If you picked up a membership form at last week's Field Day, you will find most clubs have WICEN members who can fill in the Proposer and Seconder portions.

WICEN is supporting a number of Alzheimer's Australia Memory Walk & Jog events. These are fairly short, and ideal for new members. The next one will be the Western Sydney event on Sunday 13th March, at Penrith. An operator who can operate from a bicycle, this would be especially useful. Port Macquarie is on April 3, and the event over The Bay Run at Drummoyne in Sydney is May 1 (Mayday). Albury-Wodonga's event, with the 10 km run option crossing from Wodonga to Albury, and back, is on May 22.
