Website improvement planning meeting – Monday 16 October 2017

When: 8 pm, Monday 16 October – after Senate

Where: Hut 1, Addison Road Community Centre, Marrickville, NSW

Who: Anyone who would like to contribute ideas and work to improve Rowany’s website.

What if I can’t make it but I still want to help? This is just a planning meeting, we’re hoping to generate some action items that we’ll work on gradually over the next few months and encourage each other as we go.

Rowany’s Lochac Hero Cloak 2018

Rowany will be creating the Lochac Hero Cloak to be presented at Rowany Festival 2018. We are in the planning stages. We will be seeking help to create the cloak soon, so keep an eye out if you’re interested.

The design is based on an extant half circle cloak. It will be red ground with a Rowan tree flanked by two white/silver pegasi and words around the semi-circular hem.

For now, these are some quick sketches of possible positions of the pegasus just on a quarter circle that would probably be mirrored on the other side.
