24/04/2014 – Goldfields Challenge Update

Goldfields SES Challenge – Saturday 31 May to Monday 2 June 2014

Team Nominations and ALL medical forms are due 31 April 2014

With less than 6 weeks until the Challenge all team nominations are due at the end of the month.  Once all forms are received then tax invoices will be sent to all unit contacts for payment of all fees to be paid by 15 May 2014 as cash or cheque payments will not be accepted at the Challenge.
The stands are:
Chainsaw                                                     4WD Techniques
Field Equipment/Comms                               Cliff Rescue
Urban Land Search                                        NURE
RCR/First Aid                                                AIIMS
Storm Damage                                             General Rescue
Camp Duties                                                

As the NURE stand is a day/night stand, headlamps/torches for all team members are required.  All personnel are required to provide their own water container whether this is a camelbak or drink bottle.  Water to refill these will be available all day.  Please refer to the equipment list on the information handbook for other items for the team and individuals to bring along.

To ensure we meet dietary/allergy needs, all personnel attending the Goldfields Challenge including staff assessors and casualties are required to submit a completed medical form. A reminder that all meals will be provided from Saturday breakfast through to Monday lunch (Monday lunch will be supplied for the first time this year as a trial).  A BBQ is available for teams to cook Friday night dinner on if you arrive early. 

The following is a start schedule for Saturday & Sunday morning:

0630    Breakfast
0645    Assessor Briefing
0715    All personnel briefing
0745    Depart for first stand

For OH&S reasons, all teams are required to be on site by 1am Friday night (sat morning!).
The change in times also means we can only accept maximum of 11 teams. This will be on a first in first service basis.  Units which nominate 2 or more teams will need to indicate which team will be a reserve team to allow all units to have a chance to enter.

Important Dates:
Team Nomination Form due   30 April 2014
Fees Payable by                     15 May 2014  (note no payments will be accepted at the Challenge)

The information handbook has been pinned on to our facebook site and the Volunteer Association website (following the links)
