Tuesday 6th February 2018  - President Fran's Message:
I’m enjoying the present cooler weather, which means I can THINK! I am sure you must be too. It’s a relief to see  the revival of plants,  vege and lawns!  
In Brief:
President’s Guest (the 1st) – Mr Wayne Bosley, Principal of Mt Aspiring College (MAC), attended the Tuesday meeting as a guest which coincided with the presentation of a cheque for $6200 (proceeds from the Rotary Club’s summer book sale) to the MAC Student Group travelling to Spain. The Summer Book Sale was a combined effort with the students and the Rotary club. It was a very successful fundraiser.   
Membership Satisfaction Survey coming up., it will be presented using Survey Monkey – Pete Barrow has in hand at the moment. Will keep you posted.
Rotarian Cyclotourist  Pascal Temmar, from the Rotary Club of Noumea Ducos Bulari came and went Saturday 3rd Feb. I hosted him for 2 nights and Derek Howarth hosted him for dinner.
Tres bon Derek! …..more to follow
Take a look at the link to follow his trip
Rotary Speech Competition  - coming up. Information now passed on to the Youth Committee. There is a March deadline, let’s see if we can send some participants.
Vege Swap – Great seeing the produce last week, especially the very large silverbeet leaves, I could see that they were great as fans!
Magazine Recycle Keep it going!
Mountain Biking Sunday - not quite a total fizzer, 2 ½ Rotarians turned up. Any ideas for more participation, let’s share?
Friends of Rotary (FOR) – If you have anyone interested in helping us out at our fundraising events, then let me know. FOR is a good way for interested parties to get to know how the Rotary Club works. This could lead to more members.   
Coming up
ClubRunner Calendar updated to April, this is the start of a very busy 3 months! 
REMINDER: Please check duty roster in the bulletin. If you are unable to perform the duty please find someone else and notify Admin & me!   
NO APOLOGY required this week but let me know if you are coming to Rotary Park BBQ Glendhu Bay purely for organisational purposes.  
The Wanaka Rotary Club - Out there and Doing it!

Members who are absent for a meeting (s) but not on Leave of Absence should in the first instance arrange a swap with the member doing the same duty next month. If this is not successful enlist someone else and return the favour later :-)


It was Bonjour to Rotarian Cyclotourist, Pascal Temmar from Noumea Ducos Bulari, on his arrival in Wanaka on the 31St of January, an hour before his expected arrival. The hurricane like tail wind was responsible for the fast time from Haast to Wanaka. I met him at the Albert Town Bridge expecting him to be shattered, but he looked fresh.  I told him that there was a big hill to get to my place but it was short. I felt guilty ‘cos it was Gunn Road and Pascal had just ridden 500kms in 4 days. He survived.   

Pascal was completely absorbed in his tour of NZ and had just covered 3300kms since his start in December. He spent the 2 evenings practising his English and planning his next sector, which involved, weight allowances and nutrition requirements, all calculated to the nth degree, necessary when you are on a bike! The bike was heavy. Pascal was technologically savvy and I learnt a lot from him. He had 1 map of NZ but also spent some time on Google Maps refining his itinerary.  He also used GPS and set up a page on his Rotary Club website with the link which allows anyone to follow his progress as he rides through NZ 

We talked about Climate Change and the Farm School Projects that he was raising money for. He told me he loved NZ, specifically the bush, mountains, seascapes and the many people he met on the way.  

On Sunday 2 February, the weather had improved and Pascal rode off to Alexandra. He stopped at the Wanaka Rotary sign opposite Puzzling World, took pictures then waved goodbye.  

Pascal bon chance and au revoir a bientot.  


Tuesday 6th Feb catch up instead of our normal meeting!


Rotary Park Glendhu Bay instead at 5.30pm weather permitting.   
Bring your own food, beverages, chairs, whatever..... BBQs will be available.
Maybe we can car pool?  
Please let me know who's coming so we have an idea how many tables etc   ... we need to reserve on the day.
