OUR PROGRAM OF REGULAR ACTIVITIES

Dine out with friends

Dine outs are held in most months of the year at venues in and around our locality. We select from restaurants with a variety of cuisines and menus designed for groups, and sometimes visit clubs on the North Shore who cater for functions.  Dine-outs are held variously in the evening or as luncheons, and advertised in our monthly Bulletin.

Outings

A half or full day Outing is organised during most months. We have enjoyed outings to Sydney Observatory, the Qantas Museum, Palm Beach Ferry trip, Sydney Bus Museum and the Riverboat Postman trip on the Hawkesbury River from Brooklyn. Our September outing is to the Sydney Tram Museum at Loftus.  A wide range of interesting venues, at affordable prices, often using your OPAL card.

Theatre and Movies

This year groups have attended performances at Glen St Theatre, The Concourse at Chatswood, and Last Night of the Proms and West Side Story at the Opera House.

We also attend a Movie most months, usually at Roseville Cinema.

Walks

An organised walk is a monthly activity, apart from the two hottest months of the year.  Our walks have mainly been in the North Shore area, the foreshores of Sydney Harbour, the northern beaches, the southern beaches, but some have been further afield.  Recent walks have included Centennial Park, Lake Parramatta Reserve, Warriewood Wetlands and Circular Quay to Barangaroo.

Tours

The Club organises an annual Tour.  Recent tours have been to Norfolk Island, a 13-day tour of West Australia (with 11 members returning on the Indian Pacific Train back to Sydney). For 2019 we have tours to Bright in Victoria, and to Toowoomba for the spring festival via the NSW North coast and Lamington NP.

Our tour scheduled later this year is 3 days Mudgee, NSW.

Music Group

Meetings are held in members’ homes and offer two hours of recorded music and social contact including morning tea. Programmes are selected by the host each month and all musical tastes are catered for, including jazz, country and western and musical theatre, with the emphasis being on classical music. Printed illustrated programmes provide details of the musical selections.

Bridge

The Bridge Group meets monthly with the aim of providing relaxing, non-competitive and sociable play. Pre-sorted hands in 24 Duplicate Boards are prepared for each session, with two or three tables of four regularly attending.  Some spouses who are not Probus members also join in, and all look forward to their Bridge.

Bowls

During the period April to September social games are held with other clubs.  In July/August/September all clubs on the upper north shore compete for the Probus Shield and the prestige that goes with it.  The only downside is that the winning club has to organise the event next year, which could be seen as a penalty and not a reward!!

We have been competitors in this event for many years, but are currently ‘in recess’ as we cannot field a team of 6 players at an appropriate standard.

Golf

Several members play regularly at various courses, but we do not currently have a Probus Club golf activity group.
