Muniong Mumble 2017/1

Hello to all members of Muniong

Your Old Mumbler hopes that you have all had a memorable Christmas and are looking forward to 2017 as much as he is.  Now that the festive season is almost over our thoughts, of course, turn to snowsports.  Even from NSW the mid-north coast hamlet of Urunga, where your correspondent is holding out for a week or two, he is planning his next journey to Smiggin Holes and can’t wait for the white stuff to start falling.

But first things first!

Your 2017 subscription to Muniong Ski Lodge Co-Op Ltd falls due on 1 January.  It remains at $200 inc GST. A real bargain!  Would you please take this notice as a formal request for payment.   There are three great ways to pay:-

  • By direct deposit into our Macquarie Bank account.  BSB 182-512 A/C 960892115
  • Use your credit card (or PayPal account).   Go to and follow the instructions.
  • Take your cheque to your bank and deposit into the account above.  Note that we do not accept payments through the mail.

Prompt payment of your annual subscription really gives the Club a good base to launch into the 2107 season.  If you would like a formal invoice, please pop a note to and it will be forthcoming.

Thanks in advance for your prompt payment – and see you at the snow.

An Xmas Message from Rob Holdaway

On behalf of the Committee of Muniong Ski Club, I’d like to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and a most prosperous New Year.

2016 was one of the busiest we’ve seen at Muniong. The timetable for building alterations that was imposed on us by National Parks meant a mad scramble early in the year just to open the doors. It was that close. And we haven’t finished yet.  There will be another working bee on 14-15 January.  Please join us won’t you.

The season itself was good in parts, as has been the case for the last few years. There are plans for more snow making at Smiggins and improved access to the main Perisher range.

In the next week or so you will receive a request to pay the 2017 annual subscription, unchanged at $200. The Club appreciates your efforts in paying this as early as you can.

I’ll have more to report at the AGM later in 2017. Until then enjoy your break and, once again, Merry Christmas.

Rob Holdaway

Greetings to all Muniongers

I know may of you will be concerned about our new managers for 2015 and your Old Mumbler has good news.  We have received a large number of quality applications, which the Board is currently working through.  We hope to have an announcement shortly.

In the meantime however, we have more mundane things to announce. The Annual General Meeting has been set down for Wednesday 13 May, 7;30pm at Roseville Memorial Club.  Formal notification, as well as the Financial Statements, will be forwarded by separate email over the next day or so.  If you don’t get it, please let the Treasurer Iain Taylor know –

Have you booked your stay at Muniong this year?  Booking Officer Alice Lehane would love to hear from you.  Get in while the going’s good.

See you at the snow! (or even the AGM)

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?)

Psst……..psst, over here. Anyone want to see a sexy picture? Click here.


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.

Muniong AGM

A quick reminder that the Annual General Meeting of Muniong Ski Club Co-Op Ltd will be held this Wednesday, 9 April 2014 at 7:00pm at the Roseville Memorial Club Ltd.

Hope to see you there.
