  • This Edition
    Monahan Centre

    Over the last few month's a small team consisting of our Building Committee Chair (Chris Harper), Fundraising Committee Chair (Ivan St Clair), Honorary Legal Advisor (Tony Greenaway - Partner at Gadens Lawyers) and myself have been working on the transfer of land from the Borough of Queenscliffe.

    Although the 'good news' came through back in April / May, it has taken quite some time and a lot of effort to ensure that we will have something that will last for many generations and not lead to any issues for our members in the future.

    I am hoping that we will have a major announcement on this important matter at our Inaugural Season Opening function, to be held at the Monahan Centre Queenscliff on the evening of Saturday 21 November. See link below for more information on this function.

    The Club was a hive of activity over the Melbourne Cup Long Weekend, with the completion of the Cert IV T&A course (see Facebook for the group pic), the Annual Workingbee (thanks Property team - Andrew MacLeod, Mandy Grbac and Huw Joyce and all the helpers - Ivan St.Clair, Lou & Michael Read, Jay Epstein, Steve Woodfull, Alan & Huw Joyce, Murray Keeble, Justine (Bim) Kiely-Scott, Eliza Scott, Kae Tayler-Morton, Michael & Emily Limb, Amanda & Chris Harper, Simon McPhail, Paul Doman, Ruby Kennett, Scarlett Meadows, Andy Kidd, Rowena Pote, Shane Woodman, Jeanine & Juliet Froomes, and Emma Preston), the first Stingers training session and senior sports training sessions !

    This month the Annual Skills Maintenance sessions (Requals) recommence. This is an important task for our active members to undertake each year before December 31, so please visit our Website and go to the 'Education' tab, then to ''Skills Maintenance (Requals)'.

    Preparations for the 28th Rip View Swim Classic (Sunday 3rd January) are progressing very well.
    Online registrations opened during the Long Weekend as usual - 0700 Sunday morning for the keen ones !
    The RVSC website has been updated for this year's event, so please use your networks to promote this great day for the Club and Point Lonsdale, which is our largest annual fundraising event !

    Finally, on the 31st October applications for the Cadet and Bronze Camp closed. We have had an overwhelming response with numbers way up on last year. There is some more information on the next steps for applicants on our Facebook / Twitter and on the Education page of the Club Website.
