I trust this finds you in good health & spirits.
For the past couple of weeks I have delayed this announcement, really hoping that we (all of Australia & the rest of the world) could see an end to this wretched COVID-19 virus.
With the continuing cases in Victoria & NSW, closed QLD borders and severe quarantine/travel restrictions, we (the executive) have agreed that the proposed gathering at Kilkivan cannot go ahead in a safe manner like it has over the past few years.
It is with GREAT reluctance that I have to inform you that the proposed Kedron Owners Group (KOG) gathering @ Kilkivan in November 2020 has been cancelled.
Attendance from interstate members, would be non existent & members from Qld would/could be hesitant to attend.
That being said, with anticipated attendance being very marginal, we have decided that this years Christmas Gathering is not viable!
Five top line presenters, had already committed to this gathering, I sincerely hope they will appreciate this decision & will consider attending at a later date.
Re: The AGM, we (KOG) have been in communication Queensland Office of Fair Trading- about 'Tenure of members of the management committee' and the effect of COVID-19 affecting the operation/management of 'Social Clubs' such as ours.
The correspondence we have received from the Office of Fair Trading, indicates the we have a six month 'grace' period to hold an AGM from the originally proposed November 2020 date. With that in mind, we will keep ALL financial members up date, with news on a date, venue and what style (yet to be decided) we will conduct the AGM.
In closing, I would like to remind all members who have NOT paid their renewal subs, they are NOW DUE!
If you could attend to this as a priority, it would be very much appreciated, renewal notices were sent out over a month ago.
Please, stay safe!
Looking forward to seeing you down the road.
