"Steering a safe course through our retirement years".
This is an invitation to retired – or about to be retired, active men and women of good character, living on the Hibiscus Coast, to become members of this recently established Club. Here you will be meeting up with others at future monthly gatherings - to enjoy conviviality and listen to excellent guest speakers.
Successful applicants will be invited to participate in low-cost outings to interesting places and events. For those who have an enthusiasm for keeping fit, our Rebus Ramblers of Gulf Harbour, meet weekly on a Monday morning for a 1-2 hour stroll to places near and far, followed by a refreshing coffee at a nearby Cafe.
Other "Interest Groups" already established include dining out, Mah Jong, Classic Cars and visits to the Auckland CBD. We have two quality luncheons during the year, one mid-year and the other pre-Christmas for members and partners.
Meetings are held at the Gulf Harbour Yacht Club, 1299 Laurie Southwick Parade, Gulf Harbour at 9.30am until noon on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (excluding January) After a short business session, one of our own members is a Club speaker (10-15 mins) followed by morning tea and then an external Guest Speaker. Meetings conclude by midday. The annual Subscription is $30 plus a “one off” $25 joining fee.
Our Club is the 50th Rebus Club in New Zealand and the 7th to be established in the Rodney District. Rebus is an organization which has its origins in the world-wide Probus movement which was a Rotary sponsored community service program.
However, unlike Rotary, we have no service obligations such as fund-raising or amenity establishment. Many of us have “been there, done that".
Now is the time of life to simply indulge ourselves with new friendships and leisure activities.

Steve Foster of "Hear Again" was our Guest Speaker and in a very professional and humorous manner, gave us a most entertaining and informative address on audiology with emphasis on issues affecting our age group
Our Club Speaker was none other than nonagenarian Roy Adlard who had the meeting in stitches with his boyhood account of life in the UK
In conjunction with the Hibiscus Coast Men's Club, 29 of us occupied two tables at Picador Restaurant, Stanmore Bay. The event was organized by George Tregidga.
President Neil has the pleasure of inducting four new members at our 13 April 2022 Club Day:
From L-R, Kathryn Officer, Peter Bignall, Nancy Hewitson and Colin Hewitson.
Our Club Speaker was David Kilsby on his hobby of building and flying model radio-controlled aircraft. Although a farmer, David has had a life-time passion for aviation and obtained his own licence many years ago.
Our April Guest Speaker was Ian Dunwoodie, traveller extraordinaire. He regailed us with accounts of his many world-wide travelling experiences and stories about some of the notable hands he has shaken.
Our Club was joined by the Rebus Club of Hibiscus Coast in a joint visit to the Classic Car Museum, Hamilton on the 16th February. This was a "first" between two local Clubs and was enthusiastically supported by some 29 members.
Our first meeting for 2022 was held on the 9th February with a good turn-out of members in spite of the concern felt by some over Omicron safety issues. Three prospective members were welcomed. President Judi Lee was a substitute for an external speaker with her subject:
"The jigsaw puzzle of Genetics and disease control".
Our Club speaker was Keith Handley with an amusing recount of his teenage days in the NZ Military.
