Recent Trips & Outings
The boys and girls out and about
Dine-Out October was at the San Remo Hotel. It was another great dine-out but had a an air of sadness as we mourn the passing of long time member Bill Hathway just 4 days prior.
It isn't November without a Cup Day celebration so we trotted down to Rhyll where the ladies hatted-up and we all tried to sweep up the winner.

Around 40 of us made the 4 day trip to Bendigo early September. On the agenda were The Great STUPA of Universal Compassion, Deborah Gold Mine, Bendigo Pottery, a trip on the Talking Tram and even squeezed in a couple of Heathcote wineries. Also found time for a couple of dine-out's - one at the infamous old Shamrock Hotel plus numerous happy hours that seemed to last much longer than an hour - as far as I can remember!
The August Dine-Out was held at the Woolli Tavern. The boys & girls enjoyed some good food (and drink) & good company.
September at the North Pier - always a good way to spend a lazy spring lunchtime.
A trip to the Moonlit Sanctuary in Pearcedale in August was thoroughly enjoyed by all. They put on a great show.
Christmas in July
Christmas in July was held at the RSL where local Gippsland band - The ABR Band - entertained us throughout the lunch.
Birthday Time Again
The Probus Club of Phillip Island turned 37 (time going way too quick) in May so celebrations were held at Pino's. As usual it was great food & service plus raffles, drinks and high spirits.
A number of us traveled to Broughton Hall, Jindivick in April for a tour of the estate followed by lunch at Five Aces Brewing Co in Neerim South.

A beer with Duncan at the Cranbourne Trots. Many of us recently enjoyed just that.
The lunchalots took over the Wing Lock in Cowes for the monthly ritual where a number of round table discussions were had.
The Wonthaggi Club was the venue for the April dine-out. Marion managed her first dine-like a veteran - a good time had by all and it all went very smoothly.
The Waterboy was the place to be in March for the lunchalots. Did we see young love in the air too!!
10 Pin Bowling Feb 2023
The fierce rivalry (well maybe an occasional mild frown) between Islanders & Corinella Probus resumed in February with our monthly10 pin game in Cowes.
Lunch included those amazing chips too!!!

The Wooli Tavern
