As we all know by now predicting the future would
give even Nostradamus a headache, and he would be smart enough not to bother to
try just now. We should, however, remain optimistic and press on. You would be
wise to ensure that any travel expenses are fully refundable or covered by insurance.
You will need to ensure that you satisfy the prevailing
Australian conditions of entry.
To assist with planning please indicate whether you plan to attend the 20th Gathering
and if so how many are likely to be in your party. If you are in the USA/Canada
please contact Larry Agin
and for Aus/NZ Sue Egan.
It is currently intended that the Gathering will be held in and around Brisbane
in Queensland, Australia. Brisbane is a popular tourist destination with easy
access to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas of Australia as well as being
an important national business and education centre.
Would also like ideas from you, our members, as to what we should focus on
in this Rally: are you actually happy for the Rally to be in Brisbane or do you
want to suggest an alternative location or locations in Queensland? Do you want
research events and visits or do you just want a programme of activities to allow
people to meet and chat? Nothing is simple these days. We look forward to receiving
your thoughts over the coming weeks.
The Gathering will return to the short form with the 23rd-25th June being the
"organised" days and the 22nd June and 26th June being the arrival and
departure days respectively. This should allow ample time for travel either before
or after the Rally. The Banquet is likely to be on the 25th June preceded by Chapter
