Important Update - Events and Meetings

With the evolving situation regarding Coronavirus in Australia, we are keeping a watch on the events and advice coming from the State and Federal Governments, Health Authorities and the QLD RSL Parade Committee. I wanted to provide some advice regarding how the Association will respond.

Functions/Events

Based on the most recent advice, the Executive have made the decision to cancel all RAQ organised/sponsored events until 30 May 2020, at this time we will reassess the current advice. The Events which have been cancelled are:

  • Darling Downs Gathering - 21 March 2020
  • ANZAC Day March and Function - Brisbane - 25 April 2020
  • ANZAC Day March and Function - Townsville - 25 April 2020 

Individuals who have pre-paid for events will be refunded or you can retain this as a credit either for a future function or online shop credit. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and advise your choice, if required have your banking details handy.

Monthly Meetings

We have been meeting with the Townsville Committee for the past several months via teleconference, so the April and May meetings will go ahead via this medium. The technology has some limitations, so to ensure we can cope with the capability, we will limit the number of attendees to members on the executive and some committee positions. Our webmaster will send those members required an invite with the details. 

We will as always provide the Agenda and Minutes for each meeting and I would encourage anyone with questions or comments to contact the Secretary or myself.

Membership & Online Shop

All other functions are web based and will continue as normal, with online shop items purchased sent out via Australia Post. 

The most important thing for all of us right now is put our family and friends first and look out for your neighbours and mates who may not be as well-resourced.

Please keep interacting with your Association with updates available via our website, weekly emails and through our ‘Contact Us’ page.

Yours Sincerely,

Jeff Signature

Chairman


RNN- Spanner Pack Delayed

Op Highroad 2016

Pictured Above: Soldiers on deployment during Op HighRoad Camp Qargha 2016

Hi Folks,

Unfortunately the next Spanner Pack for our ladies and men on operations will not go ahead due to the lack of supplies.

As most will know most supermarkets are restricting supplies to two of any item and Spanner Pack requires seventy five and up to one hundred and fifty of selected items.

We have notified HQ JTF Afghanistan of the situation and we will try to come up with an alternate plan for April/May. 

We have been in regular comms with the HOC BRIG Todd Ashurst. He has passed on his appreciation for the work the Spanner Pack Team does. The soldiers deployed overseas are being keep up to date with the Nation' situation and difficulties faced.

He also passed on the sadness on the ANZAC Day Services cancellations, and reaffirmed his commitment to serve as HOC and ready to engage where necessary 

Kindest Regards

Raymond Norman
