Michael Gaffney – The Headline Act

.

A very pleasant afternoon was anticipated by the Mollymook Ocean Beach swimmers heading off to the Bawley Point Winery to be entertained by none other than our very own man Michael Gaffney, a man of many hats starring in the band called The BLUE MOON CAFE all the way from Canberra.

“What sort of music” everyone enthusiastically asked Michael? “Yeah man say we just call it a collectic I don’t know music”!! (whatever that’s supposed to mean??)

They were all nervous Nellie’s at first, worried that the Canberra Feds gave them a clear warning arrests would be made if they played anywhere less than a few hours drive from Canberra. Especially after the debacle caused when many screaming fans of all genders were throwing an assortment of underwear etc onto the stage.

There was pandemonium as Mike stood there with guitar in hand looking like a mannequin on display in an adults only shop.

After two hours of non stop collectic I don’t know music the Bawley Winery security, namely a band of patrolling geese called it a day and went into attack mode squawking “Enough Enough”.

Seriously though, it was a great afternoon of excellent musical entertainment. Many thanks to Michael and the band for putting on such a fantastic performance.

“DEFINITELY” a must to see.

The 2016 BIG4 Bungalow Park MAKAI Cup was conducted in ideal conditions on Saturday February 13, with a strong nor-east wind whipping up the ocean allowing the paddlers to ‘surf the waves’ with their sleek crafts in their downwind 22 Km race from Sussex Inlet to Ulladulla Harbour.

The peloton comprised 98 paddlers that included the 2015 NZ Sportswoman of the year Teneale Hatton.

Members from visiting clubs were in awe of the local organisers who did a marvelous job with 30 support boats and crew in the water plus the Navy Helicopter providing overhead surveillance.
