Hello all again,

We held the interclub Bay Cruise Breakfast,and I have to say the event went down very well without a hitch. Thanks to
the teamwork it all fell into place, great work to all.

The anchorage is looking fantastic, the comments I received by our guests made me proud to be a part of our club.
There is some works to be carried out at the anchorage in the coming weeks, such as water tank underside beams side
flashing, and cabin lights etc, please assist our Rear Commodore Scott Barnard and Anchorage Captain Aaron Hutton in
their efforts to maintain your club, I’m sure they will give you a task that will take some of the burden of their shoulders,
and help achieve the goals set.

The next working bee will be advised in the next news letter thank you all again.

Till we next meet - Steve Fawcett

 Hello to all at the Anchorage.

 Well to kick off the new committee year it was great to see so many members step up and give a hand at the Interclub
 Bay Cruise breakfast on Saturday the 24-9-2011, it was a mission but with so many helping hands, it was enjoyable and
 every one had a great time. As this is my first time at organising the functions for the year I am open to any suggestions,
 Like any other committee member we are unable to do our role alone and the easiest way to achieve our goal is to all
 work together.

 On Saturday the 3rd of December I would like to hold the Adults Xmas Party - a Hot and Cold DISH NIGHT, we all bring
 a plate of hot or cold food and it will be set up as a smorgasbord. The hot and cold dish nights we have had in the past
 have all been a great success especially when you don’t know what you are going to eat. After dinner we will be having a
 Karaoke Night and a bit of laughter at each other. There is plenty of time to think of that surprise dish and maybe a song
 you can sing on the night.

 On the following morning Sunday December 4th, we will host Santa’s visit to The Anchorage. A party with games for the
 kids whilst they await Santa’s visit. So parents will need to RSVP on how many kids will be attending for catering purpos-
 es. Also a gift to the value of $10.00 pre-wrapped with each child’s name on it, will need to be given to me by 9am.

 Stay tuned to the future newsletter reports for more info.

Hi to one and all,

As most are aware the club held it’s AGM in early September and I was given the great honour an privilege of being the clubs
Rear Commodore for the 2011/2012 club year.

I would like to assure all members that I will be doing my utmost to continue to maintain the high standards observed by the
Rear Commodores before me. I will also be doing my absolute best to insure all works both big and small carried out on in or
around the Anchorage are carried out both professionally and efficiently with minimum cost and inconvenience to the club and
members alike.

While I hate to mention working bee in my first report we are planning a working bee on the 5/6 of November to finish off cabin
electrical, replace a rotten beam on high tank stand and finish flashing on the same as well as a generally prepare the Anchor-
age for what should be a hot summer season. I ask anyone who can spare even a few hours during that weekend to please
contact me so to insure your valuable time is used productively.

While on the Anchorage if any one has any problems with the Anchorage or it’s surrounds while there please feel free to
contact Anchorage Captain Aarron Hutton or my self so we can give it our attention. I believe it a great privilege to be helping
insure a strong exciting future for our club and look forward to enjoying a beer with you all soon.

 Hi everybody, we are back to arrange the seafaris for another year which I hope members will enjoy the cruising and
 company to be found in some varied destinations.

 Weather permitting I have planed for a seafari to Blaksleys Anchorage on north Stradbroke island on the 12th and 13th of
 November . I will take the BBQ to the beach for a BYO food and drinks dinner on Saturday evening, it will also be avail-
 able for breakfast on Sunday morning if required.

 I will be anchoring in Tiger Mullet on Friday night and leaving for Blaksleys at 9 am on Saturday morning, cruising at ap-
 prox 8 knots it will take somewhere around 2.5 hours, anybody who would like to follow I will monitor vhf 09 and 27 meg
 91 for the weekend.

 FYI - The beach at Blaksleys anchorage was formed approx thirty years ago when the sand mined steep dunes slipped
 into Moreton Bay, the sand mining company then planted gum trees to stabilize the foreshore, this is the only sandy
 beach between Canipa point and Dunwich which now has a lovely shady camping area.

