MUWPC's Australia Day 2015

Straight into 2015 and another Australia Day! MUWPC’s yearly tradition of the Australia Day Barbecue was hosted by Sam Opat himself, many thanks to Sam for the hospitality!

George Seeger's "Draw me like one of your French Girls"

Of course a pool party wouldn’t be complete without some snaps of the posers, George Seegar even gave us his brave rendition of “Draw me like one of your French Girls”.

At MUWPC we’ll be looking forward to a year filled with gains, and maybe one day Wilks will show us the true path to “fame, money & women”.


2015 Australia Day Training

January 22, 2015

It’s that time of year again, and by that time of year we mean training on Australia Day! Training on the Australia Day Monday (January 26th 2015) will be from 9am – 1pm and as always please get in as early as possible as it is always a rush to get through these morning training sessions!

Volunteer BBQ & Robert Wilks’s 60th Birthday!

October 10, 2014

MUWPC’s working bee over the weekend got our storage cage cleaned up, our inventories tallied and our volunteers filled up on Con Barbakos’s amazing souvlaki! A big thank you to all the volunteers for their efforts throughout the year, it would not have run so smoothly without such a strong community. We also took this opportunity to give the first part of our gift from MUWPC as a club to Robert Wilks for his 60th birthday! Thanks to all those who contributed!

Robert Wilks and his pen!
