Santa on the Canals
Ho ho ho! Once again Santa will be cruising by on Christmas Eve.
He and his elves will be throwing bags of lollies to all the children he sees on his rounds.
Listen out for bells and music from 5.30-7.00pm and get down to your jetty with your kids and your dogs.
Yes, Smackos are back due to popular demand!
Thank you to all the volunteers who help at this event, especially Jill Randall for organising and
Mick Georgeff for hosting the thank you barbecue.

Draft Budget of Works
Do you have any suggestions for maintenance, repairs or improvements to our precinct?
If so, please email us at by 22nd December so they can be included in our annual submission to the City for their 2018 budget. Please include as much detail as possible, and photos if relevant.

Christmas Lights

The Department of Transport has published this special boating guide about viewing the lights on the canals.
PMRA has been contacted by a number of skippers who would like to caution kayakers that they are risking injury by going out after dark because they can’t be seen.
Under the Prevention of Collision Regulations paddle craft operating after dark are required to carry either navigation lights or at a minimum shall have ready at hand an electric torch or lighted lantern showing a white light which shall be exhibited in sufficient time to prevent collision.

The Camp Quality volunteers have asked:
“Please can residents keep their lights up until 8th January as this is the night of our kids’ cruise”.

Thank you for a great party
We’ve had some lovely feedback about our Rockin’ Dinner Dance on 9th December.
Members enjoyed a greeting by Santa in a sensational floral arch provided by Mandurah's Fantasy of Flowers (September 2018 at MPAC).
Each guest received a welcome drink, a PMRA magnet with useful telephone numbers and a yummy chocolate gift.
The traditional Christmas buffet was delicious, and “Economy Class” performed some enjoyable old favourites. Here are some photos from the night.
What events would you like to see in 2018? Please email us with your suggestions.
