A few highlights since our 50Th Anniversary (2009)
Alan Beveridge is still the President! The “Tower” is no more – council is building their own tower, ours was dismantled (not considered safe due to rust etc). Over the last couple of years, we have been doing renovations to the building, gym has been updated, toilets completely redone, rooms removed/updated, glass doors inserted in the auditorium. This is ongoing as we rely on grants to undertake works.We received a grant of $350K in 2017, this is being used to extend the Gear shed and create an alfresco area on the Eastern side of the building (yet to be completed) Recently we were advised we received another grant ($199K), this is for the North Eastern part of the building, we will be extending outwards to setup a café/Kiosk area and renovate office, bar area. A few years ago, we purchased a Kubota Tractor to tow the patrol & boat trailer, this has allowed us to extend the life span of our ATV.Membership wise, we went into a bit of a decline, however have now picked up (did have 12 patrols, went down to 9 patrols – starting to pick up again.
Over the past 2-3 seasons we have had a big increase in our Nippers.Competition: we were the Country Champions at the State Nippers Titles held 2-3 March 2019, finished 13th overall (43 competitors from WBP), at the Country Titles (61 competitors from WBP) we finished 3rd and we have won the overall Branch titles for the past several seasons, we only have one boat crew competing this season.Renovation PhotosAdditional information regarding the Anniversary weekendA form for booking tables/seats on the Saturday Night, (we are limited to 220 guests) will be sent out of place don our web page, also we will have T Shirt’s M/F that can be orderedIf you know of any old members or friends who we may have missed, can you please pass et them know.
