The Dog Days of Summer

Hello my Fellow Canalians!

How bout this heat/rain/wacky weather?

Incase you haven't seen any Canadian news (or FB/twitter statuses), there's been a slight cold snap back home. Check this out:

As much as we can get homesick, this time of year I sit back and relax in the sun, knowing that I don't have to take a blow torch to unfreeze my pipes in the house!

Weather aside, ss we roll into the second month of 2013 things are really starting to gear up for the CAC..... 

January started with an “FYI” event at the East Coast Showcase, which was a fantastic night, and it would be great to see more members there in the future. 

Due to low numbers the Crooked River wine lunch was cancelled/postponed. If you were interested in this event but couldn’t attend that date, please email me at and I will try to coordinate another afternoon lunch.

I am excited to announce that February marks our return to monthly mixers!! Our new monthly mixer venue is the City Hotel, located at the corner of King and Kent St in the CBD. This is a casual, relaxed venue, which we hope will improve mixer turnout, and encourage more socialising between members. Monthly mixers occur on the 1st Friday of every month (that's today!), so I hope many of you pop in for an after work bevy :)

The CAC’s first activity event for the year is snorkelling, and will be held on February 10th, at Shelly beach in Manly. A big thank you to Mick Patterson and Linda Johannesson for making this happen! If you are looking for some general snorkelling info, please see our Latest Club News for “Mick’s handy snorkelling tips”.

Other upcoming FYI events include the return to Hockey Night in Sydney, Pub Crawl Trivia, and musician Ben Caplan in Sydney. Check out our "Upcoming Events" page for more info.

The committee met for the first time this past month and we were able to cover a lot of ground at the meeting. As always, the need for event hosts for walks, restaurant/wine nights, and general volunteers were highlighted, and the committee welcomes any expression of interest in those two areas. Please email Ron at or Catriona at to register your interest to help.

Sadly, due to personal commitment’s, your ‘El Presidente’ must send her regrets for the February events. I look forward to meeting many of you in at our March and April events, and don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to the other Committee members :)
