AJFWA Policy on Mileage Expenses: To help offset some of the financial burden of travel to the 2019 Spring Conference and AGM, attendees with clubs in good standing, operating their own vehicles, will be able to claim the expense of travel outside a 300 km radius for the event. AJFWA will reimburse mileage over 600 km, round trip, at a rate of $0.25/km. This is geared to encourage attendance from our members that have significant distances to travel by “levelling the field” with the centrally-based clubs. We also encourage carpooling wherever practical.

Things to bring

  • Silent Auction Item - wow us with your creativity!
  • Red Uniform Shirt
  • Money for Silent Auction
  • Pajamas for movie night
  • a dozen cookies or squares to share at movie night (no peanuts please)
  • water bottle
  • credit card for incidental room charges
