MAGNETIC ISLAND WORKSHOP 2019 - CHANGE OF VENUE
(Updated 22 December 2018)
The 2019 Magnetic Island Workshop will now take place at Amaroo on Mandalay Avenue in Nelly Bay on the advertised weekend of 12-14 July. This is because the Arcadia Motel has turned their function room into a storage room and the alternate rooms that they offered us are not satisfactory. Amaroo is a great venue and hotel so read all about it and our workshop plans on the Annual Workshop Page.
RECORDERS ON MAGNETIC ISLAND (Updated 1 September 2018)
At the Magnetic Island Weekend Workshop in July, we discovered that there is a U3A group of recorder players that meet every Tuesday 1:30-3:30pm at Ros Burry's house at 14 Bottiger Street, Nelly Bay (behind the Health Clinic at 76 Sooning Street). Visitors are welcome: phone Ros on 07 4778 5082 for information and to let the group know you are coming.
At the 2015 AGM members completed a membership survey about the Society and its activities. Nicky, our treasurer, compiled the results and this is available as a pdf document. The committee has used it as the basis for revising our activities for 2016 and implemented major changes.
