Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan today announced that Australian schools would receive an educational kit in preparation for Remembrance Day on 11 November.

Mr Tehan said the educational kit would assist schools plan personal and respectful Remembrance Day activities.

“On the 11th day of the 11th month the world marks the Armistice and the official end of First World War,” Mr Tehan said.

“The First World War had a profound impact on our country with so many Australians killed and wounded.

“As a nation we must teach the next generation about the service and sacrifice of our ancestors as well the cost this country has paid defending its freedoms and values. Schools play an important role in ensuring the youngest members of our community have an understanding of Australia’s involvement in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.”

The educational kit will include a Remembrance Day commemorative poster, the 2018 DVA calendar, an educational resource and flyers promoting new online publications about Australian peacekeeping and the 2018 Anzac Day Schools’ Awards.

“This year’s Remembrance Day poster will honour the significant contribution of Australian Peacekeepers over the last 70 years,” Mr Tehan said.

“A key part of this year’s educational resource is the sixth instalment in the Century of Service series which explores stories of Australians finding joy and laughter in simple pleasures like sport and music amongst the horrors of war.”

Schools will receive the educational kit in October with resources also available to download via the DVA Anzac Portal.

Kalgoorlie Ride – August

Posted: 15 August 2015, in News

Going up to see some mates in Kalgoorlie become interesting on the way up. Bit of a rest stop with a blow in this bag, poke your tongue out and say aaahhhhhhhh, that sort of a stop.

Anyway the catch up went down well, what a fantastic night. There was a great spread and plenty of entertainment all night, it was awesome. Well done and thanks guys for the invite.

Don’t have many pics but here are some whilst on our rest stop.

 

2nd Annual RSPCA Ride

Posted: 15 March 2015, in Events, News

While our efforts are aimed at assisting Veterans and their families it was decided early last year to arrange an annual ride to support a great cause – the RSPCA. We’ve all heard at some point how animals are known to assist in the mental health and well-being of people, so with knowing this and knowing some Vets in need, we could not look past arranging something.

The 22 Crew (our supporter club) with some help from Veterans MC members arranged for the second annual charity ride to raise some needed money. Neville, one of the 22 Crew, along with the assistance of RSPCA Inspector – Kylie Green, arranged for an authorisation letter to allow the collection of money on their behalf.

Once ’22 Nev’ got the green light a ride was arranged from Port Beach Fremantle up the coast just past Hillarys to Whitfords Nodes. The plan being to stop here before moving onto the clubhouse for a much needed frosty (this is beer for you Jimmy). The route decided upon wasn’t standard for a large group, but given we always gravitate to the same rides out the bush and back blocks it was decided to mix it up and go somewhere with good scenery and umm, bikinis.

The start of the ride allowed for plenty of stories to be told before heading off. It went well with the only problems being sunburn and an extremely slow section through Cottesloe Beach where the art festival – Sculptures by the Sea was being displayed. This resulted in an unescapable ride with a stop of around ten minutes while those on four wheels worked out how to park their family tanks. Interestingly there wasn’t a complaint as the weather was hot and the bikinis and associated hardware were on full display and for the girls there were boardies and bare chests. At one point we thought we were going to lose half the group to this. Normally we are concerned with people going off on the corners, only this time we were concerned for people running up the arse of each other while pretending they weren’t perving. From some of the comments overheard the girls on the ride would have gladly done another fly-by given the opportunity.

Once back at the clubhouse an auction and a raffle were run utilising many of the worthy prizes kindly donated. We had the pleasure of a Comp Burn-Out Car (thanks Tom) do a quick demonstration with a new set of tyres while still on the trailer. Leaving it on the trailer was an attempt to limit any fallout from the authorities if they saw it un-sportsman like. A quick dab of the throttle and the fully blown LS1 filled the area with smoke and rubber. This was quickly followed by the auctioning of a ride in the passenger seat of the beast at the next Motor-Plex meeting. The winner of this prize, Alice Robb from Statewide Institute of Training then humbly donated the prize back to enable someone less fortunate and would further appreciate the opportunity. Between the donations, raffles and the snags sold, a total of $7100 was raised with 100% of this going directly to the RSPCA. As usual some of the money taken over the bar goes towards the running of Cypress Cottage to aid Veterans and their families.

In all it was a great day for a great cause. We would like to thank all the other clubs and free riders who attended and supported this. The following details are some simple stats on why we did what we did:
The government provides approximately 5% of the RSPCA budget. To break it down further the RSPCA receives $500,000 of which $300,000 is for the Inspectorate and the remaining $200,000 going towards animal education. The Inspectorate animals cost around $3 million dollars a year. The shelter in full, costs around $750,000 a month to run. Without straining the brain to much the gap comes from you……You can now understand why the RSPCA also needs support. You can contact them on 1300CRUELTY (13002783589).

Last but not least we would kindly like to thank the sponsors because without them this would not be a success. Support them when you next need something that they can offer, they are as follows in no particular order:

Perth HD
Complete K9 Solutions
Fur Baby Boutique & Café
Masters Mandurah
DJ-G (A Disc Jockey legend)
