51st Annual Convention

The 2015 Convention will be held on Saturday June 6th and Sunday June 7th which is the Queen's Birthday Weekend.
The Australian Fox Hunting Championships will once again be a 2 day event with the first event of the Sniffer Hunt starting at 11:00am on the Saturday as usual.

The venue will again be the 1st Mount Gambier Scout Hall in Margaret Street, Mount Gambier.
Entry Fee this year is only $5.00 for both days.

Our usual catering will be available at the venue this year.

Ross from Strictly Ham will be attending again this year. It is a great opportunity for people to drop in and see the latest offers available on new equipment. We thank Ross very much for his support.

There will also be a number of tables of pre-loved equipment for you to look over and purchase.

Presentations will once again be held at the end of the convention in the Scout Hall. There will be some short presentations on different topics. Following the presentations there will be a dinner. Numbers are limited so bookings are essential.

For dinner bookings at $25.00 per person you can contact the secretary on vk5sr@wia.org.au
