Working Bee - May 2015

A ski lodge needs some TLC to keep it in good condition and and ready for each new ski season. Professional services are used for major items, but we rely on members to do many of the tasks. The annual working bee in early May is when we do all those little things (and sometimes a few big ones) that need doing before the season.

Attendance is optional. People with trade skills are particularly welcome, but all willing hands are appreciated.

Most people arrive late on Friday night. Andrew & Myra provide brekkie & lunch on Saturday & Sunday as well as Saturday dinner. It's great to stock up your locker and catch up with people before the season. For new members it is a great opportunity to meet old hands. However it is first and foremost a working weekend.

Moving firewood into the store
The tasks very from year to year but typically would include
  • moving firewood into the store (a big job for many hands)
  • painting
  • cleaning & organising the kitchen cupboards & contents
  • turning mattresses & mending protectors
  • minor repairs
  • small carpentry jobs
  • checking & replacing light globes
  • weeding and other gardening

Friday 1 May - Sunday 3 May

If you can help this year, please contact our Lodge Supervisor Justin Checcucci
