Hon. Secretary

Tim joined the Board in 2017 taking on the Legal and Policy portfolio.  A month later he also took on the Honorary Secretary role.

Apart from a camping trip at Jerusalem Creek aged 7 Tim didn’t discover Eildon again until he was doing first year law in the 1970s when he enjoyed a week’s fishing on a cabin cruiser moored on a swing mooring at the Boat Club.

In the mid 90’s he started hiring houseboats from Peppin Point and became hooked on houseboats.

In 2001 he, his wife Bronwyn and family started looking in earnest for their first houseboat.  Easter 2002 saw them purchase their first houseboat Dunaff Head at Jerusalem Creek.  It was an easy purchase as Bronwyn was in Sydney where their son Emmett was competing in the national kayak races.  In June 2006 they joined Eildon Boat Club.  Easter 2008 saw a need for a boat upgrade and along came ‘Esprit’.  Then too, eventually came the GFC and they were privileged to own two houseboats for four years.

The family love what houseboats offer, and they enjoy the lifestyle immensely.  Their son Gareth and wife Coby, Travis and his wife Jess, Emmett and his wife Shaina (who met on the lake as Shaina’s Dad then owned ‘Under Seige’), their daughter Adele and their 10 grandchildren aged 7 and under join them on the lake whenever possible.

Tim is the Principal of Mepstead Lawyers established in Melbourne in 1985 and now operating in Pakenham and Yarra Junction.  Tim has been actively involved on committees since his days as a first-year law student.




Pam first visited Lake Eildon to camp in the late 1970s. Then, together with her husband, Gary, and their three children, they began hiring houseboats in the early 2000s. Pam and Gary bought their first houseboat, Rumours, and became a member of the EBC in April 2012.Since then they have bought Allegria and renovated it to become Mambo.

Pam has a love of the outdoors, and Lake Eildon is the perfect location for immersing herself and her family in nature. Her pastimes at the Lake involve a lot of bushwalks as well as the usual pursuits on the water.

Pam has spent 20 years teaching with the Education Department in various schools, mostly in the role of Specialist Phys Ed teacher. She has held leadership positions and been included in numerous local council and educational committees. Later, she retrained to become a Licenced Builder in the state of Victoria and ran her own successful Property Development business.

Now, with more time on her hands, Pam has interests in travel, mentoring, the environment, the AFL men and women’s Bulldogs club, and now a keen interest in the EBC.

Pam brings another viewpoint to board discussions, has a strong belief in transparency, communication and good governance. Her overall focus will be on what’s best for members now while looking to the future to keep the Club sustainable for generations to come.

Meant 2 Be (previously owned ‘Meant2Play) 

Previously living in Jindabyne NSW for 12 years, Gerald and his wife Melinda  moved to Victoria around 10 years ago, first in Geelong and then settling in Footscray.

Gerald has been involved in the hotel industry for 25 years and is currently Franchise Relationships Manager with Quest. 

Having spent a lot of time on the lake whilst in Jindabyne they missed the ‘fresh water cleanse’, so Lake Eildon is now their happy place. 

They found the Lake back in 2015 when they were actually looking to buy a house in Eildon and ended up buying a houseboat instead! They now spend most of their summers at the Lake and are well entrenched in the boating and EBC lifestyle.  

Gerald joined the Board in February 2021 and brings with him a desire to get more involved in the club’s future together with his strong background in business, hospitality and finance(having also managed one of the two largest Westpac branches in Geelong).
