The weather was not conducive to drinks on the deck but the view was still pretty spectacular from the very pleasant dining area. Ann Gibson President of the Probus Club of Port Stephens told News Of The Area, “It is great to see this venue open again with excellent food and service from David and his team, we found It is spacious enough to accommodate our larger group, as well as families and couples.” In the same week a small group of very keen fishermen and women joined Pacific Blue Charters for a jaunt out to Broughton Island. “Apparently they had great fun catching the bait fish and Skipper Brad Horn with the help of the great deckie Brendan Sampson did their best to trawl over likely spots frequented by the big ones,” she said. Member, Dave Long was very cagey about how many fish were actually caught but one was a very tasty snapper. “All in all, a very enjoyable day,” Dave told President Ann. This club has many and varied activities to suit all retirees looking for fun, fellowship and friendship. Ann and the members of the Probus Club of Port Stephens invite everyone to come along to a meeting on the second Thursday of the month, 9.30am at Nelson Bay Bowling Club.
