News from the Club

Mothers Day
Mothers Day is Sunday 13th May. We will be having live music by 'Rattlesnake' from 1 – 5 pm.
Please feel free to come down and bring some lunch or nibbles to eat and take in the view and listen to the music.
Our cheese platters will also be on sale for $10.
Tech Night
Our next tech night will be Wednesday 16th May at 6 pm and it will be Wayne Hoey speaking about his and Barb's sailing adventures when they cruised to the Louisaides Archipelago.
This is a unique island region about 150 miles SE of Milne Bay PNG which had a lot of surprises and learning curves for them.
It sounds like an interesting night and if you wish to come please RSVP so we have the numbers for catering purposes.
End of Month Dinner
We are looking for someone to host the next end of month dinner which will be on Friday 25th May. If you are interested please contact myself at the club.
