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!...

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...

NBN is coming!  Switching on in Early May

NACCAi has been communicating with different Telcos to find the best deal possible for the Cove.   I have been told that the NBN will become live on 5th May this year.

A number of Telcos were not interested in speaking with us and said go to their website and look at the plans.

After a number of calls to different companies we have been offered a pretty good plan by “More Telecom” 

The deal comprises:

With the current bush fire devastation on the south coast, there has been a lot of discussion in the community about the possible threats to North Arm Cove. The greatest risk is probably from the north west. However, we have had previous fires in the Bundabah/Pindimar area where the smoke and ash have affected North Arm Cove.

The picture shows a fire on 6 January 2001 that burnt to the waterline near Bundabah. We had days of smoke and ash but luckily no embers. When you look up at the hills in the area near Carrington and Fame Cove...

As President of ACCAi I thought I should address some of the different narratives going around in relation to the upcoming vote on the Constitution for North Arm Cove. The executive’s goal is to have an all-inclusive constitution which caters for the future while dealing with the current issues.

Myself and the other executive members are not in favour of creating a constitution that creates different classes of members. That is to say members that have more rights or less rights then other members. We are strongly against creating divisions within our community – where would it end?...

As we continue to campaign for improved telecommunications in the Cove it is worth remembering that this local struggle began many years ago. But before relating a bit of that history here is a quick question:

How many permanent residents do you think would have lived in our North Arm Cove village back in 1968?

10? 20? 50? 100? more?
