One of the Committee's priorities for our first year has been the drafting of a new constitution for our Club. The current Constitution no longer meets the needs of MBFC as we had many changes in the last few years and it is no longer fit for purpose.
There will be a Special General Meeting at which members will be asked for their endorsement of the revised Constitution. I will also take this opportunity to update you on a number of other important issues, including the lease of our premises.
With the support of Club's WA, the Committee has prepared a draft which has been e-mailed to all of our members for your review and comment. I would be very appreciative if you could read the attached draft and if you would like to suggest any changes forward your comments ASAP to our Club Secretary, Greg Allen. e-mail: info @ manglesbay. com. au
The details for this meeting are as follows:
Venue: Mangles Bay Fishing Club
Date: Wednesday 31st of March 2021 commencing at 6:00pm.
A sausage sizzle will be provided to members who are able to attend the meeting.
Could you please RSVP to Greg by the 26th of March if you are coming.
President - MBFC

The new Sliding Gate has been installed for security and members conveniance.
For Entry and Exit you will need a Gate Remote Fob.
These are available from the office from 4 to 5pm most days, if a committee member is present, or Sunday from 12 to 4pm. A remote is issued free per membership with additional remotes at $40 (cost).
If members require an additional Fob for their wife or partner they can purchase one from the office.
Remote Fobs are for the exclusive use of the Member it is registered to. It it against club rules to use or lend a Remote Fob to others without prior arrangement from the committee. Members risk having their Fob disabled.
Remember that only MBFC members can use the Boat Ramp and visitors cars will need to use the car park outside the gate.
MBFC are VERY SERIOUS when it comes to boat safety. We recommend that all our members register with Rockingham Sea Rescue and log on with them each time they venture out on the water.
This is a long, but important message from "Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group"
PLEASE READ, AND THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN SAFETY ON THE WATER.
With the recent sea tragedies, we are appealing to all boaties to seriously rethink their actions before and while they are on the water. YOU'RE the Skipper, YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE for your vessel and all persons onboard!
All Marine Rescue Volunteer groups are here to help, we dont do it for glory, we come from all walks of life but we all have one common goal...to keep you safe. But we need your help!! When an accident at sea happens, we drop everything in our lives to respond. We search for hours, often day after day, hoping for the best possible outcome, but sometimes it's only to give closure to the loved ones you have left behind.
HAVE all required safety gear, AND know how to use it! WEAR your life jackets/Pfds, they're certainly not there to be a cushion or fashion accessory! LOG-ON with your local Marine Rescue Group, and check that where you go AND the weather are suitable for both your vessel and your own capabilities.
If you are unsure or new to boating, please contact your local Marine Rescue Group for advice.
Our doors are open, use Facebook, use phones..we always try to be available for any questions or queries.
Or bring your boat and your family down so we can answer any questions you AND your family may want to ask.
There is nothing embarrassing about wanting to keep your loved ones safe!…Visit the Rockingham Sea Rescue website here
