HOH Feb 24th

                  As always our 1st outing is to Disabled Surfers Ass. at Collaroy Beach. Arriving 9am for rego (pay money, get changed into cossie and rashie, suncream etc) for 10am welcome and start at the rockpool on the surfboards, yummy lunch and then hit the “surf”!! then fun games on the beach! Don’t forgot DBA nsw waterbaby can’t be there as I’m in Orange! L So who going to be DBA nsw waterbaby this year???? :-/

                  RSVP NO LATER THAN Fri 17th Feb to Janne sms/phone/email or myself sms/email (all outings close 1 week prior to allow buses/cars and volunteers arranged in time for your fun HOH outing!!)

                  Volunteers we would also extremely appreciate if you also let us know if you are coming as last year one bus went back to Blacktown and if we knew who was coming and on the way we might had sms saying don’t come all the way just meet at Blacktown etc This will make it easy with other outings as well when working out support the night before. Many thanks J

                  Members- when you email/sms/phone in to Janne or myself if you are aware you are being supported by house staff or a support worker we would appreciate if you kindly mention it when RSVP as then we can match you up on the graphs and when trying to workout who needs to be supported etc Many Thanks J
