Special General Meeting – Thursday 14th March @ 7.15pm

As previously announced a Special General Meeting has been called for this Thursday evening (14thMarch) @ 7.15pm.  The purpose of this meeting is to seek approval for a Club Constitution amendment to allow current Life Members to also nominate candidates for Life Membership.  Currently, the Constitution only allows for Medallion Holders to nominate candidates.  Your attendance at this meeting is keenly sought so that we can pass this important resolution.

To coincide with this we will also be holding the Members’ Draw as well as the popular Members’ Schnitzel night.  ‘Schnittas’ are $12 (plus sauce) for Adults & $6 for Kids (incl a drink).  We will not be taking Bookings on the night, rather it will be on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Sand Carting Update

Following from the weekend’s issues with the Sand Carting process that impacted on the Club’s & the General Public’s use of the beach directly in front of the Surf Club, we have spoken with the Coastal Management Branch of the Department of Environment & Water.  We have requested the following:

  • An intended ‘dig free’ zone south of the boat ramp.   
  • Appropriate signage to be used where possible to identify areas impacted by the digging & carting of Sand.
  • Sand Piling to be ‘roped off’ where practicable, to minimise the likelihood of sand movement impacting on access & egress to the beach via the Boat ramp.  We have also requested that Sand Piling be minimised from Friday afternoon until Monday morning.
  • A regular weekly update between the Department & the Club on excavations that may or may not impact on both Club activities & the use of the beach by the General Public.

We were informed that due to equipment malfunction on Friday afternoon of last week, sand piling was impacted and it is not the intention of the Department that this quantity of sand is to remain on weekends.  The sand carting operations are expected to continue for a further 2 weeks.
