Muniong Mumble 2015/03

Your Old Mumbler knows the question on everyone’s lips.  “How did the concrete pour go?” See for yourself.  From this to this.  The balustrade will be erected in a couple of weeks when the concrete is cured.  Then, finally, we’ll be waterproof and, importantly, legal.

Indoors, paint brushes have been brushing and rollers rolling.  There are new curtains, there are new pillows and there are new comforters, whatever they are.  Congratulations to new member Carolyn Cameron and partner John Casey, for joining us last weekend.  They worked pretty hard, but I think they had fun, too.  Because it is fun!  Want to see how much fun? Join us over Easter.

There will be a big push over the Easter weekend to finalise the 2015 maintenance programme.  Any time from Thursday afternoon through to Tuesday morning, we’d love to see you.  Think of it as glamping, you know, glamorous camping.  BYO food and linen.  It’s important to have the joint ready for P +T to set up the season.  And you will have fun! It’s a promise.  Contact Rob Holdaway,, 0407 056 737, or Iain Taylor,, 0424 495 595.

We’ll be back in your inbox again in about a week with a full update of the vacancies at the lodge prior to  non-members bookings.  If you haven’t booked already, this is the one for you.

See you at Muniong  (at Easter?)

Are you back with us, yet? Good. Three men and their trusty Hilti jack hammer ventured down to the lodge last weekend to prepare the deck for it’s new surface. As with most things in this renovation, it did not go entirely to plan. Instead of a nice sand and cement base easily removed with said jack hammer, the base was rock hard concrete. Well, the three men are now shadows of their former selves, having hammered themselves to a standstill on Saturday and then backed up for more on Sunday. Many and varied thank you’s to Rob Holdaway, Col Doolan and Iain Taylor.

Next weekend, the reinforcing steelwork will be put into place and tied down. At least we hope so. At time of writing we have a volunteer group of one. Not enough!. We desperately need more bodies to assist. Can you help? Please! Contact Rob Holdaway. 0407 056 737.

Now back to our opening question. Perhaps you though that the Mumbler was overreaching a tad, to describe a water heater as sexy. Not a bit! The three men, with their broken bodies, were the first to try out the new heater and it’s two sisters. The hot water is hotter, the pressure is higher and hopefully the bill will be lower. Sexy after a hard day jack hammering and sexy after a hard day skiing.

That’s it for the moment. More on the continuing renovations as they progress. But we need you this weekend. Call now.
