Community Involvement

RGD Group is an active member of its local community as well as being active in the development industry,

RGD Director, Ron Grabbe is President of Mooloolaba Outrigger Canoe Club (MOCC) and on the committee at a national level. MOCC’s senior men’s team recently won the masters division of the ‘Molokai Hoe’ – a gruelling 66-kilometre race staged between Molokai and Oahu islands in Hawaii. In fact, they’ve won it 14 times in the past 20 years. Ron has paddled in every one.

The club, along with Sunshine Coast Council and Quad Park Sporting Stadium has also been instrumental in securing the National Sprint Titles at Lake Kawana for another four years and have recently won the bid on behalf of Australian Outrigger Canoe Racing Association (AOCRA) for the rights to hold the World Outrigger Titles at Lake Kawana in 2016. The World Title bid is expected to bring over 3000 competitors and more than $6 million dollars projected spend to the coast.

We participate in the upgrading of public facilities in the Kawana Island Park, the construction of a community pontoon on Kawana Island and the new Mooloolaba boat ramp facility. We are also an active participant in the Kawana Island Residents Group and the major sponsor of junior outrigger competitions in the water off Double Bay.
