Commodore’s Notes – August 2015
The August general committee meeting scheduled Bob Sinclair (Architect) to present proposed drawings of a new clubhouse. The conceptual drawings show the importance of the location through the external facade and the internal layout, whilst aiming to be similar to our current design which helps to provide the unique LAAC atmosphere. On Saturday, August 29th the sub committees will again meet to further discuss finances and design.
The GORCC has committed $45,000 of the 15/16 budget towards the preparation of a business case for the plan. This is an important step in securing extra funding for the project. Additionally, GORCC has allocated another $450,000 to the eventual Pt Grey Plan from this year’s budget. IN TOTAL $1.5 MILLION HAS BEEN SET ASIDE FOR THIS STAGE.
