Sunday Snippet June 23 2024

Welcome to this week's news and views from around the resort.







Hi Everyone - Sue and I are back from our little jaunt to Iceland. Beautiful country, great to visit - not ever so sure that I would like to live there. If you do go, then make sure you have a beanie - it will be your best friend in Iceland. I can recommend our cruise company which was Norwegian Cruise Line. Almost as good as as Viking.

 

A gentle reminder to all residents that there is a 10 kph speed limit within the resort. Please abide by the limit and make sure that your visiting guests are aware of the speed limit. I'm not sure of the distance that each individual has to drive to get home in the resort, but say it is one kilometre. Driving at 10kph would take 6 minutes. Driving at 30kph would take 2 minutes. Do you really need to save yourself 4 minutes ???? The time saving is just 2 minutes if the distance is only 500 metres.

I hope my math is OK - happy to be corrected

 

Congrats to our bowlers who won the Gemstone Cup. We look forward to seeing them all representing Australia in the next Commonwealth Games.


 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 49ers

A great afternoon for all our residents born in '49 - one big birthday bash. Maybe someone will step up and organise a party for the 50ers next year.



 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT TRIVIA


Congratulations to General Knowledge winners Question Marks. A closely fought contest saw them win for the second time in a row by just one point. Motley Crew managed to win the Wooden Spoon spookily enough also by just one point. Many thanks to Kaylene and her band of helpers for running trivia, lucky door and raffle for the past two weeks - great job folks !!!!

The next trivia is on Thursday 27 June - Music Special Songs. If your team has one of the trophies remember to bring it with you.

 

STATE OF ORIGIN GAME II

The second SOO game will take place on Wednesday 26 June. This will be BYO drinks and nibbles. The game kicks off around 8pm (I think).

 

Our very own Singing Gems will be performing on Friday, in between the BIG raffle and Pie 'n Peas. Not to be missed. Make sure your pie orders are in nice and early.
