Avast there, ye lubbers!


‘Sixteen men on a dead man’s chest,

Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum’

                   – Treasure Island, Robert Louis-Stevenson

SPLICE the mainbrace. There were more pirates, skulls and crossbones, cutlasses and kids (and Rotarians) than you could poke a rusty sabre at the Royal Victorian Yacht Club last Saturday. Club members are still praising this year’s Pirates’ Day for Challenge – and young children with cancer – as our best yet.

THE Shakers and Movers of Point Gellibrand Rotary were put through a gruelling Five-Way Test on Tuesday night…and most of us failed, miserably. Whose idea was it anyway, for such an intense session of Zumba (aerobic dancing) without a paramedic in attendance?

A cold slow start to April – a bit close to Easter for some; SONY DSCbut time for reflection on our activities over the recent past – the great success of The Willi Ball, where we had the best result to date with the funds pledged to the E.J. Whitten Foundation in aid of Prostate Cancer Awareness.  The camaraderie of Bunnings Barbeque on Easter Monday and despite late changes with our speaker for the evening the Gellibabies were in good form once more.

This week had a rip-roaring start as Ray proposed the longest Toast ever, Raimonda and Archieinforming us about the District Conference and how he was impressed by our District’s World Peace Ambassador Tania Miletic.  Then it was over to President Raimonda who welcomed Guests, District Governor Nominee Murray Verso and Speaker Archie Cowan. She had been present at the Hobson’s Bay Library’s Summer Writing Festival, sponsored by our club and was pleased that this year there were entries from 160 children compared to only 20 last year.

After the success of the 2013 Big Bay Swim a rest would have been good but IMG_9585we are the Gellibabies and we were into it again the following weekend entertaining a dozen or so members of the DUC club (Dad’s Ultimate Challenge) an offshoot of Challenge cancer support to enable some respite for dads.  This weekend at the Mathoura property of PP Richard and Anne McKay supported by a group of Gellibabies and friends gave these dads a chill out weekend of fun and time for reflection.  (More later)

And we have two guest speakers and several guests with us this week as well as saying farewell to our home of 18 years at the RVMYC before we decamp to the RYCV – just remember it’s at 120 Nelson Place next week – next to the cop shop!!

From the smooth start at Sandridge Beach – even the water was still! To the course marker buoys and boats across the water the lifesavers on boards, skis and rubber duckies to the timed finish at Pelicans Landing where the reception was just magnificent.

The Gellibabies are into planning this week so that the Jenny Anderson Trvor Pang and RaimondaWork Experience Program with Williamstown High School set for July will have better traction than last year’s last minute attempts. To this end we were given the best information possible from Jenny Anderson from Williamstown High School and Trevor Pang from the Rotary Club of Richmond the District Vocational Committee on Education and Youth committee member.
