Lights off for the Bogong Moths

Lights off for the Bogong Moths

The RMB are hosting an online webinar along with all other Victorian Alpine Resorts next Wednesday evening titled –“Lights off for the Bogong Moths”

 

QUOTE

We would love as many Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Community members to be a part of this activity.

The focus of the webinar is to further educate our alpine community about the importance of the Bogong Moths and their role in the conservation of the incredibly cute and endangered Mountain Pygmy Possum population. This all segues quite nicely as we also celebrate Biodiversity Month through September. https://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/biodiversity-month

The duration of the webinar should be around 20 minutes, and we have an amazing key note presenter in Marissa Parrott from Zoo’s Victoria.

We will be joined on the night with RMB and community members from our other alpine resorts of Mt Hotham, Falls Creek and Mt Baw Baw (Lake Mountain is TBC), plus there will be a short Q&A session at the end of the session where participants will be able to ask questions of our presenters and RMB Environmental Services Team.

We ask that all those who wish to participate to pre-register their interest, and they will then receive a secure link to the MS Teams platform on the night.

More information, and details as to how to register can be found on our RMB Facebook event page here:https://fb.me/e/Y1HSDCN2 please freely share this via social channels as you see fit.

You are also able to simply share the following link, taking anyone directly to the MS Teams registration portal:https://tinyurl.com/9jz7vvcw

Vale Cliff Restarick

Vale Cliff Restarick

RESTARICK, Clifford

03/09/1933 - 18/08/2021

It is with great sadness we announce that Cliff Restarick died peacefully on Wednesday 18th August, after a short battle with cancer. Loving husband of Jenny (deceased February this year). Survived by his children Jonathan and Kylie, father-in-law to Heidi, grand-dog Ruby and dearly loved sister Valerie.

Cliff was an active member and leader of so many communities across music, skiing, probus, and science (CSIRO). Cliff served for many years (around 30 years) as a Committee Member and Treasurer of the Mt Buller Ratepayers Association.

QUOTE – Ron Edwards

Apart from his association with the MBRA, I also had a relationship with Cliff & Jenny through both music & charities. Cliff's group occasionally played with a good friend of ours, jazz singer, Bev Sheehan. Mary & I attended a number of their performances. Cliff & Jenny were regular attendees at the Fred Hollows fundraising dinners which we ran in the 80's & 90's & his group played at the early dinners. Their significant contribution to so many areas as well as their unassuming personalities & charitable outlook mean that they will be greatly missed by many communities.

QUTOE – Chris Wilson.

Cliff played the double bass in a trad jazz group who often played at the Bentleigh Bowls Club where Barbara and I attended a few of their concerts. In addition to his long involvement with Mt Buller, Cliff was also a keen Mt Hotham skier. He and I would often meet and ski together on the Blue Ribbon run when it was open, then share some nice wine at the CSIR Club Lodge. I will miss those days and I will miss Cliff's friendship.

Cliff was an extraordinary person who lived for the mountain life and its communities.

The commitment he and Jenny gave to the stakeholders on Mt Buller was never fully appreciated as he was typical of his generation of getting things done and not needing recognition.

A magnificent life. May he now rest in peace with Jenny.

Apartment CovidSafe Plan Template

Following the release of the Mt Buller CovidSafe Plan MBRA noted that there  was no reference or material provided for apartment buildings. MBRA understands that Government regards Apartment buildings as commercial if one or more rent their premises, hence a Covid Safe Plan is required and the applicable attestation provided to RMB before the building is occupied.

The MBRA has developed the attached template as a guide for Apartment buildings to assist in developing a suitable plan. Apartment head lessees should consider their particular circumstances and modify the template to suit and to meet Government guidelines and requirements.

Don’t forget that RMB requires an attestation be provided as per the RMB Plan, viz-

Email to property@mtbuller.com.au

 

I, xxxxxxxxx , on behalf of , XYZ Apartments, confirm that we have read and understood the Mt Buller & Mt Stirling Integrated COVID Safe Plan and associated guidelines, and that has implemented its own COVID Safe plan in accordance with these guidelines.

No warranty is provided that the template is complete, error free and those using must satisfy themselves that they have met Government/RMB requirements.

 

Hard Waste Changed Arrangements

Hard Waste Changed Arrangements

When having lodge “cleanouts” please DO NOT put any hard waste items in Village rubbish huts or on the roadside as our waste contractor will not collect any hard waste items. 

This is considered illegal dumping and heavy penalties do apply if any hard rubbish is left in or near the rubbish huts. It is also very costly for Resort Management staff to continually collect, manage and dispose of these unwanted items. You are responsible for your own hard waste and you must take items to an appropriate disposal facility (see below). 

Where to take RECYCLABLE TIMBER AND STEEL ONLY: 

  • Clean, sorted and recyclable timber and steel can be dropped at Boggy Corner Waste Transfer Station. 
  • Open hours: 10.00am - 11.00am every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (non-snow season only).
  • Contact Waste Contractor on 0427 411 418 well in advance to arrange access to the Transfer Station

Where to take ALL OTHER HARD WASTE ITEMS: 
At your own cost, other hard waste items (such as those listed) can be taken to Mansfield Resource Recovery Centre at 163 Monkey Gully Road, Mansfield: 

  • Mattresses 
  • Furniture (including couches/ chairs/ sofas, white goods, electrical equipment, appliances) 
  • Ski equipment 
  • Tyres 
  • Batteries 
  • Paint 
  • Construction waste

The below image is an example of what NOT to place in garbage sheds.

Duty of Care - Ski Club Lodges

Duty of Care - Ski Club Lodges - During Bushfire Period

When last summer's bushfires were threatening our alpine resorts, the question was asked, "What is the Duty of Care obligation to occupiers (members and guests) of ski club lodges."  The Alpine Resorts Working Group (of which the MBRA is a member) sought and obtained legal advice on this issue.  This advice is available to all our members to read and we suggest that members should consider and adopt the recommendations.

The document entitled "Memorandum of Advice - The Duty of Care of Occupiers of Ski Lodges & Bushfires" can be viewed HERE.
