    Young Achiever in Vocational Excellence Following the club meeting on Tuesday night can I again ask for members support with nominations for this years Young Achiever in Vocational Excellence Award. If you are unable to personally nominate someone a contact you have through a number of services may hold the key to a nomination. Any thoughts or queries can be clarified by Kevin OBrien. Lots of publicity on young achiever through a channel 9 interview with last year Young Achiever Joel Rea, Kevin has a phone interview with 4CRB and the project has received substantial write up in local press.

    Project Laos

    This potential project Is gaining interest and momentum following the board meeting on the 13th

    March. A group of Rotarians from the club are planning a trip to Laos, possibly in October to see firsthand how we can be involved in this worthwhile International project. Graham Sivyer has made an important contact with a fellow Rotarian in Vientiane. Any member interested in joining the group travel to Laos should contact Graham.

    Fund Raising A couple of big fund raisers over the next two weekends with the Gold Coast home show this weekend and Bluefit Foundation swimming marathon next weekend. Thanks to club members rostered to these two activities.

    District Conference The programme attached is certainly an invitation to a great Rotary weekend. On his return from New Zealand next week Jim Hawkins will be finalizing a number of conference activities including seeking assistance for the silent auction. Saturday roll call at Conference is a great opportunity for us to get together and voice our presence.

    Guest Speaker

    I have no idea why Uwe should be in this picture,

    but he seems to be enjoying himself. Last meeting night, our guest speaker from "RBS Morgans" was Felicity Cooper---felicity analysed the "Money Market", for us. Felicity comes from a Rotary Family---she was a "Rotary Youth Leadership Awardee" She went to Japan, with Rotary Her subject was, "The Year Ahead 2012". She suggested that the current state of play in the market, will see the market recover to 5,000 again by Xmas.! Alluding to a likely US led recovery. The title--"The Black Swan" is suggested as a good book to read. The US crash--with huge lots of unsold real estate resulting--from which defaulters can simply walk away from loans and assets, under US Law--- In Detroit, there are so many unoccupied homes--these are available at prices lower than Automobile prices!!
