As the cold weather sinks in the Surf Club has probably slipped to the back of many peoples minds but things are still happening. Your board met for a sunny Sunday strategic planning afternoon a couple of weeks ago so we could start putting things in place for next season. We’ve also been planning for our upcoming presentation night on Saturday 23rd of June and our AGM on Sunday the 8th of July. You should also have received a survey regarding memberships, please take the time to complete it – it’s your club and we want you to have a say in how we operate. A few people who hold positions in the club are unable to commit to these roles again next season so keep an eye out and we’ll post details so you can consider how you might be able to contribute to our club, all board positions will be open for nomination as usual.
The Shed Bar
For those of you who haven’t been down we’ve got a cozy little bar running in the shed on Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm and Saturday and Sunday from 4pm (earlier some days – see below). Drinks are cheap, we usually put out a few bar snacks and we’ve got a bit of carpet and some heating. I counted 36 customers on a recent Thursday evening and while we were near capacity there was still enough room to mingle and chat – if the roller door is down to keep a southerly out enter from the side door. Just a good place to catch up with colleagues from the club and other friends. Many thanks to Lyle, Freaky, Greg, Patrick and Sean for their tireless bar duties.
This Saturday we will have the Power V Gold Coast game on the big screen with the Shed open from 2:00pm, a limited range of hot food will be available and we might even organize some competitions to add a bit of interest.
Meantime, another great footy tipping competition thanks to Chris Mahney, good luck to those involved and good to see some new names on the leader board.
We’re past the halfway point in our club rebuild now and everything is on track to have the keys in hand by early to mid August. It will take us a couple of weeks to get up and running from then as we move everything back in, work out where furniture etc will go, re stock the kitchen and bar and dozens of other little jobs. The place has been gutted and our 1st fix electrical and plumbing are done, beams are going up, walls and ceilings are going up the stairs are gone and so are a lot of wall spans, below are a few snaps to give you an idea of how things will look.
Keep warm and stay safe,
