Saturday night is film night 

As an extension to the Rotary Surf Show and Shine we are hosting an ourdoor film night at the Mooloolaba School Oval on Saturday 15th September
 
We're indebted to the Sunshine Coast Council who are sponsoring the event, and we hope that it grows into something even bigger in future years. 
 
Captain Underpants is the kids movie first up!
 

Iconic Surf Show and Shine in aid of drought relief

The 4th Annual Rotary Surf Show and Shine is getting near!!
 
Here's the new VIDEO LINK in case you've forgotten what all the fuss is about with more information on the event and our fantastic sponsors.
 
We've had great support from Sunshine Coast Council, Cricks Volkswagon, Rip Curl, Sea FM an just this week Shake it Up music have come on board. 
 
It all starts on Saturday (15th Sept) night with a Film night at the Oval, and then on Sunday the Kombi's and the Surfboards arrive. 
 
On Sunday morning there will be Kombi's on display at Alex Headland and Mooloolaba Promenade. 
 
The entertainment kicks off with Mini Muso's and then we have Ghost Riders with their tribute show then the headline act Cumquats. The music will go till 4 pm this week, such has been the positive response from our muso's to help with drought relief.
 
To keep the kids busy Colleen has been putting together the kids play area with Jumping castle, face painting and other kids activities.
 
We've also been blessed with great offers of support from Care Outreach, Mooloolaba Rotary, Grammar and USC Rotoract. 
 
Also we're disappointed that our patron , Cllr John Connolly will not be with us, as he is having a well deserved holiday with his Family. We look forward to seeing John well rested on his return. 

Memories

IronMan support

Libby would have approved of our support of the Ironman Competition, and she had given quite a few hours in previous years guarding the gear tent, to raise funds to support the various club donations, including ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and of course mental health.
 
Here she is with the organiser in chief Vicki Stewart at our Mad hatters function in support of mental health.  
 
She would also have appreciated the enthusiasm of our very own Gary Lynch in trying out the Ironman Volunteer T shirt.  (below) 
 
Surf Show and Shine Video Promo
Last months  presentation from Bill and Melissa was very timely, and we would have seen recently the terrible pictures from the drought ravaged bush on the news. 
 
So its been great to see that the funds raised have been put to good effect, and that's all the incentive we need to organise our signature event on Sunday September 16th at Mooloolaba School oval. This years event will follow the successful path paid down by Denis and Chris, with the addition of a cinema night. This follows an offer from Sunshine Coast Council to donate an outdoor cinema night to "warm up" the crowds.
 
Next year, the Council would like the club to organise a weekend "Place" event so that we can draw in support from the wider community, including accommodation and catering businesses. If the foreshore improvements have been made, then we're guaranteed a weekend slot at the new parklands on the Saturday and Sunday. 
 
Clearly this is all to big for a small (but energetic) club like ours, so its been brilliant to see support from Mooloolaba Rotary who have put their hand up to man the BBQ for the day, and also Rotoract who will provide volunteers, not forgetting long time supporters Sunshine Coast Grammar and Mooloolaba State School who provide the location and shade etc. We've also been joined by Lorenzo at the Coast Board riders, who has put his hand up to organise the couple of hundred specialist surfboards, and also, we hear, organised a "glassing" tent, for the surf board enthusiasts. 
 
We're also putting together some entertainment and a food court for the day, a big thanks to Stuart and the team, and not forgetting our site manager and architect, Trevor, and our media guru, Tanya who has already reached out to over 40 Kombi's in the first week of advertising.
