Licence Upgrades

Congratulations to Jake Rowe, Lucas Khawam, Rob Vile and Ian MacDonald on successfully completing their Flag Observation Days during the 2019 August Access (17-18 August 2019) event. 👏

The weather was kind for Jake and Lucas on the Saturday, however was not so kind for Rob and Ian on the Sunday.

It will be fantastic to see you all get rid of those pesky p plates!

Once, thank-you to the four of you for coming down and assisting at a race meeting which was so very under manned.

The opportunity is there for any of you to complete your flags at days like this in the future, let me know and I can assist in finding a suitable day/event.
