Six members of the club spent half of the long weekend with several other Rotarians at the District conference in Ulladullah.  Our contingent included Jonathan Lyall providing a motivational presentation and stand on the DreamCricket program, which will hopefully lead to further expansion and more schools participating.
The motivational speakers included Sarah Brown, from the Purple House (, Winter Olympic gold medal winner Stephen Bradbury and General Sir Peter Cosgrove (retired) and several others.  We heard from our wonderful Youth Exchange students, and the winner of the 4 Way Test student speaking competition.  These, along with several other interesting speakers, a Roaring 20's dinner and raising around $3,000 for replanting at Noel Butler's bushfire ravaged property, Nura Gunyu, an Aboriginal education and cultural teaching property in nearby Milton (see here for more information) made it a very rewarding weekend.  
Overall a motivational weekend, with good learning and networking.
