Weipa Fishing Classic

Power Tynan took a stand at the annual Weipa Fishing Classic held from June 6 to 8. Amanda, Phil and Dan made the long journey to attend the event and a great time was had by all!

June 30 Celebrations

Power Tynan’s annual June 30 celebrations were held on Friday, 27th June. The theme was for staff to dress up as something beginning with ‘P’ or ‘T’ (for Power Tynan).

It was great to see everybody taking part in the fun and we had a variety of costumes on the day, ranging from Palm Tree to Papa Smurf, from Teapot to Taco.

Staff in each office were asked to place their votes for Best Dressed. In Toowoomba, Fiona won as Trevor the Truckie, and Morena Howard took out the award in Stanthorpe for her portrayal of Penguin from Batman.

Baby News

A huge congratulations to Boh Burima and his wife Beth on the arrival of Henry Bohdan Burima, a beautiful 8lb bundle who came into the world on July 16, and to Lauren Golding and husband Luke who welcomed Lillian Margaret McInnes on July 20.

Sarah Pearce returned from maternity leave at the end of September and is working Tuesdays to Thursdays in our Stanthorpe office.

Wedding Bells

On Saturday, 6th September, Chelsea Brunckhorst married her partner Kurt Vedelago in an intimate ceremony held at Mason Wines in Stanthorpe surrounded by a small group of their closest family and friends. We wish the happy couple all the best for their new life together.

Grand Final Win!

Congratulations to Brett McEvoy, who was a part of Stanthorpe United’s eighth straight grand final victory after defeating Ballandean 1-0. With three minutes left to go in the second half, Brett managed to strike the ball into the back of the net, scoring the only goal of the game and sealing the win for his team.

National Blood Donor Week

National Blood Donor Week is an annual event held by Australian Red Cross Blood Service, to recognise the outstanding, life-saving contributions of blood, bone marrow and Anti-D donors.  

This year our own Don Carlson was acknowledged for his remarkable support of this cause, donating over 200 times. Don first gave blood when the Red Cross visited USQ when he was studying in the '70s, and during the past decade he has been donating plasma each fortnight.


Congratulations to our 2011 scholarship recipient Kristelle McCleverty, who has completed her Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting with distinction, and to Nicole Rametta of our Stanthorpe office who is now a qualified CPA. Well done ladies!

Farewell Megan!

After 13 years with Power Tynan, our CFO Megan Lipp has decided it is time for a change of pace. Megan started with the firm in 2001 as a senior accountant and progressed right through to being an equity owner and Chief Financial Controller. We wish to thank Megan very much for her contribution to Power Tynan over the years and we wish her all the best for the future.
