Summer 2015 Newsletter

Once again we have a full program of activities, including some advance notices of trips away in 2016.  You will notice the absence of an AGM early next year.  Now that we are incorporated our financial year ends on 30 June and our next AGM will be in October 2016.

It’s been an eventful year for the Illawarra Ramblers Club.  We have separated from the WEA and have become an incorporated club. This has meant that we have had to change the way we do things.  To this end, we have updated our website to make it easier for members to renew their memberships and new members to join online.  We are encouraged that so many members have already paid their 2016 membership fees online, some have opted for the online newsletter instead of the printed version, and several have taken advantage of the discount offered for the Christmas party.

Please note – the 2015 Ramblers login is no longer working.  When you renew your membership you will receive your own username and password so that you can access member-only information.  Having logged in, it is good practice to log out when you are finished.  To do this, click on Login again and you will see the option to Sign Out.   Also, a reminder – to get the Christmas Party discount it is necessary to have both items – your online membership option and Christmas Party ticket in your cart before paying.  The detailed instructions which were sent out earlier this month are attached to the end of this Newsletter.

The close-off date for the Christmas Party is Tuesday 8 December and 2016 Memberships are due on Thursday 31 December.

We hope you all have a safe and happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you on many activities in 2016.
