Bjork’s 18th Birthday

Friday, 15 Jun 2018

In July last year we welcomed our Exchange Student Bjork Hansen to our club.
Bjork, as most of our Rotarians are aware, is from the Faroe Islands and her hometown is Klaksvik.
Well last night we were proud to all celebrate her 18th Birthday which is today.
This year has been a whirlwind year for her and it is great to see her grow into a lovely young adult.
We all wish her all the best for today and the future wherever it may take her


The Science and Engineering Challenge

Wednesday, 13 Jun 2018

The Science and Engineering Challenge was held over 3 days this past 2 weeks and saw around 500 students from the local area compete for the opportunity to go to Darwin in September. The event has students doing practical hands on activities encompassing many science and engineering concepts.  It's great to see the varying creativity in ideas and solutions coming from our future leaders.   Day 2 was won by Riverside high school, while Launceston Christian School won day 1 and went on to also win the Super Challenge and are heading off to Darwin later in the year.


Guided Fly Fishing - Simone Hackett

Wednesday, 13 Jun 2018

We were indeed entertained last Thursday evening, especially if you were a keen trout fisherman, by Simone Hackett who is a fly fishing guide in one of the most picturesque areas of Tasmanian high countries.

This is where the water starts from springs in the mountains and runs down the rivers over granite sandy bottoms and gives great clear water trout fishing, this is mostly sight fishing and leads to exciting catches.

People from all over the world come to try their luck at our cunning trout and will stay in Tassy for long periods to take in this beautiful scenery.

Simone showed us a video which even if you were not into the fishing side of the sport, should not have been missed for the scenery of the lake country.

Thank you for your talk and I feel that the questions fielded by most Rotarians were an indication of how important this sport is to Tasmanian Tourism.
