Sunday Snippet 11 Feb 2024

Welcome to this weeks, news and views from around the resort.

Dux & Drakes News

Friday wine tasting results

Oyster Bay can sometimes be difficult to purchase at a reasonable price so the bar is looking for a good back-stop Sauvignon Blanc.

Friday’s blind wine tasting yielded the following results:

1 Giesen - 33 points
#2 Stoneleigh  - 39 points
#3 Toi Toi - 53 points

Toi Toi was clearly a standout favourite, so Toi Toi will be purchased when Oyster Bay is hard to get.

Remember - If your coaster is damp, please don't throw it away, but rather than putting it in the basket, leave it on the bar to allow it to dry out.

New volunteers always welcome -

We have been offered the services of Carl Bedard a Senior Podiatrist, at Back In Motion, Bribie Island. The intention is that Carl will use the consult room and provide the podiatry service fortnightly. The service extends to Medicare patients with a care plan, My Aged Care clients, DVA beneficiaries, and NDIS participants. For private clients, a simple payment process can be established over the phone with their Bribie practice, allowing you to claim any applicable healthcare rebates using the provided receipt.

To allow for interest to be gauged, please complete the attached survey.

If you are a member of a couple, please submit the survey twice, this will ensure the results are an accurate reflection of interest. - Thank you

Would you be interested in having a Podiatrist attend ?

  • Yes I would use this service

  • No I'm not interested
