We are experiencing an unusually dry start to summer highlighting the need to be constantly vigilant for Bushfires during our Summer trips.     For strategies and sources of information refer to the materials distributed by Penny Kazla from the CFS during her recent Social meeting presentation.

Special thanks for the support of the Committee and particularly acting President Steve Pearson during our Club winter trip and Secretary Simon Forrest as I attended my Dad as he recovered from surgery.

The presentation by SAPOL on electronic fraud has been postponed until early 2019.

For those wanting to replenish their wine stores, a tasting and order session will be conducted with wines available at the November Social meeting.
