The Final official Event for 2017 is the AGM and buffet lunch



PLEASE NOTE CORRECTION - the date for the AGM is Sunday 19th November and not the 26th as previously erroneously stated.

The AGM and Buffet Lunch will be held in the Trafalgar Room on Sunday the 19th  of November 2017 at the Royal Natal Yacht Club. 

Cost: R180-00 per person for a buffet of starters, carvery, seafood, desserts, cheese and biscuits plus tea and coffee.

If attending the AGM please be there by 11h30 for a 12h00 start. Friends and guests are welcome and if wishing to skip the AGM 13h00 will be a good time to arrive. Please note that whilst payment may be paid in advance by EFT cash on the day is preferred to enable full payment to our host.

Beverages are available at reasonable prices and barmen will be able to serve those not wishing to break from the AGM.

Provision to pay annual subs in cash will also be available on the day.
Early Bookings are essential to provide the RNYC with numbers for catering.

Blog Usage

This site has not been visited sufficiently to warrant continuation.   😢

1. During the first week since it's existence there were 7 visitors who registered as followers. Since then no further registered followers.
2. With all posts there has been no feedback in the form of comments except for several listed as anonymous from the authors.
3. Many people have verbally asked committee members asked for information such as
i. Where can I get a copy of the Constitution?,
ii. Where can I get an Application form for membership?,
iii. Who are the current Committee members?,
iv. How can I contact the New Zealand or Australian High Commissions?,
v. What other ANZA groups exist worldwide and do they have websites?,
vi. Who can contribute to the content of the blog?,
vii. Where can I get notification of any new blog entries?,
viii. Are past Newsletters accessible?,
ix. Where do visitors to the blog come from?,

The answer to the last question does not appear within the blog content. However the current statistics suggest in the last week the following:

France
22
Netherlands
22
Germany
8
Ireland
5
New Zealand
4
Ukraine
4
South Africa
4  !
Malaysia
1
United States
1

Strangely all the other questions are answered on the blog.

4 visits a week from South Africa does not justify continuing with the blog.

Something Quite Different from Australia

One of Sydney's most popular radio stations, 2GB, interviewed Dick Smith who is a very successful businessman, on the issue of immigration in Australia.
Allan Jones who is one of 2GB's most listened to talkback hosts interviewed Dick Smith on this issue of continued immigration and it's impact on major city development.

This interview "says it as it is" and is worth the 15 minutes it takes to listen.
The discussion was recorded as a podcast and can be directly accessed by clicking here.  (It does take a while to load)

Other podcasts and listen live can be reached by going to the website 2GB.com

This is a shift from the norm on the site and we would like some feedback. It might be interesting to create an additional page that has occasional stories from both New Zealand and Australia.
