A Corn Hole Tournament was held on the 18th February 2023 on the RBPOA tennis court, organised by Kelly and Mike DP,  this was a fantastic event bringing people together for a day of fun with everyone bringing their own food and drink to enjoy.  The Tournament was won by Tracy and Josh Roberto, check out their trophy!  Mike DP took some great aerial shots during the Tournament.  We hope this great event will be held each year, check out RBPOA Events below for when the next one will be.

EVENTS

Here we will list any events that RBPOA are organising or outside events happening within Rainbow Bay.  We will also tell you about any events happening in nearby settlements that you may be interested in.  

RBPOA EVENTs as follows

RBPOA litter pick-up

TBC

We aim to do a big litter pick-up in and around Rainbow Bay twice a year when most or all Members are on the island.  Our last big clean-up was in February 2022 when the Queen's Highway was combed by volunteers.  A big 'thank you' to those Members who kindly pick up litter on their own accord throughout the year, especially along Wandering Shore Drive, Rainbow Bay Beach and the Car Park.  Let's try and keep our beautiful sub-division clean and tidy!  All help is gratefully received, so please take a moment to pick up trash when you see it.  Our next Litter Pick-Up in 2023 has yet to be confirmed, the date will be posed in time for Members to plan accordingly. 

RBPOA jumble sale fundraiser

TBC

We would like to establish an annual jumble sale (rummage sale) fundraiser which is held in the RBPOA Building along Lazy Shore Road. This is a great way for Members to donate and get rid of unwanted or unused items.  Volunteers organize, sort and tag items for sale.  This event is the Association's best fundraiser and we would love for it to be an annual event.  Our last jumble sale in Spring 2022 was a great success.  Much needed funds were raised to purchase the fire trailer and equipment for the neighborhood.  The next jumble sale date will be confirmed and posted.  Please hang on to your stuff for donation to the sale.

RBPOA halloween trunk or treat

October 2023

This was a new event organized by Rosie Graham last year 31st October 2022 and it was a great success!  So much so, we are going to hold this event each year. Details to be provided in due course.

RBPOA members party

TBC

We are hoping to introduce an Annual Party to help bring our Members together to get acquainted.  There are a lot of new homeowners in Rainbow Bay, and more coming. "Meet and Greets" can be so much fun!  The event may be held on Rainbow Bay Beach/Nentwig Park or in our Association Building along Lazy Shore Road.  Bring drinks and nibbles, mingle and have some fun!  Stay tuned for more information.

corn hole tournament

TBC

This is hopefully going to be a new annual event, the last one was organized by Mike and Kelly DP on Saturday 18th February 2023 and was a great success, fun was had by all who took part with the winners Tracy and Josh Roberto presented with a fantastic handmade Corn Hole Champs trophy!  Details of the next Tournament to be announced.
