Great Working Bee Wednesday 7th May

Our great team of volunteers had a productive workout at Kinaba on Wednesday 8am start with Ken, Telena, David, Laurie, Mike, Jan, Bob, Lesley and Ian, Sue and Charlie. Had a last minute supply of brushes, sandpaper, etc from our supportive Parks crew.

The team of painters started on posts and railings on all sides. Once they'd started there was no stopping.  The chippies completed more decking and joist work on the western side, then tackled repairs of the timber screen at the rainwater tank, including fresh paint.

There is another induction session scheduled

There are 10 places left if you are available for the next induction for volunteers to be held at the Boreen Point Sailing Club on Saturday 12th April 2014 from 8.30am.

Next byo Picnic 27th April 8am

Wouldn't you like to be up to watch the sun come up over Lake Cootharaba?  Then hop into your kayak or canoe, or walk from Elanda Point, or hitch a ride with a local, and take your breakfast makings to the Kinaba Information Centre, and share a meal on the deck. 

Great night of history at the Apollonian

Ken Eddy organised a great night of history last Wednesday night at the Apollonian Hotel.  For 2 1/2 hours we were entertained by stories, anecdotes, wonderful old photographs, and a history lesson of the local Kinaba area.

Gail Forrer article

Gail Forrer came across the Lake to the breakfast picnic on Sunday 16th February from 8am, and after wandering around and talking to others there, she wrote an article that appeared in the Noosa News on Thursday 21st February 2014.  Good work Gail.  Thank you.

First Kinaba picnic for 2014

Last Sunday, 16th of February, Friends Of Kinaba had their first Kinaba picnic for 2014.
Being summer we decided on a Picnic Breakfast, which was a great decision due to the windy conditions over the last week, and ensured a smooth passage across the Lake

February's working bee

On Saturday 8th of February we had another Kinaba working bee.  After a pleasant Lake crossing, and a short catchup, we unloaded tools from the boats and started with the designated jobs for this session. 
Brett and Dominic assisted by Cheryl and Steve, repaired floor joists and decking where the western board-walk joins the Information Centre.  Charlie re-secured wobbly handrail posts on the southern deck.

First Working Bee

Our small group of firmly inducted volunteers arrived at the boat ramp at 7am and had a fantastic sail in Charlie's RL24 all the way to the channel.
These are some of the perks of being a volunteer with Friends of Kinaba.

A Banner to work under

We had another picnic at Kinaba last Saturday 21st September, and this time we could party under a beautiful banner created for us by Gonzo French - a local resident and artist.  Thank you Gonzo for your expertise and diligence in having it ready for our visit.

A tinnie for Kinaba

Friends of Kinaba recently received a very generous donation of a 3.4 metre tinnie with trailer from Boreen Point resident Mr. Jim Bennett. Once fitted with an appropriate engine, our mariners will be able to use it to transport goods and volunteers.  Thanks Jim, what a beauty!
