The first meeting this year for the Blueskin Youth Centre Association
(BYCA) was held on 8th February 2011. The newly elected committee
comprises of Paul Sirota (Chair), Bridgit Meyer, Rachel Miller
(Secretary/Treasurer), Paul Clements, Louise Booth and Marie and
As many residents of Blueskin Bay will have noticed, the construction
of a multi-purpose hard-court surface (Tennis, Netball etc.) and
adjoining skatepark on Bland Park is well under way.
This project has been made possible largely due to a substantial
donation from the BYCA to the Blueskin A and P Society for the express
purpose of constructing such a facility on Bland Park for the Youth
and wider community of Blueskin Bay.
Members of both committees have already received many positive
comments, thank you, and all going well, we hope to see the completion
of the facility in the near future.
The project is a community led initiative and some members of the
community have already taken the opportunity to come and help out.
However, there have also been reports of community members interested
in helping out, but that are unsure of when and where to offer their
assistance. If this is the case for you, Louise Booth has kindly
offered to record the details of volunteers (Name and Phone number) at
the Blueskin Bay Library. By using this list we can contact volunteers
when there are tasks to be done that do not interfere with building
work currently in progress.
The BYCA is looking forward to another exciting year and is poised to
begin new projects. We will endeavour to keep you informed of our
progress so watch for pieces in the Blueskin News or even on the
blackboard at Waitati.
