Member Update – 7th October 2018 – Mosman Rowers has the keys returned!

The campaign for Mosman Rowers at Mosman Bay continues at pace and with incredible community support!

Here’s the latest. We’ve created all the conditions for our 107 year old community club to have a new future and we have finalised all formal requirements for us to move forward, the Deed of Company Arrangement has been signed!

An Extraordinary General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 23rd October 2018, 7pm at the Club. Appropriate notice was sent to Club members.

We are on track and ready for the Club’s future:

1. A new business plan that ensures a sustainable and viable club for years to come.
2. A settlement (Deed of Company Arrangement) with old creditors which those creditors have agreed to
3. Funding from members and supporters for that settlement is on track – over $135,000 has been raised in the last two months and this is growing every day
4. A third party catering professional, the Bird & Bear Group – who have transformed similar clubs such as the Sydney Flying Squadron in Kirribilli – is signed-on and ready to make the club magnificent
5. Capacity and commitment to invest over $1m worth of refurbishment in the Club
6. Support of the membership and wider community, including over 320 new members in the last month, taking total membership to over one thousand
7. A group of diverse professional members are ready to serve as a new Club Board of Directors
8. A number of working committees have been established to ensure the move to a new era is smooth, effectively managed and successful

MOSMAN ROWERS ENTERS A NEW ERA – MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

Mosman Rowers is entering a new era, with a stronger, renovated & re-invigorated club for our members and the Mosman Community. We have the support of the community and creditors to chart a course for the future, have secured an outstanding professional operator to take our offering to the next level, have plans to undertake over $1m worth of renovations to restore and renew the clubhouse, a new Board at the ready and we are finalising the details of a new agreement for lease with the RMS.

We will be family friendly and dog-friendly – which matters in Mosman! Exciting new discounts and benefits will be available to members through the Bird & Bear Group’s operations. Check them out here: https://www.birdandbear.com.au
