Welcome to the Spring Newsletter from the KSA Committee.
In an attempt to keep members better informed we have outlined some of the actions that have happened during the winter months and what is to come this season.
Work completed so far
We had a successful workday last month which resulted in the clubhouse being made ready for the season and the grounds being cleared of debris. A big thanks to those who could make it on the day.
The weather station has been replaced and is being tested before being attached to the old jetty, big thanks to Myles Ripley.
Peter Melling has created and installed a kayak rack for members to use.
Replace defective window units.
Make alterations to the clubhouse partition.
Look at the triangular berth area to make better use of the space.
Construct two canoe racks along the boundary fence.

Fundraising is underway for a family boat, a Hartley 15, to add to the boats available for members to use.
Berth users will be issued with boat stickers to help with the identification of boats onsite.
Broadband providers B4RN will be working towards connecting the clubhouse during the year. Volunteers will be needed to help with the dig.
When a committee member is onsite they will wear a KSA high-viz jacket to identify themselves if anyone needs advice.
Members using club boats must remember to ensure the boat is securely fastened down with the cover on after use, and to sign the logbook.
Will dog owners who bring their dogs on site please keep them on a lead and under control at all times. Clean up after them and remove any deposits off the site. Dogs are not allowed in the clubhouse.
