G ‘day
 
September was an exceptionally busy month.  Mainly due to the Australian New Zealand Conference and Governor training in Hobart.  Susan and I also visited many clubs and I attended the World Peace Day dinner in Cowra.
 
 The drought appeal is taking up a lot of our resources in manpower right now and a report follows.  We have been given a RAWCS Project # to collect funds for the drought and to issue tax receipts.
 
 Club visits are a lot of fun and we do have a wonderful team of Rotarians in our district and I hope that you all get to meet one another at the Griffith 2019 Conference March 29-31st 2019.  Please do not forget to send me your club conference convenor, so far I only have 5 names in.
 
We will be holding the D9700 2018-2019 Club Presidents Forum and our D9700 AGM on Saturday 20th October in Young at the Ex-Services Club.  ALL Club Presidents are asked to attend or send their proxy if unable to attend in person.  This will be followed by a D9700 Board meeting in the afternoon.
 
 Let me have any stories and photographs on whatever you are going to for World Polio Day October 24th.
 
Congratulations to Wagga Wollundry RC for their exceptional Gears and Beers weekend.  They had over 2,500 bike riders and raised around $170.000 for the local Wagga Wagga community.  Story in this bulletin so go to the following page below and click on teh pdf file for the full October Newsletter.
 
 
 Enjoy the next Rotary month of October which I call moving month, moving into your projects for 2018-2019, we have 9 months left to achieve our goals.  Have fun and above all be THE Inspiration!
 
Yours in Rotary
