On Sunday, November 6, the Squadron held its annual working bee, with about 50 members participating.
Projects addressed included:
- landscaping and planting alongside the steps west of the club house
- general plant trimming
- scrubbing of the marina arms
- site preparation for the new Sailability & Dinghy Shed to the east of the maintenance yard
- re-siting of the shed in the corner of the maintenance yard
- club house window cleaning
- ramp cleaning
- marina electrical inspection
A huge well done and thank you to all who contributed your fantastic efforts on the day. Some special acknowledgements are worthy:
- Derrick and the Marina & Club House Subcommittee whose planning ensured the day went well and that all targets were achieved
- the very busy ladies who somehow managed to feed the masses a beautiful morning tea and a delicious lunch
- and where would we be without Mr Stumpy! Mr Stumpy brings and donates his truck and mulcher every year – and this year, he came back the following Sunday to grind down a number of stumps.
Our great marina and club house are now much more attractive for us all to enjoy.
