Meeting of Monday 17th April
The Regional Academies of Sport (NSW)
For the Southern Sports Academy Wagga Wagga weekend, Anne Rzeszkowski helped organise volunteers from our club to work on their canteen on Sunday April 23rd. Our thanks to Barry, Ian, Bear, Anne, Mary, Lexi, Henk, Marilyn, Vicki, Maureen, Garth, Adrian and Wendy.
The Regional Academies of Sport (NSW) Incorporated (RASi) network covers each of the points of the compass in NSW. The Vision of RASi is ‘To be a collective, efficient and integrated lead organisation for Regional Academies of Sport.’
We received this letter of thanks from Mark Calverley the CEO:
“Good morning all,
I hope you all arrived home safely and will be able to enjoy a well-earned rest over the next couple of days. I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous effort in helping us deliver an amazing Academy Games event over the weekend.
Visiting the venues throughout the weekend I was inundated with people expressing how great the sports were operating, and how much they were enjoying this year’s Games.
As you all know, the weekend was just the final showpiece of a lot of hard work, planning and teamwork. Without all your dedicated efforts, this event would not be possible, so I just wanted to send you a massive thank you from all the team at SSA for helping us raise the bar in our second year as host.
As the dust settles, a survey will be sent out in the next short period, we would love your feedback so that we can make the 2024 Your Local Club Academy Games bigger and better”.

JUST FOR LAUGHS
Answers to the last puzzlers:
- Easier one: Make the equal sign a not equal sign with a single line through it.
- Harder one: Not only does the number 8,549,176,320 contain each of the digits 0 through 9 once (which is not that special!), the digits are arranged in alphabetical order (when spelled out).
This month’s puzzlers: This week’s puzzlers are in the form of a scavenger hunt of District 9705. These questions were taken in their original or modified form from a D9705 training session. Feel free to consult the D9705 website to find the answers to the questions (in fact, it will be hard to answer most of the questions without doing so!).
Easier one: 1) Who is the District Governor-Elect of D 9705? 2) Who is the Area Governor-Elect of the D9705 area that includes Coolamon? 3) How many Rotary clubs comprise D9705?
Harder one: 1) Which club in D9705 has the most members? 2) Which club in D9705 is furthest north? 3) To what club does Rob Uhl belong?

Thanks to all the hosts who met the team at Wagga Wagga airport. Thanks also to Lance and Robyn Gillespie for bringing out Norm and Linda who arrived from New Zealand.
Many thanks to Myffy Collette and Bernadette Milne as well as Susan Glassford for the salads. The BBQ was cooked by Steve Exton and Alex Thompson with the steaks supplied by Henk Hulsman.
