A Message from Bob Taylor
Dear Cruising Club Members,
You new committee met for the first time last week and are very excited about the boating and social year ahead.
Let's hope the current run of beautiful boating weather continues so we really get maximum use from our boats in coming months.
We have developed the ABCC Calendar up until January 2014 and will finalise the balance of the year by November.
After the Akuna Bay Boat Show in September, our first major Club event is our opening Dinner Dance on 25th October.
One of the issues the Committee agonises over is the price point at which events should be set, to ensure we get maximum attendance. I'd appreciate your input in this regard but I believe we should have a mix of events from some on the water that cost nothing, to some more up market events like Peats Bite and our Opening Dinner.
Last year for example, our Season Opening event cost $55.00 per head for finger food with no BYO and buy your own drinks, whereas this year's event comes in at $85.00 including a full buffet dinner and a 2 hour drinks package.
On both occasions the ABCC paid for the entertainment from Club funds.
We are planning to have more educational evenings usually on a Friday evening with our first one with David Lyons from Roads and Maritime on 15th November.
David operates our local Maritime Patrol vessel and should be a wealth of information to help us boat safer and within the law.
We are committed to develop a good mix of Boating, Social and Educational events and I would welcome any input from members at any time.
I look forward to seeing you on the water and at as many ABCC events that appeal to you.

Safe Boating and Kind Regards,
Bob Taylor
