Mike Burke, Doug Baker & Past Commodore Richard Crooke. Doug was admiring the trophy he donated to the Squadron in 1969 – a half model of the Diamond “Bushranger”.

Tuesday saw a group of our older members gather for a cuppa and a chat at the second Old Buffers’ Morning Tea held on the Boardwalk stage. Some of them travelled from far and wide (Warwick, Yandina and the Gold Coast) to catch up with their mates and they all had a thoroughly enjoyable time.  A few of them made a day of it and stayed on for lunch too. The next Morning Tea is planned for early June (when it is a bit cooler). If you would like to join them please let Lynne know – (mail@rqys.com.au) and she will add your name to the list for a reminder note closer to the date.
