Compliments of the season!
Another year draws to a close and many of you will have retired your pitch pipes (at least for a few weeks) having completed your Club’s traditional end-of-year concerts and Christmas sing outs. But even as we start to wind down and relax many have already been busy planning for the coming year. Most Club committees will have started planning their Club events for 2019. Regional boards have locked in dates and venues for their local contests and workshops. Your National Council also has some big plans afoot to support you and keep you inspired, to help you gain maximum enjoyment from this great hobby.
The main focus of my portfolio is our annual National Convention which next year will be in Hobart. It will be held from 18th to 25th September including 3 days at Rokeby for the annual Harmony Academy. The main proceedings will be at the Wrest Point Hotel in Sandy Bay. The event will include some exciting new activities for members to get involved in – we’re keeping the details under wraps for now until the launch of the new Convention website early in the new year, however, the plan is to have a broader outreach into the public arena to promote our hobby to the masses.
So, mark those dates in your diaries, start planning your flights and accommodation, and hey, why not stay an extra week or two? Tassie’s a great O/S* holiday destination!
Best wishes to all of you and your families for a joyful Christmas.
