Things are moving! We spent this last weekend in Griffith, NSW . We headed up for an OWC team meeting & I also gave a presentation to the Piper Association (a group of flyers) at the Griffith Aero Club. Unfortunately, the Melbourne weather prevented us from flying up & so instead we set out on road trip. The great thing about road trips is you get to try out local food along the way – this time we can highly recommend Nagambie Bakery’s sausage rolls!
Myself, Linda Lida, and my parents Brian & Roberta, drove up to Griffith, where Gordon, Bob, Paul and Michael live. We had our OWC team meeting on Saturday in which Brian & Roberta gave the team a run down of the donated accommodation and transport they have been able to secure at each stop-over location for the team around Australia. We greatly appreciate all Brian & Roberta’s efforts & the very kind donations from people all over Australia in helping to support our flight & spread our message: to raise the expectations of what people with disabilities can achieve & inspire all!
It was a great catch-up weekend for the team. Gordon and wife, Bronwynne, put on a mouth-watering bbq lunch ensuring we had enough energy to get through the meeting. It was another fantastic opportunity to get to know each other more. We have a great team!
On Saturday evening, I gave a presentation to the Piper Association at the AGM Dinner. I talked about my experiences with quadriplegia, how I fly, lessons I’ve learnt & how OWC began. Thanks to the Piper Association for inviting me along to the night! We had a fun time!
Now with my wedding next month, I’ll be kept extra busy until our next OWC meeting in mid-December.
Over & Out!
