Email from Garry Malpass. To come straight to the point. I was hoping I could get a message across to the members who retired medically unfit regarding rehab providers and insurance companies. The background is, that once you go out on workers comp the insurers will send you to a rehab provider so they can return you to work in suitable employment with a new employer. Under the workcover act you have the right to choose your own rehab provider. Therefore the crunch of the matter is, I can put them in contact with a really good rehab provider if they wish. So if any members are interested they can email me and I will give them the details. Thanks Garry Malpass. gmalpass@tpg.com.au

I'd just like to remind members that if they have any old photos, or stories, they wish to publish on the web.  You can either download the photos yourself by making an account on the photo application, or, if that is too daunting, you can attach them to an email, or post them to me on a cd and I will place them on the web.  If you make an account on the photo application, please email me so I can authorise it!  Also, if you provide some info on the photographs I will add that too!     Barry Fiddler.
