Family day  – Sun 12 Feb


Last year was our first family day and it was a roaring success, so we are doing it again on Sunday 12 February from 10am – 2pm.

The idea of the day is to bring down your own family and then any extended family you might like – grandparents, grand kids, brother, sister etc. and share our great club with them. You are also welcome to invite some friends to join us.

We will have some water based activities available like kayaks, Ozi Opti and Pacers to sail, fishing casting competition, swimming off the jetty, and just enjoying the location. Of course there are also the indoor activities upstairs like table tennis and foozball. A BBQ lunch will be available to purchase and the bar will be open from midday. Great live music will be provided by one of our favourite and popular performing groups ‘The Angelicats’ from 11am till 1pm.

Make sure you put the date in your diary and come along. Gold coin donation to help cover musician costs.
