INTERNAL CLUBS From the President Welcome to the Summer edition of the “What’s On” magazine. The arrival of daylight saving, warmer weather and the approaching festive season means a time of popular Christmas raffles at both Club sites plus entertainment for the whole family during the school holidays including free family movies, Kid’s Bingo, great family shows and of course our FREE Family Fun Day - Australia Day 2017. What a fantastic night our AGM was on Monday 24th October 2016. It was complete with a most informative meeting; lovely hot plated meal for the first time, cold refreshments supported by the extremely popular and classic show “Back to the Tivoli”. I have had nothing but compliments from members. Congratulations and thank you to all staff for a job well done! Coming this Summer is a fabulous array of live entertainment. Check inside for details - even book your seats online! If you’re planning to spend Christmas Day at Club Forster, please refer to page 20 of this magazine to view details of our very special Christmas Day buffet luncheon in the lovely '242ate Cafe Bar and Grill' lounge. I strongly suggest that you book early as limited tickets are available for this very special event. On behalf of the Board and Management, I would like to inform you that James Cavanagh has been appointed as the Club’s Patron. For more details on this important appointment, I refer you to pages 22 & 23 of this magazine - congratulations Jim! I am pleased to report that on Thursday 17th November, 2016 the Combined Inter Sports Club Social was held with around 300 members attending a thoroughly enjoyable night.

The major sporting award recipients were Lilli Bultitude (Sporties Netball Club) for Junior Sports Person of the Year, Mel Thompson (Sporties Fishing Club) Club Person of the Year and George McCartney (Sporties Men’s Bowling Club) Sports Person of the Year. Congratulations to all nominees and most worthy winners. The Club’s trading continues to be strong!

'Jim' accepts honour for distinguished service to our clubs

On the 25th October 2016, the Board of Directors unanimously agreed to extend an offer to James Cavanagh of accepting the inaugural, prestigious and distinguished position of Patron of Club Forster and the Sporties Tuncurry. It was in the Board's mind that this position should be offered to the Club's No. 1 supporter and promoter who can be called upon by Board, Management and members at any time for guidance or advice and is held by the members of the Club in the upmost respect as an individual and person, and James was the obvious choice! We caught up with Jim soon after accepting the role of Patron from President Claire Fletcher, and asked him a few questions about himself, our clubs, and the future as he sees it. Congratulations Jim, firstly, can you tell us what this honour means to you? Well, initially it was very surprising and it took me some time to come to terms about what it means to receive such an honour. I've always believed that the position of Patron of any organisation was the highest tribute that could be offered and I just hope that I have the ability, not only to understand and appreciate the significance of the position, but to manage it in a manner that's appropriate. Can you briefly tell us about your club industry experience? It goes back a long way to the late fifties when I lived in Narrabri. I played golf in those days, and after about 12 months was elected to the club's committee and from then on I became very much absorbed in club management. After Narrabri, I moved to Bowral, and in a few years became a committeeman and later, president of the Country Golf Club. 22 | what’s on | summer 2016/17


In later years, bowls became my main recreation and after moving to Forster in 1995, I joined the Sporties, and in a few years I was elected a committeeman and then finally, President of the Sporties Men's Bowling Club. I have also been very proud to serve as Director of Club Forster for the past 14 years. What changes, both positive and negative have you found in the club industry over the years? Over the past 5 or 6 years there have been many significant changes within the club industry, and these changes have completely altered the community's conception of club life. Gaming, the sale of beverages and catering concepts have been given a totally different face-lift. Added to which special courses covering all aspects of club management have been designed to improve the professionalism of Directors and Club Executives. As far as our clubs are concerned, the attitude and approach of Board members is so vastly different. That cross-fire of discussion is still there but there is still harmony, an understanding of other points of view and most important, negativity is a thing of the past. Board Directors everywhere, now understand that unless a positive approach is a constant factor in board room discussions, then clubs are dommed to fail. What do you foresee in the future for Club Forster and the Sporties in particular? In the short term I can only see a graph line that has an upward trend. This is primarily because of the collaboration between the Board of Directors and Management through the CEO resulting in wise and informed decisions. What advice would you give anyone considering a career in the club industry? Sincerity always toward customers. Add old fashioned honesty with a good dash of integrity. When an error of judgement or comment has occurred, admit the mistake openly and frankly. Above all, be accountable. Finally, what advice would you give anyone considering becoming a Director? There has to be a desire towards club administration. One does not nominate to prove a point or satisfy some selfish need. Directors are always on a learning curve - the industry has to conform with the liquor and gaming laws and then there are the dynamics of the catering industry to understand. Listening to what is being said around the board table is a pre-requisite. In other words, you feel your way gradually. Be prepared to work hard and apply youself diligently. Finally, future Directors must understand they will be questioned by patrons on almost any subject and if there is some doubt as to the correct answer, then check it out before an answer is made. Try to be as well informed as possible. Thank you Jim – and once again, congratulations on your appointment.

Friday 6th January @ 8pm The ELECTRIC 80s SHOW was born from a love of the 80s by a group of musos who lived through it. For a lot of the band, the 80s were spent donning makeup and rocking the stage at Bombay Rock in Surfers alongside the likes of Psuedo Echo and Eurogliders. The 80’s are now back with a vengeance. And why not? The ELECTRIC 80s SHOW meticulously and faithfully reproduces the sounds and the light shows that were a trademark of the Eighties music era. From the Eurythmics, Devo, Guns'n'Roses, Divinyls, INXS, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper to the great Van Halen, The ELECTRIC 80s SHOW plays all the biggest and best songs from 1980 to 1989 with an amazing sound and light show that will transport you back in time.
