Shed Open Day

As active partners in the community and in conjunction with Seniors Week 2010 Bateau Bay Men's Shed are holding an open day on Tuesday 23 March.

The main activity on the day will be a free BBQ and a chance to chat with the men who are members of the fastest growing Shed on the Central Coast. Activities will begin at 11 am and finish at 2pm but anyone is welcome to turn up at any time.

Wives and partners are also welcome as this will give them the opportunity to see just what the men get up to when they say they, "are off to the Shed for a while".

Come and enjoy the day!

Thanks ADSSI for your Wonderful Support

ADSSI have been extremely generous in their support of the Shed. From the initial offer of the workshop space, the grant to establish the Shed equipment and the ongoing support of our operations. As a small token of our appreciation Mark constructed the ADSSI logo as a string art and had it framed with an engraved plaque of appreciation. The piece of art was presented to Colleen Copper, ADSSI Service Manager, at a special morning tea. Colleen thanked the members said the gift would be given pride of place in a prominent area of her building.

One Lucky Scout Gets to Test Drive the Beast

Now that the scouts have one billy cart Allen is working on his second, updated model which he promises will be more streamlined and of course much faster. We understand he has even hired a wind tunnel to test his latest model!

King of the Kids

Allen was present at the Tumbi Umbi Scout group to see his latest billy cart presented. All the boys had to have a try and by the time Allen had left there had been no serious injuries.

Another Shadow Board Complete

The Shed set up continues and Graham proudly displays the shadow board he made to accommodate the wood lathe equipment.

Is Nigel Upset?

Barrie is trying to dictate a submission to Nigel but it appears Kevin keeps interrupting. There's always someone in the typing pool who spends all their time gossiping. Not Nigel though, as he is very task oriented and just wants to get on with his work. Barrie in the mean time is always very patient and just waits until the little spat is over.

The Typing Pool Is Alive & Well

The friendly, expert & handsome staff of the newly established Bateau Bay Men's Shed typing pool are waiting and ready to accept your orders. Kevin & Nigel won the contest to see who would become the faces of the Shed and promote our activities (doesn't say much for the other entrants)
Please call soon as they can't stay in those positions posing for much longer.
