Other details:
At all levels of Rotary we are aware of cost.
For training of all our teams there is limited District finance to provide the basic training materials and unfortunately nothing to cover attendee’s accommodation or meals.
You can see from the program your training requires an overnight stay.
It is up to each Club to offer an attending President Elect a reimbursement of costs if that is required.
For this weekend the Total catering costs will be $70. This includes Saturday sandwich lunch, afternoon tea and Buffet Dinner plus Sunday . morning tea and lunch.
If in an emergency you are unable to attend PETS, it will be necessary to contact DGE Maurie, asap. Mobile 0427 668 821 or
De and I look forward to seeing you all.
