surply; never to cook to much at one time but also to never run out. The cook loads the cooked items onto the bread slices on its serviette held by the person who takes the order.
The order taker then puts the items on racks where the customers add their choice of sauces.
The last person handles the money and gets any cold drinks that are part of that order.
Hygiene is critical. Disposalble gloves must worn by all except the person that takes the money. The ideal team is 4 persons with 5 during the peak. The peak time is mostly between 11:30pm and 1:30pm, but the weather can significantly shift that pattern.
At the beginning of the day, there a reasonable amount of collecting supplies together and setting up of the stall to do. At the end of the day, there is the pack up and then cleaning of the stall to do before going home.
