Welcome to the New Year and a multitude of trips and activities for 2019.
It’s great to be back following my procedure last October. For six months (counting the Club trip to the Pilbara – Kimberley and Darwin), Steve Pearson (Vice President) has been acting as President – many thanks to Steve and the Management committee generally.
We will conduct a Social meeting on the 22nd January 2019 with guest speaker Tim Bowen from Implox. https://www.implox.com.au/index-old.html Tim will be discussing and demonstrating our newly purchased defibrillator.
A reminder regarding the AGM on the 26th March – with the assistance of many we will make light work of the tasks ahead in 2019.
After many years as Social Coordinator, Naomi Jolly is having a rest. Please contact a member of the Committee if you can assist with this role.
Volunteers are required for the annual Caravan & Camping Show for half day shifts either AM or PM over the period Wed 13th Feb to Sunday 17th Feb. Please email John O’Daly at firstname.lastname@example.org to offer assistance.
In the ever-changing world of communications, a development in 2018 will be of interest. Telstra once had the reputation for best coverage for mobile phones in remote areas – Optus is now challenging this with its Satellite Small Cell coverage strategy. Optus is now offering mobile services in previously unserviced areas especially National Parks in northern Australia. https://www.bit.com.au/news/optus-launches-small-cells-for-remote-mobilecoverage-435571
I’m looking forward to meeting as many members as is possible in an event-filled 2019.
