To all and sundry, let it be known that the current NACRA/NACCAi Executive did not create the current situation with constitution.  We inherited it -  Let me repeat that – We did not cause the current situation – previous/past leadership of NACRA are responsible.

These attacks on my fellow members need to cease.

Maria Pickles as well as secretary of  NACRA/NACCAi , is on the Hall committee, the garden group, attends the SARG group meetings with local council on the Cove’s behalf and is heavily involved in conservation in the Cove.

The Special Resolution for the new constitution for NACCAi that was scheduled to be voted on at at 10am on Saturday 8 February has been withdrawn.

I have done this because there has been quite a deal of community discussion and concern regarding some of the clauses in that draft. I decided that the best approach was to withdraw the Special Resolution and instead use the time allocated to hold a forum to discuss what members would like to see in the new constitution.

We will be seeking to get agreement on the key aspects that should be...

In the last few days we've had some lovely high tides in the middle of the day. We've had a lot of people out for a swim, people kayaking and kids playing in the water. Unfortunately we've also had a few hoons driving their boats at speed between the oyster leases and the shore.

If you want to go fast, please go on the other side of the oyster leases and keep the shore side safe for the...

What on earth is the NACCAi Executive Committee up to – three notices of the 8 February 2020 special general meeting and three different versions of the constitution have been published in two weeks, with the last two versions published on Sunday evening and then on Monday morning! None of the notices comply with our existing constitution requirements or the Associations legislation, and each of the constitutions contains inconsistencies which could render them unworkable.

This is a complete shemozzle, a giant stuff-up that should never have happened and must be fixed!

At the Fire Drill meeting at the Community Hall on Saturday 18th of Jan  RFS Community Engagement Facilitator Margaret Hunt, has volunteered to visit any resident’s property in the Cove to assist and give advice on how to keep and make your home safer in the event of a major bushfire in the Cove.

The RFS unfortunately are unable to offer house protection to homes in the Cove in the event of a bushfire, if going on to that property might endanger the lives of their members because of any unsafe conditions that may exist there on.

If you haven't yet, maybe you are missing out on what has been described as the fastest growing sport in the US. And there are already some 1500 players in Australia.

Now you can join the crowd. Pickleball is a cross between tennis, badminton and table tennis and it has come to North Arm Cove! Four players, a low net and a low-compression ball.

Pickleball is one of the games we learn in the Get Your Racquet On! program.

Our North Arm Cove host team of nine club members met at the court on Tuesday in preparation...

Just a quick clarification on the statement at the end of Bob Reids Post...My name should NEVER have been on the Letter Printed in the Cove News stating that I would be standing down. I was not consulted by the Editor that my name would be printed and I had previously emailed the committee encouraging all to join with me to stand again.

I sincerely hope to continue my involvement with the Association, hopefully for many years to come, if you'll have me? Yes, I do work full time and run my own business interest, so I do...

Query

Did you ever wonder why ...
Some people spell Boulevarde with a final E
while
there are others who spell Boulevard with no extra E?

Can both be right?

Council, it appears, is confused because some of our local signs have the E at the end but most official Council records show no extra E. Indeed most Boulevards in the world go without an E to finish. Although Hawks Nest of course has "The Boulevarde"! That final E hasn't been washed away - yet.
