Planning is now well underway for 'Benalla Rugged Up' in August. A number of planning meetings have already been held, with the next meeting to be held on Friday 21st June at 1 pm in Gallery 2 at NEA.
"We will be looking at the progress we have made, and planning our next steps. To be successful, we do need people to assist with the steps needed to be able to stage the event.' Joy Shirley
Progress to date includes planning tasks such as setting up a time line from 'go' to 'whoa'; commencing the process of seeking approvals from VicRoads; commencing the Council Event Application; investigating a Community Sponsorship Grant process to assist with costs; contacting Waminda re insurance coverage for volunteers during installation and removal; and more.
Collection bins and some posters have now been distributed, and some posters.
The group is looking for help from volunteers to assist with organisational details and planning; distribute more of the posters; market the event; prepare finished products ready for installation and assist with the installation.
The preparation of products ready for installation will commence from 1 July at the Gliding Club at the airfield.
If you would like to assist with the organisation of 'Benalla Rugged Up', your attendance at the planning meeting at NEA at 1 pm on Friday 21 would be most welcome.
