Pip gave a talk and slide show all about her recent trip to the UK and Malta for the World Cross Country Championships for secondary school students. The competitors all had a great time, and it was surprising which countries were not represented Pip was encouraged by the assistance our Club gave her to help get her on her way to this exciting event. Pip scored very well in coming 26th out of a field of 60 odd runners. This was an opportunity not to be missed and we as a part of the Rotary Organisation like to see the funds we have raised in our Trust being used in this way to assist young people progressing in their chosen sports and talents. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

THIS WEEK’S QUOTATIONS Two nudists were sitting in chairs on the clubhouse verandah discussing the state of the world in general. One said " have you read Marx" to which the other replied " yes, these cane chairs really are hell aren’t they ".
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can make a fool of yourself any old time.
Many an after-dinner speaker who rises to the occasion, doesn’t know when to sit down. CLUB BRIEFS: # Barry B. has passed on via e-mail the advice letter this week from Murray Butler (Rotary District Youth Exchange) asking for help to fill the gaps in Club Hosts - he still has to find homes for a 17 years boy, and a 17 years girl on Rotary Exchange in 2013. Read the attachment sent with Murray’s letter - he has a tough job arranging all of this, so any volunteers even for part of the stay period is welcome.
# Also there are a couple of places still available for Rotarians on the Rotary Youth Exchange 2012 tramp on Milford Track 24-27 November – you can contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
# Reminder that around 27th September there will be a general release in the cinemas around NZ of "The Kiwi Flyer" -- the story based on a boy preparing for the Collingwood St Trolley Derby whilst overcoming several obstacles . Most of the filming was done in Nelson with locals getting involved. The Club may like to make up a group booking to see this film
