20th Dinner Volunteers - Bar and Setup
Hope everyone has had a school holidays full of adventures. We have seen an unprecedented number of people heading to our beach this school holidays. The conditions have been spectacular with a lot of marine life.
This season we will put together in the weekly update all of the information from Branch and Surf Life Saving Queensland so that you need to look only at 1 place for the required information. Let us know how it is going - we know a lot of emails come out weekly from the different areas and we want to reduce the communication overload.

MOTOR SHOW UPDATE
The motorshow was a roaring success. Thank you to all of the volunteers who came to lend a hand flip a sausage. This year we have made approx $3,500. It was great to see so many entries and people coming through the gate. We would like to thank the Mackay Rod and Custom Car Club for inviting us along. The Club has had a long standing relationship with the Mackay Rod and Custom Car Club and we are grateful for their support in enabling us to be able to fundraise efficiently.
With the new season quickly approaching it is time to commence planning for the season and working out the Club priorities. This season we will be running the Club planning day slightly differently with dedicated sessions on the 3 main areas impacting the Club. By running the planning workshops separately, we are hoping that we can focus on key areas and people who are interested in specific topics will be able to attend those sessions. This is your chance to have input in how an area of the club works. The sessions will be scheduled based on peoples preference and availability – as much as we can accommodate.
Junior Activities Planning Session has been scheduled for Monday 17/07 at 6.30pm
The dates for the other 2 sessions is still to be set. If you want to be involved register your interest here: Please respond at: https://www.surveyhero.com/c/x3yzxevc

The Club runs the Meat Tray Raffle every second Friday night and the Goose at the Northern Beaches Bowls Club. These raffles are perfect for the kids to be involved with - practical maths and communication skills!
If every family takes one slot it makes for an easy and quick fundraiser for the Club. We make on average $200 each time we run a meat tray at the Club and the Goose at Northern Beaches Bowls Club can be more lucrative!
