New Year Projects 

Can't believe it's 2020..weren't we supposed to be flying around in spaceships by now, instead of parked in traffic jams on the Bruce Highway?
Never mind, New Year is a time to look ahead with the best of intentions. There was some discussion at the meeting about plans and here's a few of the issues on the go:
Ironman support
Colleen has been gauging the views on the club on continuing to support this event. It appears at this stage that there is a majority in favour, It will be coming up in a few months, so stay tuned for more info from Colleen.
IFYS, Board Organisation, THRIVE, Community  
The relationships formed by the volunteer work and the community is blossoming and its something the club would like to continue to support, and hopefully continue on as a Cluster activity. On Friday some ideas were aired about how we could facilitate providing support and aid to the Sunshine Coast Community
Surf Show and Shine 
After several site inspections in our quest to find suitable venue, it looks like the lower car park (ex Caravan Park) is the preferred venue for Council, and Steve and John are going through the process of Council approvals. Likely to be on Sunday April 19th. 
Drought Relief
The club has a long history if drought relief support, and in 2020 we're sure the demand will still be there. At the end of the year President Mike, Tony and John met with Care Outreach to explore ways to support their work via Rotary grants. We expect information will be coming forward in the next couple of months that we'll bring to the club meeting. 
The 24th January was going to be our next BBQ, but this is the date the Bunnings have set aside for a national BBQ in aid of the bushfires. So our next BBQ will be on Tuesday 11th February quickly followed by another on Friday 28th February. Then in a surprise move, we have also been offered the lucrative Sunday 3rd May (long weekend). 
Solstice Swim 
The swim has become a feature of the Sunshine Coast winter season, and although there has been the unfortunate White Ribbon administration, we will vie seeking ideas for a local beneficiary and to continue our relationship with the Alex Surf Life Saving Club.
