REPORT

After the cancellation due to rain last year, the 2018 St Huberts Day Family BBQ and Extravaganza was another success. An independent (but optimistic) head count resulted in an estimated 180 Islanders and friends making the most of the (almost regulation) stiff nor’ easter and the clear blue sky.

This year the Family Extravaganza component included a HUGE jumping castle, face painting for the kids - with a few very bigs kids sneaking into the seat, and TWO fire engines courtesy of Empire Bay Rural Fire Brigade. As well, the very low tide created a large beach for the kids to safely play and fossick on.

The big kids main game was The Egg Throw that was needless to say, variably successful(!).

Everyone was entertained by our local Discovery Street entertainers - “Kavamalt”, while they munched on free, endless sausage and steak sandwiches with copious amounts of beer marinaded fried onions.

Other entertainment was provided by the famous St Huberts Island Quiz, run this year, very randomly, by President Rod and his beautiful assistant Wendy, with Jenny Aldersley the successful winner (after seemingly many successful attempts at graft and corruption!!). Never-mind… her punishment is to provide the Quiz questions next year when she returns the Quiz Shield with her name engraved upon it.

The raffles were also successful with many winners walking away with some valuable and sought-after items.

While the jumping castle, face painting and fire engines remained till about 2:30pm many residents stayed behind so they didn’t need to carry the unnecessary weight of unconsumed cordial home.

And a great day was had by all…
