Considering the august group of fine upstanding members of society we have at the Shed it's not surprising that we have a number of Justices of the Peace in our ranks.

If you need the services of a JP contact John O'Halloran (0411 968 901) to arrange a suitable time and place.

If you are a JP and would like to help also contact John and he'll co-ordinate a contact list.

It has been proposed to form a Shed group to fossick for gemstones and cut polish them.

There are a number of defined fossicking areas within reach of Noosa. a licence is required fo fossick and in some places, camping is permitted for a licence fee.

Polishing stones does not require a huge outlay. Currently Jim Barrass is developing a tumbler with the help of the metal shed.

However, cutting and faceting requires more complicated equipment such as saws etc.

Any members interested should add their names to the activity list on the notice board. Jim will co-ordinate and if it is deemed feasable a proposal will be submitted to Committee for approval.

The Noosa Men's Shed assisted the Noosa Classic Car Club in running another Hill Climb event over the weekend of 22nd and 23rd July 2017.

The next Noosa Hill Climb will be the Summer Challenge over the 11th & 12th November 2017. Once again, Noosa Men's Shed can expect to be asked to provide men to assist with this event. Bookmark you busy diaries for the weekend 11th & 12th November 2017.

Many thanks must go to the shedders who regularly volunteer for this fund-raising activity. The benefits of the monthly income from this event benefits all members. The most recent Bunning’s Sausage Sizzle was held on 2nd July, and the results are as follows:

Gross Takings   $986.59
Food Costs $344.84
Net Profit  $641.75

 

 

 

On Sunday 28th May the Noosa Men's Shed provided assistance to the Noosa Ultimate Sports Festival by checking in the athletes and registering, labeling and sorting their gear before transporting it to the finish at Lions Park. The volunteers braved the chilly 5:30AM start to assist this great event and earn some valuable income for the Shed. Thank you guys!
