Last Tuesday morning we had the pleasure of hearing from our good friend Liane Heinke about her many years’ experience growing olives in the Hunter Valley.  Unfortunately, the weather conspired to keep the number of attendees down but those present learnt about the hands-on harvesting of the crop and the process of then producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We then enjoyed a tasting of the finished product.


As you are aware Iain, Cathie and myself recently visited the Royal Far West’s Centre for Country Kids located in Manly. This organisation will be a beneficiary of funds raised from our involvement in the World Festival of Magic. We were very impressed with the fantastic facilities provided in this facility and a synopsis of our visit compiled by Cathie will be forwarded to all members.


Once again this year we will be holding a Halloween Party at Cammeray Golf Club and I invite you to RSVP to either Cathie or Warren to confirm your attendance to this fun event.


On Tuesday, 24 September our club member Allen Colburt will speak on his many year’s involvement at the Avalon Airshow. Prior to Allen’s talk we will hear from Bruce West on the progress of ticket sales and other aspects of the Magic Show.
