Dave Macauley talked us through his professional surfing career, from catching the wake of ski boats in the Collie River as a young kid through to his days finishing as high as 3rd in the world rankings, his surfing travels and the creation of a family…who are now competitive surfers in their own rights.
This was one of the best presentations we have had this year. Many thanks to Dave.
A new inflatable water trampoline has been purchased by the club as the existing "Rotary Floatery" is sadly getting old and worn out. Watch out for the 'new' trampoline at Gnarabup when it is launched in December.
Whatever your reason, joining Rotary can help you achieve these goals, and so much more. See why these men and women are members of their local Rotary club. Watch this short video and learn more.
The Wine Quiz
Each week a Margaret River winery donates two bottles of one of their classic wines.
One bottle forms the informal ‘blind tasting’ quiz whilst members are arriving at the start of the meeting. The quiz winner will win the second bottle of wine.
Monday nights wine was a 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon from Rosa Brook fruit
There’s something to be learned from every wine we taste at these quiz tastings. My take is that this wine was over extracted (squeezing every past drop out of the fruit) and was a bit like marmalade with a slightly bitter aftertaste. 87 points from me. All things considered it wasn’t bad and when I had some at home with a biscuit, it was a definite improvement on the tasting I had at our meeting.
