Sydney, Sunday 01 January 2017 - Dear Garingal Members
Thanks for a great 2016 where we achieved **NSW Club of the Year** in recognition of our contribution to the quantity and quality of events made available for all our enjoyment. This was only made possible by You volunteering to perform the many tasks needed to host successful O-events.
Looking at 2017 we have an extremely busy schedule so we ask you to please consider including all or some of the following in your list of New Year's Resolutions:
1 - Renew my membership of Garingal.
2 - Volunteer for the Helpers Roster (send a mail to
3 - Volunteer as Setter, Planner or Organiser of an event (send a mail to
There is plenty of assistance at hand for First-Timers, just ask.
4 - Register for the Social events listed as Club Activities in Eventor.
5 - Attend as many events as I possibly can; certainly more than last year,
and absolutely Must Do the Australian O Carnival at Bathurst/Hill End.
Best wishes for a successful new year.
Sydney 23 October 2016.
Modern Times - In an effort to make life easier at the registration desk, Garingal brought contactless payment to the South Summer Series event at Clovelly on Sunday.
Expect the Tap and Go service to be available at GO Summer Series event; but please bring back-up cash until the technology has been proven to work reliably. The system is believed to work with Australian Visa and MasterCards (look for the payWave or payPass symbol on the card) as well as Apple Pay and Android Pay.
The event was a great success despite a fairly ambitious 'breeze' and some crossing of a graveyard (did you hold your breath?). Thanks to Rod Eckels for organising the day.
