Gold Coast Rally Committee urgently requires your help

Our committee numbers are low, and filling the following positions is essential if the 2018 May weekend Rally is to go ahead. Last year we had over 600 attendees for three days of fun, food, fellowship and of course great meetings. The five of us currently on the committee know we cannot put on a successful rally without the following portfolios being filled:
Venue Coordination, Communications and Registrations.
Please call Linda on 0450 684 233 or email linjay21@gmail.com if you can help. The committee meetings are held at Lawson Street Southport on the second Sunday of each month at 1.00pm.
