Fancy Dress Cancer Council Fundraiser
This year for our cancer council fundraiser we will be holding a fancy dress party where you can come dressed as your favourite character or idol. Come dressed as an animal if you like or whatever. We will be holding this on Friday 28th June. Get your thinking caps on to come up with a great costume. Minimum Cover Charge is $5 per person which goes as a donation to the Queensland Cancer Council.
This year we would love to see as many people involved with this as possible. The more we can do will benefit a very worth cause.
BYO your own beverage and munchies.
Mail Delivery Service
For our long term guests we will be delivering your mail and parcels to your site this year on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s approximately between 11am and 1pm. If you aren’t home at that time we will place it on a table in your annexe. It would be helpful to us if you would arrange a cardboard box of some sort that we can put it into. Doing this saves double handling and space at our office. No mail will be held at the office.
Check In Times
Check in times for sites is from 11.00am. This is to allow Grounds Staff to check and prepare sites. No site arrivals before 11.00am.
Milk and Bread Arrivals
We get fresh Bread and Milk in each week from the Atherton Tablelands every Thursday morning from 8am. We get full cream and lite milk in the 2 litre variety for an awesome price at $4.00. Bread is the Abbotts Bread that we get in white, wholemeal and grain at $5.00 per loaf. Limited supplies are ordered in each week and as more people come in, the more we will order.
Hot Chook Tuesdays
You can pre-order for a Hot Chook to be cooked for you ready for pick up from the Sunset Cafe Tuesday’s at 3pm. To do so Chooks must be pre-ordered by each Monday at 3pm at the Reception desk. They are No 14 Chooks and the price is $15. This will happen every Tuesday through until approximately end of August.
Site Parking of Cars
From this point on please park your cars on your own site as we are starting to get busy. Cars and boat are to be parked up the side of your van to keep the driveway clear. It makes it very difficult for us when we allocate sites if you haven’t done so. Our Grounds Staff will commence checks this week. We appreciate your co-operation.
We do tour bookings at our reception free of charge as a service to you as we want you to experience the best of Karumba. Whether you want to go fishing, bird watching or go on an awesome sunset cruise, we can assist you. We do bookings for Kerry D Fishing Charters, Karumba Saltwater Fishing, The Ferryman Cruise and Croc n Crab Cruises. We also do bookings for Queensland Rail’s Gulflander train that runs out of Normanton. If you have booked with us and you would like to take in some or all of these adventures, call us on (07) 47 459277 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pre-book your tour.
New Dog Wash Facility
We are installing a dog wash facility at our park. We hope to have this operating within 2 weeks. The cost is $10 for 10 minutes. It has hot and cold water with shampoo and conditioner.
It will located at the front of the park adjacent to the fish cleaning area and it will incorporate an enclosed fenced area. This is unique to Karumba as the nearest dog wash facility to us is Mount Isa and Atherton which is over 500km away.
New Staff Arrivals
We have new staff with us now that join us and veterans Steve and Wendee. Say a big G’day to Dave and Karen who joined us recently. Also starting today is Alan and Ken who will be running our reception/shop. Please make them welcome.
Letters to the Editor
This week in Letters to the Editor….
What a great initiative by management to personally deliver mail to our sites on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our improvised letterboxes must be cause for amusement. Would it be possible for “the postie” to blow a whistle to announce his arrival?
Regards, B and R
Hello B and R,
We think that it is a great initiative to deliver the mail to your site, saves the double handling at the office. To “blow a whistle” to announce our arrival? Gee that’s from way back!. Anyway we thought about it and while we don’t have a whistle, we have a bell that we will happily “ding” when we drop the mail off.
Mail Box Competition
In light of us delivering the mail to your site, we have decided to run a competition to see who can come up with the most creative or unique mail box. This will run until the 15th of July and we will announce a winner and runner up in the Load of Croc after that.
1st Prize – $50 shop voucher to be spent in shop/cafe or meals
