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.

Unto the populace,

With pleasure I present the latest venue information for Tuesday Night activities:

Fighter Practice, both Heavy and Fencing, new venue location is: Addison Rd Community Centre 142 Addison Road, Marrickville NSW 2204. This is to be the new permanent venue. The time for Petersham Town Hall renovations was extended so we needed to search for a new venue and this is the one, enjoy!

GST for Event Stewards

Unto the Populace of Rowany does the Reeve send Greetings,

It has been brought to my attention that there is some confusion over how to calculate the GST component for event reporting.

The good news is there’s not much calculation required by you. The total amount collected from the event fee (Cell E27) is divided by 11 to create a value in cell J28 (GST collected).

To fill out “GST paid”, add up the amount of GST you paid from receipts or invoices (hall hire, food, miscellaneous) and enter it there. Remember that the original receipts or invoices must still go to the Reeve for filing and double checking purposes.

“GST Liability” should automatically be calculated by the spreadsheet. If not, the liability is the difference between the amount of GST collected and the amount of GST paid (or, in spreadsheet cell terms “=J28-J29”).

I hope this clarifies the matter satisfactorily.

Yours in Service

Jean-Christophe le Saussier

Reeve.

VENUE Tues Nights – All Venue Changes (21 Jan 2014 until TBA)

Unto the Populace.

As our normal venue of Petersham Town Hall is going to be unavailable from the 21/01/14 for maintenance, the following arrangements have been made:

NOTE: If you just put the address or name of the hall into Google Maps, you’ll possibly have difficulty finding it! There is a church on the corner of Marrickville and Petersham Roads, Herb Greedy Hall is opposite the church on Petersham Road. Looking at the image below, the entrance is where the phone booth is, right of the cars a few cars back.

Initial further details are available here.
