The Open Day was a great success and HUGE thanks to the army of volunteers who supported the event. There were approximately 450 visitors. Volunteers included 23 working in the administration building, and 53 tutors and 10 volunteers working in the Innovation Centre. About 100 new members signed up during this past week. The assistance and involvement by the University of the Sunshine Coast was vital to the success. Thank you to all who volunteered and our wonderful entertaining Ukulele players. Colin Maddocks
