President Daryl welcomed 15 members & guest Minnie, Helen L  & Russell B

Apologies from John B, Sarah C, Neil M, Anne R, John N, Don D, Steve E, Bruce H & Dick J

We all enjoyed a beaut Chinese feed.

Paul gave an overview of the dog shows they went to in Victoria, where they had a great deal of success. Paul had an experience of having trouble distinguishing between the fuel of unleaded & diesel; maybe it should have been written in American gas terms!

Items of interest:

  • We have some invites from local schools to attend presentation nights, if some of you could find the time to represent our club.
  • Board meeting on Wednesday evening.
  • Coolamon Rotary AGM – Monday, 19 November.
  • 19th-20th November – the Rotary-sponsored Men’s Health Educational Rural Van will be at Bunnings, for those who’d like to have a general health check up for free.

Email to PDG George Weston from Lyndall McGrath RYLA D9710 Chair

Hi George

It was good to hear from you.  As of the closing of the Early Bird applications I have 15 RYLArians (5 from D9700 and 10 from D9710).  This number is up from this time last year.  Leaving things to the last minute seems to be a very hard habit for people to break – even with a financial incentive. Last year ¾ of my applications came in the last week of November so I’m confident we will receive 40+ from the two Districts but the cut-off date.

Last year I systematically telephoned all the Club Presidents in D9710 after the Early Bird cut off.  There always seems to be a percentage of Rotarians that respond better to telephone calls than emails.  I am planning to telephone D9710 Presidents early next week.

I hope the combined YE weekend was a success.  I’m sure it would have been a wonderful time.  I am putting together another newsletter for the RYLA committee and mentors that I will cc you into for your information.
