You may have noticed some changes on our website and Facebook page. We are now the club formerly known as ODCB!

Ground Lighting Upgrade to LED with assistance from Community Gambling Grant 

Replacing the lighting enabled us to continue running evening classes and Agility and Obedience Trials especially during the summer months with it is often too hot to do so during the day.  The old lighting was put up in the 1970's and was starting to fail, was expensive to run and below standard lighting levels for Agility Competition.  After we were successful with the grant application one of the power poles fell over into our big gum tree - not great timing but it encouraged us to get moving on the project.  Many thanks to the small hard working team that got the job done - Murray worked the lighting plan over many many times until we were happy with the design and Kevin our groundsman overseeing the underground cabling so that we don't have to worry about trees falling on cables.  Chris de Jong our electrician was very patient with us, Logan Power Poles were great to work with and Tiger Lights supplied the LED's.

January 2012:

One year after the devastating floods President Dianne Muller and 2011 Clubmen of the Year Leonie Crowe and Ruth Raymond attended a Community Groups Recovery afternoon tea, sharing pikelets with Premier Anna Bligh, and Queensland Reconstruction Authority's Major General Richard Wilson and QRA's Mike Spenser who was instrumental in assisting ODCB to replace the damaged fence.  

Bunnings Oxley hosted an ODCB Community Groups BBQ. A huge thank you to all our volunteers, cooking, serving and cleaning to help raise much needed funds.

ODCB has been successful in gaining funds for replacement of our toilet block. Options are being researched and exciting plans will be announced soon.
