October Drop In

The regular monthly Drop In for October will be slightly different than usual.

ACS NSW Gold sponsor Coptercam will demonstrate their Aerial Camera System and due to restricted air space at ACS HQ the flying demo will take place at North Sydney Park.

Footage recorded at the demo will then be taken to HQ for screening and a Q&A with Glen McGarry of Coptercam will follow.

Kick off will be the usual 6pm on the 18th October but proceed directly to the the corner of Ridge and Miller streets North Sydney rather than to HQ.

For those attending the Q&A only HQ doors will still be open from 6pm. Ridge and Miller is about 150 meters from HQ.

HQ address details are at the bottom of this page.

Phil Balsdon - Thoughts & Wishes

ACS NSW would like to convey its thoughts and best wishes to long standing member Phil Balsdon, his partner Alison and to his daughters Anika and Tarryn. Phil last week suffered a stroke and after surgery is now out of intensive care with his condition listed as stable. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Very Successful Shadowcatchers Evening

The ACS Shadowcatchers Book Event at the Cremorne Orpheum last week was a huge success with over two hundred people filling the theatre.
