The following, is a report from the first meeting of the newly formed Gippsland Lakes Classic Boat Club, President Grant Ottaway...

"It is with pleasure we can announce that the Gippsland Lakes Classic Boat Club will now proceed to realisation.
On behalf of Peter, Tony, Kellie, Sally and Myself we would like to thank the 62 people that attended the expressions of interest meeting yesterday at the Nicholson Pub, in addition I would like to express our appreciation to Paul who provided the venue.
Yesterday a steering committee was formed and we would like to express our appreciation to those who have stepped up and offered their assistance.
We would also like to thank those who attended who have offered some wonderful ideas that will make this club appealing to a broad spectrum of the boating community; both experienced and new.
Over the next 2 weeks, we will be digesting all the feedback and announcing the formal club structure that we hope will meet the expectations of our members. Information and a summary will be posted online detailing the progression, this we hope will assist those who could not attend yesterday.
So, for now….. We will sign off as there is a lot to do. Please keep an eye on the “Gippsland Lakes Classic Boat Club” (GLCBC) FaceBook page for updates.
Once again, for those who attended, a huge thank you….. This is going to be wonderful."
Regards and on behalf of the GLCBC steering committee.
