MW3.18... Mid week Club Outing March 14 @Hinze Dam East

#1 Post by Dodge » Tue Feb 27, 2018 2:02 pm

Mid Week monthly outing for GC/NRKFC members and guests, held on the second Wednesday each month.

Mid Week outing for March, and is first of three locked trips scheduled for freshwater, so the full fortnight notice is given this month

LOCATION: HINZE DAM EAST Ramp

https://goo.gl/maps/u9MefSm7VZ72

Coming from the north, or south, ignore all road signs to Hinze Dam, these exit signs only lead you to the dam wall and western arm only, which is not the outing venue.

From South on Pacific Hwy ....Take Exit 80 The Link Way, Springbrook, Mudgeeraba then follow later sign to Springbrook,
From North ..... Take Exit 79 Mudgeeraba Robina ..... then follow SPRINGBROOK signs, again ignore the Hinze Dam sign ...after passing thru Mudgeeraba you will be on the Gold Coast Springbrook Road then follow for approx 10 minutes to Little Nerang Road, follow ramp sign at top of ridge then thru gate.
The turn off into Little Nerang Road is about 300m after you pass a water treatment plant and old caravan park

DATE: WEDNESDAY MARCH 14, 2018 there will be no postponements or date changes due to weather, you alone decide your attendance

LAUNCH TIME: This is your own choice so suit yourself as it is not a competition.
There is a gate at the dam that opens at 5,30am.

RETURN ASHORE: About midday so members can have a yarn together before going home.

SAUSAGE SIZZLE [only held if a minimum 5 starters come to the outing] note BYO drink.
Free if kitty covers cost ... or ..... $3 per head contribution if insufficient to cover, any surplus will be rolled over into the MW kitty

If you intend coming along add your name to this thread before Monday 12 March so others know and also is a guide BBQ shopping, and for new members there are no formalities, just come along.

A SIP can be purchased weekly or annual:

I've got my diary in front of me right now and cannot find the time to fit this trip in. I had my first trip out in the kayak for about 10 weeks on Saturday but am unlikely to have another opportunity until mid April for a variety of reasons. I hope the coming months for me are not as hectic and eventful as the previous four. Hinze Dam is a lovely dam and now being on the stocked impounded list there is no reason, if you are free on that day, not to go. Bill

Only 3 along today for the mid week trip, Jumaji, Seadog2, and Dodge. did not feel this warranted a report in Freshwater section

We struck it lucky with forecast 70% chance of rain, seems we scored the 30% sunshine section, however the wind was lively GC Seaway readings SE 44kms/h at 1000hrs.

Fishing was dead with only a single grunter showing up today, but company and snag sangers were good eaten with a beer.

All ashore at 1030 for a yarn and snack in the gazebo. After costs the MW kitty is now $5 lighter
