Some feedback from Peter's visit to the Desert Uplands in Qld.


Yesterday went really well; we had about 60 people attend which is an excellent number for out here. I have looked at the feedback sheets from yesterday and the only negative things were that the Committee didn’t keep an eye on the time, so smoko and and lunch were late (our fault), and that people would have liked to have some handouts as it was a lot of information to take in. We did record the day so this along with Peter’s PowerPoint will be available to anyone interested hopefully when the newsletter goes out.

Overall a great day, very informative and the practical demonstration was very well received.
