Director’s Blog – FISHING FEVER

Saturday saw our inaugral “Oak Tree Classic” fishing day at our Warwick village in QLD.

Despite a windy day we had a great roll up of aspiring fishing enthusiasts – all ages were represented which was great to see. There were a large number of prizes on offer, most donated from local business’ and supporters, and the fish were a bit quiet but lucky for us, some were unlucky enough to be caught. Congratulations to Keith (the brother of village resident Daph Cross) who took out the prize for the best catch in the over 55’s age bracket. The biggest catch of the day, unofficially, was young Toby who caught a 45cm yello tail – Well done!

The day was really about enjoying the great outdoors on the banks of the picturesque Condamine River. The Oak Tree Village is very fortunate to have this famous river running on its land and just a short walk from our Community Centre. It was great to see families enjoying the location and just relaxing. Of course a day like this would not have been complete without a BBQ lunch which was enjoyed at teh Oak Tree Community Centre – Franco, as usual, was taking prime position at the BBQ, sampling all the fare!

Special thanks to our staff who brought the event to fruition – Mel and Gary from head office, and of course our Village Managers, Jenny and James.

Make sure you look out for the event in 2013 – it’s bound to be bigger then ever! And take a look at some of the photos by visiting our Warwick Village Page.

It is great to see activities like this in the villages – it really is what the Oak Tree lifestyle is all about. Why don’t you call us to see for yourself.
