All senior male members have been divided into A Grade and B Grade for Estuary competitions based on a rating system. All new members, except those with acknowledged ability, will be placed in B grade, and their ratings reviewed after each and every competition for their first six weigh-ins.

    Revised 2019

    All Social Clubs are formed under the Constitution of the Caloundra Power Boat Club Limited (adopted 28 September 2008), in particular clause 24 titled ‘Interest Groups’. Therefore these Clubs must abide by the Constitution and all legislation that directs the operations of the Club.

    All funds generated by fund raising activities on Club premises by Social Clubs or Interest Groups must be processed through the Caloundra Power Boat Club internal clubs financial accounts system immediately following the activity. In addition, the Social Club that generates the funds must also lodge, with the funds, a return/s providing details of the funds raised and the prizes awarded. General and accounting records must be kept correctly, recording and explaining the transactions for the activities, for a period of five years. * Social Clubs that have regular weekly/monthly competitions where income and expenditure occur may be required by the Caloundra Power Boat Club Board to produce audited financial statements. The Social Club must pay for the cost of the audit. *

    All expenditure of funds held in the internal clubs financial accounts system, other than minor purchases/refunds made through petty cash, must have Board approval prior to commitment of any purchase by way of written notification to and from the Board.

    All sponsorship arrangements or agreements with a Social Club or Interest Group from the Caloundra Power Boat Club are reviewed annually on application to the Board from the Social Club or Interest Group.

    All social functions, such as Presentation Nights, are to be held at the Caloundra Power Boat Club.

    The Board encourages Social Club or Interest Group members to use the Club barbecue facilities for any social occasion.

    With the exception of private sponsorship prizes, all other prizes, where practical, are to be in the form of Caloundra Power Boat Club vouchers that are redeemable through the Quarterdeck Restaurant, bottle shop or Portside Cafe.

    Volunteers selling raffle tickets or carrying out any other work in any capacity for a not-for-profit association at the Caloundra Power Boat Club are considered workers under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011. Therefore these volunteers are afforded protection by the Club if they undertake their volunteer duties in accordance with the CPBC’s Drug and Alcohol Policy (HR004) for employees. This policy states that:

    • The consumption of alcohol or the intoxication of an employee immediately before or during working hours is strictly prohibited and constitutes serious misconduct. Such activities will result in the immediate termination of the employee.

    This means that all raffle ticket sellers should not consume alcohol immediately before, or during the process of, selling raffle tickets or drawing the raffle prizes.
