This year we have a very special Guest Speaker:
Adventurer and author, Tim Cope will share his experiences of “The Trail of Genghis Khan.” Inspired by a desire to understand the nomadic way of life, he embarked on a remarkable journey: 6,000 miles on horseback across the Eurasian steppe from Mongolia, through Kazakhstan, Russia, and the Ukraine, to Hungary retracing the trail of Genghis Khan.
Tim has received accolades internationally for his documentary films, and writing – most recent, his book ‘On the Trail of Genghis Khan’ won the Grand Prize at the 2013 Banff International Mountain Book Festival, and was short-listed in the non-fiction category of the Australian Book Industry Awards. (see www.timcopejourneys.com and www.facebook.com/timcopejourneys).
Tim is hoping to use the night’s presentation to fund-raise for two charities that he works with: The Down Syndrome Association Of Mongolia, and a school dormitory project for nomad school children in the village of Khovd in Western Mongolia. Please note: A $10-15 donation (for adults at the dinner) to the charity would be very much appreciated.
Tim will also be selling, and signing his book and DVD’s on the night ($30 each or one of each for $50!)
- Second hand equipment sale (bring it along, someone may buy it. Label it with your name and the asking price).
- DVDs and other activities for the kids.
- Lots of talk, It’s a great night to meet members & get fired up for the coming season.
- The Ian Ryan Club Award will be presented.
- New & old members most welcome.
