Working Bee 2018

The annual club working Bee will be Sat 5-Sun 6 May.

Working Bee weekend is the time when we get the lodge ready for the upcoming season. Professional services are used for major items, but we rely on members to do many of the tasks. We usually make a few improvements, but much of the work is maintaining and replenishing.

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 and quickly feel at home in the lodge. However it is first and foremost a working weekend.

The tasks very from year to year but typically would include
  • moving firewood into the store
  • stocktaking (eg cereal, juice, toilet paper)
  • painting (eg walls, railings, architraves)
  • cleaning & organising the kitchen cupboards & contents
  • turning mattresses & mending protectors
  • minor repairs
  • small carpentry jobs
  • small metalwork jobs
  • checking & replacing light globes
  • cleaning bathroom fans
  • tidying & cleaning boiler room, ski room
  • weeding and other gardening
If you can help this year, please contact our Lodge Supervisor Justin Checcucci
