E News 8 June 2016


Please note the change of location for our event on Sunday.

With Dripstone Park and surrounds under reconstruction, president Tony Cox has been busy behind the scenes gaining permits and making the necessary changes to sanctioning etc to enable the move to Knuckey Lagoon Recreation Reserve - details below.

Work is progressing on our new event calendar for 2016 | 2017.  We hope to have that finalised soon.  In the meantime there are a zillion dry season events coming up. Enjoy!


Great to see we already have a number of people taking up the new member offer.  This will allow them to participate at our event on Sunday as well as having valid membership to 30 June 2017.

If you know someone who has been wanting to join, now is the perfect time to encourage them to do so.

New members, please feel free sign up and/or to share this link.

Note to current members - your membership renewal date is not until 1 July 16 (either auto renew or manual depending on how you have set your renewal options).
