Debbie George and husband Jim will host nephew Costa Georgiadis this month – perhaps he will have time to catch a good sized whiting too! – Images by Brad Marsellos – ABC Wide Bay
At last month’s General Meeting, we were pleased to welcome Gympie Regional Council, Division 1 Councillor Mark McDonald as our guest speaker. He gave members an update on the Feasibility Study and progress to date regarding the Norman Point Jetty.
The proposed jetty would be approximately 180m long and 6m wide and would include a 28 m X 14m jetty head.
This jetty would provide an excellent facility for visitors of all ages, including people with disabilities, to enjoy the view, go fishing and experience what our area has to offer.
Members thanked Cr Mark and his wife Jill for their attendance and for his informative delivery to all present.
This month will be a very busy one for club members commencing with fishing training for youth week at Norman Point on Wednesday July 6 from 8am.
Being school holidays, our club members will be assisting young people how to tie knots, rig their rods and teach fishing techniques until 11.15am followed by a BBQ lunch.
The club members will be having a social fishing competition on July 10, commencing early morning and finishing by 4pm.
On Monday July 11, the club will be hosting ABC Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis who will be guest speaker at a Sailability function at the Cooloola Cove Veterans and Community Hall.
