So exciting we have just ordered the 2nd piece of equipment to go into Logan’s Adventure Playground.
Also in addition to the The Saturn Carousel going in, we will also be erecting the fence which is made up of all the personalised pickets and business posts. So if you want your family or business name etched in history at the playground head over and order your picket or post today.
Check out the attached link of the Saturn Carousel and let us know what you think.
Wow – I know it looks pretty impressive doesn’t it. This is the proposed STAGE 2 for Logan’s Adventure Playground. We don’t want to make the kids wait another year or so to see it happen, lets keep the momentum going and get this done sooner rather than later.
You can help by … telling everyone you know to get on board! We have already had such much support since the flying fox opened. Seabreeze, Airlie Fitness, Weddings Whitsunday, Obstacles gone Mad. Its been a great week.
We have sponsorship packages available, or you could buy a family or business post, we always need prizes for events, or if none of them suit you just get in touch I am sure we can find a way for you to assist.
We have a fantastic community and how good will it feel to know we built this amazing playground together.

Our very first piece of equipment will be open on Sunday 15th February. At 10am, the mayor will say a few words and cut the ribbon and the winners of the talent show will get the 1st and 2nd go down the 30ft flying fox.
We will also the bbq fired up for a sausage sizzle, some over sized board games, paper planes competition and much more.
Come on down to see what we have achieved and what we have planned for stages 2 & 3.
Now thats what you call a flying fox. Installed in December expected to open in February – a long time coming but everyone agrees it looks great. Some delays with opening as we need to enclose the storm water pipe that runs along the end. Of course we want to open it with some fanfare and are planning a fun day & sausage sizzle along with the winners of our talent show last August to be the first ones down. Watch this space for more information.
The earthworks are not far from being completed and that means we can start to shop, flying foxes have been quoted on and we are ready to order – yippee. Very exciting time, wish we had a few more weeks up our sleeve before Christmas but there you go. All being well the flying fox should be in and ready to use. Ooooops hope I haven’t jinxed it 😉 STAGE 2 will start a little later than expected but we hoping to get a wriggle on early in 2015 with some more pieces of equipment. You can help by coming to one of our events or buying a picket. Money raised will go towards making STAGE 2 bigger and better.
Well we have had a fantastic few weeks. Council have approved and will be providing the earthworks for STAGE 1 of the playground. The committee are so excited we will finally see something happening on site.
As part of stage 1 we will be constructing the front fence so if you would like your family name or business name be quick and buy a picket or a post now. It is our mission to sell at least another 100 pickets before the work starts. This money will go along way towards fundraising for stage 2 which we hope we can also start this year. So get on board and order your picket now!
The picket orders are coming in fast and with the introductory rate due to expire 31st August we are expecting a lot more to come in by the end of the month.
Payment plans are now available – just contact us via the picket order form.
Wow what a night. Waterline at Shingley Beach last Friday was a great night to be out and a great night for the playground. A number of people pulled together to raise a whopping $11,501.65 for the playground. A massive thank you goes out to Steve Brooks for first buying the auction prize at Claire’s Amateur Chef at home night and then allowing it to be used as a fundraiser. Tony for upping the stakes to 60 people instead of 6 and for free loan of Waterline and being the MC extraordinaire. Claire (our chief organiser), husband Bert for helping out in the kitchen, on the floor and with the auction by buying not selling. Rod and Belinda Ramsay for a delicious 3 course meal. Mark Connell & Amber Skinner for exceptional assistance in the kitchen & Brooke (Mr Bones), Aimee (Quota International) and Kylie (PAG) for help on the floor. Finally to all the many many people who donated prizes. This was such a fun night and resulted in a outstanding final tally on the night. Watch this space for the next fundraiser to be held at Shingley – you wont want to miss it. Kellie
