We are still looking for someone who has an interest in video photography, to video our Seniors Concert on 24th August. Could you please leave your name at the office or contact me. We would also like to thank Margaret Dittberner one of the Tutors in our Patchwork & Quilting Class for sowing the curtains that we will be using in the Concert. Concert Tickets are now on SALE at the Office, get in before they are all gone.
At our last Committee meeting we decided to replace the chairs in Room 1, as the present chairs are showing signs for wear and tear. This will happen on or about the 7th August and we are looking for a home for the old chairs. If you know of anywhere that could use 20 chairs, can you please leave a note at the office.
Myanmar Tour February 2018Our next proposed U3A Tour will be to Myanmar (Burma) in February 2018. The tour will be for 15 days plus 2 overnight travel days. The Cost of this Tour will be broken into THREE components, Land Costs including Internal Domestic Flights, International Flights and Tipping and Contingency Fund. The Quote I have negotiated (this is for a Minimum of 10 people) for the Land Costs is $3100, (Note this is dependent on no great fluctuations in the Australian $) to this will be added International Airfares of about $950 and Tipping and Contingency Fund $400. Adding up to a Total cost for the Tour of $4450. On top of that you will have to buy a few meals say $150 plus your Spending Money.The $4450 cost includes: Accommodation, All Breakfasts, 12 Lunches & 9 Dinners, Tours & Guides, Land Transportation, Internal Domestic Flights, International Flights and Tipping plus what we call our Contingency Fund.We will be holding a meeting on Thursday 17th August in the MBR (west) room at 1.00PM to explain the tour and see what interest we have in the proposed Tour.Look forward to seeing your there.Tony NobbsTour Co-ordinatorMobile email@example.com
Yet again another successful and enjoyable Trivia morning took place during term break. Another is planned for WEDNESDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER and we are taking bookings at the Office.For more than six years the cost per player has been $8. At the last Management Committee Meeting I put forward a motion to increase the cost to $10, due to increasing costs. The Management Committee voted in favour of this increase, so the cost for Trivia will now be $10.Tables of 4 players, with maximum number set at 52 players. Come along to the office, reserve your spot and pay your fee. We can make up a table if you don’t have a team of 4.
