    WORKING BEE JOBS 

    • Lawns - whipper snip and mow
    • move trailers, mow and spray weeds
    • spray weeds - general (around water tanks etc
    • clean gutters (thanks Dave)
    • clean windows
    • fresh coat of paint on kitchen windows
    • the office can do with a tidy up and some filing 
    • spring clean inside the club house to assist Dianne with her regular effort
    • high pressure clean clubhouse external, concrete, recreation area
    • tidy recreation area and relocate "operational" equipment to hangars of workshop
    • suspend power leads to caravans on catenary wire/rope
    • etc other tasks 
    • There is also quite a bit of equipment, scrap steel, tyres etc laying around that impede the mowing task and have the tendency to harbour vermin and therefore snakes.  The plan is to relocate all this equipment to the western paddock for subsequent collection/removal. (The tractor/trailer will be required for this).


    .The club is currently enjoying a vast demographic of members at the moment and all are encouraged to come and help out - young and a "little bit older than young" - so please help with making this an enjoyable and productive day.

    DDSC Annual General Meeting and Dinner

    Dinner starts 6-6:30 pm
    Meeting starts at 8pm (meeting notice will be sent out shortly)

    The AGM is a an important part of the club calendar as it gives members and the committee an overview of the club's current direction and financial situation, as well as the election of  the new committee.  Trophies are given out for members who contribute and have done well with their flying.  It is also a great social event.

    I'd encourage all members to attend, even if you've only been in the club a little while.  

    Please RSVP as soon as you can so we have numbers.

    See you there!
