D9810 ROTARIAN OPPORTUNITY – Join “Team Riseley” in Toronto
Fellow D9810 Rotarians!
I have taken the rare step of contacting every Rotarian in District 9810 about something that I think will generate a lot of tantalising travel thoughts.
In 2017-18 Ian Riseley, supported by Juliet, will be the Rotary International President. We are all so excited and proud about this fantastic achievement. Aligned with Ian being the World President of Rotary is the opportunity for a huge contingent of Aussies, and in particular District 9810 Rotarians to attend the 2018 Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Canada. Our plan is to recruit a large support group called “TEAM RISELEY” to be present in Toronto.
This idea therefore presents a fantastic opportunity to travel as a group and spend some time prior to the convention exploring the wonderful scenery and highlights that exist in Canada. Accordingly, we have come up with a 2018 PRE CONVENTION TOUR OF CANADA. We have included all the special aspects of Canada: Rocky Mountaineer Train travel; Lake Louise; Banff and Niagara Falls; and much more.
The attached brochure outlines the basics of the tour that has been organised. At this preliminary stage we are seeking EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST to identify what level of support will exist for this concept. The potential size of the group will determine ultimate pricing issues.
I have asked President Helen Wragg, Rotary Club of Hampton, proprietor of Global Wise Travel, to manage this project. Helen is happy to answer any questions on this project. Her contact details are:

Please register your interest with Helen by Friday August 5th
