Apologies for the late notice!
There will be a selection process held this Sunday 3rd April (tomorrow) at Nana Glen commencing at 8.30am for any members who wish to be considered for selection to represent Zone 9 at the State ODE being held at Camden in July this year.
Anyone who is interested needs to check the PCA NSW website (excerpt and link below) to confirm the required height they need to qualify for the State Championships. Realistically anyone seeking selection would need to be experienced and have a performance at a number of ODEs.
Any queries please contact Zone Chief Instructor Kriss Wood on 0427 534 810
