Is it really 20 years since we loaded the
FJ1200 on the Ghan to travel to the 1994 AGM in Alice Springs? Yes, it really
The 1994 AGM was our fifth AGM and our first visit to the Red Centre. We loved it then and we expect to love it
again! The Red Centre is a fascinating
and surprisingly spiritual place and is probably our favorite location of all
the 23 AGMs we have attended. The best
analogy I have to a Ulysses AGM is a Disney Family Movie where the weather and
setting is perfect and you are permanently surrounded by happy, smiling people!
You really must attend a few AGM's, only
then will you really understand what this wonderful club is all about. Apart from the usual AGM attractions
(Ulysseans!) we also took an outback bus tour which I really recommend if you
get the chance. Ormiston Gorge under the stars is quite an experience as was
AGM 1994 is also memorable for me because
my proposal to enfranchise ALL members, not just Sydney Basin members, together
with club funding for their attendance at committee meetings was passed, which
is why we have had committee members from all states since then. I hope you agree this was a good idea!
See you all at Alice Springs!
