Our annual Golf day against the Lions Club and our own Club’s golf championships was held earlier this month at the Akarana Golf Club.  The weather was kind and the course in good order.   Our team of 8 retained the Richwhite Cup with 5 matches to 2 and 1 drawn.  Barry Brown won the Proud Cup, David  Ambler the Whitney Cup for over 60s and the Len Houzzer Cup for Lions was won by Mike Lomas.  Best Stableford was Don Jane with 33 points.  Thanks to the Akarana Golf Club, Murray Peck and especially Denis Black for ensuring a successful day.
RYLA is a week-long leadership development programme for 20-28 year-olds hosted and sponsored by Rotary Clubs in our District 9920.  RYLA is an experiential live-in programme designed to help young people develop their team work and communication skills and fulfil their potential as leaders.  The programme consists of a combination of:
  • Presentations and Workshops facilitated by community and business leaders particularly focusing on leadership development,
  • opportunities for the exchange of ideas, opinions and experiences in discussion groups etc,
  • open sessions, sport and keep fit exercises,
  • the opportunity to experience and practice leadership skills in action.
  • involvement in a community activity and with the host Rotary Club.
Applications are now open for this year’s RYLA programme (closing date for applications in 30 April), which will run from Saturday 29 June through to Saturday 6 July.  If you know someone who would be interested in attending this year, please go to the following link for more information and the registration form, which when completed needs to be forwarded to Jacqui in the office: https://www.ryla.co.nz/
Secondary school education in Fiji is neither free nor compulsory, which is why we have been supporting a project since 2012 to help address this issue.  The Rotary Club of Tavueni Island has set up a fund to pay for secondary school education for students who would not otherwise be able to attend high school.  The success rate for these students, most of whom are from single parent families, is very high, with many going on to study at university.  Our aim this year is to raise $2000, to match the District grant we have received, allowing our Club to donate $4000 towards this very worthwhile project.  If you would like to make a donation, payments can be made to the following account and you will receive a receipt for tax purposes in due course:

Early Bird Tickets are now on sale, so get in quick to save on your 2019 Humanitarian Engineering Conference entry, which will be held on Saturday 27 July 2019 at Auckland University.  Professionals save $30 and students save $10 on normal ticket prices.  Engineers from home and abroad present best practice examples and the beneficial project outcomes of a humanitarian approach to engineering.  Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the benefits and impact of socially aware engineering and will be equipped to use what they have experienced to make a positive social change.  The event will consist of a series of interactive and dynamic sessions that:
  • Engage participants through presentations, workshops, and panel discussions
  • Are led by inspiring speakers from New Zealand and around the world
  • Will build links across the engineering, academic and development sectors and beyond
Tickets are $130 / $170 for professionals and $40 / $55 for students (members / non-members) and can be booked through https://www.ewbnzconference.org.nz/  If you have any questions contact our Conference Manager, Ikmal, at conference@ewb.org.nz.  Arrangements can be made for discounted corporate ticket packages.

The Rotary International's 2019 Convention will be held in Hamburg, Germany from 1 to 5 June.  There are already nearly 30 people from different NZ Clubs attending, including RCA President Brett O’Riley and myself.  If you’d like to know more about this event and are possibly interested in joining us, would like to fly with and/or stay with other NZ Rotarians in Hamburg, let me know or reach out directly to the District Coordinator for this Convention: Jennie Herring: herringjennie@gmail.com  Or if you would like to register, then please go here.  If you register prior to Dec. 15, 2018, you will receive an early-registration discount, which is US$395 vs. US$495 or US$595 at later dates.  District Governor Ingrid Waugh, also mentioned the possibility of a 10-day “Zurich-to-Amsterdam Cruise” leading up to the convention  and Jennie Herring can help us get the black shirts that all the NZers wear - which will really make us stand out!  So please let us know if you are interested in attending, so we can organise a couple of fun Kiwi/RCA activities, while in Hamburg!  And also feel free to run any questions by us
