After Lesley's talk last week I think we will all see Sashi in a new light. Thanks to Lesley for her insight into her exchange student experiences and I hope we can take her up on her offer to tell us more about her life in Japan.

We have a busy time coming up - Show Gates, Garden Expo and International Car Rally all within a month. Paul will have details of changeover night shortly so expect that date to be within the next month also. The board has had a meeting to start some planning for next year and one event that was discussed in some detail was the Golf Day we will run in conjunction with Cooroy. The date is set for September 30th and we will need a full club effort to make it a success as our major fundraiser for the year. The first effort needs to be getting the word out to potential sponsors and players. This and other planning matters will take up the next few meetings (when State of Origin doesn't interfere). As this week is game 1 we will have a casual night at the golf club with finger food rather than a full meal.
