Thanks to the generosity of many members the aging PGYC bar has been replaced by a stylish new one, which was recently christened with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Built under the supervision of Club Director, Jurgen Langemeier, the new bar was actually designed with input from members, who voted to keep the semi circular theme.

The bar has been named the John Ridsdel Memorial bar in honor of a member and former director who lost his life tragically in the southern Philippines.

The ribbon cutting ceremony turned into a full on party with music provided by a live band, however the band’s task was made easy with members taking over microphone and doing most of the singing.

Snacks were served and it was standing room only around the new bar with everyone voting on the superb joinery and fine timber that went into it.

The Commodore rang the bell to provide drinks for the generous members whose donations made the project possible.
