BAREFOOT BOWLS SHARED WITH THE RECREATION VEHICLE FELLOWSHIP OF ROTARIANS.
Tonight we were joined by 36 visiting Rotarians from clubs through Australia with a common interest in recreational vehicles. Our members tested their skills on the top green with a friendly game of lawn bowls with our visitors. Though bowling technique ranged from beginner to championship level much fun was had and novelty prizes were awarded throughout the night of competition. Secretary Don organised the teams and announced the random competitive events throughout the game. VP John made sure that our visitors were well cared for in the traditional friendly and social manner characteristic of our club. Community Service Director Chris managed an expert team of cooks and caterers preparing our barbeque dinner which followed the bowls. Recreation Vehicles is one of 40 Rotary fellowships open to membership by any Rotarian. I have listed these separately on pages 2 and 3. You may obtain information about any fellowship by clicking on the title. Try beer or whisky. Rotary insurance covers Rotarians whilst involved in planned and authorised fellowship programs. I am not certain how it works with the beer and whisky groups.

SECRETARY’S NOTE. The Rotary Christmas Party on Thursday 13 December 2018 will be our last formal meeting for the year. Our Club will recess over the Christmas / New Year period. Our first meeting in the New Year will be Thursday 10 January 2019 in the Crows Nest Room. Australia Day is fast approaching and with the break in meetings it is important to begin preparation of the work roster. This will be quite a difficult task this year with now, three Rotarians, Warwick Mathieson, Helen Ryan and Tricia Parnell and their partners unavailable to be placed on the Rotary roster during the day and Geoff Diemar seconded for part of the day by the Australia Day committee for traffic duties. In addition President Kathy will be on duty as Ambassador for Port Stephens and some of our members are able to work for a short period only and some can undertake only light duties. At next week’s meeting I will seek information about members who will not be available for the roster or those who will be available for restricted duties or time. The roster will operate from 7.00am to 5.00pm and there will be other duties needing to be completed prior to the day and possibly afterwards. If you will not be at Rotary next week please let me know by email or phone details of your non-availability. Bunnings Barbeques will continue during our recess period. Tony Todd had prepared the rosters published below. These events will be quite busy and it is important that all attend rostered duties promptly. If a difficulty with attendance arises please attempt to engage a substitute and notify Tony of the change.
Family Night – Thursday 6/12/2018. This is a special night our club is catering for Bunnings staff and customers. As it clashes with our AGM we have several volunteers helping out. Helpers: Scott Morrison, Claire Morrison, Fiona Whatham, Yvonne Stuhmcke, Tony Todd, David Clark.