 See you there,

Hello all, it appears that I am the booking officer for the next 12 months. Some of you may remember me from my days as
fishing captain some years ago, this was a very exciting time for fisherman, largely due to the dedication and hard work that
I put into this role, at times we had up to 2 members attending the fishing competitions, it was so nice to see my children
accepting the awards at trophy night, great memories indeed.

Given my commitment to the club over the years I was somewhat disappointed by the apparent lack of interest in having
me back on the committee, it would have been so nice to be nominated for SOMETHING at the recent AGM, anyway, rath-
er than take it to heart I nominated myself for this position, I am not sure who seconded my nomination but whomever you
are please don’t be too concerned as no one reads the AGM minutes anyway. Well, now to the business at hand, thought I
would kick off with a list of FAQ’s.

  Q. HOW DO I BOOK A CABIN?                                              Q. WHERE CAN I GET KEYS?
  A. The BEST way to do this is via email gcbcbookingofficer@            A. Keys can still be obtained from Gold Coast Boat Sales at
  yahoo.com.au this will get you the quickest response and can           Runaway Bay (thanks Paul) and Southside Marine wreckers at
  be used 24/7. SMS is sort of OK but remember to include your           Yatala, I will also have a set which can be picked up from my
  name in the text as I may not have your details in my phone            house at Cabbage Tree Point by prior arrangement, this may be
  address book. Lastly, you can give me a call on 0417 704 506,          handy for those of you who launch at Horizon Shores Marina.
  given that I don’t like phone calls this should be your last resort,   Please remember to return the keys as soon as possible.
  if you wanted phone service you should have voted for my wife
  as booking officer.                                                    Q. CAN I BOOK CABINS FOR MY NON MEMBER
  Q. HOW DO I PAY FOR MY CABIN?                                          A. If you are fortunate enough to have friends then it is only to
  A. The BEST way is direct payment into the GCBC account,               be expected that you would wish them to sample the luxury of
  details are as follows:                                                our waterfront accommodation, you should remember though,
  Heritage Building Society                                              that our club rules state that any non member (over 14 years

  Account # 009 074 120                                                  son per night,
  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU NOTE ON THE PAYMENT                          this would make the South cabin $25-00 per night for two

  NEEDS THIS INFORMATION!                                                Another
  As a last resort I will take the payment, however, if you wanted       couple of points to remember:
  someone to take cash you should have voted for my wife, she
  works in a bank.                                                       • The $5-00 fee also applies to camp sites.
                                                                         • A member must accompany the visitor.
  Q. WHEN SHOULD I PAY FOR MY CABIN?                                     • Overnight visitors are not permitted over the Easter break and
                                                                           19th December through to 8th January
  A. Payment should be made as soon as possible and preferably
  within a week of the booking date, the exception to this is Easter

TIPPLERS RALLY                     RALLY at GCCC HQ
                                   Monday 10th October, 2011: 12-1 pm
Feedback received is that GCCC are again voting to demolish the Tipplers Tavern building come Monday 10th October,
2011. Instead they plan to open the adjacent ‘ Tradewinds Building ’ as a licensed café, apparently only open on weekends.

  This is despite:
  • Overwhelming community sentiment calling for the refurbishment & reopening of the Tipplers Tavern building.
  • Recognised significance of ‘Tipplers’ as a core, ‘high priority’ component of our local tourism industry.
  • ‘Tipplers Tavern’ being a culturally and historically significant destination for residents of, and visitors to, South East
     Queensland .
  • ‘Tipplers Tavern’ being recognised as a destination that stimulates the economy of the local boating industry.

This is despite GCCC’s own community consultation for their plans only receiving support from 30% of their respondents…
and yet GCCC are advertising that they are ‘Getting on with the Job’. Does community sentiment count for nothing? Are
our Councillors exempt from operating within the Local Government Act?

“high standards about transparent decision-making, inclusive community consultation practices and Local Government per-
formance. Meaningful community engagement is now a key principle of governance in Queensland Local Governments.”

Also find attached independent ‘Tipplers Survey’ of 1627 respondents, with 94.3% of these (as of 6th October 2011) wanting
a “Commercial Hotel License/Barefoot Bar/Affordable Meals.” In contrast only 14.8% of respondents want a ‘Licensed Cafe/
Restaurant instead of a bar’ ie. Council’s plans. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MTS3BQM
