Use the back door to enter the Tura Centre


As you know, the centre was involved in a car crash recently. Luckily, no-one was hurt, except the centre and the errant car. Also luckily, we are still able to use the main room of the centre, though we must come and go via the back door.

And as you know from a recent email to all members, U3A office staff who attend the centre on Friday afternoons to help people with new memberships or renewals and take bookings for our Christmas Party have temporarily decamped to the Sapphire Club between 1:30 and 3:30pm on Friday 11 and 25.

Annual Christmas Party


Our Annual Christmas Party is scheduled for November 30 at the Sapphire Club in Merimbula. U3A will be providing a 50 per cent subsidy for the cost of the meal, as has been the case in the past. Yep, that time of the year is fast approaching.

Wednesday November 30 2022 at Club Sapphire
Commencing at 11:30am.

There will be a three course Christmas lunch at noon.
Bring your dancing shoes as Paul Daynes’ band will be playing, as well as other entertainment we have organised.
Members - $20 per head
Purchase your own drinks.

You can book in person at the Tura Beach Centre office on Fridays between 1:30 and 3:30pm or use the button below to book online.

Please notify the event organiser (u3ascsec@gmail.com) of any special dietary requirements before November 13.

Course Leader Vacancies


Program Teamsupporting all of our course leaders, maintaining the MyU3A database of courses, identifying new course and one-off opportunities and supporting new course leaders to set up and advertise their courses. We provide training- just basic IT skills needed.

New Course and One-Off LeadersWe really need to build our program offerings to keep our members engaged and to attract new members. Any skills, interests - whether professional or hobby - are potential courses or one-offs, and we'll provide as much support as the potential leader needs.

• One-Off or Workshop Leaders Bermagui U3A

Whether you are a current or former U3ASC presenter, we would be most appreciative if you are prepared to reprise your one-off for Bermagui U3A, as part of a reciprocal arrangement.

Two of our most popular courses are currently not operating due to their Course Leaders moving away from the area. These courses are Critiquing Cinema and the Computer Group.

If you would like to see these Courses continue, and would be prepared to give the Course Leader position a go, please contact the Program Team Leader:

Sue O’Loughlin, at programs.u3asc1@gmail.com OR 0439 809 237.

Enrolling in U3ASC Courses


The details of all courses and one-off events are published on the U3ASC website before the start of each new school year, with an update prior to the commencement of each new school term. New activities can also be published as and when they are arranged, so I recommend that you keep a regular check on our website.

Program details can be found by selecting the Courses tab.
