This month we welcome some new members being, Bob Kirkright, Ross Powell, and Greg Kranz., please introduce yourselves and make them feel at home when you meet them. This brings our band of merry wood butchers to 51. Probably near capacity.
The final piece of our Grant Puzzle was completed with the installation of our new and brilliant Drum Sander.
Our valiant Vice President Bernie Day assembling the new Drum Sander, note the careful unbalanced stance and position of the tongue as he inserts a particularly difficult bolt!
The old Drum Sander was donated to the new Ashmore Men’s Shed whose members gratefully collected it. The old wood lathe is still unclaimed if any member is interested in owning it. Now it’s time to start thinking about the next Grant Application!
Our highly competitive Golf Day was held and amazingly, it was won by Keith Browning (and not Warren!) I was unfortunately unable to attend, but I understand the day was a great success and enjoyed by all. Thank you to Jeremy White and Keith Fraser for doing a great job in organising the day, and compiling the results.
Our next sporting event is the Barefoot Bowls morning to be held on Friday, 20th September 10am. This will include lunch at the Bowls Club. If interested in attending, please put your name on the nomination sheet in place on the notice board.
I am pleased to see the pen making activity is continuing at a rapid pace. I suspect there are more wood pens on the mountain than the ubiquitous National Bank Biros!
We had our grand Possum Box presentation with the first 8 units going to the Convention Centre on Beacon Rd, Peter Huthnance and his helper Bob Kirkright have been busy knocking these up, with eight to go, and some Butterfly Boxes to complete the project.
Jobs coming up include activity boards for Alzheimer sufferer’s at Roslind Lodge, and stage scenery for the St Bernards State School presentation of Lion King. If you are interested in helping out with these community projects, please let me know.
We had a great day at Bunnings Sausage sizzle on Fathers Day. Thanks to all the helpers involved. We do have another day lined up next week for Friday 13th September, at time of writing we are still one short on the last shift. If you haven’t done one for a while or never, please let Peter Young know, and/or put your name on the roster on the notice board.
Unfortunately we experienced the great shed robbery where our Whipper Snipper was stolen shame, shame ,shame., and the College Shed had a Carton of Pies stolen from their shed! Oh the horror! The Police suspect the budding robbers were young kids. I suppose we should look at installing some sensor lights in the near future.
Well that’s your lot for now,
