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.

POSTSCRIPT: WE ARE SEEKING A LARGE SHIFTING SPANNER (at least 1.5″) FOR THE CLUB BOAT

IF YOU HAVE A SPARE YOU CAN DONATE, PLEASE CONTACT ALLEN GARRETT
