Wynnum Manly Leagues Club
There are big changes underway at Wynnum Manly Leagues licensed Club, on Wondall Road.
Long term manager Geoff Crowe, secretary to the Board Peter Doyle and director Lew Doyle are all leaving the Club.
Despite a strong operating profit, the Club extensions and the purchase of another house to house players resulted in a substantial drop in cash and cash equivalents. Having said that the Club still has over $2.75m in the bank and no debts worth mentioning. Nevertheless, the pressure will be on new Chairman, Bruce Baxter and his board and the new CEO to deliver increased profits to stop the decline in cash.
Best wishes to the Leagues Club which is a great community club which supports not only the Wynnum Manly Seagulls Football team but also school sport and local community groups.
The Club provided sponsorship to 39 groups and donations to 33 during the year.

Sell public assets to subsidise a foreign billionaire
It's a reckless, desperate move. Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has just announced he will help pay for Indian coal mogul Adani to build Abbot Point and the Carmichael mine. In other words, Premier Newman will sell public assets to subsidise a foreign billionaire to build a massive coal port on the Great Barrier Reef coast.
He hasn't given any specific figures, but we do know Premier Newman will give money that could be used on education, police or healthcare to subsidise a coal mine most analysts agree will never turn a profit.
On every level, this is lunacy. The project could be economically unviable. The only reason Premier Newman is using taxpayers' money is that banks say it's far too risky to touch. Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Citi Bank and Barclays are amongst the banks to have already walked away. It's a bad investment that will harm our Great Barrier Reef and devastate our climate. And if it does ever make money, any profits will go straight overseas.
Adani wanted to sell the coal from its Carmichael mine to India, but now India might not even take it. The Indian energy minister just announced it will stop coal imports in two to three years. There is no one left to buy this dirty, expensive coal, but Premier Newman is still willing to spend public money to maintain his pride and chummy connections with the mining industry.
