Dear John and Cluster 6 Club Presidents,
I wish to confirm that your District has arranged a Group Study Exchange (GSE) exchange with German District 1900 from the Rhine/Ruhr area. Their team of five [a team Leader and four team members] will be in our district from Sunday 26 February through to Monday 27 March 2017 when they depart. Our team of also five will be in the German District from 28 May through to 25 June 2017. The end dates of these exchanges coincide with attendance at the District Conference.

The GSE Committee has agreed on an itinerary as follows:
Sunday 26 February – arrive Port Macquarie and stay motel;
Monday 27 Feb – 1 March – Port Macquarie;
Thurs 2 – 4 March – Coffs Harbour;
Sun 5 – 7 March – Armidale;
Wed 8 – 10 March – Inverell;
Sat 11 – 14 March – Narrabri and visit to Lightning Ridge;
Wed 15 – 17 March – Coonabarabran;
Sat 18 – 20 March – Tamworth;
Tues 21 -22 March – Taree;
Thurs 23 – 26 March – Laurieton inc Conference.
Monday 27 March – Leave Port Macquarie

I have arranged for the team to fly into Port Macquarie on Sunday 26 February to commence their exchange.

What I am asking for is assistance from the Cluster 6 Clubs to provide accommodation for the nights of 18,19,20 March and to liaise with the Coonabarabran Club for travel to Tamworth and then with Taree clubs for the next stage of their exchange. The clubs will also need to assist in providing vocational exchanges and also a regional tour re sightseeing etc. See attached draft page for example. Further details of their team will be provided in due course along with more details of each individual’s vocational requirements.

The team comprises:
Team Leader ;Dr Werner Efing from the Rotary Club of Bielefeld Waldhof. Vocation – Syndicate Manager
