Compliments of the season to you marvelous Muniong members out there. Your old Mumbler knows that you have all been good boys and girls this year and so can expect plenty of good things to come your way during the festive season.
There has been three – yes, count them – working bees already since the end of the season. Not only has the main hall been completely repainted, but so has the ski room and drying rooms. We’ve also begun the process of fire rating the internal walls between the upstairs rooms. But most importantly, we are on the way to waterproofing and resealing the deck. Big, big job!
As you can see in the photos, the tiles have gone and so has the seat. The back (front?) stairs have also been temporarily dismembered. Subsequent to these photos, scaffolding has been erected around the deck to allow formwork to be put in place for slab repair.
All this is in preparation for a final concrete pour on Friday 6 February. Fixed date – will not be changed. This means that we will require at least one more working bee in January to complete our preparations. We need you! Especially if you like jack hammer work. Which weekend are you available? Take your pick from 17 & 18 January (favourite), 24, 25 & 26 January (the long weekend) or 30 & 31 January (emergency only). Why don’t you make a pre-Christmas new year resolution to come to at least one working bee in January. We really need all the help that we can get. Email President Rob Holdaway now. firstname.lastname@example.org
