Helen and I are scheduled to leave on the 11Jan23 for a caravan trip (which has no planned return date) to WA so probably no “O” for me until much later in the year
Just a quick greeting and brief news and events listing for 2023. While you are in slow down mode and hopefully enjoying the warm weather wherever you are here are a few things to put on your calendar for 2023:
1 Rejoin the VOA by sending your renewal via Eventor (instructions below) or contact Debbie Dodd, OVic Membership
2 Register your “Working With Children” number with Aislinn Prendergast, OVic Secretary. All CS and volunteers should have one – and they are free if you are a volunteer. Just look at the website.
3 Pop your name and event help request back to Blake Gordon email@example.com so that we can fill out our rosters by end of January for 2023 Eureka events
Then our list of events for 2023 – note the red ones need volunteers by end of January to Blake; blue ones have responded already.
The Ballarat Winter Series events had four courses (Long Hard, Short Hard, Medium Moderate, Short Easy) in 2022. Probably stick with that format. You could add a 1 Medium MTBO course at Nerrina, and Fed Uni to give an option for keen ones.
