The doors will open at 8.30 a.m. and the symposium will officially commence at 9.00 a.m. by the AHARS President.  This will be followed by a number of guest speakers, who will give talks on a variety of aspects of SOTA, parks awards, and portable operation.

There will be morning tea, and the presentations will complete at 12.40 p.m. and a BBQ will follow.

A ‘donation’ of $4.00 would be asked for the cost of morning tea (tea, coffee, cake, biscuits), and the BBQ which will include bread & salads.

If you do intend to attend, please RSVP to me prior to 1st March, 2014, so that I can arrange suitable catering.
