December is here, slowly thawing from another winterís chill. A big welcome to our new members, any of who require a bit of tuition on launching or general Boating, feel free to give me a call.

November has bought an increase in water temperature, thus the snapper are on the chew. Gummy Shark catches have been good and be on the lookout as Kingfish look like making an early arrival. November is also the start of our Membership Renewals for 2017/2018 Season.

To our committee members Col, Jan, Tash, Mike, Andrew and Jason, a very big thank you for your all your continued hard work and commitment.

A club with over four hundred and forty members is challenging and support on the committee from a couple of talented members would be greatly appreciated. I would like to thank Pete (Hodgie) for continuing as Fishing Director, for organizing our Fishing Competitions, Trophies and Prizes for Presentation night. To our members Rob, Plugga, Bill, Macka, Vossy and others who help to keep our club going. Thanks to all.

T.A.C has continued to keep our yearly balance in the black, showing a small profit in a year where services continue to rise. Our Investments Portfolio has increased slightly, which keeps us in good stead for our next generation of enthusiastic fisherman.

Our Christmas party complete with jumping castle, face painting, Christmas stockings for the kids, a rose for the mumís washing up for the dads is Sunday December the 10th. The AGM is scheduled for Sunday January 14th.

Cheers to all,

The Commodore
