A Huge, Massive, Enormous THANK-YOU to all the helpers for the 2012 Raw Nationals and Pacific Invitational! Especially to the Melbourne Uni volunteer army that always shows up to make sure the job gets done, no matter what the size. I know there are still chalk bowls, a dais and odds and ends still in …

To the delight of thirty-ish MUWPC members and disappointment of Robert Wilks, the club’s Christmas Party and AGM rolled into Percy’s Bar on 9 December, 2011.

During the warmer months of 2012, MUWPC found itself venturing into the ancient art of Karaoke. With 15 muscled diaphragms packed into a small private room, FM Lounge was always going to erupt.

 Melbourne’s loss is Perth’s gain! On very short notice, the Flanagans, or as Rob affectionately named them, “Mr and Mrs Irish” have moved across the country to W.A.! However, I’m told it’s only temporary. Even so, this is sad news for the MUWPC as Club Vice-President, Marcus and Property Officer, Laura, became almost instaneously integrated …
