*Registration now open for all events*
1 August 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director
Signed up with a new registration company this year after teething problems last year. It has been a slow process but we have now gone live, and I think the new forms are great. I will be interested in your feedback. In the first four years of the Carcoar Cup, I did everything myself re the registration, but for anybody who has done it solo it is hugely time consuming, and I am so pleased to have found a new company that I think will do the job really well.
Look forward to seeing you all in November!!!
With the Carcoar Cup we have always wanted to make it easy for groups to raise money for their favourite charities. Uralba Aged Care in Carcoar, the RFS and Shalom have been major recipients. This year we are welcoming the local Blayney High School with is entering a 26 person team into the Mile Long Club with the aim to raise a significant amount of money for the new Palliative Care Unit planned for Blayney. In this they will be helped by the Blayney Rotary Club, which is the major financial supporter of this initiative. We are also hopeful that Cadia Valley Operations will also enter a 26 person team to again raise money for Uralba.
(For this of you who are not familiar with the Mile Long Club I set it up with the thought that as there were 26 miles – the old measurement – in the Marathon, then if 26 team members could each run or walk for a mile of the marathon then the whole team does a marathon. Mile Long Team members can then raise sponsorship to support their cause. Members do a mile long course around Carcoar and are cheered out and back, so it is a lot of fun.)
PLEASE GIVE SOME THOUGHT TO HOW YOU CAN ENTER A TEAM AND WE WILL SUPPORT YOU TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY. If you can;t raise a 26 person team, then get in touch and we will help you out.
