Just a quick message this month – a busy one for all of us here, with a guest appearance at the Classic & Wooden Boat Show in Sydney, a new website to launch and of course, the long-awaited opening of Expressions of Interest for the Boats Afloat section of the 2109 MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival. (Applications for Boats Ashore and Model Boats open slightly later). Hats off to the whole team who participated in writing, designing and testing the new website. There are still kinks to be ironed out and lots more material to add, but we hope you will enjoy the brighter, cleaner design and the simplified way it works. Of course, the best feedback we can get is from you – drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you spot something that isn’t working the way it ought to. We are working towards combining the existing newsletter site (awbf.com.au) with the main site to make it a one-stop shop for all you need to know about the coming event.
