2016 – That’s A Wrap.

Well, that went quick. What can you say about 2016 apart from… ‘Where did it go’ We will kick off with a review of the 2016 Outback Challenge. Unfortunately, due to flooding around the Broken Hill area the organiser of the Outback Challenge was forced to cancel the event until 2017. This was a big disappointment to the team but …

Mid Year Review

G’Day Ladies and Gentlemen, So it’s mid year already, and we have been working hard on bringing RSL’s together and modernising as an entity. We have hit many roadblocks along the way but we continue the good fight as there are people out there who still need help. So, why not pick up where we left off, Two Up Pale …

‘Two Up Pale Ale’ – It’s HERE!!!

Gday Guys and Girls, Exciting times here, with the Launch of our Young Veterans ‘Two Up Pale Ale’ finally coming to fruition and hopefully coming to a tap near you. It took several months and a lot of nay saying from various parties to get the Pale Ale up and running. But we all know servicemen and women as well …

2016 Activities – Go Hard

Jeff Rock climbing

G’Day Team, Again, I find myself apologising for my tardiness in getting back to all of you guys. It has been a wild ride in the last few months what with a few of us taking on new jobs and moving around this great country. So, lets start off with what we have been up to. Well, there was the …

2016 – It was here before we got to see it off!

G’Day All, Firstly, my sincere apologies for falling off the radar with the website. The hustle and bustle of life just did what it does best and took control, like it does every year at christmas time. We still had a bit going on over Christmas on our other social media, but it was a bit quiet, so sorry for …

Final Preparation

So since June we have had more ups and downs, but nothing the Young Veterans team couldn’t handle. We have only 5 Days until we depart the shrine of remembrance in Melbourne on a 5 week adventure all the way to the northernmost point of the Australian mainland. Unfortunately, due to mechanical issues out of our control, we have had …

G’Day everyone. We have dates for our big trip this year!

So last update, Scott and I had attended the ANZAC Appeal Launch with RSL Victoria. This was an amazing opportunity as we were representing the “contemporary” veterans side by side with our predecessors. It was great engaging with the community at the Shrine and promoting the fantastic ANZAC Appeal. Scott and Myself, along with our parents and family attended the …

Trip Coming Up

blog - 3 - Young Veterans

Gday Ladies and Gents (thought id change it up) So the big trip, originally planned for 2014, has had its setbacks. With a lack of interest from sponsors and ESO’s, it was going to be a touch hard to get up and running. Since then, we have had some good support from RSL sub branches, small businesses and individual families, …

The Stressful Bits

blog-4

At times, we have nothing but stress trying to get this up and running. We have had people doubt our integrity and question our motives; it wasn’t until we finally got the assistance of the Dandenong RSL that we managed to take some steps towards success. We have approached numerous external service organisations and asked them to sponsor us and …
