RANOPS Lunch Invitation - RANOPS Goes Yachting

You are invited to attend a RANOPS meeting at the: Southport Yacht Club

It's time to start clearing the decks, batten down the hatches, don the eyepatch and get the old parrot out of the cage for the annual RANOPS onslaught on the Gold Coast!

The Deal:  Good seafood/Australian menu and a great view across the marina. So why not come along and tell tall tales and true (?) with some old mates (or meet some new ones), take in the great scenery (yachts that is!), relax and have lunch while supping on your favourite poison?

Address:  SYC, Macarthur Parade, Main Beach, Queensland 4217 (Phone 07 5591 3500)

Date:  Friday, 20 October

Time:  Meet at the bar 1200 to 1215'ish for a pre-lunch ale and spin a few fibs.

Drinks: Purchase at the Bar

Lunch:  Around 1300 - order and pay at the Service Point

Getting there:  For the locals - any bus to Sea World - passes right by the Club.  Coming from Brisbane - trains depart Central Station every 30 mins.  Best to aim for departures of either 0959 or 1029.  Get off at Helensvale Station and take the Sea World bus (Route 704) to arrive at the club at 1155 or 1225 respectively which is pretty good timing for the first drink of the day.

Parking:  Yacht Club car park

Getting home:  All in one piece, please! 

The RANOPS coordinator:  Gary Northern

RSVP: By 8 bells Tuesday 17 October, by replying to this email or to garynorthern99@gmail.com  or phone   0755312045/0412 936 100
