Any constructive feed back would be most welcomed.


Departure Times

At times we have been getting an increased number of members and friends attending some of our outings, so in future, the departure time nominated on the program will be adhered to, so if you know you may be late ring the contact person to make suitable / alternative arrangements or you may be disappointed and turn up and no one will be at the club.

They are in 2 colours Maroon or Emerald Green, they are Bonds Penguin Polo sports shirts with the Club Logo embroidered on the pocket and are available at a cost of $20.00 (the club makes $1.85 on each shirt).

With the ever increasing cost of petrol if you share a car to get to and from a venue please make sure you compensate the driver accordingly.



Now we have moved into a more advanced world and you have an email address would you prefer that we send your program direct of the press to your computer. Robert has a record, can you advise him to enable him to keep this list current and up to date. I can assure you we will not sell you email address to other organisations.
