Probus Club Activities

Marathon Bridge: The Marathon Bridge Group plays two games a month from October to May. We hold our wind-up lunch in May. We play bridge to cultivate friendships. We never take the game seriously.  The group is open to all Probus members, Spouses, and Significant Others. Please come and enjoy the fun.  The plan is to resume this activity in the fall of 2023, given sufficient interest.

Dinner Group: Probus members and their partners meet monthly on the third Wednesday of each month to enjoy fine dining at local restaurants. Each month is a different restaurant hosted by a different member.  The Dinner Group is an excellent opportunity for Probus Members to enjoy a delicious meal with good company in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.

The Breakfast Club meets every 2nd Tuesday at the Sunnyside Grill on Prince Michael Drive.  The restaurant offers a full breakfast, tea or coffee only, or nothing at all if members only want to enjoy the camaraderie of their fellow Probus buddies.  Good friends, good food, and good conversation lead to an enjoyable atmosphere.  See the "Calendar" tab for dates of upcoming breakfasts.

Photograph Competition: The photo competition is open to all Probus Members and is conducted each Fall annually. The entrant's skill level and the category he chooses to compete in are considered by the judges. Entrants can use any style or type of camera they wish as winners are determined only on the quality of the photograph submitted.  ON HOLD.

Living Alone Group (LAG):

This group was expressly formed for members who live alone due to their spouses having passed away. The L.A.G. also encompasses Probus members who, for the most part, live alone due to spousal confinement in a long-term care facility. The group enjoys, among other things, good conversation, camaraderie, fellowship and funny stories, while having coffee or breakfast. Meetings are every Friday morning at a local Oakville restaurant.  Due to COVID, now a Zoom meeting at 10:00am Fridays.

Lunch & Pool Group:

This Group meets every Tuesday at noon at Monaghan's Sports Pub and Grill (1289 Marlborough Ct., Oakville - across from Sheridan College on Trafalgar, in the same plaza as Rabba's Fine Foods) for a tasty pub-style lunch, followed by a casual game of pool, or just a chat. The Group is a long-standing Probus Old Oakville activity. The camaraderie with fellow members is the prime reason for its longevity. Playing pool and enjoying a nice lunch is secondary to the enjoyment of good conversation, jokes, and laughter amongst the group. Members pay for lunch only – the pool is free.

Investment Club: Meetings begin with a general discussion on general investment interests including Economics, Politics, Technology, Interest Rates, and Stock Market Outlooks. We manage three mock portfolios – a growth portfolio, Dividend Income, and emerging markets.  Members also participate in an annual contest where three securities are selected. The Investment Club meets at 1:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month at St. Jude's Anglican Church in downtown Oakville.

Camera Club: The Camera Club allows your creative juices to flow. It promotes taking better photos that you can be proud of showing. The Camera Club meets irregularly based on the rate of submissions by club members. The object is to fine-tune the elements of composing your shots without having to overly think about it. Your photos, if you agree, can be reviewed and assessed at the next meeting by your fellow Club Members. Good-natured anecdotal comments usually follow – many your fellow members experienced with similar subjects.  ON HOLD.

Summer Golf: The Summer Golf Group is a leisurely way to enjoy the game of golf. It is open to Spouses, Significant Others, and Guests. Every Wednesday at the Oakville Executive Golf Course. Participants can either ride or walk, and we only play nine holes. You do not have to be a proficient golfer to play. On the contrary, our outings are designed to provide fun and camaraderie, not to show off our golf skills.
