NEW Guanaba Facebook Fan Page

If you have not already checked it out - our NEW FACEBOOK FAN PAGE is just what the doctor ordered.

The new page is much more interactive with members / fans, and much more flexible than the old Facebook group (now deleted) that we have had online for the past 12 months. The old group page was deleted finally this week just gone, so if you were a member of that - you will need to re-join the new page.

If you are a member of the new fan page, your personal Facebook profile will be updated each time something new is posted or updated on our club page. Making it much easier for our Facebook fans to stay in touch with what we are doing. As well as this, our Twitter page will be updated simultaneously and automatically too.

The address of the new page is :-
http://www.facebook.com/guanabacountrymusic

So please feel free to tell anyone that you can about this new address.

How To Find Our Club - Update

Just uploaded a new aerial image of how to find our clubhouse, with graphic and text labels - and appended it to the original post from August 2008.

This should now make it much easier for people to find us, cause it can prove a little confusing the first or second time.

REVUE - Monthly Social - 17 MAY 2009


- Laurie Barton blowing them away -


Our MAY SOCIAL was held on Sunday, 17 MAY 2009.

Yet another great day at The Firestation, enjoyed by everyone. Performances were all of a consistently high standard, but the performance of the day that definitely stole the show was by our very own Laurie Barton, who absolutely stole the limelight and the show with his passionate rendition of a traditional blues number whilst he strummed away on his mid-sized ukelele. WOW! He sure did bring the house down!!!

Another highlight of the afternoon, was a stirring tribute to our very own Joan Fenner by our infamous vocal group, The Rottweilers. Joan recently officially became an Australian citizen (having been born in Ireland), after about 50 years of having been a resident here in this fair land of ours. The Rottweilers decided to christen this magnanimous occasion with their own heart-felt version of the classic Australian song 'Waltzing Matilda'.

All the photos (64 posted) taken during the afternoon are now available for viewing online 24/7, by clicking on the appropriate links MAY 17 Social Photos Online on this page, or by clicking on the collage image above.

REVUE - Monthly Social - 19 APR 2009


Our APRIL SOCIAL was held on Sunday, 19 APRIL 2009. A beautifully fine day, but verging on the point of being a little too warm during mid-afternoon.

Club Name Badges - Promoting Friendships

Guanaba Club Name Badge

In the words of John Lennon .. "reach out and touch".

It would be nice if our members and guests could wear some form of identification (name badge), so a conversation may be easily started with a "Hello, Mary .. or Bill etc."

By reaching out, the valuable friendships we form can be very rewarding.

** If you would like to purchase an official Guanaba club name badge, just like the one pictured above .. simply enquire at our front reception desk when you next visit us.

All Photos Now Posted - FEB 15 St Valentines Day Social


Our VALENTINES DAY SOCIAL was held last Sunday, FEBRUARY 15. This social was also a FUNDRAISER for the VICTORIAN BUSHFIRES & NORTH QUEENSLAND FLOODS APPEALS. The official amount raised on the day was $1700, which will be split evenly between the two causes. So well done everyone, this was an awesome effort!

Once again, it was an extremely warm day with not much breeze to cool us off at all. A few storms were floating around the ridges, but we were spared this time round. We've had a lot of rain at Heritage Park where our clubhouse is located, the ground is saturated.

Another BIG crowd was in attendance. The standard of performances was once again well rounded and full of variety. Our old friends from SMOKEHOUSE CMC at Tweed Heads payed us another visit, and charmed us all with their country flavour!

All Photos Now Posted - DEC 21 Christmas Social



Our CHRISTMAS SOCIAL was held on Sunday, DECEMBER 21.

It was a warm day, but thankfully not too hot as is customary for this time of year .. thanks to the light cloud cover + a nice breeze. Once again, our clubhouse was filled to capacity .. and all who were there on the day, had a great time. The clubhouse was naturally decorated for the Christmas season and the tree looked great!

Our band played really well, and the standard of entertainment was once again excellent. Bonnie, one of our popular singers recently also celebrated her 80th. birthday and all I can say is that I hope I look as good as Bonnie when I am her age lol. She looks great and sure knows how to sing a country song real good!

After the social had ended, about twenty of us members stayed back and helped to clean and tidy up the clubhouse .. and after that we ordered some tasty pizzas, and spent some quality time together as friends.

All the photos (65 posted) taken during the afternoon are now available for viewing 24/7 by clicking on the following links :-

As there is NO SOCIAL IN JANUARY EACH YEAR, this year we are car pooling it or heading on down by our own steam, to MULLUMBIMBY CMC on 18 JANUARY 2009 for their monthly social. That should be a lot of fun as always. And their afternoon tea is one of the best around today.

Also, a date to earmark in your diary for next year is 30 AUGUST 2009 for our ANNUAL CHARITY DAY. More details will be posted as they come to hand. All dates for all of our socials, meetings, special events etc. can be found 24/7 by going to our Guanaba Events Calendar.
