WIA to host 2011 Region 3 ARDF Championships
The WIA will be the host society for the IARU Region 3 ARDF Championships to be held in late 2011. The event is held every two years, alternating with the World ARDF championships. The last IARU Region 3 Championships, scheduled for late 2009 near Bangkok, Thailand, were cancelled at the request of the host society because of the risk of political unrest.
Geoff Atkinson - VK3AFA
Jack Bramham VK3WWW, WIA ARDF Coordinator and an International Class Referee will be responsible for the organisation and management of the event, working with the Victorian ARDF Group and supported by the WIA. The WIA will provide administrative support for the organisers. The event will be conducted in regional Victoria, though the venue has yet to be finalised. The IARU Region 3 ARDF Championships were last held in Australia in 2003, near Ballarat, Victoria. They were regarded as a great success.
Volunteers will be called for to assist Jack’s team. Look out for future information on the WIA site www.wia.org.au and on the Victorian ARDF Group site www.ardf.org.au .
