The Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park on the Gold Coast was checked and selected 12 months ago and final arrangements settled in earnest in June.
Although numbers were down on prior years, the muster was a great success socially and fellowship wise and we even had a breakeven financial result.
The program included a welcome function with entertainment; a cruise around the canal estates and the Broadwater and lunch; a film night starring James Bond with Pizza, ice-creams and popcorn to give a real cinema feeling to the Marque; breakfast at Jupiters Casino – yes some played and won; Rotary Club of Mermaid Beach hosted lunch with guest speakers from the Queensland Police Service on road awareness for caravanners, eClub NextGen on the Royal Flying Doctor project at Mount Isa and Paradise Motorhomes presentation on Caravanning Safety; a tag-along to Mount Tamborine; the AGM, election and officer handover; Twin Towns dinner and Delltones show; and the Beach Party with dancing on Sunday night. Of course an early morning walk started most days and happy hour and BBQ ended each day on a high note.
Participants were given 2 ½ days free time for options and some went deep sea fishing – yes they caught fish and helped to feed them; some went to the RM Williams Spirit of the Horse show; some went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary; some played golf; and some went whale watching- plenty of whales close to the vessel; and some even went shopping. All voted each activity a winner.
Photos of the week are contained in the "Photo Gallery" and show what a great time was had by all.
