Extension of time for Club Grant Scheme applications
Applications for Club Grants for 2011 closed on 25 July. In the WIA’s release of 27 July, we reported that only a disappointing three applications had been received.

Since then one club has asked that a late entry be accepted, and offered very legitimate reasons for the lateness of the lodgement of the application. The WIA Board has decided to accept that application.
It is also conscious of the fact that other clubs may be in a similar position and so it has decided to also accept any other late application that is lodged at the WIA office by not later than 4 pm Victorian time, next Tuesday, 9th August 2011. Reasons for the lateness of the lodgement are not required.

Clubs are reminded that this year Grants will be given for projects falling in to either of two categories:
1) Projects and activities to be conducted before 1 June 2012 to attract new amateurs, but focussed on people under 25; and
2) Amateur radio projects that are useful and innovative and that utilise both information technologies and radio communications.
If you club is planning to take advantage of this extension, it would be helpful if you could let the WIA Manager Mal Brooks know as soon as possible. Email Mal malb @wia.org.au or telephone Mal on (03) 9729 0400 between 10 and 4 any day. However, clubs are advised that any applications lodged after 4 pm next Tuesday 9th August will not be considered.
