You’ve got 5 weeks (September 13th) to submit to email@example.com or upload to a Facebook Post (and tag Gemma). Bonus … Continue reading Isolation Competition

The Whittlesea Event will still occur at a date to be determined. Unfortunately the committee does not believe this pandemic will be “over” or anywhere near normality for a gathering as big as ours. I know there are many of you that will be very disappointed, but this decision was not taken lightly. For those … Continue reading Whittlesea Event Cancellation & 2021 MEGA Announcement
