Apart from the AGM, the next few months appear as though they will have little activity. However, October becomes very busy, and sometimes there is more than one event on a weekend. All this makes now a good time to join the organisation, and be ready for these events, and for activations, which often happen during the summer period.

On June 6 & 7 WICEN NSW supported the running of the True Grit Obstacle Challenge held in Lower Portland with something approaching 2,000 competitors over the weekend. WICEN set up a commercial VHF network to allow management, safety, and first aid messages to be passed to the event managers and to first aid providers. The repeater at Kurrajong was used to keep in contact with the outside world as mobile phone coverage was very poor. A few new WICEN members participated who gained experience towards their VRA induction.
